SETTING UP THE REFRIGERATOR
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 refrigerator.
(refer to installation instructions in this
manual)
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
Twin Cooling System
• The refrigerator and the freezer have two evaporators. Given this independent system, the freezer and the refrigerator are cooled individually and are, therefore, more efficient. Food odor from the refrigerator
does not affect food in the freezer due to separate air flow circulation.
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.
Xtra SpaceTM
• Vertical room next to the ice maker in the freezer provides space for
pizza etc.
Door Alarm
• Beeper reminds you that the door is open.
Xtra FreshTM
• Optimized humidity control keeps vegetables & fruits fresh.
Deodorizer
• Reusable deodorizer keeps the refrigerator air fresh and odor free.
CoolSelect ZoneTM Drawer (on some models)
• User can select Quick Cool, Thaw and Select buttons to quickly
chill, thaw and cool items. Select Soft Freeze, Cool or Chill to control
the temperature of drawer.
Beverage StationTM (on some models)
• The Beverage StationTM is convenient and reduces energy consumption,
because you do not need to open the refrigerator door to access stored
beverages and snacks.
NOTE
• This operation instruction covers various models.
• The characteristics of your appliance may differ slightly from those described in this manual.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 1.4 ~10㎏f/㎠ is required.
In this range a 100 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 secs.
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 1.4㎏f/㎠ ), you should install
a booster pump to compensate.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled initially. Push the water dispenser lever until the water runs from the outlet.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
- Power on the refrigerator and press the lever on the right of the
dispenser until water runs out through the water line and all air has been empty.
- At this time, check for any possible leakages at the join point in the water line.
After securing the water line, move the refrigerator to the required location.
Once the refrigerator is in position, do not move possibly.
INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter.
1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off the valve of the
water supply line.
2) Run water through the dispenser about the first six glassfuls
of water. This will clean the water supply system and clear
air from the lines.
3) Additional flushing may be required in some households.
4) Open the refrigerator door and check if water leaks around
the water filter.
NOTE
WATER
ICE
• A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly spurt from the dispenser.
• Before reinstalling the water filter, remove the wine shelf (Optional).
Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray.
1) Lift up (①) and pull out (➁) the ice maker bucket in the freezer.
ICE MAKER
2) When you press the test button, the ice cube container is
filled with water from the water supply tap.
Check the amount of water (see the illustration below).
CHECK THE WATER LEVEL
If the water level is too low,
the ice cubes will be small.
This is not a problem with the ice maker
but of the water pressure in
the pipe, and occurs frequently.
When this problem occurs, contact
a service person to check the
amount of water supplied.
