Additional Tips for Proper Usage
• Allow the appliance to stand for 2 hours after installation.
• To get best performance of product,
- Do not place foods too closely in front of the vents at the rear of the appliance as it can
obstruct free air circulation in the freezer compartment.
- Wrap the food up properly or place it in airtight containers before put it into the fridge
freezer
- Do not put any newly introduced food for freezing near to already frozen food.
• There is no need to disconnect the refrigerator from the power supply if you will be away
for less than three weeks. But, remove all the food if you are going away for the three
weeks or more. Unplug the refrigerator and clean it, rinse and dry.
• The appliance might not operate consistently (possibility of defrosting of contents or
temperature becoming too warm in the frozen food compartment) when sited for an
extended period of time below the cold end of the range of temperatures for which the
refrigerating appliance is designed.
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperature, such as bananas, melons.
• Place the ice tray at the originally provided posistion by manufacturer in order to achieve
optimal ice-freezing.
• Your appliance is frost free, which means there is no need to manually defrost your
appliance, as this will be carried out automatically.
• Temperature rising during the defrost can comply with ISO requirement. But If you want to
prevent an undue rise in the temperature of the frozen food while defrosting the appliance,
please wrap the frozen food in several layers of paper such as newspaper.
• Any increase in temperature of frozen food during defrosting can shorten its storage life.
• Contains fluorinated greenhouse gases covered by the Kyoto Protocol.
• Foam blown with fluorinated greenhouse gases.
Foam blown additive: Perfluorohexane
Global Warming Potential (GWP) = 9000
Saving Energy Tips
• 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 (radiator, for example).
• Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance.
• 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 appliance open for too long when putting food in or taking
food out.
The shorter time for which the door is open, the less ice will form in the freezer.
• Clean the rear of the refrigerator regularly. Dust increases energy consumption.
• Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
• Ensure sufficient air exhaust at the refrigerator base and at the back wall of the

CHECKING THE WATER DISPENSER LINE
A water dispenser is just one of the helpful features on your new Samsung refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the Samsung water filter removes unwanted particles from your water. However, it does not
sterilize or destroy microorganisms. You will need to purchase a water purifying system to do that.
In order for the icemaker to operate properly, water pressure of 138 ~862 kPa is required. Under normal
conditions, a 170 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 138 kPa), you can install a booster
pump to compensate for the low pressure.
Make sure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled. To do this, press the water
dispenser lever until the water runs from the water outlet.
Water Line installation Kits are included with unit. You can find it in freezer(or fridge) drawer.

Changing the WATER FILTER
WARNING
To reduce risk of water damage to your property DO NOT use generic brands of water filters in
your SAMSUNG Refrigerator. USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND WATER FILTERS.
SAMSUNG will not be legally responsible for any damage, including, but not limited to property
damage caused by water leakage from use of a generic water filter.
SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filter.
The “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To
give you preparation time to get a new filter, the red light will come on just before the capacity
of the current filter runs out. Changing the filter on time provides you with the freshest, cleanest
water from your fridge.
1. Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator sticker on the filter as
shown.
P
lace a sticker on the filter that dates six months in the future. For example, if you are
replacing the water filter in March, put the “SEP” (September) sticker on the filter to
remind you to replace in September. Normal filter life is about every 6 months.
2. Remove the new filter’s protective cap and remove the old filter.
3. Position and insert the new filter into the filter housing.
Slowly turn the water filter clockwise to align with the printing mark on the cover, locking
the filter in position. Make sure to align the water filter label mark with the center of cover

SOLUTION
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 setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping
air from circulating?
The food in the fridge is
frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room very low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest part of
the fridge? Try moving those items into the body of the fridge instead of
keeping them in the CoolSelect Zone™ drawer.
You hear unusual noises
or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping
air from circulating?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. This is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding in
relation to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
The front corners of
the appliance are hot
and condensation is
occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the front
corners of the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave
the door open for a long time.
Ice is not dispensing.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before
making ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function? Make sure Ice Type is
set to Cubed or Crushed.
• Is there any ice blocked within the ice maker bucket?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature
lower.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
03 troubleshooting
PROBLEM
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant liquid
circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
the refrigerator.
• Has a food item spoiled?
• Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so
that it is airtight.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or
suspect food.
Frost forms on the walls
of the freezer.
• Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate
freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the foods stored for efficient air
circulation.
• Is the freezer door closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Has the water supply line tubing been crushed or kinked?
Make sure the tubing is free and clear of any obstruction.
• Is the water tank frozen because the refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
