To start your new LG refrigerator, follow these simple steps:
1. Plug in the refrigerator: Locate the power cord at the back of the refrigerator and plug it into a grounded electrical outlet. Make sure the outlet is compatible with the refrigerator’s power requirements.
2. Set the temperature: Look for the temperature control panel inside the refrigerator. It is usually located on the upper rear wall or on the front control panel. Use the up and down buttons or the dial to set the desired temperature for the refrigerator and freezer compartments. Refer to the user manual for specific temperature recommendations.
3. Allow the refrigerator to cool: After setting the temperature, give the refrigerator some time to cool down. It may take a few hours for the refrigerator to reach the desired temperature. Avoid opening the doors frequently during this time to maintain the cooling process.
4. Organize the shelves and compartments: Before placing any food items in the refrigerator, take a moment to organize the shelves and compartments according to your needs. Adjust the shelves to accommodate taller items and use the designated compartments for specific food categories.
5. Load the refrigerator: Once the refrigerator has cooled down, you can start loading it with your food items. Ensure that perishable items are stored properly and that the refrigerator is not overloaded, as this can affect its cooling efficiency.
6. Monitor the temperature: Keep an eye on the temperature display or controls to ensure that the refrigerator is maintaining the desired temperature. If you notice any issues or fluctuations, refer to the troubleshooting section in the user manual or contact LG customer support for assistance.
Remember to consult the user manual that came with your LG refrigerator for specific instructions and guidelines. It contains valuable information about the features and functions of your specific model.
