A great fridge in a great size

This fridge is a perfect size for a couple or small family. Not only does it look nice, but it also works well and may be the quietest fridge I've ever owned. I have never noticed it making strange noises or being loud. Show details ·  1

Didn't last long enough

Worked fine for about 4 years, then fridge started being not cold enough. Defrosting helped for about half a year. Now it pretty much stopped cooling the fridge at all, however freezer still works. Can't really understand what's wrong as the compressor and fan work, but just no cold in fridge compartment anymore. No ice on the grill either. Show details

Unsatisfactory

My fridge is only 4 years old but the freezer liner has come away from the wall and is completely broken. It’s out of warranty but the repair man recommended by Samsung said he thought they would replace the fridge as he’d never seen one so bad. However Samsung won’t replace it.

Terrible

Do not buy this fridge It started making humming noises just after we bought it. The noises are getting louder. It drives me to distraction. Sometimes when it is running it makes popping a noise which sounds like it is trying to turn off but can't. It is always running and rarely turns off. Purchased 2021. Show details

Once the warranty is over it gets crappy

Bought this fridge in 2017 august, ongoing issues it doesn't cool, every time There is ice buildup near the deodorizing filter, and doesn’t cool.. we need to turn off the fridge for 5-6 for it to melt away and then it starts running again. Due to covid we did not want technician to come home. Called Samsung and was just advised it's out of warranty. And the pcb and fan replacement will cost $450 better off getting a new one.. Reading from the reviews many are facing the same issues.. would never buy Samsung brand again, 3-4 years is the life of a fridge ? If you are buying this fridge, please make sure to get a 5 year warranty somehow. Show details

Keeps Food Fresh Longer

The fridge and freezer are working as expected. I especially like the "Twin Cooling Plus" technology as I noticed my vegetables (spinach, herbs, tomatoes) do indeed keep longer than they did in my old fridge. My only complaint would be the noise. It's been a few months now since I got the fridge, but it is still making "settling in" noises. I need to call Samsung about it, but haven't had the time. Show details ·  1

Fridge will break down in 3 years, ice will build up and won't cool anymore

Bought this fridge 3 years ago, and now it doesn't cool anymore. There is ice buildup near the deodorizing filter. Called Samsung and was just advised it's out of warranty. Reading from the reviews looks like Samsung fridges are not of great quality, would never buy Samsung brand again. Fridge makes a lot of noise, but we got used to it. If you are buying this fridge, please make sure to get a 5 year warranty somehow. Show details

Early Gremlins

The fridge looks awesome with a surprising amount of space inside both the freezer and the fridge - a bit like the Tardis really.
For the first month it worked beautifully and then the noise started. A slight humming noise gradually increased to a loud drone sound within a week, reminding us all of its presence as we try to sleep at night. yes, this newcomer is needs attention STAT.
The good news is we have the 5 years Gold service warranty and have been told it shall be fixed or replaced straight away.
If not for the stowaway gremlin that came with the fridge, this rating would be at least a 4, maybe higher if right after my morning coffee. Show details

Nice But Noisy

Bought this fridge one week ago and have been woken several times every night by the noises it makes when it runs and also by the slapping/popping noises. Not happy at all, should have kept my 30 year old Kelvinator! Started making these noises from brand new! Can anyone explain as these noises ?, can be quite loud and definitely not how a new fridge is to perform ! Would not buy this brand again. Show details

Keeps freezing over

Freezes over after a month of operation, then pools water at the bottom. Can only be resolved by thawing outside the house for 24hrs, but then the whole cycle starts all over again. Apparently endemic to Samsung fridges. Do not buy. Show details

Worst product I have ever bought

It can't cope with Australian summers. Has constantly frozen up big-time since I bought it, hence food doesn't last long. The fridge needs constant defrosting and ice removal. I have nothing good to say about it at all.

And couldn't get hold of the company to try to fix it.

Great little fridge

The fridge is pretty much perfect standard size. I like the features where you can turn the freezer into fridge or just put all things into the freezer and turn off the fridge when you go on holiday. Fridge sometimes make bubbles noise but they say it's completely normal. The downside is that you have to leave space around it or it goes hot outside like it needs to breathe.

The size is great

The fridge is in a great size for my family and it's so quiet! Price is great as well! And it has the movable ice maker which i didnt know they have it. It was like a surprise and the delivery men were very friendly, just love my new fridge!

The fridge temperature is jumping from 9 to 14, never stay under 5. Even when the thermostat were set of on 5. The freezer is working fine.
What seems to be causing the temperature in the fridge doing this?
