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, for the 1st 6 months it popped/ cracking sound every 30-45 minutes. It sounds like hitting a hammer on an anvil very loud. After dealing with Samsung on the door swinging seal not working, (they tried to blame it on the delivery people). finally they gave in and repaired it. Also the ice comes out and sticks together, I lowered the freezer temp. per the manual. no change. After reading all the complaints about the ice maker on line we just hope we can move soon, and leave the fridge.

25.5 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with Internal Water Dispenser in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 614.

I loved this fridge when we first got it. It is huge. One problem was the ice maker would not stop making ice. I didn't think much of it. I just got side tracked until the freezer FROZE my entire freezer this week and everything in it. The things we had to toss from freezer burn. It is not even 7 weeks old. I contacted Samsung directly. They just replaced the freezer gasket. He thinks it is a seal issue with the bottom freezer and air is getting in. What makes me not happy is not only the loss of groceries, but the repair man was just at another house with the same fridge and same exact problem. He things it is a seal issue. He was nice, and cleaned up. Not happy with having a brand new fridge and already having it serviced. My last fridge from Home Depot was a Whirlpool was only 4 years old when the freezer froze up, but I got 4 years. This is nuts!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase We bought this fridge in December 2015. We had three repairs in the last nine months. Water and ice will stand in the bottom of fridge. The same problem happened again this morning. I walked into the kitchen and couldn’t figure out why water was all over the floor. We are now waiting on our 4th repair. We have the Asurion warranty. They have a no lemon policy... but say the exact same part has to be replaced before they will replace. Of course they have tried to repair (the same problem) with different parts every time. I will be contacting Home Depot about this. Very disappointing. If you purchase, make sure you purchase the extended warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be sure to check your refrigerator temp with a gauge! I doubt all the positive reviewers have checked their refrigerator temps with a temperature gauge. And I doubt they realize that the temp they see on the display is the set temperature, not the temperature inside. If they did put a temp gauge inside, they would be horrified to see that even if they set the fridge to 34F, the inside temp regularly stays around 41F, and even goes up to 55F with the fridge turning on and cooling too late. Meanwhile, all the food inside is rotting away. I exchanged the fridge for another one after I discovered it was not cooling properly. And the exchanged fridge has the same exact behavior. Temps regularly stay around 40's, even if I set the temp to 34F. The display doesn't show the temp inside, only set temp. The lowest both fridges went down to is 37F, that is it, no lower. This entire line of Samsung fridges are either flawed or I got two bad ones. Now I'm trying to decide to do another exchange or just return it. This is my last Samsung fridge purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for price This fridge was the best we could get at the price purchased. We didn't have any space constraints so a larger fridge works. We love the ice maker although a bit noisy. You can hear the ice cubes drop into the tray. It is nice to have all interior ice maker and water dispenser, no need to worry about kids playing with exterior components. The water dispenser is pretty strong. Fill your cup with water first then get ice otherwise the jet stream from the dispenser splashes all over the place. There is no drip pan for the water so heed the interior label by the water dispenser. I had to install the spacers on the doors myself since the middle door hinge didn't close properly. If the middle door hinge on the french doors don't close the fridge leaks cool air into the room, tested it with a flashlight inside the fridge; you can see the light shine thru if the middle door hinge doesn't close. We like the LED lighting. These are just few things to consider when you make your purchase.

Replacement unit had bad gasket seal around freezer door allowing ice to form. Refrigerator door also had a bad seal and allowed condensation to form. Third unit seems to be acting OK. No drips, (yet) and seems to seal OK. Let's hope all's good. Response from Samsung has been very good and did not have to fight to change units instead of service calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, Flexible and Top Rated Samsung French Door Refrigerator We *love* our new Samsung French Door refrigerator. Selected based on a top rating in Consumer Reports for features, reliability and energy efficiency this refrigerator is a delight. We purchased a new home in January 2014-the kitchen had been updated, including all new Samsung appliances (dishwasher, microwave, and gas range), all EXCEPT the refrigerator. Samsung as an appliance company was new to us...so we waited to see. After 5 months of enjoying the other Samsung appliances for their functionality, performance and aesthetics, we were ready to replace an old white side by side refrigerator AND found the matching Samsung French Door refrigerator was top rated in Consumer Reports and a perfect fit for the space in our kitchen AND Home Depot had a fabulous price-it was an easy decision. We ordered on line, the delivery company Home Depot contracted with was professional, called ahead as promised, arrived on time, and did a fast and careful install of the new refrigerator. They also removed/disposed of the old side by side as we had requested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fridge, very quiet I bought this fridge about a 2 weeks ago and I'm very pleased with it!. I love the fact that you can open only one door at a time (unless you need to open the deli drawer). It's very quiet. The only time I hear it is when it drops ice cubes from the ice maker. I did not want a fridge with water and ice in the door since I hear those are always the first things to break, so I love the water dispenser inside the fridge. The water filter is between the two crisper drawers, so it's easy to get to and replace when necessary. I'm amazed at the amount it holds...both in the fridge and in the freezer. The light makes it easy to see everything and the door alarm let's my teenager know it's time to shut the fridge doors! And, I did not plan this, but the sides of the fridge (which are not stainless steel) match the gray color in my kitchen! Love the way it looks and performs.
