After too many repairs on the old fridge, when it stopped cooling after eight years, we looked for a new one of a different make. Their repairman can go back to sleep. The biggest fridge I found with no water/ice in the front door was this Samsung. We like the French doors, the shelf layout and the digital temperature displays. The door bins that hold gallon jugs of milk are handy. I think the bottom freezer drawer is a more energy efficient design than the side by side and top freezer types. This is our first ice maker, and it does work OK. But it will fill the bin too full and spill ice chunks behind the freezer drawer. We have to watch the ice level and use the "ice off" button fairly often. This issue was not serious enough to deduct a star from the rating.
We bought this refrigerator and after only 5 years the refrigerator compartment started freezing over. We now have to disassemble and defrost the thing every 2 months. After about 2 years of this we decided to call a service tech. NO ONE WILL WORK ON THIS THING!! They all say it isn't worth fixing. We are going to buy another brand as soon as we can gather the money. I don't want anyone else to waste money like we did.
So far this has been a great fridge. We have had it for a month now. The space in it the french door is unbelievable i had room for everything in my old fridge and then some. Most of that fit in the door bins. Each of the veggie drawers will hold 18 cans of Bud light. then a case of cokes on the shelf with plenty of room left. Gallon milk jugs and juice bottles fit in the doors. The drinking water is inside but easily accessible and you can really tell the difference in the taste. The only issue I have is that the ice maker when it gets full starts to dump out the back and into the lower section of the freezer.
I like the way this refrigerator looks and works except for the terribly loud noise it makes when it runs. I hope Samsung will rectify the problem soon.
What a great size fridge for the price. Love the look, the storage and the interior design with the water dispenser. Looks great with my black stainless oven.
Ice maker is a little slow. All in all, we love it.
This product is all that Samsung said it would be and more. It has a fantastic appearance in our kitchen and really stands out with its design. Unlike our old fridge we cannot even hear it running.
We are very pleased with it and can't wait for our next Samsung appliance to be delivered next week to complete our kitchen. Thank you Samsung!
Very well lit with lights and very spacious. East to you buttons across top front.
