Summary: Less than a year into owning this disposable appliance, we had to have all the coils in the freezer size replaced. Now, two years in and the refrigerator side has stopped cooling. Shame on Samsung for making such crap and shame on Sears for partnering with them. This unit was designed to make the service departments money. Nothing more.
Summary: I have a Samsung Refrigerator which is just over 5 yrs old and needed to be repaired out of warranty. The freezer door on the actual refrigerator never really closed properly as I always had to give it an extra push to make it seal properly. After a while the problem seemed to get worse as the door at times would reamin slightly open causing food spoilage and high electric bills. I will admit I am getting older as I am a retired on a fixed income and age is settling in.
Summary: This fridge looks beautiful and appears to be an excellent buy for the price. I have had mine for a year now and it does what it is supposed to: freezer section keeps things frozen, fridge section keeps things cool. Unfortunately, it has a most serious flaw in that it makes these loud cracking/popping noises several times an hour. The website claims these noises are "normal" and a result of expansion and contraction.
Summary: I would give this product and its manufacturer a negative rating if possible. I've owned this unit for approximately 8 months without any issues. One day about a month ago, the freezer decides to stop working. Since I was within my warranty, a service technician was sent to my home to fix this unit, free of charge. He replaced the fan in the freezer and also the LCD display since a light was not working on that as well.
Summary: I have this side by side, and I have to say it's the worst refrigerator/freezer every! Worked fine for the first 12 months. "Just outside the warrantee, figures" Not only is it the worst appliance I have every owned but Samsung is the worst when it comes to standing by their products. I had a Kenmore side by side with ice maker/water dispenser for 23 year never had one thing go wrong with it, totally loved it.
Summary: I bought a Samsung refrigerator and the freezer door broke within two weeks. We opened the door no more than 5 times. Customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. We bought a package of four Samsung appliances and two of the four did not work.
Summary: I have owned a Samsung fridge and have had nothing but problems with it. Samsungs I have found out have notoriously had cooling problems especially with the coils freezing. Don't just take my word for it, look up class action on Samsung fridges. I tried repairing this fridge twice with appliance repair companies to no avail. Once your fridge stops properly cooling, it more than likely will cost you less to buy another brand.
Summary: The compressor makes a loud noise when it runs and is very noticeable. It's noisy. We called out a technician to fix it. He ordered a new "panel" that he said was rattling. They came and changed it and guess what? It's still noisy. The compressor is just a very low grade part and there is no sound insulation around it. Did I mention it's really noisy? I'll be surprised if this thing lasts one year.
