Rated 5 out of 5 by What a Beauty! This is a large, well designed refrigerator with all the special bells and whistles that one hopes to have one day. 1/24/12
Rated 1 out of 5 by buy another brand There was not much info on this refrigerator when I bought it. Only the Samsung site had reviews and they were all good. Wished I had waited because the Samsung site obviously is not objective. Things that I like. The French door design makes it easy to get things in and out quickly. Looks nice. Keeps food fresh. Large size. Now the bad. As mentioned on other sites the ice maker is loud. Loud enough that we can hear it from our bedroom with the door closed at night. Our bedroom is across the house 3 rooms away. At first it was alarming since we were not used to the noise but we have gotten used to it. Ice maker comes unseated and won’t produce ice. Opening the door and reseating it solves this. Ice get stuck in the shoot and backs up. You have to open the door and poke at the ice while depressing the ice lever to clear it. Invariably whatever glass you have is not large enough and the ice spills all over the floor. Items fall behind the freezer trays and can hold the freezer door open. We found our freezer half thawed and have covered in ice when this happened. Apparently the door alarm does not work for the freezer door, or not when it is only slightly ajar. Problems we have had with the fridge in the first year. Two of the door bins have broken, and fallen off – leaving our 29 cf fridge with 26 cf of usable space. The bottom trays from the right and left doors are broken and the upper right tray is showing signs of failing. The plastic that holds the bin on the door is thin and brittle. Cracks form which cause the shelf to fail. A gallon of milk and some salad dressing bottles prove enough weight to cause the failure. The french design of the fridge is such that the only place you can put milk and other taller items such as a pitcher of juice or 2 liter bottle of Coke is the door. The thin plastic of the bins in my opinion is a design flaw and will not hold the weight causing the bin fail and fall off the door. It is common enough that they sell replacement bins on Amazon. The bar seal on the left door is malfunctioning. When you close the right door 1st the bar on the left door hits the right door when closing. At some point something will break entirely. The right vegetable draw gets stuck open. It appears to get wedged due to the rollers getting out of the runner. You have to use a combination of force and wigging to get it closed. Samsung customer support was neither sympathetic nor helpful. They told me my fridge was out of warranty based on the SN despite having been purchased 10 months ago. The Samsung Execute Response Team told me if I found my receipt they could help me. We do not have the receipt and the store we purchased it from has closed. At 51 yrs old this was the most expensive, largest, and I had hoped the nicest fridge I have owned. Unfortunately much to my disappointment it has been one of the worst appliance purchases I have made. The design which causes failure of the door bins and other issues, whether and inconvenience or complete failure of the fridge to operate at intended is unacceptable for an appliance of this class. If you decide to purchase I would suggest you get an extended warranty, keep your receipt handy, and cross your fingers. 1/8/14
