Food Storage Tips

Wash foods before storing.

Divide and separate foods into smaller pieces.

Place watery foods or foods with much moisture in front of shelves (close to door side).

If they are placed close to the cold air spout, they can be frozen.

Warm or hot foods should be cooled down enough before storing to reduce power consumption and to enhance refrigeration performance.

Be careful in storing such tropical fruit as bananas, pineapples, tomatos, for they can easily be deteriorate in lower temperature.

Keep enough space between the foods as possible. If too tight or too close, cold air circulation is hindered, resulting in poor refrigeration.

Never forget to cover or wrap foods to prevent odour of foods.

1 hour after you get [CUBED ICE] or [CRUSHED ICE], the selection mode returns to [WATER] automatically.


How to use the Automatic Icemaker

(For Dispenser models)

About 10 icecubes (7~8 times a day) are made at one time. If the ice storage case is full, icemaking stops.

It is normal for the icemaker to make banging sounds when the icecubes are falling into the ice storage case.

To prevent a bad odour or smells, regularly clean the Icecubes Storage Case.

If the amount of ice in the storage case is not sufficient, the ice may not be dispensed. Wait a day or so to make more ice.

If the ice does not dispense easily, ensure the dispenser outlet is not blocked.

In case the icemaker doesn’t work


If the icecubes get stuck and not dispensed

Pull out the ice storage case and separate the icecubes any icecubes that may have stuck together.

If the amount of water which is supplied to the icemaker needs adjusting. Call for the service agent.

In case of power failure

The icecubes in the case may melt to flow down to the freezer room.

If long hours' of power failure is predicted, pull out the case, remove the icecubes in it and replace it back.

Use only the ices out of this refrigerator.


Temperarture Indicator

(Depending on models)


Temperature to set

Correct temperature


Prolonged opening of the door will cause the internal tem-perature to rise. You must therefore read the indicatorwithin 30 seconds of the door being opened for the readingto be correct.

Setting the temperature:

When putting your appliance into service, set the thermostat to amedium position.

Check the temperature indicator 4 hours afterputting your appliance into service, or after any change in thethermostat setting, observe the temperature light :

- If the indicator is still black, lower the temperature gradually byselecting a higher number around the thermostat and checkingthe temperature indicator again after 4 hours. Repeat this opera-tion as many times as necessary.

- If the indicator goes green and "OK" is indicated, the tempera-ture in your refrigerator is correctly set.

Before You Call for Service...

Please checkup the following troubleshooting tips before you call for service !

Problem Checkup Point Action

It never gets cold inside.

Freezing & refrigerating is not so good.

Is the refrigerator unpluged ?

Is the temperature set to [Low Mode] ?

Is the refrigerator under direct sunlight or is any heat appliance placed near it ?

Is the space between refrigerator back and the wall too close ?

Plug in the refrigerator.

Set the temperature mode to Middle or High.

Move to a place where there is no direct sunlight, no heat appliences around.

Keep sufficient space (more than

10cm)between refrigerator back and the wall.

Foods in the refrigerator get frozen.

Is temperature set to [Strong] ?

Is surround temperature too low ?

Is the food with much moisture stored close to the cold air spout ?

Set the temperature to [Middle] or [Low].

Foods can be frozen if ambient temperature is below 5 . Move to a place where the temperature is over 5 .

Place foods with moisture on the shelves close to the doors.

Strange sound from the refrigerator

Is floor beneath the refrigerator uneven ?

Is the space between refrigerator back and the wall too close ?

Do any objects other stuff touch the refrigerator?

Move the refrigerator to a level and even floor.

Keep sufficient space.

Remove any object a way which touches the refrigerator.

Odour or disgusting smell from the inside

Is the food stored uncovered or unwrapped ?

Are the shelves and pockets stained with food stuff ?

Is the food stored too long ?

Be sure to cover and wrap the foods.

Clean them regularly. Once smell gets soaked to those parts, it is not easy to remove.

Do not store foods for so long.

A refrigerator is neither a perfect nor a permanent foods keeper.

Something strange ?

Don t worry. Here is the answer.

Case Explanation


Front and side of refrigerator feels warm or hot.

Door is sticky

Doors do not open easily.

It sounds like water is flowing from the refrigerator.



Something cracking or click sound.

Humming or buzz sound.

Pipes (refrigerant vessel) are placed beneath the surface to prevent moisture forming on it.

When you close the door and then open again immediately,the door is not easy to open. Warm air rushes into the inside to make the pressure difference.

In this case wait for a minute, then it will open easily.

When the compressor starts to run or stops, refrigerant which makes the inside cold flowing in the pipes can make such a sound.

Defrosted water can also make such a sound. (This refrigerator adopts an automatic defrosting system.)

Inside parts shrink and/or expand due to temperature change ---When the inside gets cold or when the door is open ---such sound can be made.

Compressor or fans for cold air circulation can make such working sound. (If the refrigerator is not level, the sound can be louder.) en


& Dew

Dew or frost on the wall and/or food container surface in the freezer and refrigerator compartment.

Dew on the interior lights cover

Dew on the cabinet surface

Frost and/or dew can be made in the following cases ;

High temperature and/or high humidity around the refrigerator

When doors are open too long

Foods with much moisture are stored uncovered or unwrapped

You can see the same appearance when cold water is poured in a glass cup and dew is forming on the surface of it.

The light bulb radiates heat while it is on, so when doors are open too long, dew can form on the light cover due to temperature difference.

In case it is highly humid around the refrigerator, moisture in the air sticks to the surface to form the dew.

How to install Water Line

(Dispenser Models Only)

1. The water pressure should be 2.0~12.5 kgf/cm 2 or more to run the automatic icemaker.

Checkup your tap water pressure ; if a cup of 180cc is full within 10 seconds, the pressure is OK.

2. When installing the water tubes, ensure they are not close to any hot surfaces.

3. The water filter only filters water ; it does not eliminate any bacteria or microbes.

4. If the water pressure is not so high to run the icemaker, call the local plumber to get an additional water pressure pump.

5. The filter life depends on the amount of use. We recommend you replace the filter at least once every 6months.

When attaching the filter, place it for easy access (removing & replacing)

6. After installation of refrigerator and water line system, select

[WATER] on your control panel and press it for 2~3 minutes to supply water into the water tank and dispense water.

7. Use sealing tape to every connection of pipes/tubes to ensure there is no water leak.
