GETTING READY TO INSTAll ThE REFRIGERATOR
Congratulations on your purchase of the Samsung French Door Refrigerator. We hope you enjoy the
state-of-art features and efficiencies that this new appliance offers.
Selecting the best location for the Refrigerator
•
•
•
•
A
Location with easy access to the water supply.
A
Location without direct exposure to sunlight.
A Location with level (or nearly level) flooring.
A
Location with enough space for the Refrigerator doors to
open easily.
• A
llow sufficient space to the right, left, back and top for air
circulation.
If the Refrigerator does not have enough space, the internal
cooling system may not work properly.
• P
lease ensure that appliance can be moved freely in the event
of maintenance & service.
• A
llow clearance to the right, left, back and top when installing. This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your energy bills lower.
• Do not install the Refrigerator where the temperature will go below 10 ºC(50 ºF).
When moving your refrigerator
To prevent floor damage be sure the front levelling legs are in ther up position (above the floor). Refer
to ‘Levelling the refrigerator’ in the manual (at page 11).
To protect the finish of the flooring, place the protection sheet such as packing carton under the
refrigerator.
CAUTION
When installing, servicing or cleaning behind the refrigerator, be sure to pull the unit straight out
and push back in straight after finishing.

ChECkING ThE WATER DISPENSER lINE
A water dispenser is one of the helpful features on your new Samsung Refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the Samsung water filter removes unwanted particles from your water. However, it
does not sterilize or destroy microorganisms. You may need to purchase a water purifying system to
do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate properly, a water pressure of138~862 Kpa is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
If the Refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 138Kpa), you can install a
booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
Make sure the water storage tank inside the Refrigerator is properly filled. To do this, press the water
dispenser lever until the water runs from the water outlet.
Water line installation kits are include with unit. You can find it in freezer drawer.

CONTROllING ThE TEMPERATURE
Basic Temperature of Freezer and Refrigerator Compartments
The basic temperature and/or recommended temperature of Freezer and Refrigerator
Compartments are -19°C(-2°F)/3°C(38°F).
If the temperature of Freezer and Refrigerator Compartments are too high or low, adjust the
temperature manually.
Controlling the Freezer temperature
The Freezer temperature can be set between -14°C(8°F) and -25°C(-14°F) to suit your particular
needs. Press the Freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature
display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16°C(4°F).
The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C(8°F) and -25°C(-14°F). When the display
reaches -14°C(8°F), it will begin again at -25°C(-14°F).
Five seconds after the new temperature is set, the display will again show the actual current freezer
temperature. However, this value will be changed to the new temperature.
Controlling the Refrigerator temperature
The Refrigerator temperature can be set between 7°C(46°F) and 1°C(34°F) as your particular needs.
Press the Fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display.
The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process.
Press the Fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will begin
adjusting towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.
The temperature of the Freezer or the Refrigerator may rise when you open the doors too
frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side.
This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the Freezer and Refrigerator temperature return
to their normal set temperatures, the blinking will stop.
If the blinking continues, you may need to “reset” the Refrigerator. Try unplugging the appliance,
wait for around 10 minutes and then plug the power cord back in.
