bad odour molecule
Unpleasant odour of food in fresh food
compartment is deodorized with no harm to
you and the food.
How to use
As Deodorizer is located in cooling air path for circulating air in fresh food compartment, there is no need
for any handling.
Do not prick the cooling air inlet with a sharp tip because Deodorizer may be damaged.
When storing food with a strong odour, wrap it or store it in a container with a lid because odour may be
passed on to other foods.
Re-Using of Deodorizer
Keep distance as odour is strong,
Deodorizer can be revived and re-used.
Separate Deodorizer in ceiling of refrigerator
compartment, using hair drier to remove
moisture or odour and oxidize under sunlight
to decomposing odour by ultraviolet rays.
Don't try to remove the deodorizer cover, as you may break the catalyst.

LED Replacement
This product applies LED Lamp which can not be replaced by the user. Please contact authorized
service centre for the lamp replacement.
Suggestions on Food Storage
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.
11
Don't keep hot milk or hot food in your refrigerator. This will result
in an increased temperature and increase in power consumption.
Never overload your refrigerator or cover the shelves with paper or
plastic sheets as it will reduce its efficiency.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator,
and cause temperature to rise.
Close the door properly, make sure that there is no gap between the gasket and
the cabinet of your LG refrigerator.
Wipe excessive moisture on food or place it inside containers or plastic bags.
This will help in retaining its freshness for a longer period of time.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures. Such as bananas,
pineapples, etc.
Do not store glass bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Avoid placing moist food on deep interior refrigerator shelves. It could freeze
upon direct contact with chilled air. To avoid this it is better to store food in the
covered container.
12
It is desirable to store moist food (especially vegetable and fruit) in the vegetable storage compartment. If it
is necessary to store on a shelf of the refrigerator, put it close to the door
away from the back wall of the refrigerator to avoid being frozen by the
cool circulating in the refrigerator.
Freezer door basket marked
term storage of frozen food only
is two star compartment (temperature -12°C), which is suitable for short
When storing eggs in their storage tray, ensure that they are fresh, and
always store them in a upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.
Feel free to call your LG Customer Information Centre (CIC) / Branch / LG Representative in case your
refrigerator has suffered a damage in transit.
It is recommended to use Voltage Stabilizer (0.5kVA) if power fluctuations are frequent and out of
specified voltage range (100-290V)**, Stabilizer usage increases the refrigerator life.
Suggestions
Cleaning
When cleaning the inside or outside of the appliance, do not wipe it with a rough
brush, toothpaste, or flammable materials. Do not use cleaning agents containing
flammable substances.
This may cause discoloration or damage to the appliance.
Flammable substances: alcohol (ethanol, methanol, isopropyl alcohol, isobutyl
alcohol, etc.), thinner, bleach, benzene, flammable liquid, abrasive, etc.
During Vacations
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
thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odour formation. To operate again,
let the refrigerator run for 6-8 hrs. for stabilization.
Shifting
While shifting the refrigerator, four people should carry it for its safety. Fasten the
door with tape or lock to prevent opening of the refrigerator.
