HOW TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
IMPORTANT: Please read carefully.
wWARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
For personal safety, this appliance must be
properly grounded. Have the wall outlet and
the circuit checked by a qualified electrician to
make sure the outlet is properly grounded.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
USE OF EXTENSION CORDS
The refrigerator should always be plugged into
its own individual properly grounded electrical
outlet rated for 120 volts, 60 Hz, AC only, and
fused at 20 amperes. This provides the
best performance and also prevents overloading
house wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is
recommended that a separate circuit serving
only this appliance be provided.
Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off with
a switch or pull chain. Do not use an extension
cord. Where a standard two-prong wall outlet is
encountered, it is your personal responsibility
and obligation to have it replaced with a properly
grounded three-prong wall outlet.
Do not, under any circumstances, cut or
remove the third (ground) prong from the
power cord.
Do not use an adapter plug.
NOTE: Some models have LED interior lighting and
service should be performed by a qualified technician.
When you are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to
the electrical source and reset the control
(Thermostat, Refrigerator Control, or Freezer Control,
depending on the model) to the desired setting.
Because of potential safety hazards under
certain conditions, we strongly recommend
against the use of an extension cord.
However, if you still elect to use an extension
cord, it is absolutely necessary that it be a UL-listed
(USA), 3-wire grounding-type appliance
extension cord having a grounding-type plug
and outlet and that the electrical rating of the
cord be 20 amperes (minimum) and 120 volts.
Use of an extension cord will increase the
clearance needed for the back of the
refrigerator.

CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
WARNING
Connect to safe drinking water supply
only.
• The water pressure must be between 20 and
120 psi (140 and 830 kPa ) on models without
a water filter and between 40 and 120 psi
(280 and 830 kPa ) on models with a water filter.
• If water pressure does not reach 20 psi
(140 kPa ) or falls below, it is necessary to
purchase a separate pressure pump for normal
automatic icemaker and water dispensing operation.
• It is recommended that the total length of the water
feed tube does not exceed 26 ft. (8 m).
• Install the water supply line where it will not be
affected by heat.
• If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, This water line
installation is not warranted by the refrigerator or
icemaker manufacturer. Follow next instructions
carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water
damage.
• If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs
to be a minimum of 40 and 60 psi ( 280 and
420 kPa), less than 2.0~3.0sec to fill a cup of
7oz capacity).
If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis
system is less than 20 psi (140 kPa , more than
4.0sec to fill a cup of 7oz (200cc) capacity):
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the
reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the
filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill after heavy usage.
• If the issue about water pressure from reverse
osmosis remains, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
16
IMPORTANT: Read all directions thoroughly before
you begin.
• If operating the refrigerator before installing the
water connection, turn the icemaker to the OFF
position to prevent operation without water.
• All installations must be in accordance with local
plumbing code requirements.
• Use copper tubing and check for leaks.
• Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will
remain above freezing.
• It may take up to 24 hours for the icemaker to begin
producing ice.
Tools Required
• Standard screwdriver
• 7/16-in. and 1/2-in. open-end wrenches or two
adjustable wrenches
• 1/4-in. nut driver
• 1/4-in. drill bit
• Hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded)
NOTE: Refrigerator dealers offer a kit with a 1/4-in.
saddle-type shutoff valve, a union, and copper tubing.
Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve
complies with local plumbing codes.
Do not use a piercing-type or 3/16-in. saddle valve
which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
NOTE: The Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Plumbing Code 248CMR shall be adhered to.
Saddle valves are illegal and use is not permitted in
Massachusetts. Consult with your licensed plumber.
Cold Water Supply
• The icemaker water valve contains a flow washer
which is used as a water pressure regulator.
• The icemaker needs to be connected to a cold water
line with water pressure between 20 and 120 psi
(140 and 830 kPa) on models without a water filter
and between 40 and 120 psi (280 and 830 kPa ) on
models with a water filter.
IMPORTANT: Before connecting the tubing to the water
line, unplug the refrigerator or disconnect the power.
• Turn off the main water supply and open the nearest
faucet to relieve pressure in the line. Opening an outside
faucet may help drain water from the line in the house.
• Find a 1/2-in. vertical COLD water pipe near the
refrigerator.
NOTE: A horizontal pipe will work, but the following
precaution must be taken: drill on the top of the pipe, not the
bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill and
also keep normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
• To determine the length of copper tubing you will need,
measure from the connection on the lower left rear of the
refrigerator to the water pipe. Add 7 ft. (2.1 m) to allow for
moving the refrigerator for cleaning. Use 1/4-in. O.D.
(outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both ends of the
copper tubing are cut square.
• Using a drill, drill a 1/4-in. hole in the cold water pipe you
have selected.
• Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the
pipe clamp. Be sure the outlet end is solidly in the 1/4-in.
drilled hole in the water pipe and the washer is under the
pipe clamp. Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe
clamp screws carefully and evenly so the washer makes a
watertight seal.
Do not overtighten or you may crush the copper tubing,
especially if soft (coiled) copper tubing is used. Now you
are ready to connect the copper tubing.
• Slip the compression sleeve and the compression nut onto
the copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing
into the outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw the
compression nut onto the outlet end with a wrench. A flare
nut wrench works best, but an open-end wrench will
suffice. Do not overtighten.
• Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink,
and turn on the main water supply. Flush out the tubing
until the water is clear. Turn off the shutoff valve on the
water pipe. Coil the copper tubing as shown below.
IMPORTANT: Before connecting the tubing to the
refrigerator, be sure the refrigerator power cord is not
plugged into the wall outlet.
NOTE: If your refrigerator is equipped with an internal water
filter, an external in-line water filter should not be used.
• Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the
end of the tubing as shown.
• Insert the end of the copper tubing into the connection as
far as possible. While holding the tubing, tighten the fitting.
IMPORTANT: Tighten any connections that leak.
Open the water at the shutoff valve.
• Plug in the refrigerator.
• Arrange the coil of copper tubing behind the refrigerator so
it does not vibrate against the back of the refrigerator or
against the wall.
• Check for leaks.
• Before connecting the water line to house, purge the
house line for 2 minute.
NOTE: It may take a few seconds for water to begin to flow
as the internal tank fills and air clears from the lines.
• Push the refrigerator back to the wall.
• Set the icemaker switch to the ON position.
NOTE: The icemaker will not begin to operate until it
reaches its operating temperature of 15°F (-9°C).
It will then begin operation automatically.
NOTE: Throw away the first few batches of ice (about
20 pieces).

