your Electricity Company and
12_ Safety information
DA68-02916A (EN)-15.indd 12
2019. 7. 10. �� 2:26
ask how long it is going to
last.
-- Most power failures that are
corrected within an hour
or two will not affect your
refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should
minimize the number of door
openings while the power is
off.
-- Should the power failure last
more than 24 hours, remove
all frozen food.
• If keys are provided with the
refrigerator, the keys should
be kept out of the reach of
children and not be in the
vicinity of the appliance.
• The appliance might
not operate consistently
(possibility of temperature
becoming too warm in the
refrigerator) when sited
for an extended period of
time below the cold end of
the range of temperature
for which the refrigerating
appliance is designed.
• Do not store food which
spoils easily at low
temperature, such as
bananas, melons.
• Your appliance is frost free,
which means there is no
need to manually defrost
your appliance, as this will be
carried out automatically.
• Temperature rise during
defrosting can comply with
ISO requirements. But if you
want to prevent an undue
rise in the temperature of the
frozen food while defrosting
the appliance, please wrap
the frozen food up in several
layers of newspaper.
• Any increase in temperature

(radiator, for example).
-- Never block any vents or grilles
on the appliance.
-- Allow warm food to cool
down before placing it in the
appliance.
-- Put frozen food in the
refrigerator to thaw. You can
then use the low temperatures
of the frozen products to cool
food in the refrigerator.
Safety information _13
DA68-02916A (EN)-15.indd 13
2019. 7. 10. �� 2:26
-- Do not keep the door of the
appliance open for too long
when putting food in or taking
food out. The shorter time for
which the door is open, the
less ice will form in the freezer.
-- Clean the rear of the refrigerator
regularly. Dust increases energy
consumption.
-- Do not set temperature colder
than necessary.
-- Ensure sufficient air exhaust at
the refrigerator base and at the
back wall of the refrigerator.
Do not cover air vent openings.
-- Allow clearance to the right, left,
back and top when installing.

consumption and keep your
energy bills lower.
-- For the most efficient use
of energy, please keep the
all inner fittings such as
baskets, drawers, shelves
on the position supplied by
manufacturer.
This appliance is intended
to be used in household and
similar applications such as
-- staff kitchen areas in shops,
offices and other working
environments;

system.
Make sure the refrigerator is level so that you can
make final adjustments. Use a level to test if the
refrigerator is level both side to side and back to
front. If the refrigerator is not level, you will not
be able to get the doors perfectly even, which
may cause moisture condensation and increased
energy bills. Below is an example of how to level

Connecting to the water supply line
1. First, shut off the main water supply line.
2. Locate the nearest cold, drinking water line.
3. Follow the Water line Installation Instructions in
the installation kit.
CAUTION
A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful
features on your new refrigerator. To help promote
better health, the water filter removes unwanted
particles from your water. However, it does not sterilize
or destroy microorganisms. You may need to purchase
a water purifying system to do that.
In order for the ice maker to operate properly, a water
pressure of 20~125 psi is required.
Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) cup can
be filled in about 10 seconds.
If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water
pressure (below 20psi), you can install a booster pump
to compensate for the low pressure.
After you have connected the water line, make sure
the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly
filled. To do this, press the water dispenser lever until
the water runs from the water outlet.
Water line installation kits are include with
unit. You can find it in freezer drawer.
The new hose-sets supplied with the
appliance are to be used and that old
hose-sets should not be reused.

CHANGING THE WATER
FILTER
To reduce the risk water damage to
your property DO NOT use generic
brands of water filters in your SAMSUNG
Refrigerator.
USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND
WATER FILTERS. SAMSUNG is not
legally responsible for any damage,
including, but not limited to, property
damage caused by water leakage
(Red)
from the use of a generic water filter.
SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work
ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filters.
The Filter light turns red to let you know when it is
time to change your water filter cartridge.
To give you time to get a new filter, the red light
comes on just before the capacity of the current
filter runs out. Changing the filter on time provides
you with the freshest, cleanest water from your
refrigerator.
WARNING
To change the water filter, follow these steps:
1. Shut off the water supply. Then, turn the water
filter ( 1 ) about 1/4 turn, counter-clockwise.
2
1
2. Pull the water filter ( 1 ) from the case filter ( 2 ).
• To change the water filter more easily,
shut off the water supply valve.
• Sometimes, it is hard to disassemble the water
filter because impurities in the water cause it
to stick. If you are having difficulties, grip the
water filter firmly and pull it hard.
• When you pull the water filter, a little water
can leak from the opening. This is normal.
To minimize the water leaks, keep the filter
cartridge horizontal when you pull it.

