FOODSTUFF STORAGE
Storing Food
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot food in the f
ridge-freezer could spoil other food, and lead to higher electric bills.
Storing Food
• When storing the food, use a container with a lid. This prevents
moisture from evaporating, and helps food to keep its taste and
nutrients.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of
cold air keeps fridge-freezer temperature even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air
enter the fridge-freezer, and cause temperature to rise.
• To adjust the temperature control easily, do not store
food near the temperature control dial.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack, as this may
stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not store bottles or cans in the freezer compartment
- they may break when frozen.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
• If it is necessary to quickly freeze fresh food items, place
them to the lower drawer of the freezing compartment
and push the "EXPRESS FREEZE" button;
• Frozen food items should be stored packed (in polyethylene
film, aluminum foil, etc.) in the freezing compartment;
Note
If you keep the fridge-freezer in a hot, and humid place,
frequently open its door or put a lot of vegetables in it, dew
or frost may form in it, which has no effect on its performance.
Remove the dew and frost a dust free cloth.

SMART DIAGNOSIS(Option)
SMART DIAGNOSIS
Should you experience any problems with
your refrigerator, it has the capability of
transmitting data via your telephone to the LG
service center. This gives you the capability of
speaking directly to our trained specialists. The
specialist records the data transmitted from
your machine and uses it to analyze the issue,
providing a fast and effective diagnosis.
3 Hold the mouthpiece of your phone in
front of the speaker that is located on the
right hinge of the refrigerator door, when
instructed to do so by the call center.
If you experience problems with your
refrigerator, call the phone No. of LG
Customer Information Center. Only use
the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed
to do so by the LG call center agent. The
transmission sounds that you will hear are
normal and sound similar to a fax machine.
4 Press and hold the Freezer Temperature
button for three seconds while continuing
to hold your phone to the speaker.
Smart Diagnosis cannot be activated unless
your refrigerator is connected to power. If
your refrigerator is unable to turn on, then
troubleshooting must be done without using
Smart Diagnosis.
5 After you hear three beeps, release the
Freezer Temperature button.
Using Smart Diagnosis
6 Keep the phone in place until the tone
transmission has finished. This takes about
15 seconds, and the display will count
down the time. Once the countdown is
over and the tones have stopped, resume
your conversation with the specialist, who
will then be able to assist you in using the
information transmitted for analysis.
First, call the phone No. of LG Customer
Information Center. Only use the Smart
Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so
by the LG call center agent.
