Install Your French Door Refrigerator

To properly install the refrigerator and prevent any accidents, follow the instructions below carefully.

Selecting a Location

Select a location that:

  • Has a solid, level surface without carpeting or flooring that can obstruct the ventilation

  • Is away from direct sunlight

  • Has adequate room for opening and closing the door

  • Is away from any heat sources

  • Has enough room for maintenance and servicing

  • Has a temperature range between 50°F (10°C) and 109°F (43°C)

• If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker, make sure there is extra space at the rear of the refrigerator for the water line connection.
• If you plan on installing the refrigerator next to a fixed wall, make sure that the refrigerator is at least 3.75 inches (95 mm) away from the wall so that the door can be opened.

Leveling the Refrigerator

Before you start:

  • The refrigerator must be leveled on a flat, solid floor. Failing to do so may cause damage to the refrigerator or physical harm.

  • Make sure the refrigerator is empty.

  • Open the freezer and remove the lower basket.

  • For your safety, adjust the refrigerator so that the front is slightly higher than the rear.

Leveling

  1. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a notch in a leveler (left or right).

  2. Turn the leveler clockwise to raise the refrigerator.

  3. Turn it counterclockwise to lower the refrigerator.

  4. Repeat on the other side.

Adjusting the Door Height and the Door Gap

The height of a door can be adjusted using the provided snap rings, which come in 4 different sizes (1 mm, 1.5 mm, 2 mm, and 2.5 mm).

  1. Check the height difference between the doors and then raise and hold the door with the lower height.

  2. Insert a suitable-sized snap ring between the door and the hinge.

    • Insert only one snap ring. If you insert two or more snap rings, the rings may slip out or make a rubbing noise.
    • Keep the snap rings out of the reach of children and store them for future use.
    • Do not raise the door too much. The door can touch and damage the top cover.

Installing the Smart Home Adapter

The Smart Home Adapter is sold separately. If purchased and installed, the refrigerator can be monitored and controlled remotely using a mobile device.

  1. To remove the adapter cover, press towards the front of the refrigerator and pull upwards.

  2. Insert the Smart Home Adapter into the adapter port in the correct orientation.

  3. To replace the cover, insert the front area of the cover first, and then fit the cover into position.
