Important Safety Instruction
Keep ventilation openings, in the appliance enclosure or in the built-in
structure, clear of obstruction.
Do not use mechanical devices or other means to accelerate the defrosting
process, other than those recommended by the manufacturer.
Do not damage the sealed system or any piping in or within the refrigerator.
Do not use electrical appliances inside the food storage compartments of the
appliance, unless they are of the type recommended by the manufacturer.
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.

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.

Suggestions on food storage
Suggestion for energy saving
Storing Food
w CAUTION
• Do not store food which spoils easily at low
temperature, such as banana, and melon.
• Please do not keep the door open for a long
period of time.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing
hot food in the refrigerator could spoil other
food, and lead to higher electricity bills.
• Do not over load the shelves and drawers with
food as this will compromise the air flow and
cause the refrigerator to run for longer periods.
• 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 set the temperature of refrigerator
lower than needed. Do not put the food near the
temperature sensor. Keep a distance of at least
5cm from the sensors.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing
hot food in the refrigerator could spoil other
food, and lead to higher electricity bills.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth
circulation of cold air keeps refrigerator
temperature even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the
door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and
cause temperature to rise.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth
circulation of cold air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
• Never keep too many foods in the door baskets,
as this may stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the
door lets warm air enter the refrigerator, and
cause internal temperatures to rise.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer compartmentthey may break when frozen and cause injury.
• Arrange food items so that frequently used
items are placed toward the front of the shelves
or drawers.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This
causes loss of taste and nutrition.
• Do not store pharmaceutical products, scientific
materials or other temperature sensitive products
in the refrigerator.
Products that require strict temperature controls
must not be stored in the refrigerator.
• If you want to quick freeze new food, place it in
the middle drawer of freezer compartment, and
then press the Express Freezing button.

Care and maintenance
It is normal...
The following occurrences are normal.
Occurrence
Noise
Solution
When you hear "Tak" or
"Took" sound
This is the sound of various parts expanding/contracting
or various control devices operating depending on the
temperature change within the refrigerator.
When you hear
"Deureureuk~", "Dulkuk" or
"Woong" sound
This is the compressor or fan operating when the
operation of the refrigerator is starting or ending. This is
the same phenomenon of the sound generated when
starting or turning off the engine of a car.
When you hear "Kureureuk"
sound of water flowing
This is the sound of refrigerant changing the condition in
the freezer/refrigerator. When the liquid changes to gas,
you will hear the sound of water flowing and when gas
changes to liquid, you will hear the "Kureureuk" sound.
When you hear the sound of
wind such as "Shoo~" or
"Shik" right after you close
the door
This is the sound generated when the internal pressure is
temporarily lowered when the warm air entered through
the refrigerator or freezer is rapidly cooled.
When you hear a
vibrating sound
If the refrigerator is installed on wooden floor or wooden
wall, or if the refrigerator is not leveled properly, the
sound can be loud from the vibration.
When you hear a loud
sound after installing the
product for the first time
When you operate the refrigerator for the first time, the
refrigerator will operate at high speed to cool fast and the
sound can seem louder. When the internal temperature
falls below a certain level, the noise will subside.
Door open
When the door is slightly
opened after closing the
door
Depending on the force or speed of closing the refrigerator
or freezer door, the door can open slightly and then
close again.
Be careful not to close the door too hard.
Icing/
Dew drops
When there is icing or
dew drops formed on the
inner or outer side of the
refrigerator
When warm external air flows into the cool inner surface
of the refrigerator, icing/dew drops can be formed.
Especially, this will happen more easily when you open
and close the refrigerator door more frequently.
Also if the humidity of the installed location is high or
during the rainy season or on a rainy day, condensation can
form on the outer side of the refrigerator. This is a
natural phenomenon that occurs during the humid
weather. Wipe the condensation with a dry cloth.
When the front side of the
refrigerator is warm
Heat pipes are installed around the front part of the
refrigerator and on the divider of the freezer and refrigerator
to prevent condensation from forming. The refrigerator
may feel warmer after the installation or during
summer, this is not a malfunction and is a normal occurance.
