Saving Energy Tips
Install the appliance in a cool, dry room with
adequate ventilation. Ensure that it is not
exposed to direct sunlight and never put it near
a direct source of heat (radiator, for example).
Never block any vents or grilles on the appliance.
Allow warm food to cool down before placing it
in the appliance.
Put frozen food in the refrigerator to thaw.
You can then use the low temperatures of the
frozen products to cool food in the refrigerator.
Do not keep the door of the appliance open for
too long when putting food in or taking food
out. The shorter time for which the door is
open, the less ice will form in the freezer.
Clean the rear of the refrigerator regularly. Dust
increases energy consumption.
Do not set temperature colder than necessary.
Ensure sufficient air exhaust at the refrigerator
base and at the back wall of the refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent openings.
Allow clearance to the right, left, back and top
when installing. This will help reduce power
consumption and keep your energy bills lower.

A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful
features on your new refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the water filter removes unwanted
particles from your water. However, it does not
sterilize or destroy microorganisms. You may need
to purchase a water purifying system to do that.

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 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa.) If
the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system
is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
• 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 your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when used
in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.
Remove the water filter.
If you have questions about your water pressure,
call a licensed, qualified plumber.

Otherwise, the tray may be stuck.
Water clouding phenomenon
All water provided to the refrigerator flows
through the core filter which is an alkaline
water filter. In the filtering process, the
pressure of the water that has flowed out
of the filter is increased, and the water
becomes saturated with oxygen and
nitrogen. When this water flows out into
the air, the pressure plummets and the
oxygen and nitrogen get supersaturated,
which results in gas bubbles. The water
may temporarily look misty or cloudy due
to these oxygen bubbles. After a few
seconds, the water will look clear.
Please wait 1 second before removing
the cup after dispensing water to prevent
spills. Do not pull out the lever dispenser
after dispensing ice or water. It comes
back automatically. Ice is made in cubes.
When you select “Crushed”, the ice maker
grinds the ice cubes into crushed ice.
