Once you have performed the following steps, your refrigerator should be fully operational. If not, check the power
supply and electricity source. If you have any questions, contact your SAMSUNG service center.
Place the refigerator in an appropriate location
with reasonable clearance between the wall
and the refigerator.
(refer to installation instructions in this mannal)
Set the temperature control to the coldest
temperature and wait for an hour. The
freezer should get slightly chilled and the
motor should run smoothly.
When the refrigerator is plugged in,
the interior light should come on when
you open the doors.

• You do not have to open the main door to access
frequently used food in the extra
refrigerating compartment. This saves time
and money.
Twin Cooling System
• The refrigerator and the freezer have two evapora
tors. Given this independent system, the freezer
and the refrigerator are cooled individually as
required and are, therefore, more efficient. Food
odor from the refrigerator does not affect food in
the freezer due to separate of air flow circulation.
Deodorizer (optional)
• Reusable deodorizer keeps the refrigerator air
fresh and odor free.
Multi-Flow System
• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every
shelf level. This provides even distribution of
cooling inside cabinets to keep your food fresh
longer.
CoolSelect
ZoneTMDrawer
(optional)
• User can select
Quick Cool, Thaw
and Select buttons
for quickly chill, thaw
and cools items.
Select Soft Freeze,
Cool or Chill to
control the tempera
ture of drawer.
Door Alarm
• A beeper reminds you if the door is left open.
High humidity for fresher food
• You can keep food, fruit and vegetables fresh for
longer because your refrigerator supplies highly
humidified cold air. This can be up to four or five
times more effective than a normal refrigerator.
Energy-saving fridge/freezer
• Power consumption is kept to a minimum by distributing cool air separately to the refrigerator and
freezer.
Faster cooling times
• The power freeze function allow you to freeze food
more quickly.
Abundant supply of ice and cold water
• The ice and water dispenser provides ice and cold
water at any time.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE (OPTIONAL)
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 1.4 ~ 10 kgf/cm2 is required.
In this range a 100 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 1.4kgf/cm2), you should install
a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is preperly filled initially. Push the water dis
penser lever until the water runs from the outlet.
A universal water supply kit is available at extra cost from your dealer. The refrigerator manufacturer
recommends using a water supply kit containing copper tubing.

TROUBLESHOOTING
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 seting 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?
Ice is not dispensed
• Did you stop the ice making function?
• Is there any ice in the ice storage unit?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve
open?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm?
(Set the temperature lower)
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the
water supply line before making ice?
The food in the refrigerator is frozen
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to
the correct temperature? Try seting it to a warmer
temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room too low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in
the coldest part of the refrigerator.
You can hear water bubbling in the refrigerator
• The bubbling comes from the refrigerant circulating in
the refrigerator and is normal.
You can hear unusual noise or sounds
• Check that the floor is levelled and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too near to the wall?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the
refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound may be heard from inside the
refrigerator, but this is normal. This occurs because
various accessories are contracted or expanded.
Frost forms on the wall of the freezer
• Is the air vent blocked?
• Allow sufficient space between the foods stored for
efficient air circulation.
• Is the door closed properly?
No water is supplied
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve
open?
• Is the water supply line crushed?
• Is the water tank frozen because the refrigerator
temperature is too low? Select a warmer setting on
the display panel.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The front corners and sides of the cabinet are hot;
condensation occurs.
• Anti-condensators are installed in the front corners of
the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Condensation can occur when you leave the door
open for a long time.
There is a bad smell in the refrigerator
• Wrap food with a strong smell so that it is airtight.
Throw away any rotten food.
