To use your LG refrigerator for the first time, follow these simple steps:
1. Unpack and inspect: Carefully remove all packaging materials from the refrigerator. Inspect it for any visible damage or missing parts. If you notice any issues, contact LG customer support for assistance.
2. Clean the interior: Before storing any food, it’s important to clean the interior of the refrigerator. Use a mild detergent and warm water to wipe down all surfaces, including shelves, drawers, and door compartments. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean cloth.
3. Connect to power: Locate a suitable power outlet near the refrigerator and plug it in. Ensure that the power cord is not damaged and properly inserted into the outlet.
4. Set the temperature: Most LG refrigerators have a control panel located inside the fridge compartment. Use the temperature control buttons to set the desired temperature for both the refrigerator and freezer sections. It’s recommended to set the refrigerator temperature between 35Â°F and 38Â°F (2Â°C and 3Â°C), and the freezer temperature between 0Â°F and 5Â°F (-18Â°C and -15Â°C).
5. Allow time for cooling: After setting the temperature, give the refrigerator some time to cool down. It may take a few hours for the unit to reach the desired temperature. Avoid opening the doors frequently during this time to maintain the cooling process.
6. Organize and store food: Once the refrigerator has cooled down, you can start organizing and storing your food. Place perishable items, such as meat and dairy products, in the coldest areas of the fridge. Use the shelves and compartments to keep your food organized and easily accessible.
7. Maintain proper airflow: To ensure efficient cooling, avoid overpacking the refrigerator. Leave some space between items to allow for proper airflow. This will help maintain a consistent temperature throughout the fridge.
8. Clean the exterior: Regularly clean the exterior of your LG refrigerator using a soft cloth and mild detergent. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals that may damage the surface.