It is normal for several cubes to be stuck together.
If ice is not used frequently, old ice cubes will become
cloudy, taste stale, and shrink.
• The icemaker water valve will buzz as the icemaker
fills with water. If the power switch is in the I (on)
position, it will buzz even if it has not yet been
hooked up to water.
To stop the buzzing, move the power switch to O
(off).
NOTE: Keeping the power switch in the I (on)
position before the water line is connected can
damage the icemaker.
• You will hear the sound of cubes dropping into the
bin and water running in the pipes as the icemaker
refills.
Preparing for vacation
Set the icemaker power switch to O (off) and shut off
the water supply to the refrigerator.
If the ambient temperature will drop below freezing,
have a qualified servicer drain the water supply
system to prevent serious property damage due to
flooding from ruptured water lines or connections.

STORING FOODS
• Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment.
• How food is frozen and thawed is an important
factor in maintaining freshness and flavor.
• Do not store food that spoils easily, such as
bananas and melons, at low temperatures.
• 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 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 flavor and
nutrition.
• Do not block air vents with food or containers.
Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps the
refrigerator temperatures even.
• Do not open the doors frequently. Opening the
doors allows warm air to enter the refrigerator and
freezer compartments, which causes temperatures
to rise.
• Never overload the door racks; overloading may
push against the inner racks and prevent the doors
from closing correctly.
22
Freezer compartment
• Do not store glass bottles in the freezer
compartment; glass may break when the contents
are frozen.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed.
This causes loss of flavor and nutrition.
• Do not touch cold foods or containers, especially
those made of metal, with wet hands or place glass
products in the freezer compartment.
• Do not use the egg box as an ice bin in the freezer.
The egg box will break easily if it freezes.
Refrigerator compartment
• Avoid placing moist food on the 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.
NOTE: If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid
place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of
vegetables in the refrigerator may cause
condensation to form. Wipe the condensation with a
clean cloth or a paper towel.

23
SHELF HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
The shelves in your refrigerator are adjustable to
meet your individual storage needs.
Storing similar food items together in your
refrigerator and adjusting the shelves to fit
different heights of items will make finding the
exact item you want easier; it will also reduce
the amount of time the refrigerator door is open,
saving energy.
IMPORTANT: Do not clean glass shelves with warm
water when they are cold. Shelves may break if
exposed to sudden temperature changes or impact,
such as bumping. For your protection, glass shelves
are made with tempered glass, which will shatter into
small, pebble-sized pieces.
24
NOTE: Glass shelves are heavy. Use special care
when removing them to avoid dropping them.
Adjusting Shelves
Remove shelves from the shipping position and place
shelves in the position you want.
wCAUTION
Make sure that shelves are level from one side to the
other. Failure to do so may result in the shelf’s falling
or spilling food.
Remove Shelf
Reinstall Shelf
Tilt up the front of the shelf. Lift up the back
and pull out the shelf.
Tilt up the front of the shelf and guide the shelf
hooks into the slots at a desired height. Then
lower the front of the shelf so that the hooks drop
into the slots.

REMOVING AND REPLACING COMPONENTS
Crisper humidity control
To remove the glass
You can control the amount of humidity in the
moisture-sealed crispers. Store vegetables or
fruits requiring more or less humidity in separate
crispers. Adjust the control to any setting
between Vegetables and Fruit.
• Fruit lets moist air out of the crisper for best
storage of fruits.
• Vegetables keeps moist air in the crisper for best
storage of fresh, leafy vegetables.
CAUTION : The glass shelf over the crisper is not
firmly secured. Be careful when tilting.
• Lift up the glass under the crisper cover.
• Pull the glass up and out.
Removing crisper
• To remove, pull the drawer out to full extension.
• Lift the front of the crisper up, then pull it straight
out.

