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. Once the refrigerator temperature is sufficiently low, you can store food in the refrigerator. After starting the refrigerator, it takes a few hours to reach the appropriate temperature. MAJOR FEATURES Beverage Station (optional) • 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.

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.

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. 35 DA99-00494B (EN)-1.3 9/3/07 10:32 AM Page 36 Ambient Room Temperature Limits This fridge/freezer is designed to operate in ambient temperatures specified by its temperature class marked on the rating plate.
