safe disposal of this product.
• In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas-air mixture if
a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the size of the room in
which the appliance may be sited depends on the amount of
refrigerant used.
• Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage. If
in doubt, consult your dealer. The room must be 1 m³ in size
for every 8 g of R-600a refrigerant inside the appliance. The
amount of refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on
the identification plate inside the appliance.

Additional tips for proper usage
Safety Information
• In the event of a power failure, call the local office of your
electric company and ask how long the failure is going to last.
• Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will
not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should
minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
• Should the power failure last more than 24 hours, remove and
discard all frozen food.
• The refrigerator might not operate consistently (frozen contents
can thaw or temperatures can become too warm in the frozen
food compartment) if sited for an extended period of time in a
location where ambient air temperatures are constantly below
the temperatures for which the appliance is designed.
• In case of particular foods, keeping it under refrigeration can
have a bad effect on preservation due to its properties.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there is no need
to manually defrost your appliance. This will be carried out
automatically.
• Temperature rise during defrosting complies with ISO
requirements. If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of frozen food while the appliance defrosts, wrap
the frozen food in several layers of newspaper.
• Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed completely.
• The temperature of two star section (sections) or compartment
(compartments) which have two star symbol ( ) is slightly
higher than other freezer compartment (compartments). The
two star section (sections) or compartment (compartments) is
(are) based on the instruction and/or the condition as delivered.

Saving Energy Tips
This appliance is intended to be used in household
and similar applications such as
• staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working
environments;
• farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other
residential type environments;
• bed and breakfast type environments;
• catering and similar non-retail applications
English 23
Safety Information
• Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with adequate
ventilation.Ensure that it is not exposed to direct sunlight
and never put it near a direct source of heat (a radiator, for
example).
• Not to block any vents and grilles is recommended for energy
efficiency.
• Allow warm food to cool down before placing it in the
appliance.
• Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw. You can then use
the low temperatures of the frozen products to cool food in the
refrigerator.
• Do not keep the door of the refrigerator open for too long when
putting food in or taking food out. The shorter the time the door
is open, the less frost build-up you’ll have in the freezer.
• It is recommended to install the refrigerator with clearance to
the back and sides. This will help reduce power consumption
and keep your energy bills lower.
• For the most efficient use of energy, please keep the all inner
fittings such as baskets, drawers, shelves on the position
supplied by manufacturer.

Checking the water dispenser line (optional)
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 will need to purchase
a water purifying system to do that.
In order for the icemaker to operate properly, water pressure of 138
~862 Kpa is required. Under normal conditions, a 170 cc paper cup
can be filled in 10 seconds.
If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below
138 Kpa), 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.
NOTE
Water Line installation Kits are included with unit. You can find it in
freezer drawer.

Cleaning the refrigerator
Caring for your Samsung Side-By-Side Refrigerator prolongs the life of your
appliance and helps keep it odor and germ-free.
Cleaning the Interior
Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild
detergent and then wipe dry with a soft cloth. You
can remove the drawers and shelves for a more
thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry them
before putting them back into place.
Cleaning the Exterior
Operations
Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a
clean, soft cloth.Spray water onto the cleaning cloth
instead of spraying directly on the surface of the
refrigerator. This helps ensure an even distribution
of moisture to the surface. The doors, handles and
cabinet surfaces should be cleaned with a mild
detergent and then wiped dry with a soft cloth. To
keep your appliance looking its best, the exterior
should be polished once or twice a year.
WARNING
• Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox™ for cleaning.
• They may damage the surface of the appliance and can create a risk of fire.
If the rubber door seals are dirty the doors may not
close properly, and the refrigerator will not operate
efficiently. Keep the door seals free of grit or grime
by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and
damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
CAUTION
• Do not spray the refrigerator with water while it is plugged in, as it may cause an electric
shock. Do not clean the refrigerator with benzene, thinner or car detergent for risk of fire.
