WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFETY
Please observe the following safety precautions to use the refrigerator safely and correctly and to prevent accident or injury when servicing. 1. Be careful of an electric shock. Disconnect power cord from wall outlet and wait for more than three minutes before replacing PWB parts. Disconnect the power whenever replacing and repairing electric components. 2. If disconnecting the power, wait at least 5 minutes before plugging the unit back in. 3. Before touching the power cord, make sure the cord is not damaged. If the power cord is damaged, it can cause a fire or an electrical shock. 4. Make sure the unit has a dedicated circuit breaker. Overloading the circuit can cause a fire. 5. Please make sure the outlet is properly grounded. Particularly in a wet or damp area. 6. Use standard electrical components. 7. Remove dust and foreign materials from the housing and connecting parts. 8. Do not fray, damage, run over, kink, bend, pull out, or twist the power cord. 9. Please check for evidence of moisture intrusion in the electrical components. Replace the parts or mask with insulation tape if moisture intrusion is confirmed. 10. Stay clear of the icemaker with hands or tools if the unit has power. Do not try to manually turn the ice maker even when turned off. 11. Customers should not repair the refrigerator themselves. This work requires special tools and knowledge. Non-professionals could cause fire, injury, or damage to the product. 12. Do not store flammable materials such as ether, benzene, alcohol, chemicals, or gas in the refrigerator. 13. Do not put anything on top of the refrigerator, especially something containing water, like a vase. 14. Do not put glass bottles of water into the freezer. The contents will freeze and break the bottles. 15. If you scrap or discard the refrigerator, remove the doors and dispose of it where children are not likely to play in or around it.

This phenomenon can be compared with that of cars. When an automobile engine starts. Sound Problems Hiss sounds Checks and Measures I Explain general principles of sounds.97 - . • This operating sound happens when the compressor compresses the refrigerant. • Sound becomes louder if the refrigerator is installed on a wooden floor or near a wooden wall. This sound is caused by the vibration of motor and piston when they start and finish their operation. If there is a small space between the refrigerator and the wall. • There is a fan on the back of the refrigerator which cools the compressor compartment.

The compressor rotates at 3600 RPM. Hiss sounds are heard when the air passes through the narrow holes into the freezer and refrigerator compartments. Move it to the another location. • Insert bushing or leave a space between pipes to avoid the noise. Clunk sound I Explain that it comes from the compressor when the refrigerator starts. I Sound depends on the installation location. the piston and motor in the compressor rotate at 3600 RPM. This sound also happens during defrosting.

Problems Checks and Measures

Sounds of water flowing

I Explain the flow of refrigerant. • When the refrigerator stops, the water flowing sound happens. This sound happens when the liquid or vapor refrigerant flows from the evaporator to compressor.

Click sounds

I Explain the characteristics of moving parts. • This noise comes from the MICOM controller's switch on the top of the refrigerator when it is turned on and off.

Noise of Icemaker operation (applicable to model with Icemaker). - Noise produced by ice dropping and hitting ice bin. - Noise from motor sounds Hiss.

I Explain the procedure and principles of Icemaker operation. • Automatic Icemaker repeats the cycle of water supplying ➝ icemaking ➝ ice ejection. When water is supplied, the water supply valve in the machine room makes sounds like Hiss and water flowing also makes sound. When water freezes, clicking sounds are heard. When ice is being ejected, sounds like Hiss produced by a motor to rotate an ice tray and ice dropping and hitting ice bin sounds are also heard.

Noise when supplying water.

I Explain the principles of water supplied to dispenser. • When the water supply button in the dispenser is pressed, the water supply valve in the compressor compartment opens and let the water flow to the water tank in the lower part of the refrigerator compartment. The water is dispensed by this pressure. When this happens, motor sound and water flowing sound are heard.

Noise when supplying ice.

I Explain the principles of ice supply and procedure of crushed icemaking in a dispenser. • When ice cube button is pressed, ice stored in the ice bin is moved by an auger and dispensed. If crushed ice button is pressed, the ice cube is crushed. When this happens, ice crushing and hitting ice bin sounds are heard.

TROUBLE DIAGNOSIS
2. Measures for Symptoms on Temperature
Problems Checks and Measures

Refrigeration is weak.

I Check temperature set in the temperature control knob. • Refrigerator is generally delivered with the button set at normal use (MID). But customer can adjust the temperature set depending on their habit and taste. If you feel the refrigeration is weak, then set the temperature control button at strong position. If you adjust the button in the freezer compartment as well, the refrigeration is stronger than adjusting refrigerator only.

The food in the chilled drawer is not frozen but defrosted

I The chilled drawer does not freeze food. • Use chilled drawer for storing fresh meat or fish for short periods. For storing for a long period or freezing food, use a freezer compartment. It is normal that frozen foods thaw above the freezing temperature (in the chilled drawer).

Refrigerator water is not cool.

I Check the water storage location. • If water is kept in the door rack, move it to a refrigerator shelf. It will then become cooler.

Ice cream softens.

