yy When dispensing ice from the dispenser, do not use crystal ceramics.
yy Do not touch the cold surfaces in the freezer compartment with wet or damp hands, when your fridge is
in operation.
yy Do not put glass containers, glass bottles or beverage cans in the freezer.
yy Do not store explosive substances such as aerosol cans with a flammable propellant in this appliance.
yy This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
yy Do not refreeze frozen foods that have thawed completely. It may result in serious health issues.
yy If you are throwing away your old fridge, make sure the CFC coolant is removed for proper disposal by
a qualified servicer. If you release CFC coolant, you may be fined or imprisoned in accordance with the
relevant environmental law.
yy Disposed or abandoned fridges are dangerous, even if they are sitting for only a few days. When
disposing the fridge, remove the packing materials from the door or take off the doors but leave the
shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
yy If the refrigerant gas has leaked, do not touch the fridge or the power outlet and ventilate the room
immediately. A spark could trigger an explosion causing a fire or burns. Because this fridge uses
natural gas (isobutene, R600a) as the environment-friendly refrigerant, even a small amount (50~60g) is
combustible. If gas leaks from severe damage during delivering, installing or using the fridge, any spark
may cause fire or burns.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THE APPLIANCE.
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury when using your product, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the following.
CAUTION
Installation
yy The fridge must be properly installed in accordance with the Installer Instructions that were taped to
the front of the fridge.
yy Be careful when you unpack and install the fridge. Immediately dispose of packing materials (plastic)
out of reach of children.
Use
yy Close the doors carefully when children are around.
yy Keep fingers out of pinch point areas; clearances between the doors and cabinets are necessarily
small. Be careful closing doors when children are in the area.
yy If food is stacked or stored poorly on the shelves, it may fall and cause injury when the door is opened.
yy Do not move fridge while the fridge is operating. A Compressor rattling noise may occur as a result
and will only stop when the compressor cycles off, or when the power to the unit is turned off and
back on again. (This is normal and will not impact on the performance or the life of the compressor.
The rattling will stop after the compressor comes to a rest.)
Maintenance
yy Do not use strong detergents like wax or thinners for cleaning. Clean with a soft fabric.
yy Wipe foreign objects (dust, water, etc) off the prongs of the power plug and contact areas before
connecting.
WARNING
yy Use drinkable water for ice making.
WARNING
yy Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the built-in structure, clear of obstruction.
yy Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting process, other than those
recommended by the manufacturer.
yy Do not damage the refrigerant circuit.
yy Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the appliance, unless they
are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.
yy The refrigerant and insulation blowing gas used in the appliance require special disposal procedures.
When disposal, please consult with service agent or a similarly qualified person.
This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane refrigerant (R600a), natural gas with high
environmental compatibility, but it is also combustible. When transporting and installing the
appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
Refrigerant squirting out of the pipes 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. The room must be 1m2 in size for every 8g of R600a refrigerant inside the
appliance. The amount of refrigerant in your particular appliance is shown on the identification
plate inside the appliance. Never start up an appliance showing any signs of damage. If in doubt,
consult your dealer.

can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with
your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol,
flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove
tape or glue. These products can damage the
surface of your fridge.
Fridge shelves are installed in the shipping
position. Please reinstall shelves according to
your individual storage needs.
Choosing the Proper Location
yy The fridge should always be plugged
into its own individual properly grounded
electrical outlet rated for 240 Volts, 50 Hz,
AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance and
also prevents overloading house wiring
circuits which could cause a fire hazard from
overheated wires. It is recommended that a
separate circuit serving only this appliance
be provided.
Warning
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not
install the fridge in a wet or damp area.
do not install in any outdoor or sheltered
outdoor location or direct sunlight.
Flooring
To avoid noise and vibration, the unit must be

