Defrosting
It is natural for moisture in the air to condense on the cold surface. This leads to a
regular build up of frost on the surface of the freezer and the cooling in the fresh
food compartment. This frost accumulation reduces the cooling effect, thereby
reducing efficiency. Therefore, periodic defrosting is necessary to ensure
optimum performance.
Max

Off
The water in the drain tray evaporates by natural evaporation if defrosting is
done once in two days. However, due to varied conditions of usage it is
desirable to check the drain-tray occasionally and dispose of the water, if any,
Please ensure that the chiller tray is in its correct position by pushing it to its
correct position by pushing it to its extreme. Otherwise the defrosting water
may fall over the contents of the refrigerator.
Manual Defrosting : However in some models, in case of defrosting or power
failure the water directly accumulates in chiller tray, dispose off water directly
from chiller tray by taking it out.

SUGGESTIONS
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.
l
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.
l
Don’t open the refrigerator door too often-hot air will enter and increase the temperature.
l
Don’t
keep the door open for more than 30 seconds at a time-cold air will rush out of the fridge.
l
Don’t
cover the shelves with paper or plastic sheets. This prevents air circulation inside the cabinet.
l
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.
l
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.
l
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.
l
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.
l
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.
l
Do not keep very hot objects on the table top since the plastic material may get damaged.
l
Do Not Modify or Extend the power cord length * It will cause electric Shock or fire.

USEFUL SUGGESTIONS
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 of the interior and interior parts is recommended. If you have the 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' (No.4) position and not in off position.
2. Refrigerator
attempts to start, but
does not operate.
3. Refrigerator contents
not cooling.
– Low Voltage.
– 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 (No.7) 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.
During the mansoon, 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.
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.
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.
Set the thermostat on 'Colder' (No.7) position.
