WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or personal
injury, the following precaution measures should be
followed:
NEVER disconnect the refrigerator by pulling the
power cord, always grip the plug firmly and disconnect
it directly from the outlet.
Do not keep bottles in the freezer compartment, they
could explode after freezing and cause damage.
For your safety, this product should be properly
grounded. Have a qualified professional check the
electrical circuit and outlet to ensure a proper ground
connection.
Read all instructions before utilizing the product. Utilize
this product only as explicitly expressed in this guide.
Once the refrigerator is operating, avoid touching cold
surfaces of the freezer with damp or wet hands; the
skin could become adhered to these surfaces.
Repair or replace immediately all faulty or damaged
service cables. Do not use cords that have cracks or
abrasion damage on the length of the cord or on the
plug.
When moving your refrigerator, take care not to roll
over the electrical cord.
In refrigerators with an automatic ice dispenser, avoid
contact with moving parts of the ejector mechanism
or with the heating mechanism that discharges the
cubes. DO NOT place your fingers or hands in the
ice dispenser mechanism while the refrigerator is
connected.
DO NOT store or use gasoline or other combustible
liquids or vapors in proximity with this or any other
electrical appliance.
DO NOT permit children to climb, stand or swing from
the doors or shelves of the refrigerator. This can cause
serious injury to them and damage to the product.
DO NOT refreeze foods which have already thawed.
The United States Department of Agriculture in Home
and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
Keep your fingers away from areas in which they
can become caught, such as the doors, hinges and
cabinets. Be careful closing the doors when children
are near.
“...You may refreeze food that has thawed if they contain
ice crystals or are cold and below 40 °F (4 °C)”.
“...Ground beef, perishable food or seafood that is
discolored or has an unpleasant odor should not be
frozen or consumed. Consumption of melted ice cream
should also be avoided. If the odor or color of food is
questionable, discard it. The food may be dangerous to
consume”.
“Partial thawing or refreezing reduces the quality of the
food, especially fruit, vegetables and prepared meals.
The quality of red meat is less affected than other foods.
Use refrozen products as soon as possible in order to
maintain their quality”.
Unplug the refrigerator before cleaning or repairing.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that any repair
services be performed by a qualified professional.
DO NOT store explosive substances such as aerosol
cans with a flammable propellant in this appliance.

in relation to the use of the appliance by the person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to
assure that they do not play with the appliance.
DANGER: CHILDREN MAY BECOME TRAPPED
BEFORE DISPOSING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
OR FREEZER WHEN NO LONGER IN USE:
ţ Remove the doors.
ţ Leave the shelves in place so that children
cannot easily become stuck in them.
Children becoming trapped or suffocated is not
a problem of the past. Discarded and abandoned
refrigerators are a hazard, even if they remain there
“for just a few days”. If you would like to dispose of
your old refrigerator, please follow the instructions
below to prevent any accidents.
WARNING

CFC DISPOSAL
Your old refrigerator may have a cooling system that
uses CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons). CFC affects the
stratospheric layer of the ozone.
If you decide to throw out your old refrigerator, ensure
that CFC contaminants are properly disposed of by a
qualified professional. If you intentionally remove the
CFC refrigerant, you could be subject to fines or prison
in accordance with environmental legislation in effect.
REQUIREMENTS FOR GROUND CONNECTION
It is recommended that a separate circuit be used for
this appliance, as well as a receptacle that cannot be
disconnected with a switch.
IMPORTANT: Attentively read the following.
TO CONNECT ELECTRICITY
WARNING
Do not use an extension cable. It is your responsibility
and obligation to replace two-prong outlets with that of
an adequately grounded three-prong outlet.
Do not, under any circumstance, cut or extract the third
prong from the plug.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD
FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY, this appliance must
be properly grounded. Have a qualified electrician
check your wall outlet to ensure that the plug is
grounded properly.
NOTE: Before installation, cleaning or replacing light
bulbs, you must disconnect the appliance from the
power source. When finished, plug the appliance back in
and adjust the thermostat to the desired position.
3 prong
grounding type
wall receptacle
USE OF EXTENSION CABLES
3 prong
grounding
plug
We do not recommend the use of extension cables.
However, if you still choose to utilize an extension cable,
it is absolutely necessary that it is listed in the UL (in
the United States) or CSA (in Canada), that it supports
three-pronged plugs and that the electrical current
support a minimum of 15 A and 120 V.
Ensure proper
ground exists
before use
The use of an extension cable will increase the amount
of space needed behind the refrigerator.
RECOMMENDED GROUNDING METHOD
WARNING
Your refrigerator must always be plugged to its own
outlet which is adequately grounded. The energy current
should only be 115 V ~ 60 Hz, AC or 127 V ~ 60 Hz,
AC (according to the National rating). This provides
the best performance and prevents an overload which
could cause a fire from the overheating of the cables.
REPLACING ELECTRICAL CABLE
If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
our service center or qualified LG technician to avoid
any risk.

