SUGGESTIONS
Cover or wrap all foods that you put into your refrigerator with polythene or aluminium foil, preventing the mixing of
flavours and to keep the food from drying. Do not store liquids in bottles in the freezer compartment since there is
danger of their bursting.
Don’t keep hot milk or hot food in your refrigerator. This will result in an increased temperature of other food in the
fridge and may lead to deterioration.
Don’t open the refrigerator door too often-hot air will enter and increase the temperature.
Don’t keep the door open for more than 30 seconds at a time-cold air will rush out of the fridge.
Don’t cover the shelves with paper or plastic sheets. This prevents air circulation inside the cabinet.
Don’t use a knife or sharp instrument to remove the ice trays from the freezer or to remove the frost mechanically as it
may damage the freezer coil.
Fridge will automatically switched off when the proper temperature is attained. Don’t switch off the fridge at night, this
will create higher temperature inside the cabinet thus deteriorating stored foods.
Feel free to call your LG Dealer or LG Representative in case your refrigerator has suffered and damage in transit.
The Dealer or the Company Representative will assess the extent of damage and give you an estimate for repairs.
Don’t switch on the refrigerator, unless a minimum period of four minutes lapses after it was switched off, either due
to power failure or otherwise.
Don’t allow food stuffs smeared with salt to come in direct contact with the freezer. It is a good practice to always
keep the food in a container before placing in the freezer.
Do not use or store inflammable materials like ether, benzene,
alcohol, medicine, LP gas, spray or cosmetics near or in the
refrigerator. It may cause explosion or fire.
Do Not Modify or Extend the power cord length. It will cause electric Shock or fire.
LAMP REPLACEMENT (Optional)
1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove refrigerator shelves.
3. Remove the lamp by turning it counterclockwise
as shown in the figure at right.
4. Assemble in reverse order of disassembly.
Replacement bulb must be the same
specification as original.
USEFUL SUGGESTIONS
EXTERIOR -Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the refrigerator. Wipe with a clean, damp cloth
and then dry.
INTERIOR - Regular cleaning of the interior and interior parts is recommended. If you have to wash all compartments
with a mild baking soda solution, then rinse and dry the compartment.
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 to be away for an extended period remove all food,
disconnect the power cord, clean the interior throughly and leave each door OPEN to prevent odour formation.
POWER FAILURE - Most power failures are corrected in an hour or two and will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off. During power failures
of longer duration, place a block of dry ice on top of your frozen packages.
IF YOU MOVE - Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator. To avoid damaging the leveling
screws, turn them all the way into the base.

BEFORE CALLING FOR SERVICE
Check for yourself
Type of Complaint
Probable Cause
Remedy
1. Refrigerator does
not work.
–Thermostat switch
in 'OFF' position.
– Power Supply Off.
Check that the thermostat knob is on‘Normal' position and not in off position.
2. Refrigerator
attempts to start, but
does not operate.
3. Refrigerator contents
not cooling.
– Low Voltage.
Check that the refrigerator main supply plug is connected to the wall socket and
that the supply is on. Check that the fuse is intact in the supply line.
Install a line-correcting transformer in the mains, or a Voltage Stabilizer.
– Defrosting over due
Defrost the refrigerator.
– Restriction of cold
air circulation.
– Improper thermostat
control selection.
– Entry of hot air.
Provide space in between the dishes. If the shelves are covered with cloth or
polythene, remove it.
If the refrigerator is required to give a low temperature turn the thermostat knob
towards colder (Max) position.
Opening and closing of the door too often will result in hot air from outside rushing
into the refrigerator causing the temperature to go up. Reduce the frequency of
opening of the door
Avoid storing hot foods in the refrigerator, cool them to room temperature before
placing them inside the refrigerator.
– Storing hot foods.
4. Formation of water
drops on exterior
of refrigerator.
– High humidity during
monsoon season.
During the monsoon, when the humidity in the atmosphere reaches around 90%
water droplets may form around the sides of the refrigerator cabinet, especially the
top portion. This moisture should be wiped off periodically. Contact our serviceman
to check the door seal for proper and uniform contact with the cabinet.
5. Formation of droplets
on the underside of the
Chiller tray.
– Hot and humid
climate.
In hot and humid weather the moist air rushes inside whenever the refrigerator door
is opened. This results in excess frosting on the Evaporator, and condensation on
the Chiller tray bottom. Avoid too frequent door openings.
6. Smell and odour.
– Improper covering
and wrapping of food.
Wrap and cover foodstuffs properly. Place caps on bottles and other liquid stores.
If the smell persists, defrost the refrigerator, remove all foodstuffs, clean the
refrigerator thoroughly and wipe it dry before restarting.
7. Difficulty in formation
of ice and ice-cream.
– Incorrect thermostat
setting.
– Defrosting overdue.
Set the thermostat on 'Colder' (Max) position.
Excessive frost on the freezer compartment should be defrosted. Ensure that the
container of ice-cream or ice is in proper contact with the surface of the freezer. Do
not use bowls.