CLEANING THE REFRIGERATOR
WARNING
Explosion Hazard
• Use nonflammable cleaner.
• Failure to do so can result in death,
explosion, or fire.
Both the refrigerator and freezer sections defrost
automatically. However, clean both sections about
once a month to prevent odors. Wipe up spills
immediately.
• Unplug the refrigerator.
• Remove all removable parts, such as shelves and
crispers.
• Use a clean sponge or soft cloth and a mild
detergent in warm water. Do not use abrasive or
harsh cleaners.
• Hand wash, rinse, and thoroughly dry all surfaces.
• Plug in the refrigerator.
NOTE: Window sprays, abrasive cleaners, or
flammable fluids can scratch or damage plastic
covers or panels.
Cleaning the Exterior
For models with a stainless steel exterior, use a
commercially available stainless steel cleaner in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
You may also use a clean sponge or soft cloth and
a mild detergent 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.
IMPORTANT: Do not use cleaning waxes,
concentrated detergents, or cleaners containing
petroleum on plastic refrigerator parts such as door
liners or gaskets.
Care and Cleaning of the Interior
NOTE: Allow the freezer to warm so the cleaning
cloth will not stick.
To help remove odors, you can wash the inside of
the refrigerator with a mixture of baking soda and
warm water. Mix 2 tbsp. baking soda to 1 qt. of water
(26 g soda to 1 L of water). Be sure the baking soda
dissolves completely so it does not scratch the
surfaces of the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT: Do not use a spray nozzle to clean
the interior.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Storage
Power Failure
During average-length vacations, you will
probably find it best to leave the refrigerator in
operation. Place freezable items in the freezer for
longer life.
When you plan to store the refrigerator, remove
all food, disconnect the power cord, clean the
interior thoroughly, and block the doors open to
prevent mold and mildew. Be certain the stored
refrigerator does not present a child entrapment
danger.
Most power failures that are corrected within an
hour or two will not affect your refrigerator
temperatures. However, you should minimize the
number of door openings while the power is off.
Water may drip from the ice bin during a power
outage. To prevent this, remove the ice bin, discard
all of the ice, towel dry, and replace.
Moving
Unload the refrigerator to move it. (This is probably
not necessary when pulling it out to clean behind it.)
Be sure to let the refrigerator warm up to room
temperature, and dry the inside before closing the
doors to pack it for moving. To avoid damaging the
height-adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the
base.

SMART DIAGNOSIS
SMART DIAGNOSIS
Should you experience any problems with3
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.
If you experience problems with your
refrigerator, call 1-800-243-0000. 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.
2 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.

front of the speaker that is located on the
right hinge of the refrigerator door, when
instructed to do so by the call center.
After you hear three beeps, release the
Freezer Temperature button.
4 Keep the phone in place until the tone
transmission has finished.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.
NOTE
For best results, do not move the phone
while the tones are being transmitted.
If the call center agent is not able to get
an accurate recording of the data, you
may be asked to try again.
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.

Problem
Possible Causes
Solutions
The icemaker is
not producing ice
or not enough ice
• New installation.
• Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation for ice
production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Refrigerator is not connected
to a water supply and the
supply shutoff valve is not
turned on.
• Connect refrigerator to water supply and turn
water shutoff valve fully open.
• Reverse osmosis water
filtration system is connected
to your cold water supply.
• This can decrease water pressure and a little
water comes to icemaker.
• Kink in the water source line.
• A kink in the line can reduce water flow.
Straighten the water source line.
• Large amount of ice recently
has been removed.
• Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
• The icemaker is not turned
on.
• On the icemaker itself, there should be a power
switch. It may have an “I” and “O” on it. The “I”
position is on. If it is off, please flip it to the on
position.
• There is Something on the
Ice-detecting sensor.
• Foreign substance or frost on theIce-detecting
sensor stops making ices. To keep making ice,
clean up the surface of Ice-detecting sensor with
clean and soft fabric.
• The temperature setting is
too warm on Freezer.
• Below -1°F is recommended temperature setting
of the freezer compartment for normal ice
production. If the freezer temperature is set at a
warmer temperature, then the ice will produce at a
slower rate.
• The doors are opened often.
• If the doors of the unit are opened often, the cold
air will escape which will prevent the unit from
maintaining the set temperature. Lowering the
temperature can help, as well as not opening the
doors as frequently.
• Any door is not closing
properly.
• The door that is not closed properly, makes the
Freezer temperature high and icemaker will make
ices slowly.
• The ice compartment door is
not closing properly.
• The compartment door, that is not closed properly,
make the compartment temperature high and
icemaker makes ices slowly.
• Ice Plus is not selected.
• With this option, the cold air in the compartment is
increased as is ice production.
The interior of the
refrigerator is
covered with dust
or soot.
• The refrigerator is located
near a fire source, such as a
fireplace, chimney or candle.
• Make sure that the refrigerator is not located near
a fire source, such as a fireplace, chimney or
