Special features
The refrigerator features user-oriented devices that you can use to benefit from.
Water/Ice dispenser (applicable models only)
Using the dispenser, you can dispense water with or without ice.
The water dispenser offers 3 options: chilled water, cubed ice, and crushed ice. To
dispense chilled water, press Water on the dispenser panel. Put a water glass under the
dispenser, and then push the dispenser lever.
To dispense water with ice
1. With the Ice Maker enabled, press
Cubed Ice or Crushed Ice to select the
ice type.
2. Put a water glass under the dispenser,
and then push the dispenser lever with
the glass. Ice will be dispensed from the
dispenser.
3. Press Water to select water.

4. Push the dispenser lever with the
glass. Water will be dispensed from the
dispenser.
NOTE
• The dispenser will stop dispensing if you keep pushing the dispenser lever for about 1
minute. To dispense more water, release and push the lever again.
• Make sure the glass is in line with the dispenser to prevent the dispensed water from
spilling out.
• If you do not use the water dispenser for 2-3 days, the dispensed water may have an
abnormal smell or taste. This is not a system failure. Discard the first 1-2 glasses of
water.
Ice maker (applicable models only)
The refrigerator has a built-in ice maker that automatically dispenses ice so that you can
enjoy filtered water with cubed or crushed ice.
Ice making
After you have installed your refrigerator and plugged it in, follow these instructions to
ensure proper ice making and to keep the ice bucket full of ice:
1. Let the refrigerator operate for at least 24 hours to ensure optimal performance.
2. Dispense the first 4 to 6 ice cubes into a glass.

NOTE
• A newly installed filter may cause the water dispenser to spurt water briefly. This is
because air has entered the water line.
• This replacement process may involve the refrigerator to drip water onto the floor. If
this happens, wipe up with dry cloths.
Reverse osmosis water filtration system
The water pressure of the water supply system to a reverse osmosis water filtration
system must be between 241 kPa and 827 kPa.
The water pressure of the reverse osmosis water filtration system to the refrigerator’s
cold water line must be at least 276 kPa. If the water pressure is below the specified:
• Check if the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter
if necessary.
• Refill the water tank in the reverse osmosis system with water.
• 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.
For more information or servicing, contact a licensed plumbing professional.
