• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every shelf level.
This provides even distribution of cooling inside cabinets to keep
your food fresh longer.
Door Alarm
• Beeper reminds you that the door is open.
Xtra FreshTM
• Optimized humidity control keeps vegetables & fruits fresh.
Arctic Select ZoneTM Drawer
• Arctic Select Zone Drawer is convertible from freezer to refrigerator by TDM system. You can select Power Freeze, Freeze,
Soft Freeze, or Cool according to foods.
Fresh Select ZoneTM Drawer

1) In order to operate the ice maker properly, water pressure of 1.4 ~ 8.5kgf/cm2 (0.14~0.83Mpa,
19.9~120.9psi, 1.37~8.3bar) is required.
In this range a 100 cc paper cup can be filled in 10 seconds.
2) The water filter removes particles. It does not sterilize or destroy any micro-organisms.
3) If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (1.4kgf/cm2, 0.14Mpa, 19.9psi, 1.37bar),
you should install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
4) Ensure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is preperly filled initially. Push the water dis
penser lever until the water runs from the outlet.
A universal water supply kit is available at extra cost from your dealer. The refrigerator

Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter.
1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off the valve of the
water supply line.
2) Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear

clear air from the lines.
3) Additional flushing may be required in some households.
4) Open the fridge door and check if water leaks around the

3) Important Facts About Your Dispenser :
Do not add ice from trays or bags to the storage bin. It may not crush or dispense well.
Avoid overfilling glass with ice and use of narrow or extra-tall glasses. Backed-up ice can jam the chute
or cause the door in the chute to freeze shut. If ice is blocking the chute, poke it through with a wooden
spoon.
Beverages and foods should not be quick-chilled in the ice storage bin.
To keep dispensed ice from missing the glass, put the glass close to, but not touching, the dispenser
opening.
Some crushed ice may be dispensed even though you selected CUBES. This happens occasionally
when a few cubes accidentally get directed to the crusher.
After crushed ice is dispensed, some water may drip from the chute.
4) Water Supply to the Icemaker :
The icemaker must be connected to a cold water line.
5) Start the Icemaker :
Set the type of ice to the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position. The icemaker will not begin to operate
until it reachs its operating of -12°C or below. It will then begin operation automatically if the type of ice
is in the "Cubed Ice" or "Crushed Ice" position.
Warning
• If there is no water supply, turn off the icemaker to save energy.
• In lower water pressure conditions, the water valve may turn on up to 3 times to make sure
enough water reaches the icemaker.
• Allow the appliance to stand for 2hours after installation.
Use only the ice maker provided with the refrigerator.
