About - Samsung RB195AC[PN]

The Samsung RB195AC[PN] is part of the refrigerator test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, bottom freezer refrigerator models like the RB195AC[PN] are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Temperature performance:
This combines results of tests measuring the accuracy of initial temperature settings along with how well a model 1) kept optimum temperatures in the refrigerator and freezer at the same time; 2) kept temperatures even throughout each compartment; 3) kept temperatures constant despite changes in room temperatures; and 4) maintained set temperatures even with very high room temperatures.

Energy efficiency:
This reflects electricity consumption (based on our tests) per cubic foot of measured usable storage space. For example, two models with the same energy cost per year may have different energy efficiencies -- the unit with more storage space being more efficient.

Noise:
Noise level was measured when the compressor started up and during steady running. Subjective judgments by a panel of listeners supplemented our noise-meter readings.

Comment:
Loved the look, and I needed a cabinet-depth fridge. Delivered in late May 2012. On December 21, 2012, it simply STOPPED working. Motor was running, ZERO chill. Everything melted. Pacific Sales repairman came out, said it needed a new compressor and computer board. Waited weeks for the parts. He installed, and it worked again for TWO days. Then stopped again. Waiting right now for him to return. But I no longer trust this unit, and want it replaced. My advice is TO BUY ANY AVAILABLE EXTENDED WARRANTY from the retailer. You'll need it.
How long have you owned it:
