Will magnets stick to the front of the fridge?

Asked by: Frisco
Yes, they will. They will also leaves scratches if not removed very carefully. This black stainless scratches very easily.

How do I get the ice bin out so I can empty it? Can't find my manual. don't even know if I got one.

Asked by: Grizzlyone
You have to push up on the front bottom of the ice maker and pull back really hard like you are going to break it. It's a really lousy design!!

24.6 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Steel is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 742.

Purchased this to replace a Samsung R267LASH side-by-side about a month ago. I wanted a french door style as I use he fridge a lot more than the freezer and being 6' 2" tall, constantly bending down to access the lower areas of the fridge was a pain. After comparing three different models by Samsung, Frigidaire, and GE, based on price and customer reviews, the Samsung appeared to be the best value with most positive reviews. The Fridge is very bight and open and includes a full width drawer for deli, eggs, etc. I like the sliding divider and have mine set up about 70/30. The fridge has two crisper drawers - logically - one for fruit and one for veg. I would like to have had a larger veggie draw than fruit - but it's not a huge deal. The right side door has ample gallon size storage, but the left side has considerably less to due to the ice/water dispensers. The shelving design is somewhat inflexible; the combination of a fold-up shelf on the left and half-depth shelf on the right side seems to disrupt storage options. While the freezer was less of a priority, I quickly realized that the dual-bin design ultimately means a lot less storage than the side by side due to the space occupied by draw mechanisms and wasted space above and below the top sliding bin. Now that the freezer is stocked, it's very hard to see what's in there as both areas have to be stacked in layers so it's not possible to what's underneath. Additionally, there's only one vertical divider, so it's not easy to keep different sized packages organized across the width of the drawers. To help with this I bought some stackable storage bins - alas they turned out to be too tall to stack, but did help to create discreet storage areas. Overall I'm pretty happy with it- the fridge is a great charcoal finish which is refreshingly different from the traditional Black/White/Stainless steel options. This give the unit a lot of presence in the room.

This fridge is garbage. Had it for two years and of course it starts falling apart at the one year mark when the manufacturer stops caring. My buddy has the same fridge and has all the same issues. Here is the list of everything that has broken: -Motherboard fried at 1 year -Left door flap lost spring -Ice maker stopped working -After fixing ice maker, needs to be defrosted once/month -Ice supply is useless if ore than one person in your house likes ice -Doors no longer seal unless you stand there and push on them after you close -Ice dispenser leaks, so we have to keep a cup there to catch the water Bottom line... I like Samsung, but don't buy this fridge.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BUYER BEWARE....I have this same exact came with our new house that we bought in July ... BUYER BEWARE....I have this same exact came with our new house that we bought in July 2015. These refrigerators have a design flaw that Samsung refuses to acknowledge. It causes the Twin Cooling Evaporator in the cabinet to freeze up with ice, which after enough ice has accumulated, ends up causing the cooling fan blades to come in contact with the ice causing a very loud rotational noise. My refrigerator has a manufacture date of January 2015 and in a year and a half that I have owned it I've had to address this problem three times...and it's not covered under warranty! Now, I'm looking for a new refrigerator to replace this one and will never purchase any appliance made by Samsung again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Nice, but loud Bought 'identicle' fridge (but regular stainless, not black stainless) 3 yeats ago. Loved that fridge, but sold it with house so I bought another. Love the layout but quality has gone down. New fridge is much louder. Compressor has different speeds. At top speed (very rarely goes into top 'speed') there is a loud 'rattle' that can be heard a few rooms away. Repairman came, looked at it, tightened some things loosened others (worse rattling rarely happens and, of course, did not happen when he was here). After he left, it was just as loud as before he came. During THAT loud episode, I opened back panel (just like he had done) and determined the loud noise is not a loose part rattling, it's the compressor itself! Also, there is random but loud "thumps" that are easy to hear a few rooms away (previous, identical' fridge from 3 yeats ago made none of these noises.) I can certainly live with the new, loud noises. I'm just shocked that a brand new, expensive fridge is so loud at times (thumps several times a day, the worst compressor noise ['3rd gear'?] happens several times a day only when you first plug it in, then I assume compressor only goes into '2nd gear' which is still louder than you'd expect.) HELPFUL TIPS from repairman: fridge is designed to dissipates heat from side walls of fridge! If you run your hands along sides, you can feel warm spots. THAT'S why fridge needs 2 inches of free space on either side. There is a small 'flap' that swivels and seals gap between french doors when you close them. The one and ONLY thing "Eco Mode" does is stops heating the flap (otherwise, the flap is heated to prevent condensation).

It was so nice to finally replace our old, scratched, white side-by-side unit with this one - the extra width is helpful when you have large items like sheet cakes or party platters to store. Overall, I'm really happy with this particular item, which looks nice and just like it does in the picture. The stainless steel has a nice, sleek shine to it and looks to be good quality. The sides of the fridge are not stainless - they are gray - but that's fine for me, especially since all sides are magnetic, so I can hang things on the sides. My only real complaint is with the ice dispenser in the door and the fact that even when it's set to "cube" mode, quite a bit of crushed ice still manages to come out, even if that setting was not recently used. Other than that minor issue, I'm a happy customer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst ice maker !! Refrigerator/ freezer is good but ice maker is the worst. Ice maker freezes up causing it to clog and stop making ice until you remove the tray and beat the frozen clog. What a hassle. Also we have wood flooring and the freezer causes condensation to drip on the floor. Would not recommend this to a friend. Front display controls not easy to see or use. Since then i have bought LG products. No more Samsung !
