Installation
Where to lnstall
Unstable installation may cause vibration and
noise. If the floor to install the refrigerator on
is not even, make the refrigerator level by
rotating the height adjusting screw. Carpet
or floorcloth on which a refrigerator is
installed may be discolored by heat from the
bottom of the refrigerator. So, it is necessary
to place a thick pad below the refrigerator.
Strong
and even floor
A proper
distance from
adjacent items
To ensure proper air circulation around the
fridge -freezer, please maintain sufficient
space on both the sides as well as top and
maintain at least 2 inches (5 cm) from the
rear wall.
Where feed

Feed water pipe Installation
Before
installation
Automatic ice maker operation needs water pressure of 147~834 kPa
(1.5~8.5 kgf/cm2) (That is, an instant paper cup (180 cc) will be fully filled within
3 sec.).
2
If water pressure does not reach the rating 147 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm ) 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 8 m and be careful for the
tube not be bent straightly. If the tube is 8 m or longer it may cause trouble in water
feed owing to the drain water pressure.
Install the feed water pipe tube at a place free from heat.
Warning
Disposal of the
old appliance
Connect to potable water supply only.
This appliance contains fluid (refrigerant, lubricant)and is made of parts and materials
which are reusable and/or recyclable.
All the important materials should be sent to the collection center of waste material
and can be reused after rework (recycling). For take back, please contact with the
local agency.

Never store beverage cans or other foods in ice storage bin for the purpose of
rapid cooling.
Such actions may damage the automatic ice maker.
Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken.
Put ice first into a glass before filling water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added to existing liquid in a glass.
Never touch a hand or other tools on ice outlet.
Touch may cause a part breakage or hand injury.
Never remove the ice maker cover.
Sometimes level the surface so that the ice storage bin is fully filled with ice.
Ice is piled up just near the ice maker. So, such status may be considered, by the ice
maker, that the ice storage bin is fully filled and ice making operation may stop.
If discolored ice is dispensed, immediately contact service center, stopping use.
Never use too narrow or deep glass.
Ice may be jammed in ice passage and, thus, the refrigerator may be failed.

Suggestion on Food storage
Storing Foods
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an
important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
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 the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
When storing the 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.
Please keep a distance at least 15 mm from the air vents to food.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator,
and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may push against by inner racks
so that the door cannot be fully closed.
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 nutrient.
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 the cold foods or containers- especially made of metallic -, with wet
hands and place glass products in the freezer compartment.
- That’s why you may have chilblains and they may be broken when their inner matters
are frozen, causing personal injury.
Refrigerator
compartment
Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from 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
•
20
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, and frequently open the door or
put a lot of vegetables in it, moisture may form in it which has no effect on its
performance. Just wipe the moisture with a cloth free.

in operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer storage.
When you plan not to operate, keep it running remove all food, disconnect the power
cord, clean the interior thoroughly, and leave each door OPEN to prevent odor
formation.
Power failure
Most power failures 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.
During power failures of longer duration, place a block of dry ice on top of your frozen
packages.
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.
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 hot air
refrigerator to prevent “sweating” on the outer cabinet wall.

power plug is inserted well into the power outlet.
Warning
Always remove power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (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
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