HOW TO USE
Food Storage Tips
* The following tips may not be applicable
depending on the model.
Wrap or store food in the fridge in airtight and
moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted.
This prevents food odor and taste transfer
throughout the fridge. For dated products, check
use by dates to ensure freshness.
Food
How to
Butter or
Margarine
Keep opened butter in a covered
dish or closed compartment.
When storing an extra supply,
wrap in freezer packaging and
freeze.
Cheese
Store in the original wrapping
until you are ready to use it.
Once opened, rewrap tightly in
plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Milk
Wipe milk cartons. For best
storage, place milk on interior
shelf, not on door shelf.
Eggs
Store in original carton on
interior shelf, not on door shelf.
Fruit
Do not wash or prepare fruit
until it is ready to be used. Sort
and keep fruit in its original
container, in a crisper, or store
in a completely closed paper
bag on a fridge shelf.
Leafy
Vegetables
Remove store wrapping and
trim or tear off bruised and
discolored areas. Wash in cold
water and drain. Place in plastic
bag or plastic container and
store in crisper.
Vegetables
with skins
(carrots,
peppers)
Place in plastic bags or plastic
container and store in crisper.
Fish
Store fresh fish and shellfish
in the freezer section if they
are not being consumed the
same day of purchase. It is
recommended to consume
fresh fish and shellfish the
same day purchased.
Leftovers
Cover leftovers with plastic
wrap, aluminum foil, or plastic
containers with tight lids.
Storing Frozen Food
Note
Check a freezer food guide or a reliable
cookbook for further information about preparing
food for freezing or food storage times.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large
quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen
food into the freezer than will freeze within 24
hours (no more than 1 to 1.5kg. of food per
cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough
space in the freezer for air to circulate around
packages. Be careful to leave enough room at
the front so the door can close tightly.
Storage times will vary according to the quality
and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap
used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and
the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside a
sealed package are normal. This simply means
that moisture in the food and air inside the
package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
Note
Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature
for 30 minutes, then package and freeze.
Cooling hot foods before freezing saves
energy.
Note
Never freeze beverage cans or bottles of any
kind as they can explode or shatter.
HOW TO USE
19
Storing Frozen Food (continued)
Adjusting the Fridge Shelves
Packaging
The shelves in your fridge are adjustable to
meet your individual storage needs. Your
model may have either glass or wire shelves.
Successful freezing depends on correct
packaging. When you close and seal the
package, it must not allow air or moisture in or
out. If it does, you could have food odor and
taste transfer throughout the fridge and could
also dry out frozen food.
Adjusting the shelves to fit different heights
of items will make finding the exact item you
want easier. Doing so will also reduce the
amount of time the fridge door is open which
will save energy.
Packaging recommendations:
yy Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting
lids
Detaching the Shelf
yy Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
Tilt up the front of the shelf and lift it straight
up. Pull the shelf out.
yy Heavy-duty aluminum foil
yy Plastic-coated paper
yy Non-permeable plastic wraps
yy Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic
bags
Follow package or container instructions for
proper freezing methods.
Do not use
yy Bread wrappers
yy Non-polyethylene plastic containers
yy Containers without tight lids
yy Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap
yy Thin, semi-permeable wrap
Refitting the Shelf
Tilt the front of the shelf up and guide the
shelf hooks into the slots at the desired height.
Then, lower the front of the shelf so that the
hooks drop into the slots.
Caution
Make sure that shelves are level from
one side to the other. Failure to do so
may result in the shelf falling or spilling
food.
20 HOW TO USE
Using the Folding Shelf
When Closing the Door
You can store taller items, such as containers
or bottles, by simply pushing the front half of
the shelf underneath the back half of the shelf.
Pull the front of the shelf firmly toward you to
return to a full shelf.

SMART DIAGNOSIS
31
SMART DIAGNOSIS
Should you experience any problems with
your fridge, 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.
If you experience problems with your fridge,
call to the LG service 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.
3 Hold the mouthpiece of your phone in front
of the speaker that is located on the right
hinge of the fridge door, when instructed
to do so by the call center.
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 fridge is connected to power. If your
fridge is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting
must be done without using Smart Diagnosis.

information transmitted for analysis.
NOTE
yy For best results, do not move the phone
while the tones are being transmitted.
yy If the call center agent is not able to get
an accurate recording of the data, you
may be asked to try again.
2 Open the right fridge door.
NOTE
yy Call quality differences by region may
affect the function.
yy Use the home telephone for better
communication performance, resulting in
better service.
yy Bad call quality either from a mobile or
home phone may result in poor data
transmission from your phone to the
