BOTTLE RACK COOLING Cool air vent is placed on the refrigerator door to provide Bottle Rack with cool air. When you newly put a food on Bottle Rack, a sensor in the middle of the fresh food section detects it and then provides Bottle Rack with cool air. As a result, cooling time is shortened. If water of foreign substances enter the cool air vent while cleaning, efficiency will be lowered. In addition, if gasket is damaged, efficiency may be lowered owing to the escape of cool air. ICE MAKING To make ice cubes, fill the ice tray with water and place it in the freezer. To remove ice cubes, hold the tray at its ends and twist gently. TIP To remove ice cubes easily, run water on the tray before twisting. 8 Cool air vent 00.1.17 1:34 PM ˘`9 3828JD8171P(O/M)‡»` OPERATIONS FRESH MEAT When the door is opened, in the fresh meat.
