Stay far away from this and all Samsung refrigerators. I had this exact model and it only lasted me 6 years. Less than a year in the ice maker became useless as it would freeze over and become a large block of ice. You would have to defrost the thing to get it working again. Google the issue and you will see.

Just over a week ago the refrigerator would not go below 48 degrees. Ends up the refrigerant system had a blockage. They use a sealed flammable system and fixing it would run around $2k. Google this issue as well and you will find it's a huge issue. There are currently class actions suits against Samsung for these and other issues.

I went to Home Depot to get a new fridge. I saw some new Samsungs have a 10-year warranty on the sealed system. So I looked the model up on Amazon and it had a whopping 50% 1-star reviews. Many of the reviews cited the same issues as my 6-year-old fridge. Nice to see that Samsung just keeps pumping out the same flawed systems.

Samsung needs to stick to TVs and Cell Phones.

Same with LG Fridges. They advertise a 10 year warranty on the compressor... but they don't tell you that after 5 years, you're responsible for labor costs which is $120 just to get them to come out and diagnose... and a flat rate of $250.

We bought a $2500 fridge. Compressor went out 5 and 1/2 months in. Got them to repair it, and the repair lasted less than 9 months. Compressor died again. Each time I lost about $300 in food.

2015 model - anything older than this year is flawed and 9/10 will develop condensation in the ice maker. There is a pending class action lawsuit. Reason why they are clearing these out. Same as Costco's 1800 special running now.

So you're saying that the new 2019 models are different?

We're looking for a fridge is why we ask. The new 2019 models have a built in water pitcher that keeps itself full (the wife loves this feature but I'm worried about reliability!)

No matter what refrigerator one buys, it's important to consider an extended warranty. Lowes has the best prices on their extended warranties. Best Buy has stopped selling the five-year.

Single drawer freezer, no quick access... not the same features... But do like that it does not have the bulky ice maker inside the fridge area.