CLOSING AND ALIGNING THE DOORS
Closing the Doors
Your refrigerator has two front leveling screws, one on
the right and one on the left. If your refrigerator seems
unstable or if you would like the doors to close more
easily, simply adjust the inclination of the refrigerator by
following the instructions below:
1. Plug the refrigerator into a 3 prong grounded outlet.
Move the refrigerator into its final position.
2. Use a flat head screwdriver to adjust the leveling screws,
turning clockwise to raise the side of the refrigerator
and counter-clockwise to lower it. It may take several
turns to adjust it to the inclination you would like.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws.
This will make it easier to adjust the screws.
Image only for reference.
When moving your refrigerator
Note: Your refrigerator is extremly heavy. When moving
the refrigerator for installing, cleaning or service be sure
to follow the next instructions.
1.
Adjust leveling legs up.
2.
Cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to
avoid floor damage.
Always pull or push the refrigerator straight out
when moving it. Do not wiggle or “walk” the
refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor damage
could occur.
Image only for reference.
3.
3. Open both doors again and check to make sure that
they close easily. If not, slightly tilt the refrigerator
further back by turning both leveling screws clockwise.
It may take several more turns. Make sure that you turn
both leveling screws the same amount.
4. Ensure that the refrigerator is even by using a level.

SPACEPLUS ICE SYSTEM
CAUTION
ţ Keep hands and tools out of the ice compartment
door and dispenser chute. You could break something or injure yourself.
NOTE: If the On/Off switch on the icemaker is set to
Off for an extended 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.
The icemaker will stop producing ice when the ice bin is
full. If you need more ice, empty the ice bin into the extra ice bin in the freezer compartment so the icemaker
can keep producing ice.
CAUTION
Shake the ice bin occasionally to level the ice in it.
Sometimes the ice piles up near the icemaker, causing
the icemaker to misread the amount of ice cubes and
stop producing ice.
While you handle the ice bin,
keep your hands out of blade.
The blade has sharp edges
could cause injury.
NOTE: Storing cans or other items in the ice bin may
damage the icemaker.
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 not
produce ice.
NOTE: To open or close the ice
room compartment, push or pull
on the handle.
To remove the in-door ice bin, grip the front handle,
slightly lift the lower part, and slowly pull out the bin as

contact an Authorized Service Center. Do
not use the ice or water until the problem is
corrected.
ţ Keep children away from the dispenser. Do not
allow children to play in or around dispenser.
ţ The ice passage may also become blocked with
frost if only crushed ice is used. Remove the
frost that accumulates.
ţ Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to
collect ice.
ţ Such glasses or containers may break, and
glass fragments could be in the ice.
ţ 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.
ţ Never use a glass that is exceptionally narrow
or deep. Ice may jam in the ice passage and
refrigerator performance may be affected.
ţ Keep the glass at a proper distance from the
ice outlet. A glass held too close to the outlet
may prevent ice from dispensing.
ţ To avoid personal injury, keep hands out of the
ice door and passage.
ţ Never remove the dispenser cover.

