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.

Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C (8°F) and -25ºC (-14°F) to suit your particular
needs. Press the Temp. button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display. Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16ºC (4°F).
The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C (8°F) and -25ºC (-14°F). When the
display reaches -14ºC (8°F), it will begin again at -25ºC (-14°F).
Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current
freezer temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new
temperature.
Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7ºC (46°F) and 1ºC (34°F) to suit your particular
needs. Press the Fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the
temperature display.
The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process.
Press the Fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will
begin tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.
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.

PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The refrigerator does not
work at all or it does not
chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping
air from circulating?
The food in the fridge is
frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room very low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest part of
the fridge? Try moving those items into the body of the fridge instead of
keeping them in the CoolSelect Zone™ drawer.
You hear unusual noises
or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping
air from circulating?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. This is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding in
relation to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
The front corners
and sides of the
appliance are hot
and condensation is
occurring.
Ice is not dispensing.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the front
corners of the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave
the door open for a long time.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before
making ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function? Make sure Ice Type is
set to Cubed or Crushed.
• Is there any ice blocked within the ice storage unit?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature
lower.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant liquid
circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
the refrigerator.
• Has a food item spoiled?
• Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so
that it is airtight.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or
suspect food.
Frost forms on the walls
of the freezer.
• Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate
freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the foods stored for efficient air
circulation.
• Is the freezer door closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Has the water supply line tubing been crushed or kinked?
Make sure the tubing is free and clear of any obstruction.
• Is the water tank frozen because the refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
