4.5 years and stopped working... really?

  • Summary: We loved this refrigerator when we purchased it. The amount of space was great and it was our first french door fridge; we will never go back to a side-by-side door model. The ice maker stopped working around 2 years (still under warranty) so we got that replaced. Then at 4.5 years, the ice maker, then the freezer, and then the fridge all stopped working within a week. Took 4 repair trips replacing parts and 5 weeks later to determine it was unrepairable. Really!!!

sansung 3 door 29cu. ft. fridge

  • Summary: We have had this for 2 years now and can say it does a fair job but has its issues. Possible the loudest icemaker on the market.(scares the cat every time it dropes ice into the bin). have to mention also that the ice maker is very slow to recover. When dispensing ice you have to be very carefull as ice wants to go everywhere. There is an issue with the ice forming under the deli tray that has been going on since we purchased it.

Find somethhing Else

not happy, AJ Madison

  • Summary: in order to get Ice you wait and wait and . . .and oh here it comes . . . . no , no , no more. better use a glass with a big opening other wise have a carpet to catch the Ice that misses the glass. Oh don't let anyone open the fridge door otherwise you'll be waiting again. same thing with the water. The water filter, open your wallet doesn't last long and really slows down the flow.

Samsung Not Good

Disgruntled, AJ Madison
30 June 2012
  • Summary: Refrigerator works okay except icemaker does not produce nearly as much ice as my past fridges. I ordered the fridge 1/31/09 and because I wanted white rather than the stainless everyone else was ordering at the time there was quite a wait for it to be built and shipped to Lowe's. I waited just under a year after the DELIVERY date to my house to call Samsung about an extended warranty only to find out I could not buy one because the one-year warranty, which began on the...

  • Summary: We bought this refigerator 3 months ago. The evaporator has failed. The repair man said he has replaced several of these on this model. Avoid it.

Great large fridge

wally, AJ Madison
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I really like this fridge. It is several cubic feet larger inside than the GE profile unit it replaced though it doesn't take up much more space in the kitchen. The modern interior design is perfect for entertaining as it easily accommodates party trays and large format wine bottles. I've even been able to brine a 25# turkey in a container on the bottom shelf. It is quiet and efficient too.

dark interior and ice everywhere!

Anonymous, AJ Madison

  • Summary: We bought this because of it's size and the modern look. After we got it home we realized that the leds in the top of fridge don't do much when the shelves are full of food. The water and ice in door are too high for kids to hold their cup up to=ice/water all over my new wood floors. The freezer is really deep but again not kid friendly. The product itself is good but not for families w/kids.

French doors a must

Bob, AJ Madison
24 June 2009
  • Summary: All our other new appliances were Electrolux, but we had to go to Samsung to find the deep tray that would hold either a large cake or a large party tray. The initial setup instructions for ice-making were strange, but we followed the directions and it makes perfect ice. (Chill/run refrig for at least 24 hours before beginning initial ice-making procedure). Great lighting, nice controls, great finish. Goes VERY well with all other Electrolux appliances.
