Safety information
Additional tips for proper usage
• In the event of a power failure, call the local office of your electric
company and ask how long the failure is going to last.
Safety information
•
•
•
•
•
•
- Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will
not affect your refrigerator temperatures. However, you should
minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
- Should the power failure last more than 24 hours, remove and
discard all frozen food.
The refrigerator might not operate consistently (frozen contents
can thaw or temperatures can become too warm in the frozen
food compartment) if sited for an extended period of time in a
location where ambient air temperatures are constantly below the
temperatures for which the appliance is designed.
In case of particular foods, keeping it under refrigeration can have
a bad effect on preservation due to its properties.
Your appliance is frost free, which means there is no need
to manually defrost your appliance. This will be carried out
automatically.
Temperature rise during defrosting complies with ISO
requirements. If you want to prevent an undue rise in the
temperature of frozen food while the appliance defrosts, wrap the
frozen food in several layers of newspaper.
Do not re-freeze frozen foods that have thawed completely.
The temperature of two star section (sections) or compartment
(compartments) which have two star symbol ( ) is slightly higher
than other freezer compartment (compartments).
The two star section (sections) or compartment (compartments) is
(are) based on the instruction and/or the condition as delivered.

Saving Energy Tips
Safety information
• 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 (a radiator, for example).
• Not to block any vents and grilles is recommended for energy
efficiency.
• 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 refrigerator open for too long when
putting food in or taking food out. The shorter the time the door is
open, the less frost build-up you’ll have in the freezer.
• It is recommended to install the refrigerator with clearance to the
back and sides. This will help reduce power consumption and keep
your energy bills lower.
• For the most efficient use of energy, please keep the all inner
fittings such as baskets, drawers, shelves on the position supplied
by manufacturer.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar
applications such as
• staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working
environments;
• farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other residential
type environments;
• bed and breakfast type environments;
• catering and similar non-retail applications.

STEP 2 Spacing (applicable models only)
1. Open the door and locate the provided
spacers (x2).
2. Unpack both spacers and attach them
to the rear of the refrigerator as shown.
They help ventilate air to the rear wall
and save power consumption.
STEP 3 Flooring
Installation
• The surface to install the refrigerator
must support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• To protect the floor, put a large piece
of cardboard on each leg of the
refrigerator.
• Once the refrigerator is in its final
position, do not move it unless
necessary to protect the floor. If you
have to, use a thick paper or cloth such
as old carpets along the movement
path.
NOTE
If the refrigerator cannot pass through the entrance due to its size, see the Door removal
for entrance section in the Installation chapter.

STEP 4 Adjust the levelling feet
CAUTION
• The refrigerator must be levelled on a flat, solid floor. Failing to do so can cause
damage to the refrigerator or physical injury.
• Levelling must be performed with an empty refrigerator. Make sure no food items
remain inside the refrigerator.
• For safety reasons, adjust the front side a little higher than the rear side.
The refrigerator can be levelled using the rear legs that have a special screw (leveller) for
levelling purposes. Use a flat-head screwdriver for levelling.
To adjust the height of the freezer side:
Installation
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the freezer-side rear leg. Turn
the leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.
To adjust the height of the fridge side:
Insert a flat-head screwdriver into the
leveller of the fridge-side rear leg. Turn
the leveller clockwise to raise, or turn it
counter clockwise to lower.

CAUTION
• Do not use third-party water filters. Use only Samsung-provided or -approved filters.

Samsung holds no responsibility for any damage that may occur from use of third
party water filters.
• The filter indicator ( ) turns red as a reminder that lets you know it is time to replace
the water filter.
1. Shut off the main water supply.
2. Connect the water supply line to the
inlet side of the filter to the end.
3. Connect the dispenser line to the outlet
side of the filter.

6. Press and hold Filter Reset for 3
seconds to reset the filter lifecycle.
7. When replacing is complete, flush 1 litre
of water to remove impurities from the
water line.
CAUTION
When adjusting the length of the water

cut surface at a right angle. This is to
prevent a water leak.

Maintenance
NOTE
• A newly installed filter may cause the water dispenser to spurt water briefly. This is
because air has entered the waterline.
• 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 35 psi and 120 psi (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 40 psi (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.
Ordering a new filter
To purchase a new water filter (part type: HAFEX/EXP), contact a local Samsung service
centre.

coldest area of the fridge or near the cooling vent. If this
happens, move the food to other shelves in the fridge.
Emits noises.
• Make sure the refrigerator is installed on a stable, flat
surface.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
The front corners
and sides become
warm and form
condensation.
The ice maker does
not make ice.
Action
• To prevent condensation from forming, the refrigerator
has heat-proof piping in the front corners. If the ambient
temperature rises, this equipment may not work effectively.
This is not a system failure.
• Make sure the door is closed properly. Condensation may
form if you leave the door open for some time.
• Condensation may form on the exterior surface of the
refrigerator if humid air comes into contact with the cool
surface of the refrigerator.

refrigerator on a regular basis and remove any spoiled or
suspect food items.

also important to arrange food items evenly for ventilation.

Check the following:
What should I do if
the freezer door does
not close properly?
• Push the water dispenser lever to check the water supply.
• Push the ice dispenser lever to check the operation of the
auger motor in the ice maker assembly.

from running. If found, remove the objects and clear the
motor area.

icemaker bucket may contain ice chunk that obstructs the
auger motor from running properly. In this case, remove and
empty the icemaker bucket, and try dispensing ice.
