ENSURING
PROPER AiR CiRCULATiON
In order to ensure proper temperatures,
air must flow
between the refrigerator and freezer sections.
As shown
in the illustration below, cool air enters through the bottom
of the freezer section and moves up. Most of the air then
flows through the freezer section vents and recirculates
under the freezer floor. The rest of the air enters the
refrigerator section through the top vent.
NEXT
1. Clean your refrigerator thoroughly and wipe off all dust
accumulated during shipping.
2. Install accessories such as ice cube bin, drawers,
shelves, etc., in their proper places. They are packed
together to prevent possible damage during shipment.
3. Let your refrigerator run for at least 2 or 3 hours before
putting food in it. Check the flow of cold air in the
freezer compartment to ensure proper cooling. Your
refrigerator is now ready for use.
• Do not block any of these vents with food packages.
If the vents are blocked, airflow will be interrupted and
temperature and moisture problems may occur.
iMPORTANT."
Because air circulates between both sections, any odors
formed in one section will transfer to the other. You must
thorougly clean both sections to eliminate odors.
To prevent odor transfer and drying out food, wrap or
cover foods tightly. (See the Food Storage Guide section
for details.)
SETTING
THE CONTROLS
Your refrigerator has two controls to regulate temperature,
one in the freezer and one in the refrigerator.
REFRIGERATOR
CONTROL
Initially set the Refrigerator Control on the middle setting,
number 3. To do so, push the temperature adjust button
until the number 3 LED light is lit up. Leave the refrigerator
at this setting for 24 hours to reach correct temperature.
After 24 hours, adjust the compartment temperature as
desired. The higher the number, the colder the refrigerator
compartment will become. Always wait 24 hours before
adjusting temperature.
If you go past the desired number,
keep pushing the temperature adjust button until your
desired number is lit up.
®
COLDER
Note: If you close the
refrigerator door forcefully,
the freezer door may open
and close again due to
pressure from internal air flow.
FREEZER
CONTROL

middle setting, number 2. Wait 24 hours before adjusting
the temperature of the freezer compartment up or down.
Turn the dial to set freezer temperature as desired.
