Safety information
Safety information
• Because these following operating instructions cover
various models, the characteristics of your refrigerator
may differ slightly from those described in this manual and
not all warning signs may be applicable. If you have any
questions or concerns, contact your nearest service center
or find help and information online at www.samsung.com.
• 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.
• Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes could ignite or cause
an eye injury. When refrigerant leaks from the pipe, avoid
any naked flames and move anything flammable away
from the product and ventilate the room immediately.
- Failing to do so may result in fire or explosion.
• It is hazardous for anyone other than an Authorized
Service Person to service this appliance.
• Do not store explosive substances such as aerosol cans
with a flammable propellant in this appliance.

4:48:32
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.
Safety information
Saving Energy Tips
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.
• Select 580 mm cavity depth. A smaller cavity depth will
result in a higher energy consumption.

• The specified energy consumption is
based on the condition of a 30 mm gap
from cabinet to rear of product. The
product will work properly even with a
gap which is less than 30 mm, however
it consumes slightly more energy.
• We recommend using a cabinet that
is 18 mm thick with hinges less than
20 mm thick.

STEP 3 Flooring
• The surface to install the refrigerator
must support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• To protect the floor, put a large piece
of cardboard on each foot of the
refrigerator.
• Once the refrigerator is in its final
position, do not move it unless
necessary to protect the floor. If you
have to, use a thick paper or cloth such
as old carpet along the movement path.
STEP 4 Adjust the levelling legs
Installation
CAUTION
• The refrigerator must be levelled on a flat, solid floor. Failing to do so can cause damage
to the refrigerator or physical injury.
• Levelling must be performed with an empty refrigerator. Make sure no food items
remain inside the refrigerator.
The refrigerator can be levelled using the front legs that have a special screw (leveller) for
levelling purposes. Use a flat-head screwdriver for levelling.
To adjust the height of the left side:
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the front left leg. Turn the
leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.
To adjust the height of the right side:
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the front right leg. Turn the
leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.

Do you hear abnormal sounds from the refrigerator?
Before calling for service, review the checkpoints below. Any service calls related to
normal sounds will be charged to the user.
These sounds are normal.
• When starting or ending an operation, the refrigerator may make sounds similar to a
car engine igniting. As the operation stabilizes, the sounds will decrease.
Buzzing!
Clicking!
or Chirping!
• While the fan is operating, these sounds may occur. When the refrigerator reaches the
set temperature, no fan sound will occur.
SSSRRR!
Whir!
Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting
• As the refrigerator cools or freezes, refrigerant gas moves through sealed pipes, causing
bubbling sounds.
Bubbling!
• As the refrigerator temperature increases or decreases, plastic parts contract and
expand, creating knocking noises. These noises occur during the defrosting cycle or
when electronic parts are working.
Cracking!
• For ice maker models: When the water valve opens to fill the ice maker, buzzing sounds
may occur.
• Due to pressure equalizing when opening and closing the refrigerator door, whooshing
sounds may occur.
