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
We have the Samsung Model RF261 BEAESR, and it does scare us when the ice brakes and drops down into the ice bin. It took many times for my body to be calmed down and to expect the loud pop, followed by loud dropping of the ice. Otherwise, the frig has served us well over the past few years since we purchased it new... knock on wood...

Is the black finish smudge free?

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.

Customer Reviews

25.5 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with Internal Water Dispenser in Stainless Steel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 525.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Fridge couldn't be more pleased... I was concerned about the reviews that said this fridge made excessive noise. Simply not true it runs nice and quiet, love that it has separate compressors one for the fridge and one for the freezer not found in other brands except for higher end models...great fridge great price looks really cool in my kitchen with more room inside than i expected. went from a side by side and now have to go shopping to fill it with groceries because of all the extra space inside... very pleased with the delivery haul away of old fridge and installation and setup was easy and done in less than 20 minutes... seriously happy that I bought this fridge.

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).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value We've had this refrigerator for about a month now and I am very impressed by how well it works. Even though it is 50% larger than our old one it uses less electricity. I haven't experienced any of the noise issues that others have mentioned. There is a faint sound when it is running, but unless your house is absolutely quiet you won't hear it. The french doors with freezer on the bottom is a great layout, making efficient use of space and providing easy access to everything. It also keeps a very steady temperature and the freezer can get really cold if you want. The LED lighting is a nice feature too. There are no dark corners, not even in the freezer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not very smudge proof I reviewed Samsung and LG and determined Samsung had the best for the money. I specifically chose the platinum version and had to special order it because it says it is smudge proof. I have not owned a stainless steel/stainless look fridge before but don't think I would do it again. I find myself cleaning this several times a day. As a focal point in the kitchen, I wish I would not have been fooled by the marketing. Overall the fridge is decent. I do like the French doors and the alarm alert when the doors are open too long. Not sure I would seek out this specific fridge again but it will work, just have to invest in cleaning supplies.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Popping noise makes this product difficult to live with From the first day this refrigerator has made a popping noise that sounds like it comes from inside the cabinet. The pops are sporatic and sometimes come in a series and can be rather loud or soft. We can hear most of these pops from our bedroom at the other end of our house. If you are in the kitchen when a loud one occurs, it will startle you. A Samsung Repair Specialist, who was knowledgeable about Samsung refrigerators, came the other day, but other than adjusting the temperature in the freezer, he just explained why these pops were happening. However, he basically led us to believe it could not be fixed and we would have to live with the noise and get use to it.

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 1 out of 5 by from Trash!!!!!!!!!!! I have had to have this refrigerator worked on 6 times since i bought it 3 yrs ago. this involves taking all of the food out of the top of the fridge and shelves and drawers and let the fridge defrost for 2 days before you can remove the rear panel o the fridge because its stays frozen. What a hassle and it cost me $200 per call. I also had to have the icemaker replaced cause it stopped working after a year when i bought it that cost me $300 and I had to take everything out of the freezer for that. tell anyone who want's to buy a samsung fridge to reconsider!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LOUD POPPING NOISES This fridge makes LOUD popping noises (probably metal or plastic expanding/contracting). Samsung says the loud popping sound is "normal". Give me a break! A sound that shoots you out of your chair is "normal"?! Samsung has used cheap materials in manufacturing and won't man up and fix the problem. I’ve found dozens of other customers with the same issue (one person said a repair guy FINALLY found the issue after 3 house calls. It was a back plate behind the heat exchanger that was flimsy metal). The solution Samsung gave me was that I call a service center. If they find a problem the service center can bill Samsung, if not, it's out of my pocket. I've had this fridge for 3 months. Thanks for the great product and service Samsung (yeah, that's heavy sarcasm).