STORING FROZEN FOOD
NOTE: For more information on how to prepare food to
be frozen such in a way to see the period they can be
stored consult a frozen food guide or cook book.
Packaging
A great freezing depends on how great you package the
food. When you seal the package make sure you remove
all excess air and do not allow humidity. A package that
is incorrectly sealed will result in the transmission of bad
odors, contaminants inside your refrigerator and will
23
USING YOUR REFRIGERATOR
Packaging Recommendations:
ţ Use sealed plastic containers.
ţ Use plastic containers with a smooth surface.
ţ Package with aluminum foil of high resistance.
ţ Wrap with paper layered with plastic.
ţ Use water proof plastic.
ţ Use recommended plastic bags to store frozen foods.
REFRIGERATOR SECTION
REFRIGERATOR SHELVES
Follow these packaging or container instructions in order
to reach the best freezing
The shelving of your refrigerator can be adjusted to
comply with your storage necessities; Depending on
the model you have in can include glass shelving or
wired shelving. The storing of your foods together and
adjusting the shelving to different heights will ease to
help you locate what you need. This also helps your
refrigerator to stay shut longer which will save you energy.
Do not use:
ţ Bread Wrapping.
ţ Plastic container not safe for storing.
ţ Containers without lids or seals.
ţ Waxed paper or waxed plastic.
ţ Thin wrapping paper or not water proof.
IMPORTANT: While your refrigerator glass shelving are
cold do not clean with hot or warm water. The glass
shelving may break if exposed to rapid temperature
changes or hard impacts. For your safety the glass
shelving are made out of tempered glass so when at
breaking they will fracture into tiny fragments.
Freezing
NOTE: Be careful while moving or relocating the shelves
they are heavy. If moving the shelves is required keep in
mind to locate them in a safe environment to prevent
them from breaking.
IMPORTANT: Do not keep bottles in the freezer
compartment, they may explode after freezing and
cause damage.
For the maximum use of your freezer do not store excess
food. Do not introduce a large amount of unfrozen foods
that cannot be frozen within 24 hours (no more than
2 – 3 pounds or ,91 kg - 1,36 kg of food per square
inch of space in the freezer). Sufficient space must be
left in order for the air to circulate properly around the
packages. Leave enough space in order to close your
refrigerator with out difficulty.
Adjusting Shelves
Remove the shelves and adjust them to your convenience.
ţRemoving Shelves
Incline the front of the shelf in the direction indicated by
figure 1 and lift in the direction indicated by figure 2. Pull
the shelf towards you.
1
Storage times can vary depending on the type and
quality of the food, the way its package, or packaging
container used, (in comparison to air and humidity), and
the temperature it being stored in. Ice crystals formed
inside your package are normal it indicates the air and
humidity inside your package have condensed.
2
NOTE: Let warm foods cool off at room temperature
for approximately 30 min, then wrap accordingly with
the methods mention above and freeze. By letting your
warm foods cool off before you introduce them to your
freezer it will save you energy.
WARNING
ţ Replacing Shelves
Incline the frontal part of the shelf (1) and guide the
shelf hooks towards the openings at the height desired.
Then lower the front of the shelf (2) so the hooks can be
inserted (3) in the shelf supports.

SUFFOCATING DANGER
Adequate ventilation is required when using dry ice.
Dry ice is Carbon Dioxide (CO2). When it evaporates it
produces oxygen, causing dizziness, slight headaches,
unconsciousness or death. Do not inhale these vapors
and properly ventilate the room while you use dry ice.

ţ
In case of a black out, call your electric company
and ask how long it will last.
In case of a 24 hour or less black out, do not open
the refrigerator; this will keep the food fresh.
In case of a longer black out, do one of the following
options:
Pull out all of the frozen food and keep them in an
ice chest.
Put 2 lbs (907 g) of frozen ice (make sure you use
gloves) for each square foot (28 L) inside the freezer.
This task will preserve the food from 2 to 4 days.
In case you do not possess neither ice chest or dry
ice, consume your food as soon as possible.
REMEMBER: In a power failure, a full freezer stays cold
longer than a partially filled one. A freezer full of meat
stays cold longer than a freezer full of baked goods. If
you see that food contains ice crystals, it may be safely
refrozen, although the quality and flavor may be affected.
If the condition of the food is poor or if you feel it unsafe,
dispose of it.
WHEN GOING ON VACATION
If you decide to leave your refrigerator on when going
away, consider these steps:
1. Consume all of the perishable items and freeze the
rest.
2. Empty the ice bin.
If you decide to leave your refrigerator off:
1. Remove all of the food.
2. Unplug your refrigerator.
3. Clean and dry it well.

