Comment:
We are so disappointed in this appliance. While I like the space that this fridge/freezer offers, it has been problematic since we bought it 3 years ago. The icemaker in the freezer falls apart constantly, the water filter renders the water dispenser useless so we drink non-filtered water. The shelves and trays have cracked AND now a sensor has broken in the freezer and the freezer is not working. PLUS constant marks on stainless steel front!! UGH! Never again! Buy a different brand!!!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Me and my wife were looking to replace our 2 year old whirlpool which gave us nothing but problems and there tech support is terrible so wont buy them again. The Samsung had everything we needs and works great. It keeps helps with our veggies they last a lot longer then the old fridge. Only complaint I have is the shelving should be able to go higher since cant use all the shelves with tall bottles one to 2 more notches would of been helpful

Comment:
Very noisy as ice builds up and the fan motor rubs on the ice. But worst problem is the full sheet of ice that builds up under the freezer drawer to the point were the freezer will barley open our close so that said I've had to defrost and reset the unit three times in 10 months.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
