Before
installation
ENGLISH
▪Automatic ice maker operation needs water pressure of 147~834kPa
(1.5~8.5kgf/cm2) (The pressure is correct when an instant paper cup (180cc) is
filled in 3 sec.).
▪If water pressure does not reach the rating 147kPa(1.5kgf/cm2) 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 8m and be careful that
the tube does not bend. If the tube is 8m or longer it may cause water feed
problems owing to the drain water pressure.▪Install the feed water pipe tube at
a place free from heat.
▪Connect to drinking water supply only.
▪Refer to instructions with water filter kit for installation.

smoothly
Ice is lumped together
When ice is lumped together, take the ice lumps out of the ice storage bin, break
them into small pieces, and place them back into the ice storage bin.
When the ice maker produces small or lumped together ice, the amount of water
supplied to the ice maker may need to be adjusted. Contact the service centre.
* If ice is not used frequently, it may lump together.
Power failure
Ice may melt and drop into the freezer compartment. Take the ice storage bin out
and discard all the ice then dry it and place it back. After the machine is powered
again, crushed ice will be automatically selected.
The unit is newly installed
It takes about 12 hours for a newly installed refrigerator to make ice in the freezer
compartment.
ENGLISH
When the ice dispenser will not operate properly
It is normal that the ice maker will not operate correctly when there is only a small
amount of ice left in the storage bin. Allow approximately one day for the ice maker
to restock.
If the ice forms into a solid lump and interrupts the operation of the automatic
ice maker mechanism, remove the ice storage bin, separate the ice, discard the
inseparable ice, and put the usable ice pieces back into the bin. The intermittent dispensing of ice is normal. However, since ice may get stuck and block the ice chute,
regularly check the ice chute and clear any obstacles.

Storing foods
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
• Please do not keep the door open for a long time, close door in the shortest
time.
• Storing too much food is not recommended. Sufficient space should be left
to ensure proper air circulation.
• Do not set the temperature of fridge freezer lower than needed. Do not put
food near the temperature sensors. Keep the distance of at least 5mm from
the sensors.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing. Placing hot food in the fridge freezer
could affect other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
• Do not block air vents. Smooth circulation of cold air maintains the
appropriate temperature.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the
fridge-freezer, and causes the temperature to rise.
• The configuration of shelves, baskets and drawers supplied by the
manufacturer is the most efficient in terms of energy saving.
ENGLISH
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.

Care and maintenance
General information
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 odour formation.
ENGLISH
Vacation time
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.
Power failure
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, like the floor, 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 and off.
•Rattling noises may come from the flow of refrigerant,the water line, or items stored on top
of the refrigerator.
•Your refrigerator is designed to run more efficiently to keep your food items at the desired
temperature. The high efficiency 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 refrigerant flowing in your
refrigerator.
Contraction cause a popping noise to and expansion of the inside walls may a popping
noise.
•Water dripping on the defrost heater during a defrost cycle may cause a sizzling sound.
•You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
•You may hear water running into the drain pan during the defrost cycle.
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
Use a luke warm 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 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.
Warning
.
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,
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 to
extremely cold surfaces.