3. Additional flushing may be required in some
households.
4. Open the Refrigerator door and make sure
there are no water leaks coming from the
water filter.
If you have questions about your water pressure,
call a licensed, qualified plumber.
CONTROLLING THE
TEMPERATURE
Basic temperature of Freezer and
fridge compartments
The basic and recommended temperatures of the
Freezer and Fridge compartments are -19 °C and
3 °C respectively.
If the temperature of the Freezer and Fridge
compartments are too high or low, adjust the
temperature manually.
Controlling the Freezer
temperature
Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly,
otherwise water may drip from the
dispenser.
This means that there is still air in the line.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT:
The pressure of the water supply coming out of a
reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet
valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 35
and 120 psi (241 and 827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs to
be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa). If
the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system
is less than 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
Recommend Temp (Freezer) : -19 °C
The Freezer temperature can be set between
-23 °C and -15 °C to suit your particular needs.
Press the Freezer button repeatedly until the
desired temperature is shown in the temperature
display. The temperature will change by 1 °C with
each press. See below.
Centigrade : -19 °C ➞ -20 °C ➞ -21 °C ➞ -22 °C
➞ -23 °C ➞ -15 °C ➞ -16 °C ➞ -17 °C ➞ -18 °C
➞-19 °C.
Keep in mind that foods like ice cream may melt
at -15.5 °C. The temperature display will move
sequentially from -23 °C to -15 °C.
• Check to see whether the sediment filter in the
reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace
the filter if necessary.
• Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis
system to refill after heavy usage.
• If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may
further reduce the water pressure when used
in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system.
Remove the water filter.

Maintaining the Ice Bucket
• To clean the ice bin/bucket, wash with a mild
detergent, rinse well, and dry thoroughly it. Do
not use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.
• Ice is made in cubes. When you select
“Crushed”, the ice maker grinds the ice cubes
into crushed ice.
• When you select Cubed Ice after using the
Crushed Ice mode, a small amount of residual
crushed ice might be produced.
• The ice cubes generated by the rapid ice
making process will look white, which indicates
they were generated normally.
• As the ice maker in the refrigerator room
makes ice cubes even faster, move the ice
cubes from the refrigerator ice bin to the
freezer ice bin if you need more ice cubes.
• If ice doesn’t come out, pull out the ice bucket
and press the test button located on the right
side of ice maker. See the illustration below.
• Do not press the test button continuously
when the tray is filled with ice or water. Water
may overflow or ice may jam the bucket.
Making Ice
• To fill the ice bucket to maximum capacity after
installation, follow these steps:
1. Allow your refrigerator to operate and cool
down for 24 hours (or 1 full day).
-- Waiting 24 hours will allow your ice maker to
cool properly.

CAUTION
If you want to remove the ice cubes
without using the ice bucket, please turn
the ice maker off and remove the ice
maker’s front cover from the ice maker.
Note that the ice cubes in the ice maker
can spill out over the drawer.
Do not put food in the ice bucket.
If you store food in the ice bucket, the
food can strike the ice maker when you
open or close the door, causing damage
to the ice maker.
Note that the ice cubes in the ice bucket
may spill out over the drawer when you
remove the ice bucket from the drawer.
If this occurs, be sure to clear the ice
cubes that spilled out of the drawer.
If a power failure occurs, ice cubes may
melt, and then freeze together when
the power comes back on, causing the
dispenser to stop working.
To prevent this problem, after a power failure, pull
out the ice bucket and discard the residual ice or
water.
If you use all the ice at once, you must
repeat ice making Steps 2 and 3, left.
However, only wait 8 hours before
dispensing the first 4 to 6 ice cubes. This
will replenish the ice cubes and ensure
maximum ice production.

through the core filter which is an alkaline
water filter. In the filtering process, the
pressure of the water that has flowed out
of the filter is increased, and the water
becomes saturated with oxygen and
nitrogen. When this water flows out into
the air, the pressure plummets and the
oxygen and nitrogen get supersaturated,
which results in gas bubbles. The water
may temporarily look misty or cloudy due
to these oxygen bubbles. After a few
seconds, the water will look clear.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The refrigerator
does not work
at all or it
does not chill
sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Check if the set temperature on the digital display is warmer than the
freezer or fridge inner temperature. If it is, set the refrigerator colder.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper
ventilation?
The food in the
fridge is frozen.
•
•
•
•
You hear
unusual noise
or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper
ventilation?
Try moving the back of the refrigerator at least 2 inches from the wall.
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. It is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding
according to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
• If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator,
this is normal. The sound is caused by the compressor operating at high
capacity.
The cabinetdoor sealing
area of the
appliance
is hot and
condensation is
occurring.
Ice Maker is not
producing ice.
You can
hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
There is a bad
smell in the
refrigerator.
Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low.
Try setting the refrigerator to a warmer temperature.
Is the temperature in the room too low? Set the refrigerator warmer.
Did you store the food which is juicy in the coldest part of the refrigerator?
Try moving those items to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping
them in the colder areas or bins.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical
hinged section of the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the
door open for a long time.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installing the water supply line before making
ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature
lower.
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from refrigerant circulating through the
refrigerator.
• Check for spoiled food.
• Foods with strong odors (for example, fish) should be tightly covered.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or
suspicious food.

2019. 7. 10. �� 2:27
SOLUTION
Frost forms on
the walls of the
freezer.
• Is the air vent blocked? Remove any obstructions so air can circulate freely.
• Allow sufficient space between the stored foods for efficient air circulation.
• Is the freezer drawer closed properly?
Water
dispenser is not
functioning.
•
•
•
•
Auto close
system does
not work with
the freezer
door.
• Is there an imbalance between the right and left parts of the door?
• Open and close the door smoothly 1~2 times. After you do this, the auto
close system usually works properly again.
• Try opening the door smoothly to avoid unbalancing the right part and the
left part of the door.
Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened?
Has the water supply line tubing been crushed or kinked?
Make sure the tubing is free and clear of any obstruction.
Is the water tank frozen because the fridge temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the Digital display.
• Is the Child Lock on?
