Installation
•• This appliance should only be transported by two or more people
holding the appliance securely.
•• Ensure that the socket outlet is properly grounded, and that the earth
pin on the power cord is not damaged or removed from the power
plug. For more details on grounding, inquire at an LG Electronics
customer information centre.
•• This appliance is equipped with a power cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding power plug. The power plug
must be plugged into an appropriate socket outlet that is installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
•• If the power cord is damaged or the hole of the socket outlet is loose,
do not use the power cord and contact an authorized service centre.
•• Do not plug the appliance into a multi socket adapter which does not
have a power cable (mounted).
•• Do not modify or extend the power cable.
•• The appliance should be connected to a dedicated power line which
is separately fused.
•• Do not use a multi socket outlet which is not properly grounded
(portable). In case of using a properly-grounded multi socket outlet
(portable), use the multi socket outlet with the current capacity of the
power code rating or higher and use the multi socket outlet only for

(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.

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.
18
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.
EN
Storing Foods Effectively
Max Freezing Capacity
•• 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.
•• 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.

MAINTENANCE
Notes for Cleaning
•• 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.
•• If 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.
•• Detach the shelves and drawers and clean them
with water, and then dry them sufficiently, before
replacing them.
•• Regularly wipe the door gaskets with a wet soft
towel.
•• Door basket spills and stains should be cleaned
as they can compromise storage ability of the
basket and could even be damaged.
•• After cleaning, check if the power cable is
damaged, warm or improperly plugged.
•• Keep the air vents on the exterior of the
appliance clean.
EN
•• 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

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

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?
