How do I activate or de-activate Vacation Mode in my refrigerator?

Last modified : Mar 07. 2018

Activating or deactivating Vacation Mode is done differently across several models.


To check whether Vacation Mode is ON or OFF, look for the symbol  on the control panel. If the symbol is lit up then Vacation Mode is ON, otherwise it is OFF.


Some models would require you to press and hold a button for a certain period of time until the Vacation Mode symbol appears. The example below shows how to activate or deactivate vacation mode, by simply pressing and holding the Child Lock button for 3 seconds.

Other models would only require one press of a button.

When this mode is activated, the temperature in the refrigerator compartment will be automatically set to 15°C while the freezer runs on its normal state, which inturn saves power while still keeping food items frozen.
