Features of your new Refrigerator
Key features of your new refrigerator
Your Samsung Side-By-Side Refrigerator comes equipped with many space-saving, innovative storage and
energy-efficient features.
• Twin Cooling Plus™
The Refrigerator and Freezer have separate evaporators. Due to this independent cooling system,
the Freezer and Refrigerator cool more efficiently. Additionally, this separate air flow system
prevents food odor of one compartment from seeping into other compartments.
• Multi Airflow
Provides even cooling throughout the refrigerator to maintain optimal temperatures
to keep food fresh.
• LED Tower Lighting
See everything in a new light with LED tower lighting.
• Premium Design Ice and Water Dispenser
Quick and easy access to filtered water and cubed/crushed ice with the external dispenser.
• External Digital Display and Control
Controlling the refrigerator is easy with the external digital display. It shows the inside
temperatures, when to change your filter and also controls the ice and water dispenser.
• Clear View Icemaker
The Icemaker is located in the freezer door, this ensures that all the freezer shelf space can be
fully utilized. Ice cubes are quickly produced and the clear ice bucket lets you easily see the
amount of ice cubes produced.
• Auto-moisture Drawer
A “Shape Memory Polymer” is equipped on the “Auto-moisture Drawer(crisper)”, which provides
automatic humidity control. To maintain the optimal humidity in the crisper, the fine-mesh holes in
the polymer control the flow of moisture.
For easy future reference write the model and serial
number down. You will find your model number on
the left hand side wall of the refrigerator.

CHECKinG tHE wAtER DisPEnsER LinE
A water dispenser is one of the helpful features on your new Samsung Refrigerator. To help promote better
health, the Samsung 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 (pound per square inch) is
required. Under normal conditions, a 170 cc (5.75 oz.) paper cup can be filled in 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.
Water line installation kits are available at extra cost from your dealer. We recommend using a water supply
kit that contains copper tubing.
01 SETTING UP
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.
Connecting to the water supply line
1. First, shut off the main water supply line and turn the ice-maker off.
2. Locate the nearest cold, drinking water line.
3. A
fter connecting the water supply to the water filter, turn your main water supply back on and flush four
or more gallons into a bucket to clear and prime the water filter.

2. Tighten the compression nut onto the 1/4” compression fitting.
- If you are using copper tubing, slip the compression nut (not included) and ferrule (not included)
on copper tubing (not included) as shown.
- If you are using plastic tubing , insert the molded end of the plastic tubing into the
compression fitting.
3. Tighten the compression nut onto the compression fitting. Do not over-tighten the compression nut .
4. Turn water on and check for any leakage.
Only connect the water line to a drinkable water source.
If you have to repair or disassemble the water line, cut off 1/4“ of the plastic tubing to make sure
you get a snug, leak-free connection.
Installing the water filter.
Before installing the water filter, please remove the
top shelf.
1. Remove the water filter cover( 1 )
2. Remove the fixed cap by turning it counter
clockwise. Keep the cap in a safe place for later use
if you don’t use a filter.
3. Remove the water filter from the box and put a
replacement indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
Place a sticker on the filter that dates six months
in the future. For example, if you install the water
filter in March, put the “SEP” sticker on the filter to
remind you to replace in September. That way you’ll
know when it is time to replace the filter. Normally, a
filter life is about 6 months.

1. Turn ON the main water supply.
2. Press the water button and push the disperser pad.
3. Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear (approx.
3L). This will clean the water supply system and remove air from the
lines.
4. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
5. Open the refrigerator door and make sure there are no water leaks
coming from the water filter.
01 SETTING UP
Removing any residual matter inside the water
supply line after installing filter.
A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly
spurt from the water dispenser. This is due to air getting into the
line. It should pose no problem to operation.
Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray.
1. Lift up the icemaker cover and gently pull it out.
2. When you press the Test button for 3 seconds, the ice cube container is filled with water from the
water supply tap. Check to make sure the amount of water is correct(see the illustration below).
If the water level is too low, the ice cubes will be small. This is a water pressure problem from
within the main water pipes, not the refrigerator.

Controlling the temperature
Basic Temperature of Freezer and Fridge
The basic and recommended temperature of Freezer and Fridge compartments are -20ºC/3ºC.
If the temperature of Freezer and Fridge compartments are too high or low, adjust the temperature
manually.
Controlling the Freezer temperature
The freezer temperature can be set between -14°C and -25ºC to suit your particular needs. Press the
Freezer button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display. Keep in
mind that foods like ice cream may melt at -16ºC.
The temperature display will move sequentially from -14°C and -25ºC. When the display reaches
-14ºC, it will begin again at -25ºC.
Five seconds after the new temperature is set the display will again show the actual current freezer
temperature. However, this number will change as the Freezer adjusts to the new temperature.
Controlling the Fridge temperature
The refrigerator temperature can be set between 7ºC and 1ºC to suit your particular needs. Press the
Fridge button repeatedly until the desired temperature is shown in the temperature display.
The temperature control process for the Fridge works just like the Freezer process.
Press the Fridge button to set your desired temperature. After a few seconds, the Fridge will begin
tracking towards the newly set temperature. This will be reflected in the digital display.
- The temperature of the freezer or the refrigerator may rise from opening the doors too
frequently, or if a large amount of warm or hot food is placed in either side.
- This may cause the digital display to blink. Once the freezer and refrigerator return to their
normal set temperatures the blinking will stop.
- If the blinking continues, you may need to “reset” the refrigerator. Try unplugging the
appliance, wait about 10 minutes and then plug back in.

