CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
A water dispenser is just 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 of 20~125 psi (pound per square inch) 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 20psi), 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 available at extra cost from your dealer. We recommend using a water supply kit that
contains copper tubing.
Connecting to the water supply line
1. First, shut off the main water supply line and turn the ice-maker off.
2. Locate the nearest cold, drinking water line.
3. A
fter connecting the water supply to the water filter, turn your main water supply back on and flush four
or more gallons into a bucket to clear and prime the water filter.

fitting.
3. Tighten the compression nut onto the compression fitting. Do not over-tighten the compression nut .
4. Turn water on and check for any leakage.
Only connect the water line to a drinkable water source.
If you have to repair or disassemble the water line, cut off 1/4“ of the plastic tubing to make sure you get a snug,
leak-free connection.
Installing the water filter.
1. Remove the water filter cover( 1 )
2. R

Keep the cap in a safe place for later use if you don’t
use the filter.
3. R
emove the water filter from the box and put a
replacement indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
Place a sticker on the filter that dates six months in
the future. For example, if you install the water filter in
March, put the “SEP” sticker on the filter to remind you
to replace in September. That way you’ll know when it
is time to replace the filter. Normally, a filter life is about
6 months.

CHANGING THE WATER FILTER
The “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To
give you preparation time to get a new filter, the red light will come on just before the capacity
of the current filter runs out. Changing the filter on time provides you with the freshest, cleanest
water from your fridge.
1. Take a new water filter and put a month indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
The date on the sticker must be six months from the current date. For example, if you are replacing
the water filter in March, put the “SEP” (September) sticker on the filter to remind you to replace in
September. Normal filter life is about every 6 months.
2. Remove the new filter’s protective cap and remove the old filter.
3. Position and insert the new filter into the filter housing.
Slowly turn the water filter clockwise to align with the printing mark on the cover, locking the filter in
position. Make sure to align the water filter label mark with the center of cover filter printing as illustrated.
Remember, do not over-tighten.

seconds to reset the filter schedule.
5. Lastly, run about six glassfuls of water through water dispenser to clean the water supply system.
Make sure that water flows clearly again before drinking.
Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly or water may drip from the dispenser.
This is due to the fact that there is still air in the line.
Do NOT use the water or ice dispenser without a water filter cartridge because the water line may
become blocked.
Ordering replacement Water Filter
For replacement waster filter you can visit your local service center or contact the Samsung Parts distributor.
Be sure the replacement water filter has the SAMSUNG logo on the box and the water filter.

Troubleshooting
SOLUTION
The Refrigerator does not work at all
or it does not chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the Refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
•Is the back of the Refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air from
circulation?
The food in the
Refrigerator is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display set to the correct temperature?
Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room too low?
• Did you store the food with high water content in the coldest part of the
Refrigerator? Try moving those items into the body of the Refrigerator instead of
keeping them in the Cool Select Pantry™.
You hear unusual noise or sounds.
• Check that the Refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the Refrigerator too close the wall and therefore keeping air from
circulating?
• 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 in relation to the
temperature of the Refrigerator interior.
The front corners and vertical hinged
section of the appliance are hot and
condensation is occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical hinged section
of the Refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the Refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the door open
for a long time.
Ice is not harvesting.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before making ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
• Is the Freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the Freezer temperature lower.
You can hear water bubbling in the
Refrigerator.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the Refrigerator coolant liquid circulating
through the Refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in the Refrigerator. • Check for spoiled food.
• Foods with strong odors(for example, fish) should be tightly covered.
• Clean out your Freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food.
Frost forms on the walls of the Freezer. • Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the foods stored for efficient air circulation.
• Is the Freezer drawer closed properly?
Water dispenser is not functioning.
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Has the water supply line tubing been crushed or kinked?
Make sure the tubing is free and clear of any obstruction.
• Is the water tank frozen because the Refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
