IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This guide contains many important safety messages. Always read and obey.
This is the safety alert symbol. It alerts you to safety messages that inform you of hazards that can
kill or hurt you or others, or cause damage to the product. All safety messages will be preceded by
the safety alert symbol and the hazard signal word DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION. These
words mean:
You will be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
You can be killed or seriously injured if you don’t follow instructions.
Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or
moderate injury, or product damage only.
All safety messages will identify the hazard, tell you how to reduce the change of injury and tell you what can
happen if the instructions are not followed.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury to
persons when using your product, basic safety
precautions should be followed, including the
following. Read all instructions before using this
appliance:
• The refrigerator-freezer should be positioned so that
supply plug is accessible for quick disconnection when
accident happens.
• 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.
• This refrigerator must be properly installed in
accordance with the Attention Installer Instructions that
were taped to the front of the refrigerator.
• After your refrigerator is in operation, do not touch the
cold surfaces in the freezer compartment when hands
are damp or wet. Skin may adhere to the extremely
cold surfaces.
• In refrigerator with automatic icemakers, avoid contact
with the moving parts of the ejector mechanism, or with
the heating element that releases the cubes.
DO NOT place fingers or hands on the automatic ice
making mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in.
• DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely. The United States Department of
Agriculture in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
“...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have
thawed if they still contain ice crystals or if they are still
cold below 40 °F (4 °C).”
“Thawed ground meats, poultry, or fish that have any
off-odor or off-color should not be frozen and should not
be eaten. Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If the
odor or color of any food is poor or questionable, get rid
of it. The food may be dangerous to eat.”
“Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the eating
quality of foods, particulary fruits, vegetables and
prepared foods. The eating quality of red meats is
affected less than that of many other foods. Use
refrozen foods as soon as possible to save as much of
their quality as you can.”
• NEVER unplug your refrigerator by pulling on the
power cord. Always grip the plug firmly and pull it
straight out from the outlet.
• Repair or replace immediately all electric service cords
that have become frayed or otherwise damaged. Do
not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage
along its length or at either the plug or connector end.
• When moving your refrigerator away from the wall, be
careful not to roll over or damage it in any way.
• Do not crush or damage the water line.
• Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable (vapors
or liquids) in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Do not allow children to climb, stand or hang on the
refrigerator doors or shelves in the refrigerator. They
could damage the refrigerator and seriously injure
themshelves.
• Keep fingers out of ‘pinch point’ areas; clearances
between the doors and cabinet are necessarily small.
Be careful when you open the doors when children are
in the area.
• Unplug your refrigerator before cleaning or making any
repairs.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any servicing be
performed by a qualified individual.
• Before replacing a burned-out light bulb, unplug the
refrigerator or turn off power at the circuit breaker or
fuse box in order to avoid contact with a live
filament. (A burned-out light bulb may break when
being replaced).
NOTE: Setting either or both controls to the OFF
position does not remove power to the light circuit.
• Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment, they
may break when frozen, causing damage.

DANGER: RISK OF CHILD ENTRAPMENT
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety.
Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of
the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still
dangerous… even if they will sit for “just a few days”.
If you are getting rid of your old refrigerator, please
follow the instructions at right to help prevent accidents.
Before you throw away your old
Refrigerator or freezer:
• Take off the doors.
• Leave the shelves in place so that children
may not easily climb inside.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
CFC DISPOSAL
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that
used CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons). CFCs are believed to
harm stratospheric ozone. If you are throwing away your
old refrigerator, make sure the CFC refrigerant is
removed for proper disposal by a qualified servicer. If
you intentionally release this CFC refrigerant, you can
be subject to fines and imprisonment under provisions
of environmental legislation. 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). To recycle, please contact your local agency.
GROUNDING REQUIREMENTS
IMPORTANT: Please read carefully.
TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
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.
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation,
cleaning, or removing a light bulb, turn the control
(Thermostat, Refrigerator Control or Freezer Control,
depending on the model) to OFF and then disconnect
the refrigerator from the electrical source. 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.
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.

