In addition, in order to protect the parts of the touch panel 12, the touch panel cover 16 is covered with the touch panel 12, and then finally joined through a screw 18.

In the configuration as described above, the touch panel cover 16 serves to support the touch panel 12, the touch panel cover 16 does not intensively support the operation button portion, the touch panel 12 By supporting the outer portion, the sensitivity of the operation button was lowered during the operation of the touch panel 12.

In addition, the need for a separate component such as the touch panel cover 16 which serves only to protect the touch panel 12 has caused a production cost of the product to increase.

The present invention is to solve the above problems, an object of the present invention is to provide a close contact between the control panel window and the touch panel without any additional parts for supporting and protecting the touch panel, and at the same time protect the touch panel To provide a control panel.

In order to achieve the above object, the control panel of the refrigerator according to the present invention comprises a control panel cover for forming a front surface of the control panel for operating the function inside the refrigerator; A touch panel installed at the rear of the control panel cover and provided with various operation buttons; A display provided at an upper portion of the touch panel to display a state of a refrigerator; And a control panel window surrounding the display and pressing the touch panel.

In addition, the control panel window is characterized in that it comprises a receiving portion for receiving the front projection of the display and pressing portion for pressing the touch panel in close contact with the control panel cover.

In addition, the upper portion of the receiving portion is provided with a holder for fixing the upper end of the display, the lower portion of the receiving portion is characterized in that the support portion for supporting the lower end of the display is provided.

In addition, the receiving portion and the close contact portion is connected by a connecting portion, the connection portion is characterized in that the screw fastening hole for coupling the control panel cover, the control panel window and the display is provided.

Hereinafter, a control panel of a refrigerator according to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

As shown in FIG. 2, the refrigerator 20 including the control panel 25 according to the present invention includes a door 22 that opens and closes the inside of the refrigerator 20 in which the main body 21 and the food are stored. A dispenser 23 installed at the front of the door 22 to supply cold water and iced ice from the inside thereof, and a control panel 25 provided at an upper portion of the dispenser 23 to set a temperature of the refrigerator 20 and the like. This is provided.

As shown in FIG. 3, the control panel 25 is installed at the rear side of the control panel cover 30 and the control panel cover 30 forming the front of the control panel 25 and the opening 24 of the dispenser. A touch panel 32 provided with an operation button for setting an internal temperature and the like is provided on the touch panel 32 and a display 34 for displaying a state of a refrigerator and the display 34 to support a touch panel ( 32 is provided with a control panel window 36 for close contact.

An opening 24 is provided in the lower portion of the control panel cover 30 for inputting a cup for receiving water or ice discharged from the dispenser, and an operation button for setting a temperature inside the refrigerator at the upper portion of the opening 24. The provided touch panel 32 is provided, and a display unit 34 for displaying a driving mode selected by a user through an operation button is provided on the touch panel 32.

The rear surface of the control panel cover 30 is formed with a protrusion 38 protruding rearward to fix the touch panel 32.