CONNECTING THE WATER LINE
To determine how much pipe material is needed,
measures the distances between the valves located
behind the refrigerator and the source of water and add
to that 8 feet (2,4 m). Make sure there is sufficient pipe
material to allow the free movement of the refrigerator
from the wall
BEFORE START
The water source is not guaranteed by the refrigerator
manufacturer. Follow instructions carefully in order to
reduce damage.
Air located inside the water pipes can cause hammering
or tapping causing damage to the inner pipes or water
spillage in the inside of the refrigerator. Call a qualified
plumber to fix such hammering on the connections
before installing the water pipe.
ţ A cold water source. Water pressure should be between
0,138 and 0,82 MPa or 20 and 120 PSI for models not
containing water filter and between 0,276 and 0,82
MPa or 40 and 120 PSI for models containing water
filter.
To avoid burn damage or such, never connect refrigerator
to hot water pipes.
ţ A drill.
ţ Adjustable 1/2 in (12,7 mm) key.
If you are to use the refrigerator before connecting it
to the water source, make sure the ice maker is the off
position.
ţ Flat and Phillips style (star)
screwdriver.
Never attempt to install the ice maker pipes in areas
where room temperature is below freezing point.
ţ Two 1/4 in (6,35 mm) diameter
compression nuts with two
sides to connect the copper
pipe to the refrigerator valve.
When using any electrical device (like a drill) during
the installation, make sure device is doubly isolated or
making ground to prevent risk of electrical surge or
discharge.
If your current copper pipe has some
reduction on the ends, it will be
necessary to get and adaptor (found
in hardware stores) to connect the
water line to the refrigerator. It is also possible to cut such
reductions with a pipe cutter and use the compression
connections mentioned above.
All installations should be done considering local water
and drainage requirements.
ţ If an inverted osmosis water filtration system is
connected to the cold water source, the water hose
installation is not assured or guaranteed by the
refrigerator or automated ice maker manufacturer.
Follow the next instructions carefully to minimize costly
water related damages.
ţ When having an inverted osmosis water filtration
system connected to the cold-water flow, the water
pressure for such system must be at least between
40-60 PSI or 0,27 MPa (2,8 kg · f / cm ² ~ 4,2 kg · f
/ cm ², (2,8 kg · f / cm ² ~ 4,2 kg · f / cm ², less than
2 ~ 3 seconds to fill a 7 oz of capacity cup [0,2 liters]).
ţ If the inverted osmosis water filtration system pressure
is less than 21 PSI or 0,14 MPa (1,5 kg · f / cm ², more
than four (4) seconds to fill a 7 oz of capacity cup [0,2
liters]):
a) Identify if the sediments filter in the inverted osmosis
system is being blocked. Replace filter if necessary.
b) Allow inverted osmosis system storage tank to refill
after extensive usage.
c) Call a qualified plumber if the inverted osmosis water
pressure problem continues.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
UNDERSTANDING SOUNDS YOU MAY HEAR
Your new refrigerator might produce certain noises that your previous refrigerator did not. It is normal if you worry.
Most of the new sounds you will be hearing are actually normal and expected. Hard surfaces like walls or floor can
increase sounds and make them sound louder than they really are. The following list has a description of such sounds
along with their causes.
ţYour refrigerator is designed to work efficiently to
preserve your food at the desired temperature using
the least of energy. You will be able to hear a pulsing
sound coming from the ventilators and the evaporator.
The speed of the ventilator can speed up when you
open the refrigerator door.
ţAfter each cycle you will hear a dripping sound due to
the refrigerant liquid in your refrigerator.
ţContraction and expansion of the inner walls can cause
a slight popping sound.