3-prong
grounding
plug
USE OF EXTENSION CORD
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 (in the United States), 3-wire grounding type
appliance extension cord having a grounding type plug
and outlet, and that the electrical rating of the cord be
15 amperes (minimum) and 120 V.
Ensure proper
ground exists
before use.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
Use of an extension cord will increase the clearance
needed for the back of the refrigerator.
The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own
individual properly grounded electrical outlet rated for
115 V / 60 Hz, AC only, and fused at 15 or 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.
WARNING
POWER CORD REPLACEMENT
If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer, by our service center or by
qualified personal by LG Electronics, to avoid some
risk.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
ENSURING PROPER AIR CIRCULATION
NEXT
In order to ensure proper temperatures, air must flow
between the refrigerator and freezer sections. As shown
in the illustration below, cool air enters through the
refrigerator of the freezer section and moves up. Most of
the air then flows through the freezer section vents and
recirculates under the freezer floor. The rest of the air
enters the refrigerator section through the top vent.
1. Clean your refrigerator thoroughly and wipe off dust
accumulated during shipping.
2. Install accessories such as ice cube bin, drawers,
shelves, etc., in their proper places. They are packed
together to prevent possible damage during shipment.
3. Let your refrigerator run for at least 2 or 3 hours
before putting food in it. Check the flow of cold air in
the freezer compartment to ensure proper cooling.
Your refrigerator is now ready for use.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
ADJUSTING CONTROL SETTINGS
FOOD STORAGE GUIDE
Give the refrigerator time to cool down completely
before making final adjustments. It is best to wait 24
hours before doing this. The initial settings mentioned in
CONTROL PANEL FEATURES section should be
correct for normal household refrigerator use. The
controls are set correctly when milk or juice is as cold as
you like and when ice cream is firm.
Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and
moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This
prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the
refrigerator. For dated products, check date code to
ensure freshness.
Items
The refrigerator control functions as the thermostat for
the entire appliance (refrigerator and freezer sections).
The colder the setting, the longer the compressor will
run to keep the temperature colder. The freezer control
Adjusts the cold air flow from the freezer to the
refrigerator. Setting the freezer control to a lower
temperature keeps more cold air in the Freezer
compartment to make it colder.
How t o
Butter or
margarine
Keep opened butter in a covered
dish or closed compartment.
When storing an extra supply,
wrap in freezer packaging and
freeze.
Cheese
If you need to adjust temperatures in the refrigerator or
freezer, start by adjusting the refrigerator. Then wait 24
hours before checking the freezer temperature. If it is
too warm or too cold, then adjust the freezer control.

USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
STORING FROZEN FOOD
WATER DISPENSER
NOTE: For further information about preparing food for
freezing or food storage times, check a freezer guide or
a reliable cookbook.
Your refrigerator has a mechanism that dispatch cool
water and ice cubes without open the door.
Packaging
• Tray can be easily removed by pressing and pulling it.
Successful freezing depends on correct packaging.
When you close and seal the package, it must not allow
air or moisture in or out. If it does, you could have food
odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and
also dry out frozen food.
Packaging recommendations:
• Rigid plastic containers with "tight-fitting lids”
• Straight-sided canning/freezing jars
• Heavy-duty aluminum foil
• Plastic-coated paper
• Non-permeable plastic wraps
• Specied freezer-grade self-sealing plastic bags
• Tilt up the front of tray slightly and snap the ribs into
the holes to reinstall the tray.
Follow package or container instructions for proper
freezing methods.
Do not use
• Bread wrappers
• Non-polyethylene plastic containers
• Containers without tight lids
• Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap
• Thin, semi-permeable wrap
Holes
Ribs
CAUTION: Do not keep beverage cans or plastic
food containers in the freezer compartment. They
may be break if they freeze.
Freezing
Your freezer will not quick-freeze any large quantity of
food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer
than will freeze within 24 hours [no more than 2 to 3 lbs
of food per cubic foot (0.9 to 1.35 kg per cubic meter) of
freezer space]. Leave enough space in the freezer for
air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave
enough room at the front so the door around packages.
Can close tightly.
WARNING
Do not put your hands into the water&ice dispenser
opening. Doing so maycause an injury to your hand.
Storage times will vary according to the quality and type
of food, the type of packaging or wrap used (airtight and
moisture-proof) and the storage temperature. Ice
crystals inside a sealed package are normal. This simply
means that moisture in the food and air inside the
package have condensed, creating ice crystals.
NOTE: Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for
30 minutes, then package and freeze. Cooling hot foods
before freezing saves energy.

