Storing Food
Food storage guide
• Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is
an important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
• Do not store food that spoils quickly, such as bananas and melons, at low
temperatures.
• Allow hot food to cool prior to storing it in the refrigerator. Placing hot food in the
refrigerator could spoil other food and lead to a higher energy consumption.
• Tightly wrap food or store it in a container with a lid.
• Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
• Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the
refrigerator and causes temperatures to rise.
• Do not overfill the door bins.
Freezer
compartment
• Do not store bottles or glass in the freezer compartment. They may break or
shatter.
• Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and
nutrients.
• When storing frozen food for an extended period of time, such as ice cream, keep
it on a shelf, not in a door bin.
• Do not touch frozen containers made of metal with wet hands.
Refrigerator
compartment
• Always clean food prior to refrigerating. Vegetables and fruits should be washed
and dried. Packed food should be wiped to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
• When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and
always store them in an upright position.
NOTE
• If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the
door or storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause condensation to form which
has no effect on its performance. Remove the condensation with a paper or
kitchen towel.

Care and Maintenance
Problem
Possible Causes
Cooling System
runs too much.
33
Solutions
Refrigerator is replacing an older
model.
Modern refrigerators require more
operating time but use less energy due to
more efficient technology.
Refrigerator was recently plugged
in or power restored.
The refrigerator will take up to 24 hours to
cool completely.
Door opened often or a large
amount of food / hot food was
added.
Adding food and opening the door warms
the refrigerator, requiring the compressor
to run longer in order to cool the
refrigerator back down. In order to
conserve energy, try to get everything you
need out of the refrigerator at once, keep
food organized so it is easy to find, and
close the door as soon as the food is
removed. (Refer to the Food Storage
Guide.)
Doors are not closed completely.
Firmly push the doors shut. If they will not
shut all the way, see the Doors will not
close completely or pop open section in
Parts & Features Troubleshooting.
Refrigerator is installed in a hot
location.
The compressor will run longer under
warm conditions. At normal room
temperatures (70°F) expect your
compressor to run about 40% to 80% of
the time. Under warmer conditions, expect
it to run even more often. The refrigerator
should not be operated above 110°F.
Condenser / back cover is clogged.
Use a vacuum cleaner with an attachment
to clean the condenser cover and vents.
Do not remove the panel covering the
condenser coil area.

compartment. To lessen the effect, reduce
the frequency and duration of door
openings.
Unit is installed in a hot location.
The refrigerator should not be operated in
temperatures above 110°F.
A large amount of food or hot food
was added to either compartment.
Adding food warms the compartment
requiring the cooling system to run. Allowing
hot food to cool to room temperature before
putting it in the refrigerator will reduce this
effect.
Doors not closed correctly.

Solution
Ticking or clicking sound
This is the sound of various parts expanding/contracting
or various control devices operating depending on the
temperature change within the refrigerator.
Whirring or motor sound
This is the sound of compressor or fan operating when
the operation of the refrigerator is starting or ending.
This is similar to the sound generated when starting or
turning off the engine of a car.
Sound of water flowing
This is the sound of refrigerant changing its state from
liquid to gas or vice versa.
Whooshing sound when
opening or closing door
This is the sound generated when the internal pressure
is temporarily lowered when the warm air entered
through the refrigerator or freezer is cooled fast.
Vibrating sound
If the refrigerator is installed on a wooden floor or next to
a wooden wall, or if the refrigerator is not leveled
properly, the sound can be loud from the vibration.
Loud sound after first
installing
When you operate the refrigerator for the first time, the
refrigerator will operate at high speed to cool quickly and
the sound can seem louder. When the internal
temperature falls below a certain level, the noise will
subside.
Door bounces open
slightly after being closed
Depending on the force or speed of closing the
refrigerator or freezer door, the door can be bumped
open from the pressure.
Be careful not to close the door too hard.
Icing or condensation
formed on the inner or
outer side of the
refrigerator
When external air flows into the cool inner surface of the
refrigerator, icing/condensation can be formed.
