SMART DIAGNOSIS(Option)
Smart Diagnosis
Should you experience any problems with
your refrigerator, it has the capability of
transmitting data via your telephone to the LG
service center. This gives you the capability of
speaking directly to our trained specialists. The
specialist records the data transmitted from
your machine and uses it to analyze the issue,
providing a fast and effective diagnosis.
3 Hold the mouthpiece of your phone in
front of the speaker that is located on the
right hinge of the refrigerator door, when
instructed to do so by the call center.
If you experience problems with your
