Only)
••Fill the water dispenser tank.
••Open the water supply valve.
••Unfiltered water can contain a large
amount of various heavy metals or
foreign substances, so the filter may
be clogged in the early stage
regardless of the life of the filter.
Is the taste of water different
when comparing it with the
taste of water from the
previous water purifier?
••Has the purified water or cold water

••Open the water supply valve.
Are you using unfiltered
water?
Has it been a long time since
you installed and replaced the
filter?
Water tastes strange.
Solution
••In the control panel, select the
modes for cubed ice and crushed ice
alternately to dispense the ice.
••Ice may not be dispensed properly if
the ice passage is blocked. Check
the ice and clean the ice path
regularly.
••If an expired filter is used, the
purification performance may
decline. It is recommended to
replace the filter according to the
filter replacement period.
••When you install or replace the filter
for the first time, you need to remove
air and activated carbon residue
from inside the filter. Use the
appliance after dispensing and
discharging approximately 5 litres of
purified water from the dispenser by
pressing the water dispensing lever.
(Activated carbon is harmless to
humans.)
••The taste of old water may change
due to bacterial growth. Use the
product after dispensing and
discharging approximately 5 litres
(approximately three minutes) from
the water dispenser.