Caring for your Samsung Side-By-Side Refrigerator prolongs the life of your appliance and helps keep it odor
and germ-free.
Cleaning the Interior
Clean the inside walls and accessories with a mild detergent and then
wipe dry with a soft cloth. You can remove the drawers and shelves for
a more thorough cleaning. Just make sure to dry them before putting
them back into place.
02 OPERATING
Cleaning the Exterior
Wipe the digital panel and display panel with a clean, soft cloth.
Spray water onto the cleaning cloth instead of spraying directly on
the surface of the refrigerator. This helps ensure an even distribution
of moisture to the surface. The doors, handles and cabinet surfaces
should be cleaned with a mild detergent and then wiped dry with a soft
cloth. To keep your appliance looking its best, the exterior should be
polished once or twice a year.
Do not use Benzene, Thinner or Clorox™ for cleaning.
may damage the surface of the appliance and can create a risk of fire.
WARNING They

If the rubber door seals are dirty, the doors may not close properly,
and the refrigerator will not operate efficiently. Keep the door seals
free of grit or grime by cleaning the doors with a mild detergent and
damp cloth. Wipe dry with a clean, soft cloth.
CAUTION
Do not spray the refrigerator with water while it is plugged in, as it may cause an electric
shock. Do not clean the refrigerator with benzene, thinner or car detergent as there is a risk

CHANGING the interior lights
WARNING
Pull the power plug out of the socket before changing the interior light of the refrigerator.
- Otherwise, there is a risk of electric shock.
If you experience difficulty when changing the light, contact your service center.
Changing the LED Type Lighting
CAUTION
Do not disassemble or replace the LED type Lighting.
To change the LED Type Lighting, contact a Samsung service center.
Changing the WATER FILTER
The “Filter Indicator” light lets you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To give
you preparation time to get a new filter, the red light will come 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 fridge.
1. Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator sticker on the filter as shown.
Place a sticker on the filter that dates six months in the future. For example, if you are
replacing the water filter in March, put the “SEP” (September) sticker on the filter to remind
you to replace in September. Normal filter life is about every 6 months.
2. Remove the new filter’s protective cap and remove the old filter.
3. Position and insert the new filter into the filter housing.
Slowly turn the water filter clockwise to align with the printing mark on the cover, locking
the filter in position. Make sure to align the water filter label mark with the center of cover
filter printing as illustrated. Remember, do not over-tighten.

SOLUTION
The refrigerator does not
work at all or it does not
chill sufficiently.
• Check that the power plug is properly connected.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a lower temperature.
• Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located too near a heat source?
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air
from circulating?
The food in the fridge is
frozen.
• Is the temperature control on the display panel set to the correct
temperature? Try setting it to a warmer temperature.
• Is the temperature in the room very low?
• Did you store the food with a high water content in the coldest part of the
fridge?
You hear unusual noises
or sounds.
• Check that the refrigerator is level and stable.
• Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall and therefore keeping air
from circulating?
• Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator?
• A “ticking” sound is heard from inside the refrigerator. This is normal and
occurs because various accessories are contracting or expanding in relation
to the temperature of the refrigerator interior.
The front corners of
the appliance are hot
and condensation is
occurring.
• Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the front corners of
the refrigerator to prevent condensation.
• Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the
door open for a long time.
Ice is not dispensing.
• Did you wait for 12 hours after installation of the water supply line before
making ice?
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• Did you manually stop the ice making function? Make sure Ice Type is set to
Cubed or Crushed.
• Is there any ice blocked within the ice maker bucket?
• Is the freezer temperature too warm? Try setting the freezer temperature lower.
You can hear water
bubbling in the
refrigerator.
03 troubleshooting
PROBLEM
• This is normal. The bubbling comes from the refrigerant coolant liquid
circulating through the refrigerator.
There is a bad smell in
the refrigerator.
• Has a food item spoiled?
• Make sure that strong smelling food (for example, fish) is wrapped so that it
is airtight.
• Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspect food.
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 foods stored for efficient air circulation.
• Is the freezer door closed properly?
Water dispenser is not
functioning.
• Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve open?
• 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 refrigerator temperature is too low?
Try selecting a warmer setting on the main display panel.
