SEVERE WARNING
SIGNS FOR
TRANSPORTATION AND
SITE
•When transporting and
installing the appliance,
care should be taken to
ensure that no parts of
the refrigerating circuit are
damaged.
- Refrigerant leaking from the
pipe work could ignite or
cause an eye injury. If a leak
is detected, avoid any naked
flames or potential sources
of ignition and air the room
in which the appliance is
standing for several minutes.
•In order to avoid the creation
of a flammable gas-air mixture
if a leak in the refrigerating
circuit occurs, the size of the
room in which the appliance
may be sited depends on the
amount of refrigerant used.
•Never start up an appliance
showing any signs of damage.
If in doubt, consult your
dealer. The room where the
refrigerator will be sited must
be 1m³ in size for every 8g
of R600a refrigerant inside
the appliance. The amount of
refrigerant in your particular

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 refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent
openings.
- Allow clearance to the right,
left, back and top when
installing.
This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your
energy bills lower.

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 near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator so close to the wall that air cannot keep
circulating? (Refer to page 16 for the best location.)
The food in the
Refrigerator is frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display set to the correct
temperature?
Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room too low?
• Did you store the food too close to the air vent at the back of the
refrigerator? Move the food away from the air vent.
You hear unusual noise
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. It is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding
according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
• When the automatic ice maker is on, ice is made in the ice container.
After the ice is made, the container inverts and the ice falls into the
storage compartment and water flows through the water valve. These
operations cause noise at regular intervals, but that noise is normal.
The front corners and
horizontal hinged section
of the appliance are hot
and condensation is
occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the horizontal
hinged section 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 Maker is not
producing ice.
• 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 opened?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer
temperature lower.
You hear water bubbling
in the Refrigerator.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerator coolant liquid
circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
the Refrigerator.
• Check for spoiled food.
• Foods with strong odors (for example, fish) should be tightly covered.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or
suspicious 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 drawer closed properly?
