Service warranty section

Any changes or modifications performed by a 3rd party on a finished product is not covered under Samsung warranty service

Safety Caution section

Samsung does not recommend 3rd party modification, therefore Samsung is not responsible for safety issues that result from 3rd party modifications.

SAFETY WARNING SIGNS

SETTING UP THE REFRIGERATOR

Once you have performed the following steps, your refrigerator should be fully operational. If not, check the power supply and electricity source. If you have any questions, contact your SAMSUNG

service center.

Place the refigerator in an appropriate location with reasonable clearance between the wall and the refrigerator. (refer to installation instructions in this manual)

When the refrigerator is plugged in, the interior light should come on when you open the doors.

Set the temperature control to the coldest temperature and wait for an hour. The freezer should get slightly chilled and the motor should run smoothly.

Once the refrigerator temperature is sufficiently low, you can store food in the refrigerator. After starting the refrigerator, it takes a few hours to reach the appropriate temperature.

MAJOR FEATURES

Twin Cooling System

• The refrigerator and the freezer have two evaporators. Given this independent system, the freezer and the refrigerator are cooled individually and are, therefore, more efficient. Food odor from the refrigerator does not affect food in the freezer due to separate air flow circulation.

Multi-FlowSystem

• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every shelf level. This provides even distribution of cooling inside cabinets to keep your food fresh longer.

Xtra SpaceTM

• Vertical room next to the ice maker in the freezer provides space for pizza etc.

Door Alarm

• Beeper reminds you that the door is open.

Xtra FreshTM

• Optimized humidity control keeps vegetables & fruits fresh.

Deodorizer (on some models)

• Reusable deodorizer keeps the refrigerator air fresh and odor free.

CoolSelect ZoneTM Drawer (RS265B/RS267/RS269)
