dispensed as cubed or crushed ice as selected.
How ice/cold
water is supplied
NOTE
•
It is normal that the water is not very cold at first. If you want colder water,
add ice into the glass.
Throw away the ice (about 20 pieces) and water (about 7 glasses) first
made after refrigerator installation.
The first ice and water may include particles or odor from the feed water pipe
or feed water box. This is necessary in case that the refrigerator has not been
used for a long time.
CAUTION
Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may play with dispenser and damage switch or lamps.
Be careful that stored items do not fall into and block the ice chute.
Poorly packed items may fall into dispenser and block ice chute an prevent ice
dispensing. The ice chute may also become encrusted with ice flakes if
crushed ice is selected often, this may lead to the ice chute not opening
correctly. If this occurs remove the accumulated ice flakes.
Never store beverage cans or other foods in ice storage bin for the
purpose of rapid cooling.
Such actions may damage the automatic ice maker.
Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken.
Put ice first into a glass before filling water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added to existing liquid in a glass.
Never place hands or tools near Ice outlet.
Touching or adjusting the ice chute can result in injury or product damage.
Never remove the ice maker cover.
Sometimes level the surface so that the ice storage bin is fully filled with
ice.
The ice is dispensed into the same portion of the ice bin all the time, this may
result in the ice "piling up" and resulting in the bin being detected as full when
it is not completely full. Occasionally if ice is not used often, shift the ice
about to level it out allowing the ice maker to continue to make ice and fill bin
fully.
If discolored ice is dispensed, immediately contact service center,
stopping use.
Never use too narrow or deep glass.
Ice may be jammed in ice chute and, thus, the refrigerator may fail.
Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet.
A glass too close to the outlet may hinder ice from coming out.

Suggestion on food storage
Storing foods
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed
is an important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as bananas,
and melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could
spoil other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in 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 chilled air keeps
refrigerator temperatures even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the
refrigerator, and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may push against by inner
racks so that the door cannot be fully closed.
Freezer
compartment
Refrigerator
compartment
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and
nutrient.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer
shelf, not in the door rack.
Do not touch the cold foods or containers- especially made of metallic -, with wet
hands or place liquid filled glass products in the freezer compartment.
- You may receive frost bite. Glass containers may break when the internal liquids
freeze causing personal injury.
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed
and wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from
spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and
always store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.
NOTE
•
31
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent openning of the door
or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause dew to form which has no effect on its
performance. Remove the dew with a lint free cloth.
Care and maintenance
General information
Vacation time
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator
in operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor formation.
Power failure
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your
refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
If you move
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
Anti
condensation
pipe
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation.
Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which pumps hot
refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.
CAUTION
•
•
You must check the O-RING, which is made by rubber and prevent electric spark.
Don’t touch the lamp, it can get very hot if left on for a long length of time.
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Exterior
Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator.
Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Interior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments in a baking soda solution
or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the power consent.
WARNING
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid from
getting into any electrical part and causing an electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline
solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.

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 count of 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/fridge. 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 fridge or freezer is cooled fast.
When you hear the
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 fore or speed of closing the fridge or
freezer door, the door can open slightly and then get
closed.
Be careful not to close the door to hard.
Icing/
Dew drops
When there is icing or
dew drops formed on the
inner or outer side of the
refrigerator
When 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, dew drops can
form on the outer side of the refrigerator. This is a
natural phenomenon that occurs during the humid
weather. Wipe the water drops 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 fridge to
prevent the dew drops from forming. The refrigerator
may feel warmer after the installation or during the hot
summer, but this is not a problem and you can be rest
assured.
