HOW TO USE 31 In-Door Ice Bin 2 Caution To remove the in-door ice bin, grip the front handle, slightly lift the lower part, and slowly pull out the bin as shown. yy Keep hands and tools out of the ice compartment door and dispenser chute. Failure to do so may result in damage or personal injury. yy The icemaker will stop producing ice when the in-door ice bin is full. If you need more ice, empty the ice bin into the extra ice bin in the freezer compartment. During use, the ice can become uneven causing the icemaker to misread the amount of ice cubes and stop producing ice. Shaking the ice bin to level the ice within it can reduce this problem. yy Storing cans or other items in the ice bin will damage the icemaker. yy Keep the ice compartment door closed tightly. If the ice compartment door is not closed tightly, the cold air in the ice bin will freeze food in the refrigerator compartment. This could also cause the icemaker to stop producing ice. yy If the On/Off switch on the icemaker is set to Off for an extended period of time, the ice compartment will gradually warm up to the temperature of the refrigerator compartment. To prevent ice cubes from melting and leaking from the dispenser, ALWAYS empty the ice bin when the icemaker is set to Off for more than a few hours. Detaching the In-Door Ice Bin 1 Assembling the In-Door Ice Bin 1 Carefully insert the in-door ice bin while slightly slanting it to avoid contact with the icemaker. 2 Avoid touching the ice-detecting sensor when replacing the ice bin. See the label on the ice compartment door for details. Ice-detecting sensor Gently pull the handle to open the ice compartment. Caution When handling the ice bin, keep hands away from the icemaker tray area to avoid personal injury. ENGLISH * Depending on the model, some of the following functions may not be available. 32 HOW TO USE Automatic Icemaker ENGLISH Water fills the ice tray. * Depending on the model, some of the following functions may not be available. Ice is made in the automatic icemaker and sent to the dispenser. The icemaker will produce 70~182 cubes in a 24-hour period, depending on freezer compartment temperature, room temperature, number of door openings and other operating conditions. 1 hour after supplying water yy It takes about 12 to 24 hours for a newly installed refrigerator to begin making ice. Wait 72 hours for full ice production to occur. yy Ice making stops when the in-door ice bin is full. When full, the in-door ice bin holds approximately 6 to 8 (12~16 oz or 340~455 cc) glasses of ice. yy The water pressure must be 20~120 psi or 138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm² on models without a water filter and 40~120 psi or 276~827 kPa or 2.8~8.4 kgf/cm² on models with a water filter to produce the normal amount and size of ice cubes. Tilting yy 60 minutes after water has been added to the ice tray, the ice tray will sit slightly tilted to help the cold air reach the ice. yy Foreign substances or frost on the icedetecting sensor can interrupt ice production. Make sure the sensor area is clean at all times for proper operation. Warning Personal Injury Hazard DO NOT place fingers or hands on the automatic ice making mechanism while the refrigerator is plugged in. Icemaker Power Switch Ice-detecting Sensor yy The ice-detecting sensors will sense when the ice is ready to be dumped into the ice bin. Turning the Automatic Icemaker On or Off To turn off the automatic icemaker, set the icemaker switch to OFF (O). To turn on the automatic icemaker, set the switch to ON (I). HOW TO USE 33 Caution yy The first ice and water dispensed may include particles or odor from the water supply line or the water tank. yy Throw away the first few batches of ice. This is also necessary if the refrigerator has not been used for a long time. yy Never store beverage cans or other items in the ice bin for the purpose of rapid cooling. Doing so may damage the icemaker or the containers may burst. yy If discolored ice is dispensed, check the water filter and water supply. If the problem continues, contact a qualified service center. Do not use the ice or water until the problem is corrected. yy Keep children away from the dispenser. Children may play with or damage the controls. yy 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 can also help prevent frost buildup. yy Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect ice. Such containers may chip or break resulting in glass fragments in the ice. yy 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. yy Never use a glass that is exceptionally narrow or deep. Ice may jam in the ice passage and refrigerator performance may be affected. yy Keep the glass at a proper distance from the ice outlet. A glass held too close to the outlet may prevent ice from dispensing. yy To avoid personal injury, keep hands out of the ice door and passage. yy Never remove the dispenser cover. yy If ice or water dispenses unexpectedly, turn off the water supply and contact a qualified service center. When You Should Turn the Icemaker Off yy When the water supply will be shut off for several hours. yy When the ice bin is removed for more than one or two minutes. yy When the refrigerator will not be used for several days. Note The ice bin should be emptied when the icemaker on/off switch is turned to the OFF position. Normal Sounds You May Hear yy The icemaker water valve will buzz as the icemaker fills with water. If the power switch is in the ON (I) position, it will buzz even if it has not yet been hooked up to water. To stop the buzzing, move the power switch to OFF (O). Note Keeping the power switch in the ON (I) position before the water line is connected can damage the icemaker. yy You will hear the sound of cubes dropping into the bin and water running in the pipes as the icemaker refills. Preparing for Vacation Set the icemaker power switch to OFF (O) and shut off the water supply to the refrigerator. Note The ice bin should be emptied anytime the icemaker on/off switch is turned to the OFF (O) position. If the ambient temperature is expected to drop below freezing, have a qualified technician drain the water supply system to prevent serious property damage due to flooding caused by ruptured water lines or connections.