CARE AND CLEANING
To change the refrigerator lamp:
Remove cover by pressing upward on bottom  and
rotating outward ‚ turn the bulb counterclockwise.
Replace with 40 watt (maximum) appliance bulb.
• DO NOT refreeze frozen foods which have thawed
completely.
The United States Department of Agriculture in Home and
Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
...You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have thawed if
they still contain ice crystals or if they are still cold-below
4 °C.
...Thawed ground meats, poultry or fish that have any
off-odor or off-color should not be frozen and should not be
eaten.
Thawed ice cream should be discarded. If the odor or color
of any food is poor or questionable, dispose of it. The food
may be dangerous to eat.
Even partial thawing and refreezing reduces the eating
quality of foods, particulary fruits, vegetables and prepared
foods.
The eating quality of red meats is affected less than that of
many other foods. Use refrozen foods as soon as possible
to save as much of their quality as you can.
To change the Dispenser lamp:
Remove lamp by carefully turning
it out of socket.
Replace with a 15 watt (maximum)
appliance bulb.
WHEN YOU GO ON VACATION
If you choose to leave the refrigerator ON while you
are away, follow these steps to prepare your refrigerator
before you leave.
1. Use up any perishables and freeze other items.
2. Empty the ice bin.
3. Turn OFF the Icemaker. NOTE: If the ambient
temperature will drop below freezing, have a qualied
service technician drain the water supply system (on
some models) to prevent serious property damage
due to possible flooding from ruptured water lines or
connections.
POWER INTERRUPTIONS
1. If the power will be out for 24 hours or less, keep all
refrigerator doors closed to help foods stay cold and
frozen.
2. If the power will be out for more than 24 hours:
a) Remove all frozen food and store it in a frozen
food locker.
OR
b) Place 2 lbs. (1 kg) of dry ice in the freezer for
every cubic foot (28 L) of freezer space. This will
keep the food frozen for two to four days. While
handling dry ice, wear gloves to protect your hands
from frostbite.
If you choose to turn the refrigerator OFF before you
leave, follow these steps.
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and empty ice
bin.
2. Unplug refrigerator.
3. Clean refrigerator, wipe, and dry well.
4. Tape rubber or wood blocks to the tops of both doors
to prop them open far enough for air to get in. This
stops odor and mold from building up.
WARNING
WHEN YOU MOVE
When you are moving your refrigerator to a new home,
follow these steps to prepare it for the move.
1. Remove all food from the refrigerator and pack all
frozen food in dry ice.
2. Unplug refrigerator.
3. Clean refrigerator, wipe, and dry well.
4. Empty water from the defrost pan.
5. Clean, wipe and dry thoroughly.
c) If neither a food locker nor dry ice is available,
consume or dispose of food at once.
REMEMBER: In a power failure, a full freezer
stays cold longer than a partially filled one. If you see
that food contains ice crystals, it may be affected. If
the condition of the food is poor, or if you feel it is
unsafe, dispose of it.
18
CARE AND CLEANING
6. Take out all removable parts, wrap them well and
tape together so they don’t shift and rattle during the
move. Refer to sections in Using your Refrigerator for
removal instructions.
7. Depending on the model, raise the front of the
refrigerator so it rolls more easily OR screw in the
leveling legs all the way so they don’t scrape the
floor. See the DOOR ALIGNMENT section.
8. Tape the doors shut and tape the power cord to the
refrigerator cabinet.
The icemaker will fill with water when it cools to freezing.
A newly-installed refrigerator may take 12 to 24 hours to
begin making ice cubes.
Throw away the first few batches of ice to allow the
water line to clear.
Be sure nothing interferes with the sweep of the feeler
arm.
When the bin fills to the level of the feeler arm, the
icemaker will stop producing ice.
When you get to your new home, put everything back
and refer to the REFRIGERATION INSTALLATION
section for setup instructions.
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.
NOTE: If the cube size is smaller or larger than you
expected, you can regulate the size with the cube size
button.
WARNING
Personal Injury Hazard
Every time you press the cube size button, the indicator
moves up one light. The higher the light position the
larger cubes will be. Pressing at highest position returns

