How ice/cold water is supplied Water is cooled while stored in the water tank in the refrigerator compartment, and then sent to the dispenser. Ice is made in the automatic ice maker and is then sent to the dispenser as either crushed or cubed ice. NOTE • It is normal that at first the water is not very cold. If you want colder water, add ice to the glass. Throw away the first ice (about 20 pieces) and the first water (about 7 glasses) passing through the appliance when the refrigerator is initially installed. The first ice and water may include particles or odour from the feed water pipe or the feed water box. The should also be done if the refrigerator has not been used for a long time. Keep children away from the dispenser. Children may push the dispenser switch incorrectly, or damage the dispenser by breaking associated parts. It may also cause them injury. Always ensure that food does not block the ice chute. If foods are placed at the entrance of the ice chute, ice may not be dispensed. The ice chute may become covered with ice powder if crushed ice is most commonly used. Remove the accumulated ice powder. Never store beverage cans or other foods in the ice storage bin for rapid cooling. This may damage the automatic ice maker. Never use fine crystal glasses or crockery to collect ice. Such glasses or containers may be broken. Put ice into a glass before filling with water or other beverages. Water may be splashed if ice is added after the drink. Never touch the ice outlet either with hands or any implement. Touching the ice outlet may cause a breakage or hand injury. Never remove the ice maker cover. It might be necessary from time to time to level the ice so the storage bin can fill to capacity. If ice is allowed to pile up near the ice maker, the ice maker may think that it is already full and it will stop producing ice. If discolored ice is dispensed, stop using the appliance and contact your service centre immediately. Ice may be jammed in ice chute causing the refrigerator to fail. Never use narrow or deep glassware when using the icemaker as ice can back up into the ice chute and cause a malfunction. Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet. A glass too close to the outlet may hinder ice from coming out. 17 Operation Two stars section (Applicable to some models only) ▪ Two stars means the temperature in the section is -12°C~ -18°C. ▪ Freezer foods for short-term storage. Refreshment centre(Applicable to some models only) How to use Open the minibar door. ▪ You can access the minibar without opening the refrigerator door, thus saving electricity. ▪ Inner lamp is lit in the refrigerator compartment when the minibar door opens, making it easy to identify the contents.