I Explain the characteristics of ice cream. • The freezing point of ice cream is below -15°C[5°F]. Therefore ice cream may melt if it is stored in the door rack. • Store ice cream in a cold place or set the temperature control button of a freezer at strong position.

Refrigeration is too strong.

I Check the position of temperature control button. • Check if refrigeration is strong in whole area of the refrigerator or partly near the outlet of the cooling air. If it is strong in whole area, set the control button at weak. If it is strong only near the outlet of cool air, keep food (especially damp foods and easily frozen foods) away from the outlet.

Vegetables are frozen.

I Check the vegetables storage. • If vegetables are stored in the refrigerator shelf or chilled drawer instead of vegetable drawer, they will be frozen. Set the control button at weak if they are also frozen in the vegetable drawer.

The food stored at inside of the shelf freezes even the control button is set at MID.

I Check if food is stored near the outlet of the cooling air. • The temperature at cooling air outlet is always below the freezing point. Do not store food near the outlet of the cooling air as it block the air circulation. Do not block the outlet. If the outlet of the cooling air is blocked, the refrigerator compartment will not be cooled.

3. Odor and Frost
Problems Checks and Measures

Odor in the refrigerator compartment.

I Explain the basic principles of food odor. • Each food has its own particular odor. Therefore it is impossible to prevent or avoid food odor completely when food is stored in the completely sealed refrigerator compartment. The deodorizer can absorb some portions of the odor but not completely. The intensity of odor depends on refrigerator conditions and environments.

I Check the temperature control button and set at strong. • Clean inside of the refrigerator with detergent and remove moisture. Dry inside the refrigerator by opening the door for about 3 or 4 hours and then set the temperature control button at strong.

Frost in the freezer compartment

I Explain the basic principles of frost formation. • The main causes for frosting: - Door was left open. - Air penetration through the gasket - Too frequent door opening. (parties. etc.) - Hot foods are stored before they are cooled down. The temperature of freezer is -19°C[-2.2°F]. if temperature is set at MID. If hot air comes into the refrigerator, fine frost forms as cold air mixes with hot air. If this happens quite often, much frost forms inside of the refrigerator. If the door is left open in Summer, ice may form inside of the refrigerator.

Frost in ice tray.

I Explain basic principles of frost formation. • When ice tray with full of water is put into a freezer compartment, the water evaporates. If cool air fan operates, the moisture attached to the jaw (protruded part) of ice mold will freeze and form frost. If warm water was put into the ice mold, the situation will become worse.

I A door does not close properly. I Explain how to store foods • Condensation forms when refrigerator is installed at damp area. you must stand it upright for 6 hours before plugging it in. I When should the power be connected ? • You can connect the power immediately after installation.) I When the refrigerator compartment door is opened and closed. Be sure to store wet foods in airtight containers or securely covered in plastic wrap. it can be hotter due to lack of heat radiation. • When the refrigerator compartment door is opened and closed. I Door opens too easily. If there is not enough space to dissipate heat. forming can be easily done . • There is a magnet in the gasket so it closes securely without a gap. (If the refrigerator is used for a long time. fresh air comes into the freezer compartment and moves up and down the freezer compartment door. Please install a refrigerator in a well-ventilated place and leave the clearance between refrigerator and wall: I Explain that the hole is for releasing gas. This causes the door sticked closely to the refrigerator in a moment. There are small holes in the plastic liner of some parts of the refrigerator. • A small hole in the door liner is for releasing gas during insulation materials lining work. These holes allow plastic parts to be injection molded and vacuum formed by allowing air bubbles to be expelled. This mixed air shall be compressed and increase the internal pressure when door is closed. • When the door is open. • If the refrigerator is not properly leveled. Small holes in a door liner Electric bills are too much. I Refrigerator compartment door does not open properly. • The radiator pipes are installed in the refrigerator case and partition plate between the refrigerator and the freezer compartment in order to prevent condensation formation. warm open air comes into the compartment and is mixed up with cool air. it will open smoothly. and wet foods are not stored in the air tight container or wrapped. you could damage the compressor. With a releasing hole. Adjust the level using the leveling screws under the front of the refrigerator. . If you operate the refrigerator before the oil has had a chance to settle. it may feel hot but it is normal. They also allow foam insulation to be pumped into cavities where air bubbles may build up. Condensation on the inside wall of the refrigerator compartment and the cover of properly vegetable drawer.101 - . if the refrigerator was laid flat before or during installation. Particularly in summer or after installation of refrigerator. the doors will not close easily. This allows the refrigerant oils to return to the sump in the compressor. When is the power connected? Door does not open properly. The front side should be a little bit higher than the rear side. door is frequently opened. However. Checks and Measures I Explain the principles of radiator. I Explain that the hole is to allow the air to escape when vacuum forming plastic parts and pumping foam insulation into cavities. the freezer compartment door moves up and down. Others Problems The refrigerator case is hot. NOTE! Holes and releasing gas appear to be very crude and would not be acceptable in a manual.TROUBLE DIAGNOSIS 4.