HOW TO USE 35 Storing Food Each compartment inside the refrigerator is designed to store different types of food. Store your food in the optimal space to enjoy the freshest taste. Vegetable storage (Crisper) Preserves vegetables and fruit. EasyReach™ You can store small items, or put an item to defrost. ® Durabase Largest storage space in the freezer. Dairy Product Bin Adjustable refrigerator shelf Adjustable shelves to meet your individual storage needs. Modular door bin Store drinks such as juice and soda, as well as condiments, salad dressings and other food items. CustomChill™ Drawer Adjust the temperature to store meat and seafood, cold drinks, deli snacks, or chilled wine. Caution yy Do not store food with high moisture content towards the top of the refrigerator. The moisture could come in direct contact with the cold air and freeze. yy Wash food before storing it in the refrigerator. Vegetables and fruit should be washed, and food packaging should be wiped down to prevent adjacent foods from being contaminated. yy If the refrigerator is kept in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of vegetables in the refrigerator may cause condensation to form. Wipe off the condensation with a clean cloth or a paper towel. yy If the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is opened too often, warm air may penetrate the refrigerator and raise its temperature. It can also increase the cost to run the appliance. yy The temperature inside the EasyReach™ is slightly lower than in the shelf or door bin area. Note yy If you are leaving home for a short period of time, like a short vacation, the refrigerator should be left on. Refrigerated foods that are able to be frozen will stay preserved longer if stored in the freezer. yy If you are leaving the refrigerator turned off for an extended period of time, remove all food and unplug the power cord. Clean the interior, and leave the door open to prevent fungi from growing in the refrigerator. ENGLISH Food Preservation Location 36 HOW TO USE Food Storage Tips ENGLISH * The following tips may not be applicable depending on the model. Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator. For dated products, check date code to ensure freshness. Food How to Butter or Margarine Keep opened butter in a covered dish or closed compartment. When storing an extra supply, wrap in freezer packaging and freeze. Cheese Store in the original wrapping until you are ready to use it. Once opened, rewrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Milk Wipe milk cartons. For coldest milk, place containers on interior shelf. Eggs Store in original carton on interior shelf, not on door shelf. Fruit Do not wash or hull the fruit until it is ready to be used. Sort and keep fruit in its original container, in a crisper, or store in a completely closed paper bag on a refrigerator shelf. Leafy Vegetables Remove store wrapping and trim or tear off bruised and discolored areas. Wash in cold water and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic container and store in crisper. Vegetables with skins (carrots, peppers) Place in plastic bags or plastic container and store in crisper. Fish Store fresh fish and shellfish in the freezer section if they are not being consumed the same day of purchase. It is recommended to consume fresh fish and shellfish the same day purchased. Leftovers Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or store in plastic containers with tight lids. Storing Frozen Food Note Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook for further information about preparing food for freezing or food storage times. Freezing Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 lbs. of food per cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough space in the freezer for air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave enough room at the front so the door can close tightly. Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are normal. This simply means that moisture in the food and air inside the package have condensed, creating ice crystals. Note Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then package and freeze. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy. HOW TO USE 37 Humidity Controlled Crisper Packaging * Depending on the model, some of the following functions may not be available. Successful freezing depends on correct packaging. When you close and seal the package, it must not allow air or moisture in or out. If it does, you could have food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and could also dry out frozen food. Packaging recommendations: yy Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting lids yy Straight-sided canning/freezing jars yy Heavy-duty aluminum foil yy Plastic-coated paper The crispers provide fresher tasting fruit and vegetables by letting you easily control humidity inside the drawer. You can control the amount of humidity in the moisture-sealed crispers by adjusting the control to any setting between Vegetable and Fruit. yy Vegetable keeps moist air in the crisper for best storage of fresh, leafy vegetables. yy Fruit lets moist air out of the crisper for best storage of fruit. yy Non-permeable plastic wraps yy Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic bags Follow package or container instructions for proper freezing methods. Do not use Fruit Vegetable Vegetable Fruit yy Bread wrappers yy Non-polyethylene plastic containers yy Containers without tight lids yy Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap yy Thin, semi-permeable wrap EasyReach™ The EasyReach™ compartments are slightly cooler than the shelf or door bin areas, so they are a convenient place to store dairy snacks or other small items you want to keep especially cold. They are also a handy place to defrost meat. Open and close by pulling the handle. ENGLISH Storing Frozen Food (continued) 38 HOW TO USE ENGLISH Detaching and Assembling the Storage Bins Humidity Controlled Crisper To Remove the Glass (Pantry drawer not shown for clarity) Lift up the glass under the crisper cover, and pull up and out.
