CHECKing tHE watEr DisPEnsEr LinE (oPtionaL)
A water dispenser is just one of the helpful features on your new Samsung refrigerator. To help promote better
health, the Samsung water filter removes unwanted particles from your water. However, it does not sterilize
or destroy microorganisms. You will need to purchase a water purifying system to do that. In order for the
icemaker to operate properly, water pressure of 138 ~862 Kpa is required. Under normal conditions, a 170 cc
paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds. If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below
138 Kpa), you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure. Make sure the water storage
tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled. To do this, press the water dispenser lever until the water runs from
the water outlet.
Water Line installation Kits are included with unit. You can find it in freezer drawer.

Installing the water filter.
1. Remove the water filter from the box and put a replacement
indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
2. Place a sticker on the filter that dates six months in the
future. For example, if you install the water filter in March,
put the “SEP” sticker on the filter to remind you to replace in
September. That way you’ll know when it is time to replace
the filter. Normally filter life is about 6 months.
3. N
ext, remove the fixed cap by turning it counter clockwise.
Keep the cap in a safe place for use if you choose not to use a
filter.
4. Remove the filter’s protective cap and then
position and insert the filter into the filter housing.
5. Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align
with the indication mark on the cover, locking the
filter in position. Make sure that the indicator is
lined up with the “lock” position. Remember, do
not over-tighten.
If your model contains wine shelf, you should
remove the wine shelf before installing water
filters.

Removing any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing
filter.
1. Turn ON the main water supply & turn OFF the valve to the
water supply line.
2. Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear
(approx. 1L). This will clean the water supply system and remove
air from the lines.
3. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
4. Open the refrigerator door and make sure there are no water
leaks coming from the water filter.
A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause water to
briefly spurt from the water dispenser. This is due to air getting
into the line. It should pose no problem to operation.
Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray. (Optional)
1. Lift up the icemaker bucket and gently pull out of the freezer.
2. When you press the Test button for 3 seconds, the ice cube container is filled with water from the
water supply tap after ice tray is twisted. Check to make sure the amount of water is correct(see
the illustration below).
If the water level is too low, the ice cubes will be small. This is a water pressure problem from

The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too
frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side. This may cause the
digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their normal set temperatures
the blinking will stop. If the blinking continues, you may need to “reset” the refrigerator. Try
unplugging the appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

before putting them back into place.
02 OPERATING
CLEaning tHE rEfrigErator
Cleaning the Exterior
Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean, soft cloth.
Spray water onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly
on the surface of the refrigerator. This helps ensure an even
distribution of moisture to the surface. The doors, handles and
cabinet surfaces should be cleaned with a mild detergent and
then wiped dry with a soft cloth. To keep your appliance looking
its best, the exterior should be polished once or twice a year.
WARNING
Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox™ for cleaning.
They may damage the surface of the appliance and can create a risk of fire.
Cleaning the Soft touch type Home Bar
Use a damp cloth to clean the ice and water dispenser.
Then wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
Use soft touch type Home Bar as follow
- In the case of opening the Home Bar, it will be opened
automatically when you push the upper position of Home Bar
until rattling.
- In the case of closing the Home Bar, push the upper position
of Home Bar until rattling.
Cleaning the Rubber door seals
If the rubber door seals are dirty the doors may not close
properly, and the refrigerator will not operate efficiently. Keep the
door seals free of grit or grime by cleaning the doors with a mild
detergent and damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
WARNING
Do not spray the refrigerator with water while it is plugged
in, as it may cause an electric

Cartridge
If the cartridge dries in a confined (or humid) area, there may be an odor to the cartridge. If this
occurs, re-clean and allow to dry in a well-ventilated area.
Cleaning behind the Refrigerator
To keep cords and exposed parts free of dust and dirt accumulation, vacuum behind the
appliance once or twice a year.

The “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To give you
some time to get a new filter, the light will come on up just before the capacity of the current filter runs out.
Changing the filter on time provides you with the freshest, cleanest water from your fridge.
1. Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
2. Place a sticker on the filter that dates six months in the future. For example, if you are replacing
the water filter in March, put the “SEP” (September) sticker on the filter to remind you to replace
in September. Normally filter life is about every 6 months.
3. Next, remove the fixed cap by turning it counter clockwise.
4. Remove the new filter’s protective cap and remove the old filter.
5. Position and insert the new filter into the filter housing.
Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align with the indication mark on the cover, locking
the filter in position. Make sure that the indicator is lined up with the “lock” position. Do not over
