Child Entrapment Warning
An empty refrigerator can be a dangerous attraction to children. Remove
gaskets, latches, lids or the entire door from your unused appliance, or
take some other action to make it harmless.
About earthing
In the event of an electric short circuit, earthing reduces the risk of electric
shock by providing an escape wire for the electric current.
Improper use of the earthing plug can result in an electric shock. Consult
a qualified electrician or service person if the grounding instructions
are not completely understood, or if you have doubts on whether the
appliance is properly earthed.
In order to prevent possible electric shock, this appliance must be earthed.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the
appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
Unplug the appliance before cleaning or maintenance.
Never place glass products in the freezer because they may
break due to expansion when their contents are frozen.

It may cause short circuit.
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.
Operating Procedure
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.
Defrost regularly to avoid heavy frost building on the evaporator which
results in reduced cooling efficiency.
Push the defrost Knob after every
3 days / Ice Level reaches defrost
Ice Making
Fill ice trays with water, place in
freeze Box.
To remove ice cube, gently twist
Ice Tray.
Do not use sharp tool to remove ice tray, otherwise you may
puncture the evaporator resulting gas leakage thus non
performance of refrigerator
How to get good results
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.
Don't keep hot milk or hot food in your refrigerator.
This will result in an increased temperature and
increase in power consumption.
Don't open the refrigerator door too often-hot air will enter
and increase the temperature.
Never overload your refrigerator or cover the shelves
with paper or plastic sheets as it will reduce its efficiency.
Close the door properly, make sure that there is no
gap between the gasket and the cabinet of your LG
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.
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 (160-260V)**, Stabilizer
usage increases the refrigerator life.
** As per LGEIL Test Standards.
Before Calling for Service
Type of Complaint
1. Refrigerator does
not work.
Probable Cause
Thermostat switch
in ‘ OFF' position.
Power Supply Off.
Check that the thermostat knob is on 'Normal' (No.4) position
and not in off position.
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.
Stabilizer not working Please plug power cord of refrigerator directly in the wall
socket and then check, if it works then get the stabilizer
checked by Stabilizer Repairing Centre.
2. Refrigerator
attempts to start,
but does not operate.
Low Voltage.
Install a line-correcting transformer in the mains, or a
Voltage Stabilizer.
3. Refrigerator contents
not cooling and
Difficulty in formation
of ice and ice-cream.
Defrosting over due
Restriction of cold
air circulation.
Improper thermostat
control selection.
Storing hot foods.
Defrost the refrigerator.
Provide space in between the dishes. If the shelves are
covered with cloth or polythene, remove it.

room temperature before placing them inside the refrigerator.
4. Formation of water
drops on exterior
of refrigerator.
High humidity
during monsoon
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 or proper and uniform
contact with the cabinet.
5. Formation of droplets
on the underside of
the Chiller tray.
Hot and humid
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
Wrap and cover food stuffs properly. Place caps on bottles
and wrapping of food. and other liquid stores. If the smell persists, defrost the
refrigerator, remove all foodstuffs, clean the refrigerator
thoroughly and wipe it dry before restarting.
