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.
Asked by: Robert
Yes, but they seem to be becoming less frequent and less noticeable. I've owned mine for about 2 months, and the popping noises were also present in my 2011 K*nmore Elite fridge. They were pretty loud at first in the Samsung, but perhaps the materials have gotten used to expanding and contracting, given a bit of time. Working from home, I'm in and out of the house all day, and I notice the popping maybe once every other day.

is the water coming out from RF261 model iced-cold?

The RF261 model has internal water dispenser, is the water coming out iced-cold? The reason is I already using one of those pitcher filter on the water, I can place it inside the fridge to get iced-cold. But if the water dispenser coming out is already iced-cold, I have more choice.
Asked by: port
No, it's slightly warmer. If it was as cold as ice, it would in fact, be ice. Ice is made of water.

25.5 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with Internal Water Dispenser in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 400.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great refrigerator, much quieter than my Kenmore side by side whose compressor failed after only ... Great refrigerator, much quieter than my Kenmore side by side whose compressor failed after only 5 years. With that said, after getting it home and set up, I thought that the ice maker may have been having issues as the production was not what I was expecting, but after a little research, I learned that typical French Door models only make about 3.5 lbs of ice per day (approx. 115 cubes at 1/2 oz per cube). Because I'm an engineer, I of course counted the cubes after the first 24 and 48 hours and actually determined that the ice maker was slightly outpacing the 3.5 lb figure. However, if you consume more than 3.5+ lbs of ice per day, you may want to get a refrigerator with dual ice makers (i.e. one in the door) or look at the Whirlpool models as I hear that they have the best production rate out of all of the french door style refrigerators. For myself, I am totally fine with 3.5 lbs per day as after the first 72 hours the entire ice bin was topped off and has stayed that way ever since. The only other thing to mention is that the internal water dispenser is recessed into the side of the refrigerator and is contoured to accept glasses that are roughly pint sized (i.e. the kind of glass that you would expect to be served a draught beer in at a restaurant/bar.) If you routinely drink water out of big gulp cups, you will most likely have difficulty getting it to fit into the contoured recess where the dispenser switch is located and thus will not be able to fill your cup. Overall though, for the money, this refrigerator is definitely a good buy. It also comes with a 1 year full warranty on the entire machine, 5 year full warranty on the closed refrigeration system, and 10 year limited warranty (parts only) on the compressor. You will be hard pressed to find a comparable refrigerator with similar warranty at the same price point.

We've had this fridge for about 4 months now and it is great. Temp controls and lighting are super, nothing hanging down to rob space. Controls are located on the top front of the case inside the doors, easy to use and intuitive. There is a freezer light, but it is built into the bottom of one of the doors, consequently if you have the fridge doors open and the freezer, you get no light in the freezer. The loud noises mine made were directly a result of fluctuating water pressure on the ice maker line, when the washer stopped filling there was noise, when we used the faucet there was noise; pretty easy to isolate and fix. I put a check valve on the ice maker line and all noise stopped, except for normal ice maker noise. The only reason I rate it 4 stars is that the ice maker is designed in a way that rakes ice cubes off the back of the freezer drawer when you open it. I leave them there in the inside bottom of the freezer and they eventually evaporate without melting, but it's noisy when it happens (which is every time) and it irritates me. Still, we say this is a great fridge and love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fridge I love this refrigerator. I bought it to replace a Maytag side by side which is still working great and now resides in my garage. I hated the side by side because I never could find what I was looking for and usually something would fall onto the floor while I was searching for something lost i n the back. The refrigerator is pretty quiet except when the ice maker is doing its thing which is pretty normal. The water and ice in the door is a convenient feature but in my opinion the ice maker should be in the freezer. I have read many complaints about the ice makers in the door and besides they take up a lot of space in the refrigerator. I love the ice maker in the freezer, I open the freezer drawer and grab ice for my glass and I will either use the filtered water on the inside of the fridge or I just get it from the faucet (we have great water.) I love the led lighting both in the refrigerator and in the freezer. I can find anything at a glance. The clear door bins are great. I can find what I'm looking for without having to lift up every jar or bottle. The pantry is wonderful. I store my deli meats, cheeses, butter and other miscellaneous little packets of ketchup or hot sauce which were always getting lost in the side by side. The retractable shelf is great. I just push it back to store tall items. Genius! The finish is really nice and easy to clean. The exterior will hold magnets if you wish. I would have loved the black stainless refrigerator but who can afford to buy all new appliances. Anyway, I love the sleek smooth finish. I did a lot of research and comparisons of refrigerators before deciding on this model. I changed my mind several times, going back and forth between the more expensive models and this model and I soon realized that the minor differences, made a major difference in the price tag. I knew I wanted twin cooling to keep the refrigerator odors out of the freezer and visa versa. I don't think you can go wrong with this refrigerator. It is a great value and trust me I have already done all of the comparisons and hours of shopping. I highly recommend this fridge.

Absolutely loved everything in this fridge from space to color finishing, no regrets at all paying 100 more for the black stainless steel, no finger prints, loved having hiding water dispenser and ice maker without kids messing with dispenser all the time!!

I have had this fridge for about two months and it is super spacious! I previously had a similar Samsung french door fridge with water and ice through the door, but I sold it with my house. We owned it for five years but really didn't use the ice and water too often, so this new model seemed like a reasonable trade-off considering the price. Turns out to be MUCH more space in the fridge after moving water and ice out of the door. There is still chilled water, but on an interior wall and ice is in the freezer. Shelves are easy to move and door storage easily accommodates your largest items. Water filter is easily accessible. Temp and operational displays are plainly visible. One caveat; this fridge is noisy. My last one made virtually no noise. I read reviews and didn't understand what folks were trying to say, but believe it! There is like a motorized whirring that is fairly loud and runs a majority of the time. If you can deal with that, then this fridge is fantastic! However, if a droning noise would bother you, then keep looking. For us, this is wonderful refrigerator and I would buy it again.

We haven't hooked up our icemaker and water dispenser yet so I can't comment on those features. The inside of the fridge is plenty large and the movable shelves are great and easy to move. I love the deli drawer that you can adjust the temp on. We have the black stainless and the look is great while also keeping kid fingerprints off. There is one thing I'll mention that kept me from rating this 5-stars. The fridge has the most irritating popping sound. After googling it, we found out it's a common problem but requires a technician to fix. A quick fix but apparently difficult to get someone out to fix. I would suggest reading the google reviews and see if this would keep you from getting the fridge. Other than the popping, I love the fridge. [Now I need to update the rest of my kitchen!]

It works as expected and fits perfectly in are space. There is however the loud popping noise that I read about in other reviews prior to our purchase. It really doesn't bother me it sounds like ice dropping a little louder than usual. We have only had this refrigerator 3 weeks so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product So far we really like this product. The only complaint is the particular stainless that is used shows fingerprints really easily, the functionality and overall quality is great.