CONNECTING THE WATER LINE
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
This water line installation is not warranted by the
refrigerator or icemaker manufacturer. Follow these
instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive
water damage.
Copper Tubing, 1/4” (6.35 mm) outer
diameter to connect the refrigerator
to the water supply. Be sure both
ends of the tubing are cut square.
To determine how much tubing you need: measure
the distance from the water valve on the back of the
refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then add 8 feet
(2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8
feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10” [25 cm]
diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the
wall after installation.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house
plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and
lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified
plumber to correct water hammer before installing the
water supply line to the
. refrigerator
To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook up
the water line to the hot water line.
Be sure that the kit you select allows at least 8 feet
(2.4 m) as described above.
A cold water supply .The water pressure must be
between 0.137 and 0.82 MPa (20 and 120 PSI or 1.4
bar and 8.2 bar) on models without a water filter and
between 0.275 and 0.82 MPa (40 and 120 PSI or 2.8
bar and 8.2 bar) on models with a water filter.
If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water
line, make sure the icemaker power switch is in the O
(off) position.
Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
When using any electrical device (such as a power
drill) during installation, be sure the device is doubleinsulated or grounded in a manner to prevent the hazard
of electric shock, or is battery-powered.
Power drill.

Adjustable Wrench.
All installations local must be in accordance with
plumbing code requirements.
Flat head-and Phillipsscrewdrivers.
NOTE: Wear eye protection.
• 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 instruction
carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water
damage.
• Two 1/4” (6.35 mm) outer diameter
compression nuts and 2
Ferrules (sleeves) to
connect the copper tubing to
the shutoff valve and the
refrigerator water valve.
• 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 0.27 MPa to 0.41 MPa or 40 to 60 PSI
(2.8 kg•f/cm2~ 4.2 kg•f/cm2, less than 2~3 sec to fill a
cup of 7 oz capacity).
• If your existing copper water
line has a flared fitting at the
end, you will need an
adapter (available at
plumbing supply stores) to
connect the water line to the refrigerator OR you can
cut off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then use
a compression fitting.
If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis system
is less than 21 PSI or 0.14 MPa (1.5 kg•f/cm2, more
than 4 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz capacity).
Shutoff valve to connect to
the cold water line. The
shutoff valve should have a
water inlet with a minimum
inside diameter of 5/32”
(3.96 mm) at the point of connection to the
COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type shutoff valves are
included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing,
make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your
local plumbing codes.
• 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.

than at the bottom, to avoid drawing
off any sediment from the water pipe.
6. ROUTE THE TUBING
Route the tubing between the cold water line and the
refrigerator.
3. DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a 1/4” (6.35 mm) hole in the water
pipe (even if using a selfpiercing valve) using a
sharp bit. Remove any burrs
resulting from drilling the
hole in the pipe. Take care
not to allow water to drain
into the drill. Failure to drill a 1/4” (6.35 mm) hole
may result in reduced ice production or smaller cubes.
Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the wall or
floor (behind the refrigerator or adjacent base
cabinet) as close to the wall as possible.
NOTE: Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing [about
8 feet (244 mm) coiled into 3 turns of about 10”
(25 cm) diameter] to allow the refrigerator to move
out from the wall after installation.
7. CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE VALVE
Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve)
for copper tubing onto the end of the tubing and
connect it to the shutoff valve. Make sure the tubing
is fully inserted into the valve. Tighten the

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
• 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.
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 actually are. The following describes the kinds of
sounds and what may be making them.
• 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 to the refrigerant flowing in your refrigerator.
• Contraction and expansion of the inside walls may
cause 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.
