You can use the Automatic ice maker and Water Dispenser function
without having to connect an external water pipe to the refrigerator.
The refrigerator uses an internal water tank located on the
refrigerator door to supply water for these functions.
To remove the water tank:
Turn the locking dial to the “OPEN” position as shown in
Fig.(1). Then hold and pull the cap of the water tank in the
direction of the arrow in Fig.(2) to release the water tank.
The water tank can now be lifted carefully out of the door
basket for filling or cleaning.
To fill the water tank:
Lift up the clamps on both sides to open the water
tank cover, and then fill the tank. Pour water up to the
marked line (4.2ℓ). When the tank is full, close the tank
cover and lock the clamps on both sides.
The water tank can also be filled from the removable fill
cap located on the water tank lid.
To refit the water tank:
Place the filled water tank back into the door basket and align
the pick up nozzle to the water pipe spigot as shown in Fig (3).
Firmly push the tank so that the water pick up nozzle locates into
the spigot. Fig (4). Then turn the locking dial to the “CLOSED” position.
The pump motor will then automatically operate when this is
done so that the water line is purged of any air.
NOTE: If the tank is not inserted correctly, water will leak
from the pick up nozzle onto the door basket.
Always wait 15 seconds after dispensing water before
attempting to remove the water bottle for filling or cleaning.
When assembling or disassembling the water tank, be careful not to apply
excessive force as it can damage the water tank.
If there is no water in the water tank, you will not be able to use the Auto Ice
Maker function and Water Dispenser function.
Using other liquid besides water can cause problems to the pump.
When the water in the water tank is low, the size of the ice cubes may
become smaller.
It’s a good idea to clean out the water initially before filling it with water
and placing it into position.
The method of using the Dispenser and Ice Maker is the same as other common
Dispenser models.
Because the water tank can get heavy,don’t let children use or hold the water
tank, especially with one hand.
As the ice maker uses water from the water tank, you may hear the water pump
operating 8~10 times per day.
