MAJOR FEATURES  
Beverage Station (optional)  
Twin Cooling System  
• You do not have to open the main door to access  
frequently used food in the extra refrigerating com-  
partment. This saves time and money.  
• The refrigerator and the freezer have two evapora  
tors. Given this independent system, the freezer  
and the refrigerator are cooled individually as  
required and are, therefore, more efficient. Food  
odor from the refrigerator does not affect food in  
the freezer due to separate air flow circulation.  
Deodorizer  
• Reusable deodorizer keeps the refrigerator air  
fresh and odor free.  
Multi-Flow System  
CoolSelect  
• Cool air circulates through multiple vents on every  
shelf level. This provides even distribution of  
cooling inside cabinets to keep your food fresh  
longer.  
ZoneTM Drawer  
(optional)  
• User can select  
Soft Freeze, 0 Zone,  
Quick Cool, Cool,  
Thaw items.  
Door Alarm  
• A beeper reminds you if the door is left open.  
High humidity for fresher food  
• You can keep food, fruit and vegetables fresh for  
longer because your refrigerator supplies highly  
humidified cold air. This can be up to four or five  
times more effective than a normal refrigerator.  
Energy-saving fridge/freezer  
• Power consumption is kept to a minimum by distrib-  
uting cool air separately to the refrigerator and  
freezer.  
Faster cooling times  
• The power freeze function allow you to freeze food  
more quickly.  
Abundant supply of ice and cold water  
• The ice and water dispenser provides ice and cold  
water at any time.  
This operation instruction covers various models.  
The characteristics of your appliance may differ  
slightly from those described in this manual.
