Checking the water
A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful
features on your new refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the 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 of 138~862Kpa is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) cup can
be filled in about 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.
After you have connected the water line, 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 available at extra
cost from your dealer. We recommend using a
water line installation kit that contains copper tubing.
Installing the water line
Connecting the water supply line to the
refrigerator.
There are several items that you need to purchase
to complete this connection.
You may find these items sold as a kit at your local
hardware store.

1. Turn ON the main water supply and supply water
from water supply line.
2. Run water through the dispenser until the water runs
clear (approx. 6 to 7 minutes). This will clean the
water supply system and remove air from the lines.
3. Additional flushing may be
required in some households.
4. Open the Refrigerator door
and make sure there are no
water leaks coming from the
water filter.
Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly,
otherwise water may drip from the dispenser.
This means that there is still air in the line.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT : The pressure of the water supply
coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to
the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be
between 35 and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to
be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa.)
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system
is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the
reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace
the filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill after heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when used
in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.
Remove the water filter.
If you have questions about your water pressure,
call a licensed, qualified plumber.
controlling the temperature
Basic temperature of Freezer and
Refrigerator Compartments
The basic temperature and recommended
temperatures of the Freezer and Refrigerator
Compartments are -19°C and 3°C respectively.

frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot
food is placed inside.
- This may cause the digital display to blink. Once
the Freezer and Fridge 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.

while it is in the refrigerator. Remove it to clean it.
caution
When you insert the Ice maker tray, be sure
that the tray is well centered at the entrance.
Otherwise, the tray may be stuck.
Water clouding phenomenon
All water provided to the refrigerator flows
through the core filter which is an alkaline water
filter. In the filtering process, the pressure of
the water that has flowed out of the filter is
increased, and the water becomes saturated
with oxygen and nitrogen. When this water flows
out into the air, the pressure plummets and
the oxygen and nitrogen get supersaturated,
which results in gas bubbles. The water may
temporarily look misty or cloudy due to these
oxygen bubbles. After a few seconds, the water
will look clear.
Please wait 1 second before removing the cup
after dispensing water to prevent spills. Do not
pull out the lever dispenser after dispensing ice
or water. It comes back automatically. Ice is
made in cubes. When you select “Crushed”, the
ice maker grinds the ice cubes into crushed ice.

The refrigerator
does not work at all
or it does not chill
sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Check if the set temperature on the digital display is warmer than the freezer or fridge inner
temperature. If it is, set the refrigerator colder.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation?
The food in the fridge
is frozen.

•
You hear unusual
noise or sounds.

•
•
•
The cabinet-door
sealing area of the
appliance is hot
and condensation is
occurring.
Ice Maker is not
producing ice.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low.
Try setting the refrigerator to a warmer temperature.
Is the temperature in the room too low? Set the refrigerator warmer.
Did you store the food which is juicy in the coldest part of the refrigerator? Try moving those items
to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping them in the colder areas or bins.
Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation?
Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 2 inches from the wall.
Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. It is normal and occurs because various
accessories are contracting or expanding according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
• If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The
sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical hinged section of the
