Feed water pipe installation
Before
installation
Automatic ice maker operation needs water pressure of 147~834 kPa (1.5~8.5
kgf/cm2) (That is, an instant paper cup (180 cc) will be fully filled within 3 sec.).
2
If water pressure does not reach the rating 147 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm ) or below, it is
necessary to purchase a separate pressure pump for normal automatic icing and
cool water feed.
Keep the total length of the feed water pipe tube within 8 m and be careful for the
tube not be bent. If the tube is 8 m or longer it may cause trouble in water feed
owing to the drain water pressure.
Install the feed water pipe tube at a place free from heat.
Warning
7
Connect to potable water supply only.
Refer to instructions with water filter kit for installation.
Installation
Height adjustment
If the freezer
compartment door
is lower than the
refrigerator
compartment door
Level the door by inserting flat ( - type) driver into the groove of the left height adjusting
screw and rotate it clockwise ().
If the freezer
compartment door
is higher than the
refrigerator
compartment door
Level the door by inserting flat ( - type) driver into the groove of the right height
adjusting screw and rotate it clockwise ().
After leveling the
door height
The refrigerator doors will close smoothly by heightening the front side by adjusting
the height adjusting screw. If the doors do not close correctly, performance may be
affected.
Next
1. Wipe off all dust accumulated during shipping and clean your appliance thoroughly.
2. Install accessories such as the ice cube box, cover evaporating tray, etc., in their

Cautions
Throw away the ice (about 20 pieces) and water (about 7 glasses) first made after
refrigerator installation.
The first ice and water may include particles or odor from the feed water pipe or feed
water box. This is necessary in case that the refrigerator has not been used for a long
time.
Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may push switch incorrectly bad or damage
lamps.
Be careful that food is not block the ice passage.
If foods are placed at the entrance of ice passage, ice
may not be dispensed. The ice passage may also be
covered with ice powder if splinter ice is used only. This
time, remove the ice powder accumulated.
Never store beverage cans or other foods in ice
storage bin for the purpose of rapid cooling.
Such actions may damage the automatic ice maker.
Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken.
Put ice first into a glass before filling water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added to existing liquid in a glass.
Never touch a hand or other tools on ice outlet.
Touch may cause a part breakage or hand injury.
Never remove the ice maker cover.
Sometimes level the surface so that the ice storage bin is fully filled with ice.
Ice is piled up just near the ice maker. So, such status may be considered, by the ice
maker, that the ice storage bin is fully filled and ice making operation may stop.
If discolored ice is dispensed, immediately contact service center, stopping use.
Never use too narrow or deep glass.
Ice may be jammed in ice passage and, thus, the refrigerator may be failed.
Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet.
13 A glass too close to the outlet may hinder ice from coming out.

Suggestion on food storage
Storing foods
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an
important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which goes bad easily at low temperatures, such as bananas, and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
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.
Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator,
and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may push against by inner racks
so that the door cannot be fully closed.
Freezer
compartment
Refrigerator
compartment
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrient.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer
shelf, not in the door rack.
Do not touch the cold foods or containers- especially made of metallic -, with wet
hands and place glass products in the freezer compartment.
- That’s why you may have chilblains and they may be broken when their inner matters
are frozen, causing personal injury.
Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from direct
contact with chilled air.
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and
wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always
store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.
NOTE
•
19
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent openning of the door
or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause dew to form which has no effect on its
performance. Remove the dew with dust cloth free from care.

Care and maintenance
General information
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 not to operate, remove all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor formation.
Power failure
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your
refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
If you move
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation.
Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which pumps hot
refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.

Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
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 is recommended. Wash all compartments a baking soda solution or a
mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, or
power plug is well inserted into the power consent.
Warning
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid from
getting into any electrical part and causing an electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline
solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
