Connecting Side by Side Refrigerators to the Water Supply
In order to operate correctly your unit must be plumbed in according to the instructions in the user manual.
Full installation instructions are included in the user manual for each model and these should be adhered to. Customers should be advised that Samsung does not accept responsibility for damage resulting from incorrectly connected appliances and all calls to rectify such faults will be fully chargeable.
Method 1 - units with an external filter
The pipe from the filter is on the right-hand side and is connected to the valve as shown. The other pipe on the left is the water supply from the valve up to the ice maker and this should not be disturbed. The grey hose is the water supply that leads to the chilled water tank inside the bottom of the fridge compartment. This should also be left alone.
Method 2 - units with an internal filter
On no account should the pipes behind the front plinth be directly connected to the water supply: doing so will result in immediate flooding as soon as the water supply is turned on.
Depending on the model there will be one or two hose connections behind the front plinth. The RSG5 with the in-door ice-maker has two hoses (as shown) and all other models have one. Note that they are joined black to black and white to clear.
In all cases at least 3 litres of water should be drawn off to purge all the air from the water tank. Also the first few batches of ice may result in small cubes being produced.
