Are the gaps between the fixed shelves tall enough to store beer bottles?

Several people have talked about the difficulty of storing tall bottles - I assume they mean gallon milk and 1 litre bottles. But can we store beer bottles without removing shelves?

Answer: 
Most shelves are not fixed. I have rearranged several shelves and made compromises. I keep beer standing up in a bin others might use for vegs or fruit and this would be cooler than in the door. Frig shelving also will easily accommodate beer. I just wasn't willing to give up that space.

Answer: 
Thanks for the question. The middle and top shelf in the RF217 can be adjusted, and there's a maximum of 9-1/2" between the bottom shelf and the highest setting on the middle shelf. Of course, beer bottles can vary in size, but there are a variety of bottles that would fit on these shelves. Taller items can also be stored on the door.

Answer: 
When manufacturer's list width, they do this based on a home owner (builder, etc.) measuring width between a wall and a cabinet counter-top (or between two cabinets). If you look at a lot of newly built homes, and even many older ones, many people place a refrigerator with the front doors (including the hinges) protruding out in front of the cabinets by an inch or more.

Answer: 
Thanks for the question. The RF197ACRS does not have "zero radius" hinges which would permit the doors to open without the need for additional clearance on the sides. The specifications sheet and User Manual provide the clearance recommendations for this model, which include 1" on each side, and 2" on the top and rear. The clearance enables the hinges to clear so the doors can open 90-degrees, and also Read More

The clearance enables the hinges to clear so the doors can open 90-degrees, and also provides air circulation so the Refrigerator can operate efficiently.
Please note that if either door is opening into a wall, additional clearance will be needed for the handle to clear.

For this reason, the manufacturers do not consider the addition width required for the doors to fully open, as in many homes, they open with plenty of clearance outside (in front of) the counter-tops. In your situation, opening the doors would increase the width at the front side of the units by at least a half inch. If you open both doors of one unit, this is a full inch of width to consider. If, for some reason, you might have to open both doors of both units, at least two full inches might be required. Read Less

Answer: 
Thanks for the question. You could install two of these RF197ACRS Refrigerators next to each other, but should leave some room between them to allow the doors to swing open without making contact to avoid dents and scratches. It's also important to have sufficient air flow above, behind and on the sides.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by We love this Fridge! It replaced the original electric/propane refrigerator in our motorhome. This residential type is so much better quality, performance and appearance. We can finally have ice cream stay cold now! May 13, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Buy. Reoccuring Leaking Water keeps pooling into the crispers and bottom of fridge. Had repaired once and same issue repeated. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by glad we took a chance There were several reviews that warned of insufficient shelf space for taller items. Thank goodness we took a chance and purchased this refrigerator. There is adequate space for drinks. We can fit a total of 2 gallon jugs and 2 one-half gallon containers in the bottom side shelves. This unit is sleek yet relatively spacious. We love it! October 20, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Product Ever Purchased this refigerator a little over a year & 1/2 ago. Have limited depth space & needed a slim fridge for my kitchen. Fridge is just out of warranty & I have experienced a problem with the fridge not cooling. Evaporator coils are building up with ice & not able to defrost causing warm fridge. Have spoken with Samsung executive offices to request reimbursement for the unit. Stay clear of Samsung for a fridge. Apparent flaw designs with Samsung Fridges July 17, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SERVICE BULLETIN!!! Just writing this to advise owners that there is a service bulletin for the problem of water accumulating in the crisper drawer. It's an issue with the defrosting tube. Samsung will not automatically advise you (they didn't for me). Bulletin ASC20140703001. Samsung will provide the replacement kit free of charge. August 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is the best fridge I ever bought I purchased this fridge online so I never really saw it other than photos. I have a small kitchen and needed a counter depth unit. When it was installed we could not believe how beautiful it was. Fit in like a glove, and the interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. I have never seen lighting inside like it has. not your standard light bulb like all of my other units have had. It runs great and quiet. If I had to say one thing negative about it is the freezer being so cold. I have it on the highest setting which is 8 degrees. That is I guess a good thing, but when I try to scoop out ice cream I have to let it sit out for a while. December 17, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do Not Buy this product This was a great product until a couple months after the warranty expired. There are known issues with the defrost cycle and the icemaker. The service technician who came to my house 4 times told me that Samsung is aware of major problems with this model. If you buy it, be sure to look it over carefully before your warranty period ends and DO NOT IGNORE ANY PROBLEMS, no matter how small they seem. Mine started collecting water underneath the crisper drawers, which would freeze. Then the fan unit in the back of the fridge compartment would freeze solid - you could see ice hanging out of it. Please be aware of these issues and research PROBLEMS with this unit - NOT reviews. Everyone likes it while it is new. I did, too. January 21, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by No Off Switch Just purchased a new RV with this refrigerator installed. Strangely, it doesn't have an off button Samsung suggested I leave it on all the time with food stored in it or turn it off by using the RV battery cut-off switches. While that suggestion is workable when I store the RV, it is less desirable when I simply want to disable the fridge and have other things on the RV working. The refrigerator is run through a 2000 W inverter when not on shore power. I could, of course, turn off the inverter, but the fridge would then continue to run until it depleted the batteries, not a desirable outcome. Temperature on this unit varies from 38F to 42F when set at 34F. I have attempted to get a service tech to look at this for a week but repeated calls to Samsung have produced nothing but a series of ridiculous questions such as "Are you leaving the doors open?" and "Do you have too much stuff in the refrigerator?"
