    Had problems in 10 month’s. Terrible service

    I bought this model 10 months ago. Moved into a new home. Worked fine and all of a sudden it started tripping the circuit breaker.

    Took a week to get Samsung to send me a technician. The person was inadequately trained to troubleshoot. He finally recommended we change the outlet regardless of the fact that we showed him it trips the circuit breaker regardless of the outlet we plugged it into.

    What a total waste of time. Will never buy a Samsung refrigerator in my life.

    Don’t Love it.

    Design flaws galore. Our 10+ year-old fridg died so i went with this one because of the 10-year warranty.
    My issues:
    -It’s hard to clean,
    -the freezer drawer doesn’t really pull out that far making it awkward to get food out of it,
    -The door with the water/freezer dispenser is just weird
    -when The ice was working, if would drop ice after you were done making a mess
    -water filter on the freezer is already on and its 2 months old. WT????

    What I like
    – 10 year compressor warranty
    – it’s big
    – it looks nice closed and you can use magnets

    I don’t recommend it

    Serious design flaws with shelves, drawer, filters

    There’s a lot to like about this refrigerator, and for that you can read some of the other reviews. My problem comes with several serious design flaws on the inside:
    1. When you change the water filter, you need to turn off the water to the entire house — or at least, the kitchen — to replace it and create a proper seal. Otherwise, it leaks all over the place no matter how “correctly” you put it in.

    2. Somehow, some way, pieces of vegetables and some water made their way into one of the vegetable drawers in between the two nearly sealed sides of the drawer (think of a dual-pane window where a leaf gets in between the panes). How the heck did it get in? More importantly, how do you get it out? From what I’ve seen and attempted, you can’t.

    3. My biggest problem: Somehow, something spilled on the shelf above the fruit and vegetable drawers. The liquid soaked into the edges of the shelf, beneath the plastic frame. The only way to clean it is to take the entire shelf — roughly 5 feet x 2 feet in size — out of the unit, then find a way to remove the glass from the plastic frame without breaking the clips that hold it in place. Not the easiest of things, but it’s possible, if you’re careful (and you get to experience the same joy putting it back together).

    But the nightmare is removing the shelf itself. You have to press on a pair of plastic clips that are less than a half inch in length, perched on the sides of the water filter — if they’re there, which they aren’t on our unit — and carefully lift the entire shelf up and out of the refrigerator. Remember those clips I mentioned when you were trying to clean the glass? They’re the ones holding the glass in place inside the refrigerator. If you’re not careful, you break those clips as you pull the shelf out. You now have to worry about the glass falling out if you ever have to move the shelf again. But at least you no longer have to remove the entire shelf if you merely want to clean the glass.

    There are a number of videos showing how to remove the shelf from this very model, and in them the filter dispenser and the shelf mount are different than what we have. The instruction manual is useless — there’s no mention of shelf removal — and tech support from Samsung had no clue how to fix the problem, since it wasn’t one of the standard difficulties people encounter.

    4. Lastly, the non-stick, no-fingerprint coating is already coming off the tray under the ice maker/water dispenser. We’ve only had the refrigerator for 4 months. What’s it going to look like in a year or two?

    This was a long winded explanation, but it just emphasizes the frustration from all of this.

    I purchased this model as an exact replacement of a previous model. I noticed there was no freezer door bin, I called customer service and they said it doesn’t come with the fridge.

    Very noisy and worthless ice maker

    This is a great looking appliance but it is very noisy. It is constantly makIng popping and crackling noises. The owner’s manual says these noises are normal and caused by temperature changes but geesh this is ridiculous. I’ve never had a refrigerator make so much noise but this is my first Samsung and probably my last. The ice maker is worthless unless you use ice everyday. The ice maker is located in the refrigerator section. If you don’t use it daily, the ice melts slightly and fuses together into a huge chunk.

    Doesn’t compare to the Whirlpool that it replaced

    I’ve had this fridge just over a week. The icemaker is extremely loud … I can hear it regardless of where I am in the house. The water dispenser is dripping (and yes I’ve ran thru lots of water to clear any air out of the line) so placed a service call on my very first day of ownership. I read in another review about the door flap/sealer hitting the other door and find if you open the left door too slowly it doesn’t retract all the way. I will have the service tech take a look at that when he comes for the water dispenser issue. In my opinion this fridge is very cheaply made compared to the Whirlpool I had, but it was a higher end Whirlpool so not sure that it’s fair to compare.
