Notes for Operation
Storing Foods Effectively
••Do not use the ice water dispenser tank for
beverages other than drinking water.
••Users should keep in mind that frost can form
If the door is not closed completely, if the
humidity is high during the summer, or if the
freezer door is opened frequently.
••Ensure there is sufficient space between food
stored on the shelf or door basket to allow the
door to close completely.
••Opening the door lets warm air enter the
appliance, and may cause the internal
temperature to rise.
••Do not open or close the appliance door
excessively.
••The LED lamp is only intended for use in
domestic appliances and is not suitable for
household room illumination.
••Store frozen food or refrigerated food inside
sealed containers.
••Check the expiration date and label (storage
instructions) before storing food in the
appliance.
••Do not store food for a long period of time
(more than four weeks) if it spoils easily at a
low temperature.
••Place the refrigerated food or frozen food
in each fridge or freezer compartment
immediately after purchasing.
••Avoid refreezing any food which has been
completely thawed. Freezing any food which
has been completely thawed again will lower
its taste and nutrition.
••Do not wrap and store vegetables with
newspaper. Printing material of newspaper
or other foreign substances may smear and
contaminate food.
••Do not overfill the appliance. Fill less than
70 % of the space. Cold air can not circulate
properly if the appliance is overfilled.
••Cool hot food before storing. If too much hot
food is placed inside, the internal temperature
of the appliance can increase and negatively
affect other foods stored in the appliance.
••If you set an excessively low temperature
for food, it may become frozen. Do not
set a temperature lower than the required
temperature for the food to be stored correctly.
••Always keep the appliance clean.
Suggestion for Energy Saving
••Ensure there is sufficient space between stored
foods. This allows cold air to be circulated
evenly and lowers electricity bills.
••Store hot food only after it has cooled in order
to prevent dew or frost.
••When storing food in the freezer compartment,
set the freezer temperature lower than the
temperature indicated on the appliance.
••Do not set the temperature of the appliance
lower than needed. For ice making in normal
climates, the freezer temperatures should be
set to -18 or colder.
••Do not put food near the temperature sensor of
the fridge compartment. Keep a distance of at
least 3 cm from the sensor.
••Please note that a temperature rise after
defrosting has a permissible range in the
appliance specifications. If you wish to
minimise the impact this may have on the food
storage due to a temperature rise, seal or wrap
the stored food in several layers.
Max Freezing Capacity
••The Express Freeze function will allow the
freezer to its maximum freezing capacity. This
generally takes up to seven hours, however, it
will automatically turn off after a given time and
can also be turned off manually at any given
time.
••To get better air circulation, insert all inner
parts like baskets, drawers, and shelves.

frost if only crushed ice is used. Remove the
frost that accumulates by removing the ice
bin and clearing the passage with a rubber
spatula. Dispensing cubed ice periodically can
also help prevent frost buildup.
••If discolored ice is dispensed, check the water
tank and the water supply for a possible
source. If the problem continues, contact the
LG Electronics customer information centre.
Do not use the ice or water until the problem is
corrected.
••Dispense ice into a glass before filling it with

••Do not touch the ice outlet or the automatic
icemaker with your hand or a tool. Otherwise,
appliance damage or injury may occur.
••When refitting the ice bin, ensure that it is
placed correctly. If it is tilted or unlevel, it
may not continue to make ice due to sensor
disruption.
••Never use a glass that is exceptionally narrow
or deep. Ice may jam in the ice passage,
affecting the performance of the appliance.
••Keep the glass at a proper distance from the
ice outlet. A glass held too close to the outlet