This will happen more easily when you open and close
the refrigerator door more frequently.
Also, if the humidity of the installed location is high or
during the rainy season or on a rainy day, condensation
can form on the outer side of the refrigerator. This is a
natural phenomenon that occurs during the humid
weather. Wipe the water drops with a dry cloth.
The front of the
refrigerator is warm
Heat pipes are installed around the front part of the
refrigerator and on the divider of the freezer and
refrigerator to prevent the condensation from forming.
The refrigerator may feel warmer just after installation or
during the hot summer, but this is not a problem.

PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT OF OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS LIMITED
WARRANTY OR THE PRODUCT SHALL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION,
AND NOT IN A COURT OF GENERAL JURISDICTION. BINDING ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU AND LG
ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc., its parents,
subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents, beneficiaries, predecessors in
interest, successors, assigns and suppliers; references to “dispute” or “claim” shall include any dispute, claim or
controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in contract, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud,
misrepresentation or any other legal or equitable theory) arising out of or relating in any way to the sale, condition
or performance of the product or this Limited Warranty.
Notice of Dispute. In the event you intend to commence an arbitration proceeding, you must first notify LG in
writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration by sending a letter to LG at LG Electronics, USA, Inc.
Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration 1000 Sylvan Ave, Englewood Cliffs 07632. You and LG agree to engage in
good faith discussions in an attempt to amicably resolve your claim. The notice must provide your name, address,
and telephone number; identify the product that is the subject of the claim; and describe the nature of the claim
and the relief being sought. If you and LG are unable to resolve the dispute within 30 days, either party may
proceed to file a claim for arbitration.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. Upon failure to resolve the dispute during the 30
day period after sending written notice to LG, you and LG agree to resolve any claims between us only by binding
arbitration on an individual basis, unless you opt out as provided below. Any dispute between you and LG shall not
be combined or consolidated with a dispute involving any other person’s or entity’s product or claim. More
specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, any dispute between you and LG shall not under any circumstances
proceed as part of a class or representative action. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an individual
action in small claims court, but that small claims court action may not be brought on a class or representative
basis.
Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To begin arbitration of a claim, either you or LG must make a written demand
for arbitration. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and will be
conducted before a single arbitrator under the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules that are in effect at the time the
arbitration is initiated (referred to as the “AAA Rules”) and under the procedures set forth in this section. The AAA
Rules are available online at www.adr.org/consumer. Send a copy of your written demand for arbitration, as well as
a copy of this provision, to the AAA in the manner described in the AAA Rules. You must also send a copy of your
written demand to LG at LG Electronics, USA, Inc. Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration 1000 Sylvan Avenue
Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in this section, the
rules set forth in this section will govern. This arbitration provision is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.
Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction. All issues are for the
arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision and to
the arbitrability of the dispute are for the court to decide. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this provision.
Governing Law. The law of the state of your residence shall govern this Limited Warranty and any disputes
between us except to the extent that such law is preempted by or inconsistent with applicable federal law.
Fees/Costs. You do not need to pay any fee to begin an arbitration. Upon receipt of your written demand for
arbitration, LG will promptly pay all arbitration filing fees to the AAA unless you seek more than $25,000 in
damages, in which case the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. Except as otherwise
provided for herein, LG will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in
accordance with the AAA Rules and this arbitration provision. If you prevail in the arbitration, LG will pay your
attorneys’ fees and expenses as long as they are reasonable, by considering factors including, but not limited to,
the purchase amount and claim amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if applicable law allows for an award of
reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, an arbitrator can award them to the same extent that a court would. If
the arbitrator finds either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is frivolous or brought for
an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the
payment of all arbitration fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such a situation, you agree to reimburse LG
for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Except as
otherwise provided for, LG waives any rights it may have to seek attorneys’ fees and expenses from you if LG
prevails in the arbitration.
Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted
solely on the basis of (1) documents submitted to the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic hearing, or (3) by an
in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a hearing will be
determined by the AAA Rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will be held at a location within the federal judicial
district in which you reside unless we both agree to another location or we agree to a telephonic arbitration.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you opt out, neither you nor LG can require the
other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must send notice to LG no later than 30 calendar
days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase of the product by either: (i) sending an e-mail to
optout@lge.com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out” or (ii) calling 1-800-980-2973. You must include in the
opt out e-mail or provide by telephone: (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which the product was
purchased; (c) the product model name or model number; and (d) the serial number (the serial number can be
found (i) on the product; or (ii) online by accessing https://www.lg.com/us/support/repair-service/schedule-repaircontinued and clicking on “Find My Model & Serial Number”).
You may only opt out of the dispute resolution procedure in the manner described above (that is, by e-mail or
telephone); no other form of notice will be effective to opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. Opting out of this
dispute resolution procedure will not affect the coverage of the Limited Warranty in any way, and you will continue
to enjoy the full benefits of the Limited Warranty. If you keep this product and do not opt out, then you accept all
terms and conditions of the arbitration provision described above.

PROCEDURE FOR RESOLVING DISPUTES:
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED AT LAW, ALL DISPUTES BETWEEN YOU AND LG ARISING OUT OF OR
RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THIS LIMITED WARRANTY OR THE PRODUCT SHALL BE RESOLVED
EXCLUSIVELY THROUGH BINDING ARBITRATION, AND NOT IN A COURT OF GENERAL JURISDICTION.
EXCEPT WHERE PROHIBITED AT LAW, YOU AND LG BOTH IRREVOCABLY AGREE TO WAIVE THE RIGHT
TO A JURY TRIAL AND TO BRING OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.
Definitions. For the purposes of this section, references to “LG” mean LG Electronics Canada, Inc., its parents,
subsidiaries and affiliates, and each of their officers, directors, employees, agents, beneficiaries, predecessors in
interest, successors, assigns and suppliers; references to “dispute” or “claim” shall include any dispute, claim or
controversy of any kind whatsoever (whether based in contract, tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, fraud,
misrepresentation or any other legal or equitable theory) arising out of or relating in any way to the sale, condition
or performance of the product or this Limited Warranty.
Notice of Dispute. In the event you intend to commence an arbitration proceeding, you must first notify LG in
writing at least 30 days in advance of initiating the arbitration by sending a letter to LG Electronics, Canada, Inc.,
Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration, 20 Norelco Drive, North York, Ontario M9L 2X6. You and LG agree to engage
in good faith discussions in an attempt to amicably resolve your claim. The notice must provide your name,
address, and telephone number; identify the product that is the subject of the claim; and describe the nature of the
claim and the relief being sought. If you and LG are unable to resolve the dispute within 30 days, either party may
proceed to file a claim for arbitration.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration and Class Action Waiver. Upon failure to resolve the dispute during the 30
day period after sending written notice to LG, you and LG agree to resolve any claims between you and LG only by
binding arbitration on an individual basis, unless you opt out as provided below, or you reside in a jurisdiction that
prevents full application of this clause in the circumstances of the claims at issue (in which case if you are a
consumer, this clause will only apply if you expressly agree to the arbitration). To the extent permitted by applicable
law, any dispute between you and LG shall not be combined or consolidated with a dispute involving any other
person’s or entity’s product or claim. More specifically, without limitation of the foregoing, except to the extent such
a prohibition is not permitted at law, any dispute between you and LG shall not under any circumstances proceed
as part of a class or representative action. Instead of arbitration, either party may bring an individual action in small
claims court, but that small claims court action may not be brought on a class or representative basis except to the
extent this prohibition is not permitted at law in your province or territory of jurisdiction as it relates to the claims at
issue between you and LG.
Arbitration Rules and Procedures. To begin arbitration of a claim, either you or LG must make a written demand
for arbitration. The arbitration will be private and confidential, and conducted on a simplified and expedited basis
before a single arbitrator chosen by the parties under the provincial or territorial commercial arbitration law and rules
of the province or territory of your residence. You must also send a copy of your written demand to LG at LG
Electronics, Canada, Inc., Attn: Legal Department- Arbitration, 20 Norelco Drive, North York, Ontario M9L 2X6. This
arbitration provision is governed by your applicable provincial or territorial commercial arbitration legislation.
Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award in any court of competent jurisdiction. All issues are for the
arbitrator to decide, except that, issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision and to the
arbitrability of the dispute are for the court to decide. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this provision.
Governing Law. The law of the province or territory of your residence shall govern this Limited Warranty and any
disputes between you and LG except to the extent that such law is preempted by or inconsistent with applicable
federal or provincial/territorial law. Should arbitration not be permitted for any claim, action, dispute or controversy
between you and LG, you and LG attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the province or territory of your
residence for the resolution of the claim, action, dispute or controversy between you and LG.
Fees/Costs. You do not need to pay any fee to begin an arbitration. Upon receipt of your written demand for
arbitration, LG will promptly pay all arbitration filing fees unless you seek more than $25,000 in damages, in which
case the payment of these fees will be governed by the applicable arbitration rules. Except as otherwise provided
for herein, LG will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the
applicable arbitration rules and this arbitration provision. If you prevail in the arbitration, LG will pay your attorneys’
fees and expenses as long as they are reasonable, by considering factors including, but not limited to, the
purchase amount and claim amount. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if applicable law allows for an award of
reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses, an arbitrator can award them to the same extent that a court would. If
the arbitrator finds either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the demand is frivolous or brought for
an improper purpose (as measured by the applicable laws), then the payment of all arbitration fees will be
governed by the applicable arbitration rules. In such a situation, you agree to reimburse LG for all monies
previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the applicable arbitration rules. Except as
otherwise provided for, LG waives any rights it may have to seek attorneys’ fees and expenses from you if LG
prevails in the arbitration.
Hearings and Location. If your claim is for $25,000 or less, you may choose to have the arbitration conducted
solely (1) on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, (2) through a telephonic hearing, or (3) by an
in-person hearing as established by the applicable arbitration rules. If your claim exceeds $25,000, the right to a
hearing will be determined by the applicable arbitration rules. Any in-person arbitration hearings will be held at the
nearest, most mutually-convenient arbitration location available within the province or territory in which you reside
unless you and LG both agree to another location or agree to a telephonic arbitration.
Severability and Waiver. If any portion of this Limited Warranty (including these arbitration procedures) is
unenforceable, the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect to the maximum extent permitted by
applicable law. Should LG fail to enforce strict performance of any provision of this Limited Warranty (including
these arbitration procedures), it does not mean that LG intends to waive or has waived any provision or part of this
Limited Warranty.
Opt Out. You may opt out of this dispute resolution procedure. If you opt out, neither you nor LG can require the
other to participate in an arbitration proceeding. To opt out, you must send notice to LG no later than 30 calendar
days from the date of the first consumer purchaser’s purchase of the product by either (i) sending an e-mail to
optout@lge.com, with the subject line: “Arbitration Opt Out;” or (ii) calling 1-800-980-2973. You must include in the
opt out e-mail or provide by telephone: (a) your name and address; (b) the date on which the product was
purchased; (c) the product model name or model number; and
(d) the serial number (the serial number can be found (i) on the product; or (ii) online by accessing https://www.
lg.com/ca_en/support/repair-service/schedule-repair and clicking on “Find My Model & Serial Number”).
In the event that you “Opt Out”, the law of the province or territory of your residence shall govern this Limited
Warranty and any disputes between you and LG except to the extent that such law is preempted by or inconsistent
with applicable federal or provincial/territorial law. Should arbitration not be permitted for any claim, action, dispute
or controversy between you and LG, you and LG agree to attorn to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the
province or territory of your residence for the resolution of the claim, action, dispute or controversy between you
and LG.
You may only opt out of the dispute resolution procedure in the manner described above (that is, by e-mail or
