necessary if the appliance has not been used
for a long time.
NOTE
•• If you open the freezer door while water is being
dispensed, the water supply will stop and the
control panel will return to the initial screen.
•• If you open the fridge door while water,
cubed ice or crushed ice is being dispensed,
dispensing will be paused. When you close the
door, the selected item for the previously set
mode will continue to be dispensed.
•• If the cup rim is small, water may splash out of
the glass or miss it completely.
•• Use a cup with a rim of over 68 mm in diameter
when dispensing water, cubed ice or crushed
ice.
•• When the ice maker produces smaller ice
cubes, or the cubes become lumped together,
the amount of water supplied to the ice maker
may be low due to insufficient water in the water
tank. If ice is not used frequently, it may also
lump together.
Automatic Icemaker
The automatic icemaker can automatically make
6 cubes at a time, 50-60 pieces within a 24hr
period if conditions are favorable. This amount
may vary according to the environment (ambient
temperature around the appliance, frequency of
the door being opened, amount of food stored in
the appliance, etc.).
•• If the ice bin is completely filled with ice, ice
production will stop.
•• While the automatic icemaker is operating, do
not touch it with your hands directly.
•• If ice cubes are stored in the ice bin for a long
period of time, they may clump together and
may not be separated easily. In such a case,
clean the ice bin before using it.
•• Discard ice produced for the first time without
using it.
•• While the automatic icemaker is operating, do
not touch it with your hands directly.
•• If ice cubes are stored in the ice bin for a long
period of time, they may clump together and
may not be separated easily. In such a case,
clean the ice bin before using it.

•• If the ice bin is completely filled with ice, it may
be heavy. Remove it using both hands.
WARNING
•• Do not touch the automatic icemaker
mechanical parts with your hand or a tool.
Otherwise, appliance damage or injury may
occur.
•• Caution should be taken, as the automatic
icemaker operates continuously after the freezer
door is opened when the automatic icemaker
switch is set to the on position.
•• Do not disassemble, repair or alter the
automatic ice maker. These tasks should only
be done by a service technician.
CAUTION
•• Throw away the first few batches of ice (about
20 cubes and 7 cups of water). This is also
necessary if the appliance has not been used
for a long time.
28
•• The first ice and water dispensed may include
particles or odor from the water supply line or
the water tank.
•• Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may play with or damage the controls.
•• The ice passage may become blocked with
frost if only crushed ice is used. Remove the
frost that accumulates by removing the ice bin
and clearing the passage with a rubber spatula.
Dispensing cubed ice periodically can also help
prevent frost buildup.
•• If discolored ice is dispensed, check the water
tank and the water supply for a possible
source. If the problem continues, contact the
LG Electronics customer information centre.
Do not use the ice or water until the problem is
corrected.
•• Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to
collect ice. Such containers may chip or break
resulting in glass fragments in the ice.
•• Dispense ice into a glass before filling it with
water or other beverages. Splashing may occur
if ice is dispensed into a glass that already
contains liquid.
•• Do not touch the ice outlet or the automatic
icemaker with your hand or a tool. Otherwise,
appliance damage or injury may occur.
•• When refitting the ice bin, ensure it is placed
correctly. If it is tilted or unleveled, it may not
continue to make ice due to sensor disruption.
•• Never use a glass that is exceptionally narrow
or deep. Ice may jam in the ice passage and
appliance performance may be affected.
•• Keep the glass at a proper distance from the ice
outlet. A glass held too close to the outlet may
prevent ice from dispensing.
•• Dispose of the ice inside the ice bin in the
freezer compartment if you go out on vacation
or an extended power outage occurs. Water
from melting ice may drop from the dispenser
onto the floor.

door frequently?
•• If you open the appliance door frequently, cold air
will escape, lowering the speed of ice production.
Do not open and close the appliance door
frequently.
Is the appliance door
completely closed?
•• If the appliance door is not completely closed,
the temperature of the freezer compartment will
increase, slowing down the ice production speed.
Close the appliance door completely.

Symptoms
Ice is not dispensed.
Water does not come
out.
Reason
•• In the control panel, select the modes for cubed
ice and crushed ice alternately to dispense the
ice.
Is the ice path
blocked? (You can
check the ice passage
by separating the ice
bin.)
•• Ice may not be dispensed properly if the ice
passage is blocked. Check the ice and clean the
ice path regularly.
Are you using
unfiltered water?
•• Unfiltered water can contain a large amount of
various heavy metals or foreign substances,
so the filter may be clogged in the early stage
regardless of the life of the filter.
The water dispenser
tank may be empty?
(For non plumbed
models only)
•• Fill the water dispenser tank.
Water does not come
out when the water
tube is filled with air.
(For non plumbed
models only)
•• Remove the water dispenser tank by pulling it out
while holding the handle. Fill the water dispenser
tank with water and refit it on the fridge shelf.
Is the water supply
valve closed? (For
plumbed models only)
•• Open the water supply valve.
Is the taste of water
different when
comparing it with the
taste of water from
the previous water
purifier?
•• Has the purified water or cold water not been
used for an extended period of time?
Has it been a long time
since you installed and
replaced the filter?
•• If an expired filter is used, the purification
performance may decline. It is recommended
to replace the filter according to the filter
replacement period.
Have you flushed out
the filter properly in
the initial stage after
installing it?
•• When you install or replace the filter for the
first time, you need to remove air and activated
carbon residue from inside the filter. Use the
appliance after dispensing and discharging
approximately 5 litres of purified water from the
dispenser by pressing the water dispensing lever.
(Activated carbon is harmless to humans.)
Has the purified water
or cold water not been
used for an extended
period of time?
•• The taste of old water may change due
to bacterial growth. Use the product after
dispensing and discharging approximately 5 litres
(approximately three minutes) from the water
dispenser.
Water tastes strange.
