Connecting the Water Line Before You Begin CAUTION INSTALLATION 21 E N G L I S

This water line installation is not covered by the refrigerator warranty. Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage. Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and can lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator. CAUTION To prevent burns and product damange, only connect the refrigerator water line to a cold water supply. If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line, make sure the icemaker power switch is in the OFF (O) position. CAUTION Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing. Water Pressure A cold water supply. 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. If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply, this water line installation is not covered by the refrigerator warranty. Follow the following instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage. 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 (276~414 kPa or 2.8~4.2 kgf/cm², less than 2.0~3.0 sec. to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity). Wear eye protection during installation H to prevent injury. If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis system is less than 20 psi or 138 kPa or 1.4 kgf/ cm² (takes more than 4.0 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity): ⮹ Check to see if the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary. ⮹ Allow the storage tank on the reverse usage. ⮹ If the issue concerning water pressure from reverse osmosis remains, call a licensed, qualified plumber. ⮹ All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements. What You Will Need ⮹ Copper Tubing, ¼ in. outer diameter, to connect the refrigerator to the water supply. Be sure both ends of the tubing are cut square. ⮹ To determine how much tubing you need: measure the distance from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then, add 8 feet (2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10 in. [25 cm] diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation. ⮹ Power drill. ⮹ ½ in. or adjustable wrench. ⮹ Flat blade and Phillips head screwdrivers. ⮹ Two ¼ in. outer diameter compression nuts and 2 ferrules (sleeves) to connect the copper tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator water valve. 22 INSTALLATION ⮹ If your existing copper water line has a flared fitting at the end, you will need E an adapter (available at plumbing supply N G stores) to connect the water line to the L refrigerator OR you can cut off the flared I S H fitting with a tube cutter and then use a compression fitting. ⮹ Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line. The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with a minimum inside diameter of 5/32 in. at the point of connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type shutoff valves are included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle type valve complies with your local plumbing codes. NOTE A self piercing saddle type water valve should not be used. Water Line Installation Instructions WARNING When using any electrical device (such as a power drill) during installation, be sure the device is battery powered, double insulated or grounded in a manner that will prevent the hazard of electric shock. Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently used drinking water line. 1 SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure on the line. 2 CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION Choose a location for the valve that is easily accessible. It is best to connect into the side of a vertical water pipe. When it is necessary to connect into a horizontal water pipe, make the connection to the top or side, rather than at the bottom, to avoid drawing off any sediment from the water pipe. 3 DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE Drill a ¼ in. hole in the water pipe using a sharp bit. Remove any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in the pipe. Be careful not to allow water to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a ¼ in. hole may result in reduced ice production or smaller cubes. NOTE The hookup line cannot be white, plastic tubing. Licensed plumbers must use only copper tubing NDA tubing #49595 or 49599 or Cross Link Polyethylene (PEX) tubing. 4 FASTEN THE SHUTOFF VALVE Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe clamp. Pipe Clamp INSTALLATION 23 7 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE VALVE Place the compression nut and ferrule E N (sleeve) for copper tubing onto the end of G the tubing and connect it to the shutoff L I valve.

Each compartment inside the refrigerator is designed to store different types of food. H Store your food in the optimal space to enjoy the freshest taste.

Vegetable storage (Crisper) Preserves vegetables and fruit. Ice storage bin If a large amount of ice is needed, transfer the ice in the in-door ice bin to the ice storage bin. Durabase® Largest storage space in the freezer. CAUTION 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 seasonings, salad dressings and other food items. Glide‘N’Serve Provides storage space with a variable temperature control that keeps the compartment at a different temperature than the refrigerator. It is a convenient place to store sandwiches or meat to be cooked.

⮹ 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. ⮹ 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. ⮹ 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. ⮹ If the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is opened or closed too often, warm air may penetrate the refrigerator and raise its temperature. It can also increase the cost of electricity. NOTE ⮹ 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. ⮹ 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.

34 HOW TO USE Food Storage Tips E * The following tips may not be applicable N G depending on the model. L I S H 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 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 reezing Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within

Butter or Margarine Keep opened butter in a covered dish or closed compartment. When storing an extra supply, wrap in freezer packaging and freeze. 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.

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 best storage, place milk on interior shelf, not on door 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. 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.

Leafy Vegetables Vegetables with skins (carrots, peppers) 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. 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, aluminum foil, or plastic containers with tight lids.

Storing Frozen Food (continued) Packaging ackaging Successful freezing depends on correct packaging. When you close and seal the package, it must not allow air or moisture in or out.

44 SMART DIAGNOSIS SMART DIAGNOSIS E N Should you experience any problems with G L your refrigerator, it has the capability of I S transmitting data via your telephone to the LG H service center. This gives you the capability of speaking directly to our trained specialists. The specialist records the data transmitted from your machine and uses it to analyze the issue, providing a fast and effective diagnosis. If you experience problems with your refrigerator, call 1-800-243-0000. Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center agent. The transmission sounds that you will hear are normal and sound similar to a fax machine. Smart Diagnosis cannot be activated unless your refrigerator is connected to power. If your refrigerator is unable to turn on, then troubleshooting must be done without using Smart Diagnosis. Using Smart Diagnosis First, call 1-800-243-0000. Only use the Smart Diagnosis feature when instructed to do so by the LG call center agent. 1 Lock the display. To lock the display, press and hold the Lock button for three seconds. (If the display has been locked for over five minutes, you must deactivate the lock and then reactivate it.) 2 Open the right refrigerator door. 3 Hold the mouthpiece of your phone in front of the speaker that is located on the right hinge of the refrigerator door, when instructed to do so by the call center. 4 Press and hold the Freezer Temperature button for three seconds while continuing to hold your phone to the speaker. 5 After you hear three beeps, release the Freezer Temperature button. 6 Keep the phone in place until the tone transmission has finished. This takes about 15 seconds, and the display will count down the time. Once the countdown is over and the tones have stopped, resume your conversation with the specialist, who will then be able to assist you in using the information transmitted for analysis. NOTE ⮹ For best results, do not move the phone while the tones are being transmitted. ⮹ If the call center agent is not able to get an accurate recording of the data, you may be asked to try again. NOTE ⮹ Call quality differences by region may affect the function. ⮹ Use the home telephone for better communication performance, resulting in better service. ⮹ Bad call quality may result in poor data transmission from your phone to the machine, which could cause Smart Diagnosis to not work properly.
