Comment:
This unit runs all of the time! It is noisy. At first I just thought it was a different sound than the refrigerator I had for 20 years! But it is getting louder and louder. The unit is >2 away from the walls in fact it is noticably sticking out into the entry of my kitchen! The repairman said the refrigerator is working great and it is the fan running and is normal. Urg....I can't believe that! I would not recommend this product. Thinking of replacing it after 6 months!

Comment:
so we bought this refrigerator about 5 years ago. We change the water filter as it is recommended and like the water in the door feature. About 2 years into it the ice maker started getting temperamental- would make ice for a few days and then nothing. Now it is months before it makes ice. after seeing water on the floor we realized that water was accumulating under the crisper drawers and either spilling out or freezing. We also had an incident where the water line developed a hole and water was leaking out under our hard wood floor which caused it to buckle. So after recently calling samsung - make basic impression is they just don't care and its perfectly acceptable for a major appliance to require repair in under 5 years. My parents had a refrigerator for 30 years that still worked when they finally got a new one. Can't say that I would bother spending a lot of money on any appliance anymore with the expectation of it lasting such a short time
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
