Risk of Fire and Flammable Materials
This symbol alerts you to flammable materials that can
ignite and cause a fire if you do not take care.
•• This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane refrigerant
(R600a), but it is also combustible. When transporting and installing
the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the
refrigerating circuit are damaged.
•• If a leak is detected, avoid any naked flames or potential sources
of ignition and air the room in which the appliance is standing for
several minutes. In order to avoid the creation of a flammable gas
air mixture if a leak in the refrigerating circuit occurs, the size of the
room in which the appliance is used should correspond to the amount
of refrigerant used. The room must be 1 m² in size for every 8 g of
R600a refrigerant inside the appliance.
•• When positioning the appliance, ensure the supply cord is not
trapped or damaged.

17
EN
Notes for Operation
•• Users should keep in mind that frost can form. If
the door is not closed completely, if the humidity
is high during the summer, or if the freezer door
is opened frequently.
•• Ensure there is sufficient space between food
stored on the shelf or door basket to allow the
door to close completely.
•• Opening the door lets warm air enter the
appliance, and may cause the internal
temperature to rise.
•• If you are leaving the appliance turned off for an
extended period of time, remove all food and
unplug the power cord. Clean the interior, and
leave the doors slightly ajar to prevent mold
from growing in the appliance.
Suggestion for Energy Saving
•• Ensure there is sufficient space between stored
foods. This allows cold air to be circulated
evenly and lowers electricity bills.
•• Store hot food only after it has cooled in order to
prevent dew or frost.
•• When storing food in the freezer compartment,
set the freezer temperature lower than the
temperature indicated on the food.
•• Do not put food near the temperature sensor of
the fridge compartment. Keep a distance of at
least 3 cm from the sensor.
•• Note that a temperature rise after defrosting
has a permissible range in the appliance
specifications. If you wish to minimise the
impact this may have on the food storage due to
a temperature rise, seal or wrap the stored food
in several layers.
•• The automatic defrosting system in the
appliance ensures that the compartment
remains free of ice buildup under normal
operating conditions.
18
Storing Foods Effectively
•• Store frozen food or refrigerated food inside
sealed containers.
•• Check the expiration date and label (storage
instructions) before storing food in the
appliance.
•• Do not store food for a long period of time
(more than four weeks) if it spoils easily at a low
temperature.
•• Place the refrigerated food or frozen food in
each fridge or freezer compartment immediately
after purchasing.
•• Avoid refreezing any food which has been
completely thawed. Freezing any food which
has been completely thawed again will lower its
taste and nutrition.
•• Do not wrap and store vegetables with
newspaper. Printing material of newspaper
or other foreign substances may smear and
contaminate food.
•• Do not overfill the appliance. Cold air can not
circulate properly if the appliance is overfilled.
•• If you set an excessively low temperature
for food, it may become frozen. Do not
set a temperature lower than the required
temperature for the food to be stored correctly.
•• If there are chill compartments in the appliance,
do not store vegetables and fruits with higher
moisture content in the chill compartments as
they may freeze due to the lower temperature.
EN
Max Freezing Capacity
•• The Express Freeze function will set the freezer
to its maximum freezing capacity.
•• This generally takes up to 24 hours and
automatically switches off.
•• If the maximum freezing capacity is to be used,
Express Freeze must be switched on for seven
hours before fresh produce is placed in the
freezer compartment.
Maximum Storage
•• To get better air circulation, insert all drawers.
•• If large quantities of food are to be stored, all
the freezer drawers shall be taken out of the
appliance except the bottom one and the food
shall be stacked directly on the freezer shelves
in the freezer compartment.
NOTE
•• To remove the drawers, first pick the food out of
drawers. Then use the handle of drawers, pull
out the drawers carefully. It may cause injury.
•• The shape of each drawer may be different,
insert in the right position.

SMART FUNCTIONS
Using LG SmartThinQ
Application
•• For appliances with the a or b logo
The LG SmartThinQ application allows you
to communicate with the appliance using a
smartphone.
Before Using LG SmartThinQ
1
Check the distance between the appliance
and the wireless router (Wi-Fi network).
•• If the distance between the appliance and
the wireless router is too far, the signal
strength becomes weak. It may take a long
time to register or installation may fail.
2
Turn off the Mobile data or Cellular Data on
your smartphone.
3
Connect your smartphone to the wireless
router.
EN
•• If the appliance is having trouble connecting
to the Wi-Fi network, it may be too far from
the router. Purchase a Wi-Fi repeater (range
extender) to improve the Wi-Fi signal strength.
•• The Wi-Fi connection may not connect or may
be interrupted because of the home network
environment.
•• The network connection may not work properly
depending on the Internet service provider.
•• The surrounding wireless environment can
make the wireless network service run slowly.
•• The appliance cannot be registered due to
problems with the wireless signal transmission.
Unplug the appliance and wait about a minute
before trying again.
•• If the firewall on your wireless router is enabled,
disable the firewall or add an exception to it.
•• The wireless network name (SSID) should be a
combination of English letters and numbers. (Do
not use special characters.)
•• Smartphone user interface (UI) may vary
depending on the mobile operating system (OS)
and the manufacturer.
•• If the security protocol of the router is set to
WEP, you may fail to set up the network. Please
change it to other security protocols (WPA2 is
