    Great Features but not enough ice.

    Comments about Samsung 25.5 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Platinum:

    We really like the design. The ice maker is working but the quantity is insufficient. We have to get a bag of ice from the store once a week.

      Comments about Samsung 25.5 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Platinum:

      If you don't mind the popping sound every hour, this fridge is for you. I read it online but hoped I didn't get one of those fridges and I did. It is pretty annoying and loud enough to think that there is someone in the house. The unit is pretty and the interior looks nice too. A nice feature is that the stainless steel finish is magnetic on the front.

          While running, it makes noises inside the refrigerator. The ice maker is also noisy, and the water dispenser did leak. The doors in the freezer when rolling make a noise.

                I had a similar refrigerator before but it didn't have the same amount of room on the doors and interior. Checked consumer reports and found this is a highly recommended product. Thought it would cost more than I paid. Was pleasantly surprised and am even more impressed with my new refrigerator. Awesome product!!!

                  Comments about Samsung 25.5 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Platinum:

                  I really love this fridge. It feels so spacious and I LOVE having the water on the inside of the fridge. It doesn't take up room in the door like most fridges and leaves the front with a clean, sleek look. The French door design is the best as well! I grew up with a side-by-side and it always felt like you could never fit anything in it! Especially when you had a tray or leftover pizza box to squeeze in there. This fridge is the exact opposite. It's super spacious and accommodating. The shelves move very easily and the one that folds in toward the back to fit in tall bottles, etc. is a lifesaver. The LED lights really light the whole thing up nicely as well so it makes finding things in the back a breeze. And by having a freezer drawer it seems like things fit nicely and don't slide all around. With the side-by-side I always felt like stuff was on the verge of falling out on me. I love the look of stainless steel, but the only down side is that it does dent pretty easily. I tried to be very careful knowing that was the case, but we still managed to get 2 small dents in it while owning it less than a year :( Disappointing, but to be expected with a stainless front. Fingerprints aren't too noticeable on it right away. They will show after a while, though, so make sure to get a nice stainless cleaner to buff it back to its beautiful shine. Overall, I'm very happy with this fridge and would recommend it to anyone! The reason I picked it in the first place was because of its high ratings by Consumer Reports!!

                  I have owned the French door bottom freezer refrigerator model RF261BEAESR for 2 years I purchased it new and have enjoyed all of it's featured , but do have a problem with a very loud popping sound, but have gotten use to it. The most annoying problem is the ice maker , when you slide the freezer opened the ice falls behind the drawer , other then shutting the ice maker off and on manually, does anyone have a suggestion to fix this annoying problem?

                    Purchased this fridge - rf261beaesr/aa in July. It's now August. The features are all nice and the fridge does as expected. Really like many things it does. Nice size, good color, keeps things cold. There is an "added feature" however that isn't mentioned. An extremely loud popping noise. Samsung claims it is normal expanding/contracting as the unit cools etc. Did I mention it's loud? Yes, like someone snuck up behind you and banged something in your ear. You will literally jump. It's very fun! We wait for it to scare the dog so we can watch her shake. Samsung stands by their product - just not too close in case the noise pops. Good luck.
