MAJOR FEATURES
TDM System (Time-Divided-Multi-Evaporator system)
• Each compartment has an evaporator. Also Microprocessors and a
refrigerant-control-valve control the refrigeration cycle. The 4 evaporators enable improved efficiency and humidity in the fridge. Food odor
from the refrigerator does not affect food in other compartments
because the cooler and air flow systems are separate.
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.
Door Alarm
• Beeper reminds you that the door is open.
Xtra FreshTM
• Optimized humidity control keeps vegetables & fruits fresh.
Arctic Select ZoneTM Drawer
• Arctic Select Zone Drawer is convertible from freezer to refrigerator
by TDM system. You can select Power Freeze, Freeze, Soft Freeze,
or Cool according to foods.
Fresh Select ZoneTM Drawer
• You can select Soft Freeze, Chill, Cool or Fresh according to the food
stored.
In Cool and Fresh, the humidity is controlled by TDM system.

WATER FILTER
The water “Filter Indicator” light
• “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. The light
will change from green to orange. This tells you that it is almost time to change the current cartridge.
It is recommended that you replace the cartridge when the light changes to red or every six months.
(see “Install the water filter” section for more information)
Using the dispenser without the water filter
• You cannot use the water and ice dispenser without a water filter cartridge.
Water Dispenser and Ice Maker will not function without
Water Filter installed.

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 1.4 ~ 8.5kgf/cm2 (0.14~0.83Mpa,
19.9~120.9psi, 1.37~8.3bar) 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 (1.4kgf/cm2, 0.14Mpa, 19.9psi,
1.37bar), 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.
NOTE
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.

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 until the water runs clear
(6~7 minutes). 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 fridge door and check if water leaks around the
water filter.
NOTE

ICE
• A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly spurt from the dispenser.
Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray.
1) To remove : Set the type of ice to the “Ice Off” position. Lift up
(①) and pull out (➁) the ice bucket in the freezer.
To replace : When replacing the drawer, be sure to press it firmly into place. If it does not go all the way back, remove it and
rotate the drive mechanism 1/4 turn. Then push the drawer back
again.
ICE BUCKET
2) Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the water line to
clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the icemaker will
stop producing ice.
It is normal for several cubes to be joined
together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will

INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
3) Important Facts About Your Dispenser :
Do not add ice from trays or bags to the storage bin. It may not crush or dispense well.
Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice can jam the
chute or cause the door in the chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute, poke it through with
a wooden spoon.
Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser opening.
Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you selected CUBES. This happens occasionally
when a few cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip from the chute.
4) Water Supply to the Icemaker :
The icemaker must be connected to a cold water line.
5) Start the Icemaker :
Set the type of ice to the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position. The icemaker will not begin to operate until it reachs its operating of -12°C or below. It will then begin operation automatically if the type
of ice is in the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position.
• If there is no water supply, turn off the icemaker to save energy.
• In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to make sure enough water
reaches the icemaker.
• Allow the appliance to stand for 2hours after installation.
Use only the ice maker provided with the refrigerator.
