Customer Questions & Answers

Does the refrigerator make the loud popping noises mentioned in many reviews?

Many owners give the Samsung a low rating due to very loud noises coming when the defrost cycle starts. The service center apparently does not care nor offer any solution. I am wondering if it happens on all Samsung models, especially the RF261BEASER.

It moans and groans now and then.

Does it have drinking water dispenser?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes-I also hesitated about this because some of the on-line/store product literature is not as clear as it could be-there is an internal water dispenser just inside the left hand door of the refrigerator. You press the glass against a button to dispense-and the filtered cold water is dispensed fairly fast (much faster than from our 8 year old LG French Door "through the door ice/water dispenser).

25.5 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator in Stainless Platinum is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 319.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from piece of junk I bought this product 3 years ago after I read all the good reviews. So far I have had to fix the water dispenser twice. The refrigerator will not keep the proper temp. We have had to pay 100.00 dollars every time the repair man comes out to fix it and he has done nothing but throw parts at it. (3 times) I have thrown away more food in the last year because of spoilage. The last time the repair guy was at the house he ordered the parts (another computer board) and said I could put the on myself. We have a 22 year old GE in the basement that still works. I have just bought another refrigerator and waiting for it to be delivered. (not Samsung).

I purposely didn't get the version that had the water/ice dispenser in the door because I've read they encounter more problems then those without. There is a water dispenser on the inside of the left door and that is all I need. As for space this fridge is about the same size as my previous side by side door (fridge on one side, freezer on other) but feels ten times bigger. It's also much better lit. Some people have complained about noise of ice maker and ice overflowing bucket. Yes there is some noise when it drops ice into your bucket then for a couple seconds you can hear water flowing into ice making area to reset but the whole process is all of 5 seconds and doesn't bother me at all. The ice bucket has never over-flowed. The delivery guys were AMAZING! I was thinking either my front door or sliding glass door were going to have to be removed to get the fridge into the house. They used straps and easily climbed my deck stairs to the second (main) floor and simply slid the freezer door out, opened both fridge doors and curved the fridge through the opening. They then proceeded to hook up the new fridge remove all the protective plastic and hauled my old one away. Super quick and professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fridge for a great price After our more than a decade old Whirlpool fridge gave out, we decided to use the opportunity to upgrade to a modern fridge and wanted to go with a french door style. After an extended search we settled for this Samsung unit, which was also happened to be on sale. The unit was delivered and installed by Home Depot. So far, we are loving this unit. It offers plenty of space and despite what some reviewers have stated, it is not as loud as they claim. It is a machine people, so naturally they'll be some noise when it runs it jobs. Highly recommend this model. We have no regrets.

My refrigerator was purchased on Nov 18 and delivered on Dec 8, 2016, as I had requested. So far I have loved every feature, especially the CoolSelect Pantry with its three temperature settings. Of all the French Door units I tested, these doors were the easiest for me to open. The delivery man had to remove my front door to get the unit inside and was very careful in doing so. There is a slight ding in the lower right door which I did not notice until the following morning when I was cleaning the outside. It looked like it might have left the factoy in this condition as the total outer area was fully saran wrapped. Because I was within the 48-hour window in advising Samsung, they are sending someone to replace the door. Their Customer Seervice response was excellent and I could not ask for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of stone Ages We previously owned the Cream colored appliances, came with the house when we purchased it. This Samsung refrigerator is quieter, easier to get things in and out of and stainless steel just looks better. We can get more groceries in it same size, better layout. Build quality is far above our whirlpool,a little loud its still running fit for the garage. ;-} With an open floor plan low noise level is key.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fridge I read the reviews about the noise but mine is quite. I love the extra room. I rated a 4 because I can't put gallons on the shelves just the side door. I have to look and see if that can be adjusted. I was warned to stay away from this brand but so far so good. I purchased a three year warranty for protection. Time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had got one sooner I needed to replace my old medium sized standard refrigerator and my daughter recommended that I look at a French door model. So I spent weeks reading reviews and product information until I narrowed it down to 3 or 4 units. I then took several field trips see them at the retail stores. After looking at them my decision was a Samsung French door. I chose the one that does not have the water and ice through the door because I needed the interior as large as possible. I am very impressed with the unit. I have only had it for 2 weeks but I really like the size and features. I especially like the design of the bottom freezer compartment. The drawer slides out extremely easy versus some of the other brands I looked at. The light levels in the unit are very bright which are welcome for these aging eyes. The unit is very quiet and does a good job a maintaining the set temperature. I also like the door alarm as I have two grandchildren living with me at present and they sometimes forget to shut the door all the way. So far I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this refrigerator to anyone.
