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
Nope, the only "popping" i hear is when the ice is dropped into the bucket. It's nothing too loud.

What is the difference between the RF260 & RF261?

Answered by: bobbylou
Date published: 2017-11-25

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.

It's very roomy inside and I love the deli drawer. Everything is easily accessible and my back is happy I don't have to hunch over to grab things I need. We bought this refrigerator for the size and style and were delighted to find it had interior water which we now use frequently. I don't think the reserve tank is huge, so the water isn't always cold, but it tastes great! It is very quiet. I have yet to hear it make ice and we've had it for about a month. I am very, VERY happy! Especially since it seems everyone has something bad to say about every refrigerator.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product does not work correctly Have owned this Samsung refrigerator for right at 2 years. Since purchasing it new, the freezer section has had numerous problems. We have had 7 service calls and it is still not fixed. The ice maker has been replaced twice, yet the cubes freeze together after a day or two. The packages in the freezer cabinet become coated in frost and they wind up stuck together. If not for an extended service policy, this would have been a financial nightmare in addition to having to chisel our frozen food and ice cubes apart. Our Samsung washer and dryer, purchased at the same time as the refrigerator, have also had the need for several service calls. In our case, it was a mistake to purchase Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IN LOVE with this fridge I decided to buy stainless steel appliances to upgrade the look of my kitchen. I found this samsung french door fridge which I absolutely LOVE. It has so much room! No joke, I fit almost everything in my previous fridge (which wasn't tiny by any means) in just the doors of this fridge! So much room for all kinds of food! I love that it comes with the water dispenser and it was a great value! The LED lights are like walking into a party every time I open the fridge.The pull out drawer freezer is great, as well. So much room inside of there too! Beyond happy with my purchase!

Tech ordered new ones and they came with defective finishes as well. Trying to exchange for a new one or get customer service of any sort with Samsung or Home Depot has been impossible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space I love that there is such more space than my side-by-side, and I don't feel "cramped" when I'm trying to put things inside! Also, like that I can see everything that I have in there without any obstructions!
