The ice maker from HELL.

Wished I had waited because the Samsung site obviously is not objective as I posted a similar review there and it was never made public.

The Samsung fridges should definitively not be on the recommended list but put on the "do not buy" list.

Bought this during last year black Friday at $1599!! I guess I don't have the right to complain at that incredible price! I have been using this for a month. So far so good! I have read numerous compliant about this fridge on Bestbuy and other website. Yet, I still risked and bought this model (coz I like its size and look). I believe either I am lucky getting a good one. Or, others did not do what it's suppose to do. Per Lowes technician's advice, you gotta dump the 1st 2 gallon of water in order to avoid dripping. Also, after 24 hrs, you should dump the 1st bucket of ice cubes as well. I did those and I don't have any problem.

Also, if you feel the fridge is not cold enough. Press 'Power Cool' or 'Power freeze' for 3 secs...and adjust to the desire temp...something like this. Hope this will help the others! This is a nice LARGE fridge!

I am very big on Samsung...We now had the RFG297HDRS for almost 3 weeks. Our previous fridg is also a Samsung side by side.
Pros:
1) love the fridg....roomy fridg section
2) LED lighting
3) look and feel

Cons:
1) Not holding temp correctly. Tech was out today and they are replacing the temp sensors. Hopefully this will help.
2) Got eggs? Normally we store our eggs on the top right shelve on our side by side. The dozen standard size egg carton does not fit on the top door shelve of our new refrig. I thought that was annoying. We actually had to put the eggs on the regular shelve.
3) buzzy sounds when power cool is on. The tech checked the compressor, fans, condenser and was unable to find the issue. I just happen to touch the back of the fridg near the freezer section and the sound stopped. I remove my hand and the buzzy sound is back. did that 5 to 8 times and it was consistent. We looked inside the freezer and the tech tighten a few screws from the inside back of the freezer and the buzzy sound is solved.
4) Ice maker: The good: Fast production and ice is great! The bad: Each time it pops an ice get ready to cover your head! You think someone threw a rock at your window. It is loud, really loud! My side by side is whisper quite when it comes to making and popping the ice out. This was just amazingly very loud and I am not over saying this. We have a large house and I can hear it all the way in bed across the entire house. At least your Samsung is making a statement that I just popped out ice ready for you...Maybe voice notification of a pop!

I am happy with the fridg. Hopefully once the sensors are replaced it fixes this temp drift I am facing. I noticed if I unplug the Refrig, wait 10 mins and turn it back on it will display the correct temp then later in a few day the temp drift. I had it set at 34F but the thermo is actually 48F inside.

There was not much info on this refrigerator when I bought it. Only the Samsung site had reviews and they were all good. Wished I had waited because the Samsung site obviously is not objective as I posted a similar review there and it was never made public. Apparent Samsung only publishes the positive reviews.

Things that I like.
The French door design makes it easy to get things in and out quickly.
Looks nice.
Keeps food fresh.
Large size.

Now the bad.

As mentioned on other sites the ice maker is loud. Loud enough that we can hear it from our bedroom with the door closed at night. Our bedroom is across the house 3 rooms away. At first it was alarming since we were not used to the noise but we have gotten used to it.

Ice maker comes unseated and won't produce ice. Opening the door and reseating it solves this.

Ice get stuck in the shoot and backs up. You have to open the door and poke at the ice while depressing the ice lever to clear it. Invariably whatever glass you have is not large enough and the ice spills all over the floor.

Items fall behind the freezer trays and can hold the freezer door open. We found our freezer half thawed and have covered in ice when this happened. Apparently the door alarm does not work for the freezer door, or not when it is only slightly ajar.

The wide drawer at the bottom for meats and cheeses gets stuck open. When you pull it open there is a mechanism that lifts the lid at the same time. This mechanism gets stuck so lid will not close and prohibiting the drawer from closing.

No matter what I try - the stainless streaks. We have all stainless appliances and I can clean them all spotless.

This is a really good refrigerator. Shop around and you can find these a thousand less than regular price...

External:
This refrigerator barely fits in my cabinet frame in my kitchen. My previous fridge (25cf side-by-side) had about an inch of space on the sides and about four inches from the top to spare. I measured the cabinet space prior to buying the Samsung but was sure surprised at the size of it when it was installed.

The back of the fridge is very flat... completely sealed off. It does not have space to tuck/hide away excess water lines. Samsung provides a flat three pronged wall plug (more on that in a bit) but the waterlines was a small issue for me. Initially, the Samsung fridge stuck out two inches more than the previous model. After coiling the excess water line and inserting the excess into a small hole in the drywall (with a nice wall plate) all is well.

I read in couple places online that the "motherboards" in these new high-tech fridges can get damaged by power spikes/surges and are extremely expensive to replace. So I ordered an inexpensive single surge protector (made by Belkin) and a flat extension cable to go with it.

[IMHO, the only real alternative (size and space) to this fridge are counter-depth refrigerators (priced a grand more).]

After two days, I noticed a lot of reddish/brown streaking on the stainless steel face. At first, I thought it was dirt from the cloth/sponge I was using to clean the surface. It looked like rust, smelled like rust (very metallic odor) and stained a white diaper cloth like rust. I quickly googled "rust streaks on my stainless steel appliance" and found a simple solution: baby oil/mineral oil. That took care of all the streaking.