The refrigerator uses an internal water tank located on the refrigerator door to supply water for these functions. To remove the water tank: Turn the locking dial to the “OPEN” position as shown in Fig.(1). Then hold and pull the cap of the water tank in the direction of the arrow in Fig.(2) to release the water tank. the water tank can now be lifted carefully out of the door basket for filling or cleaning. To fill the water tank Lift up the clamps on both sides to open the water tank cover, and then fill the tank. Pour water up to the marked line (4.5ℓ). When the tank is full, close the tank cover and lock the clamps on both sides. The water tank can also be filled from the removable fill cap located on the water tank lid. To refit the water tank: Place the filled water tank back into the door basket and align the pick up nozzle to the water pipe spigot as shown in Fig (3). Firmly push the tank so that the water pick up nozzle locates into the spigot. Fig (4). Then turn the locking dial to the “CLOSED” position. The pump motor will then automatically operate when this is done so that the water line is purged of any air. NOTE: If the tank is not inserted correctly, water will leak from the pick up nozzle onto the door basket. Always wait 15 seconds after dispensing water before attempting to remove the water bottle for filling or cleaning. NOTE When assembling or disassembling the water tank, be careful not to apply excessive force as it can damage the water tank. If there is no water in the water tank, you will not be able to use the Auto Ice Maker function and Water Dispenser function. Using other liquid besides water can cause problems to the pump. When the water in the water tank is low, the size of the ice cubes may become smaller. It’s a good idea to clean out the water initially before filling it with water and placing it into position. The method of using the Dispenser and Ice Maker is the same as other common Dispenser models. Because the water tank can get heavy,don’t let children use or hold the water tank, especially with one hand. As the ice maker uses water from the water tank, you may hear the water pump operating 8~10 times per day. 19 22 Operation 1 2 Egg box (Depends on model) NOTE • Never use the egg box as an ice storage bin. It can be broken. • Never store the egg box in the freezer compartment or fresh compartment. Deodorizer (Applicable to some models only) This system eﬃciently absorbs strong odours by using an optical catalyst. This system does not have any affect on stored food. Deodorizing system Vegetable compartment Vegetable compartment How to use the deodorizing system ▪ The deodorizer is located behind the vegetable compartment. It can be removed for cleaning with soapy warm water from time to time. ▪ Please use closed containers to store pungent food. Odours are easily absorbed by other food in the compartment. 20 Operation Freezer Compartment (Option not available for all models) If a large quantity of food is to be placed in the freezer compartment: The middle drawer of freezer compartment shall be taken out of the appliance and food shall be stacked directly on the wire shelf. Freezer compartment provides wire shelf on default to maximize food storage capacity. And also the drawer is provided to convenient usage for watery meat or half-liquid state food. Max Freezing capacity If there is already food in the compartment, button on “Express frz" several hours before placing fresh produce in the freezer compartment to get maximum capacity, As a rule, 4 hours is adequate. (Option not available for all models) 21 26 Suggestion on food storage Location of foods (Refer to identification of parts) Freezer compartment shelf Store various frozen foods such as meat, fish,ice cream, frozen snacks, etc.. Freezer compartment door rack ▪ Store small packed frozen food. ▪ Temperature is likely to increase as door opens. So, do not store long-term food such ice cream, etc.. Freezer compartment drawer ▪ Store meat, fish, chicken, etc.. after wrapping them with tin foil. ▪ Store dry. Milk product corner Store milk products such as butter, cheese,etc.. Egg box Place this egg box in the proper location. Refreshment center Store foods of frequent use such as beverage,etc.. Refrigerator compartment shelf Store side dishes or other foods at a proper distance. Refrigerator compartment door rack Store small packed food or beverages such as milk, juice, beer, etc.. S Vegetable drawer 28 22 Suggestiononfoodstorage Storing foods ▪ Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavour. ▪ 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 a refrigerator could spoil other food, and lead to higher energy consumption. ▪ When storing 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 causes temperatures to rise. ▪ Never keep too much food in the door rack as it may push against the inner racks so that the door cannot fully close. Freezer 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 nutrients. ▪ 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 cold foods or containers - especially metallic containers - with wet hands or place glass products in the freezer compartment. - You may get chill blains, and glass containers may break when frozen, causing personal injury. Refrigerator Compartment ▪ Avoid placing sauces on top refrigerator shelves, which could freeze on 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 • If you keeping the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequently open the door or store a lot of vegetables, dew may form. This has no effect on operation or performance. Remove the dew with an absorbent dry cloth. Suggestion for energy saving 23 24 back Care and maintenance General information Vacation time 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 odour formation. Power failure temperatures. However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the 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. Anti condensation pipe 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 through the refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall. Understanding sounds you may hear Your new refrigerator may make sounds that your old one didn’t make. Because the sounds are new to you, you might be concerned about them. Most of the new sounds are normal. Hard surfaces, l oor, walls and cabinets, can make the sounds seem louder than they describes the kinds of actually are. The following sounds and what may be making them: •The defrost timer will click when the automatic defrost cycle begins and ends. The thermostat control (or refrigerator control, depending on the model) will also click when cycling on an . •Do not move refrigerator while the refrigerator is operating. Compressor may occur a temporary rattling noise. (This is normal and will not impact on the performance or the life of the compressor. The rattling will stop after the refrigerator comes to a rest.) •Rattling noises may come fr ow of refrigerant,the water line, or items stored on top of the refrigerator. ntly to keep your food items at the desired •Your refrigerator is designed to run mor temperature. The h ciency compressor may cause your new refrigerator to run longer than your old one, and you may hear a pulsating or high-pitched sound. •You may hear the evaporator fan motor circulating the air through the refrigerator and freezer compartments. •As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due the refrigeran owing in your refrigerator.

Cleaning It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odours. Spilled food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if allowed to settle. Exterior refrigerator. Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry. Interior Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments with 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 wall outlet socket. Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning near to electrical equipment (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, Warning touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick to extremely cold surfaces. 26 Careandmaintenance Cleaning the water dispenser and the water tank.

Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center agent. The transmission sounds that you will hear are normal and sound similar to a fax machine. Smart Diagnosis cannot be activated unless your refrigerator is connected to power. If your refrigerator is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting must be done without using Smart Diagnosis. First, call to the LG service center. Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center agent. Using Smart Diagnosis 1. Lock the display. To lock the display, press and hold the Lock button for three seconds. (If the display has been locked for over five minutes, you must deactivate the lock and then reactivate it.) 2. Open the right refrigerator door. 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. 4. Press and hold the Freezer Temperature button for three seconds while continuing to hold your phone to the speaker. 5. After you hear three beeps, release the Freezer Temperature button. 6. Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished. This takes about 3 seconds, and the display will count down the time. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the specialist, who will then be able to assist you in using the information transmitted for analysis. NOTE 34 • For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted. • If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again. • Call quality differences by region may affect the function. • Use the home telephone for better communication performance, resulting in better service. • Bad call quality may result in poor data transmission from your phone to the machine, which could cause Smart Diagnosis to not work properly.
