OPERATION
Before Use
Notes for Operation
•• Users should keep in mind that frost can form
if the door is not closed completely or if the
humidity is high during the summer.
•• 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
mould from growing in the appliance.
Door Open Alarm
The alarm sounds 3 times in 30 second intervals
if the door is left open or not completely closed for
1 minute.
•• Contact the LG Electronics customer
information centre if the alarm sound continues
even after closing the door.
Failure Detection
The appliance can automatically detect problems
during the operation.
•• If a problem is detected, the appliance may not
operate and an error code is displayed even
when any button is pressed.
•• If an error code is indicated on the display, do
not turn off the power. Immediately contact the
LG Electronics customer information centre
and report the error code. If you turn off the
power, the repair technician from the our
information centre may have difficulty finding
the problem.
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.
14
EN
•• When storing food in the freezer compartment,
set the freezer temperature lower than the
temperature indicated on the food.
•• Do not set the temperature of the appliance
lower than needed.
•• 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 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.
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 4 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.
•• Store raw meat and fish in suitable containers
in the refrigerator, so that it is not in contact
with or drip onto other food.
•• Refrigerated foods and other food items can be
stored on top of the vegetable box.
•• Avoid refreezing any food which has been
completely thawed. Freezing any food which
has been completely thawed again will lower its
taste and nutrition.
•• Cool hot food before storing. If too much hot
food is placed inside, the internal temperature
of the appliance can increase and negatively
affect other foods stored in the appliance.
•• 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.
EN
•• 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.
•• In the event of a blackout, call the electricity
company and ask how long it is going to last.
−− You should avoid door openings while the
power is off.
−− When the power supply gets back to normal,
check the condition of the food.
Max Freezing Capacity
•• Express Freeze function will allow the freezer
to reach its maximum freezing capacity.
This generally takes up to 24 hours and
automatically switches off.
•• Express Freeze must be switched on for 2
hours before fresh products are placed in the
freezer compartment.
•• To get better air circulation, insert all inner
parts like baskets and shelves.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
General Cleaning Tips
•• When cleaning the inside or outside of the
appliance, do not wipe it with a rough brush,
toothpaste, or flammable materials. Do not
use cleaning agents containing flammable
substances. This may cause discolouration or
damage to the appliance.
−− Flammable substances: alcohol (ethanol,
methanol, isopropyl alcohol, isobutyl alcohol,
etc.), thinner, bleach, benzene, flammable
liquid, abrasive, etc.
•• After cleaning, check if the power cable is
damaged.
Cleaning the Exterior
•• When cleaning the outside air vents of the
appliance by means of vacuuming, then the
power cord should be unplugged from the
outlet to avoid any static discharge that can
damage the electronics or cause an electric
shock Regular cleaning of the rear and side
ventilation covers is recommended to maintain
reliable and economical operation of the unit.
•• Keep the air vents on the exterior of the
appliance clean. Blocked air vents can cause
fire or appliance damage.
•• Waxing external painted metal surfaces helps
provide rust protection. Do not wax plastic
parts. Wax painted metal surfaces at least
twice a year using appliance wax (or auto paste
wax). Apply wax with a clean, soft cloth.
•• For the appliance exterior, use a clean sponge
or soft cloth and a mild detergent in warm
water. Do not use abrasive or harsh cleaners.
Dry thoroughly with a soft cloth. Do not use
contaminated cloths when cleaning the
stainless steel doors. Always use a dedicated
cloth and wipe in the same direction as the
grain. This helps reduce surface staining and
tarnishing.
EN
Cleaning the Interior
•• When removing a shelf or drawer from inside
the appliance, remove all stored foods from the
shelf or drawer to prevent injury or damage to
the appliance. Otherwise, injury may occur due
to the weight of stored foods.
