USE ONLY SAMSUNG BRAND WATER FILTERS. SAMSUNG is not legally responsible for any damage, including, but not limited to, property damage caused by water leakage from the use of a generic water filter. 3. Insert the new filter into the filter case ( 4 ). 4 (Red) SAMSUNG Refrigerators are designed to work ONLY WITH SAMSUNG Water Filters. The Filter light turns red to let you know when it is time to change your water filter cartridge. To give you time to get a new filter, the red light comes 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 refrigerator. 1. Shut off the water supply. Then, turn the water filter ( 1 ) about 1/4 turn, counter-clockwise. 2. Pull the water filter ( 1 ) out of the case filter ( 2 ). 2 1 • To change the water filter more easily, shut off the water supply valve. • Sometimes, it is hard to disassemble the water filter because impurities in the water cause it to stick. If you are having difficulties, grip the water filter firmly and pull it hard. • When you pull out the water filter, a little water can leak from the opening. This is normal. To minimize the water leaks, keep the filter cartridge horizontal when you pull it. • To prevent overflow, empty the water filter tray ( 3 ) and dry around the filter case ( 2 ). 4. Push the filter in, and then turn it clockwise until it locks. • If you have trouble inserting the water filter because of high water pressure, shut off the water supply valve. • The locked symbol should be lined up with the indicator line. 5. Touch the “Crushed/Hold 3 sec for Filter Reset” button ( (Filter Reset) ) for about 3 seconds to reset the water filter. The color of the indicator changes from red to off. 6. If you turned off the water supply, turn it back on. • For a replacement water filter, visit your local home Improvement center, go to Samsung Parts.com on line, or contact your authorized Samsung dealer. Be sure the replacement water filter has the SAMSUNG logo on the box and on the water filter.

Turn ON the main water supply and supply water from water supply line. 3. Additional flushing may be required in some households. 4. Open the Refrigerator door and make sure there are no water leaks coming from the water filter. The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the refrigerator needs to be between 241 and 827 kPa. 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 276 to 414 kPa. If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than 276 to 414 kPa: Operating 2. Run water through the dispenser until the water runs clear (approx. 6 to 7 minutes). This will clean the water supply system and remove air from the lines. Reverse Osmosis Water Supply IMPORTANT: • Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary. • Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy usage. • If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse osmosis system. Remove the water filter. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. • Be sure to flush the dispenser thoroughly, otherwise water may drip from the dispenser. If water drips, it means that there is still air in the line.

If it is, set the freezer or fridge to a colder temperature. • Is the refrigerator in direct sunlight or located near a heat source? If so, it may not be able to cool sufficiently. Install it in a location that is out of direct sunlight and not near a heat source. • Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation? If so, it may not be able to cool sufficiently. Keep it an appropriate distance from the wall. • Is there too much food inside so that the food is blocking the outlet vent? To keep the refrigerator at a suitable temperature, do not fill the refrigerator with too much food. The food in the fridge is frozen. • Check if the set temperature on the digital display is too low. If so, raise the set temperature inside the refrigerator. • Is the temperature in the room too low? Set the refrigerator warmer. • Did you store food with a high moisture content in the coldest part of the refrigerator or near the cooling outlet vent? Try moving those items to the other shelves in the fridge instead of keeping them in the colder areas or bins. You hear unusual noise or sounds. • Check if the refrigerator is level and stable. • Is the back of the refrigerator too close to the wall, preventing proper ventilation? • Was anything dropped behind or under the refrigerator? • If you hear a “ticking” sound from inside the refrigerator, this is normal. It occurs because various parts contract or expand in response to temperature changes in the refrigerator interior. • If it sounds as if something is hitting something else inside the refrigerator, this is normal. The sound is caused by the compressor operating at high capacity. The cabinet-door sealing area of the appliance is hot and condensation is occurring. • Some heat is normal as anti-condensators are installed in the vertical hinged section of the refrigerator to prevent condensation. • Is the refrigerator door ajar? Condensation can occur when you leave the door open for a long time. The Ice Maker is not producing ice. • The refrigerator may take longer to make ice if it is not sufficiently cool, such as when first installed. • Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened? • Did you manually stop the ice making function? • Check if the filter is properly installed. If it is not properly installed, the ice making function may not work. English - 32 DA68-03194D-01.indb manuals 32 Downloaded from www.manualsdb.com search engine 15. 1. 8. �� 11:06 SOLUTION You can hear water bubbling in the refrigerator. • This is normal. The bubbling comes from refrigerant circulating through the refrigerator. There is a bad smell in the refrigerator. • Check for spoiled food. • Foods with strong odors (for example, fish) should be tightly covered. • Clean out your freezer periodically and throw away any spoiled or suspicious 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 stored food for efficient air circulation. • Is the freezer drawer closed properly? The water dispenser is not functioning. • • • • The auto close system does not work with the freezer door. • Is there an imbalance between the right and left parts of the door? • Open and close the door smoothly 1~2 times. After you do this, the auto close system usually works properly again. • Try opening the door smoothly to avoid unbalancing the right part and the left part of the door. Condensation or water drops forms on vertical mullion and surroundings, etc. • Condensation or water drops may form if the humidity is too high while the refrigerator is operating. • If condensation or water drops appears on vertical mullion and surroundings, etc., turn the Energy Saving mode off after removing the condensation. Is the water line connected and the shut-off valve opened? 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 fridge temperature is too low? Try selecting a warmer setting on the Digital display. • Check if the filter is properly installed. If it is not properly installed, the water dispenser may not work. troubleshooting PROBLEM English - 33 DA68-03194D-01.indb manuals 33 Downloaded from www.manualsdb.com search engine 15. 1. 8. �� 11:06 Warranty (USA) WARRANTY ON SAMSUNG REFRIGERATOR LIMITED WARRANTY TO ORIGINAL PURCHASER This Samsung brand product, as supplied and distributed by Samsung Electronics America, Inc.
