CARE AND MAINTENANCE
FOODSTUFF STORAGE
CLEANING
• Do not store food which goes bad easily at
low temperature, such as banana, and melon.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing.
Placing hot food in the fridge-freezer could
spoil other food, and lead to higher electric
bills.
1. Before cleaning, make sure that power
supply is switched off;
• When storing the food, use a container
with a lid. This prevents moisture from
evaporating, and helps food to keep its
taste and nutrients.
3. After cleaning, make sure that the power
cord is not damaged.
Then tightly insert the plug to the power
outlet.
2. Outside and inside, the refrigerator should
be washed with a clean napkin wetted in
warm water with a liquid detergent.
Then wipe dry with a dry napkin;
• Do not block air vents with food.
Smooth circulation of cold air keeps
fridge-freezer temperature even.
CAUTION!
1. It is prohibited to use abrasive materials,
gasoline, benzene, solvents, hydrochloride,
hot water, hard brushes, etc., which may
damage the refrigerator surface.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening
the door lets warm air enter the fridge-freezer,
and cause temperature to rise.
2. For products with a stainless steel exterior,
use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a
mildDetergent in warm water.
Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
Dry thoroughly with a Soft cloth.
Do not use appliance wax, bleach, or other
products containing chlorine on stainless
steel.
• To adjust the temperature control easily,
do not store food near the temperature
control dial.
• Never keep too many foods in door rack,
as this may stop the door from fully closing.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer
compartment - they may break when frozen.
VITAMIN PLUS (OPTIONAL)
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed.
This causes loss of taste and nutrition.
It contains anti-oxydant that is able to avoid
oxidation process in order to make the fruits
and vegetables fresh for longer time.
• If it is necessary to quickly freeze fresh
foodstuffs, place them to the lower drawer
of the freezing compartment and push
the "QUICK FREEZE" button;
This part contains anti-oxydant substance that
should not be eaten.Opening and closing the
door too much often can reduce its lifetime.
• Frozen foodstuffs should be stored packed
(in polyethylene film, aluminum foil, etc.) in
the freezing compartment;
• Volume of the upper drawer in the freezing
compartment is the "two stars" section.
Temperature inside this section does not
rise above -12°C. This should be taken into
account for storage of foodstuffs.
17
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
GENERAL
CAUTION!
Electric power failure.
• An interruption in electric power supply for
1-2 hours will not harm the stored foodstuffs.
Try to less frequently open and close the
refrigerator door during this period.

The refrigerant circulating inside the
refrigeration system may calmly gurgle,
even if the compressor is idle.
Do not worry, this is absolutely normal.
The following sounds may be heard during
operation of the refrigerator:
- Clicks from actuation of the temperature
sensor/switch;
- Murmur of the refrigerant circulating in tubes
of the refrigeration system;
- Slight cracking noise from thermal
deformations of materials.
These sounds are not associated with any
defect and they have a functional aspect.
• To avoid damage of the floor and adjustable
feet of the refrigerator, turn them
counter-clockwise before transportation;
• The refrigerator should be firmly secured in
the truck to prevent its hits and falling
inside the truck during transportation;
• The refrigerator should be transported in
vertical position in a covered vehicle.
The original package should not be
damaged during transportation;
• During loading and unloading, the
refrigerator should be protected against hits.
BEFORE SWITCHING ON:
ANTI-CONDENSATION TUBE:
• If the refrigerator is transported in cold
season, unpack the refrigerator in a warm
room and do not switch on it for at least
12 hours.
• The anti-condensation tube is laid inside
the enclosure around the front face of the

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
refrigerator, call the phone No. of LG
Customer Information Center. 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.
4 Press and hold the Freezer Temperature
button for three seconds while continuing
to hold your phone to the speaker.
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.
5 After you hear three beeps, release the
Freezer Temperature button.
Using Smart Diagnosis
6 Keep the phone in place until the tone
transmission has finished. This takes about
15 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.
First, call the phone No. of LG Customer
Information Center. Only use the Smart
Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so
by the LG call center agent.

NOTE
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.
