Try setting it to a lower temperature. • Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source? • Is the back of the refrigerator so close to the wall that air cannot keep circulating? (Refer to page 10 for the best location.) The food in the Refrigerator is frozen. • Is the temperature control on the display set to the correct temperature? Try setting it to a warmer temperature. • Is the temperature in the room too low? • Did you store the food too close to the air vent at the back of the refrigerator? Move the food away from the air vent. You hear unusual noise 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. It is normal and occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior. • When the automatic ice maker is on, ice is made in the ice container. After the ice is made, the container inverts and the ice falls into the storage compartment and water flows through the water valve. These operations cause noise at regular intervals, but that noise is normal. The front corners and horizontal hinged section of the appliance are hot and condensation is occurring. • Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the horizontal hinged section of the refrigerator to prevent condensation. • Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the door open for a long time. Ice Maker is not producing ice. • 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 opened? • Did you manually stop the ice making function? • Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature lower. You hear water bubbling in the Refrigerator. • This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerator coolant liquid circulating through the refrigerator. There is a bad smell in the Refrigerator. • Check for spoiled food. • Foods with strong odors (for example, fish) should be tightly covered. • Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspicious 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 drawer closed properly? troubleshooting _19 04troubleshooting PROBLEM Ambient Room Temperature Limits This fridge/freezer is designed to operate in ambient temperatures specified by its temperature class marked on the rating plate.
