      Comments about Samsung 24.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel:

      My previous refrigerator worked perfectly well for 15 years. I "upgraded" it and I am extremely disappointed with this Samsung fridge. In less than 3 years of use is already giving me problems with the ice bucket and the panel on the door. I would never recommend this fridge model to anybody.

          Comments about Samsung 24.6 Cu. Ft. French Door Refrigerator - Stainless Steel:

          First, the one drawback regarding the freezer. We purposely did not get the "through the door" water and ice dispenser, as we felt it took up too much space from the shelves in the refrigerator. I'm still happy with that decision, but the ice "catcher" could have been designed a bit better. It's basically a 3-inch tall box that catches the ice as it's made. Once full, it stops making ice (good - it's supposed to do that) but there's so much ice in the box that, when you open the freezer drawer, some of the ice cubes hit the top wall and get pushed out, falling behind the freezer drawer, never to be seen again! That, and that alone, is my one issue. Everything else about this appliance is great. Easy to understand display/control panel, accurate readings on the temperatures (we keep thermometers in the fridge and freezer...a hold over from the prior fridge we had). Shelves and interior are easy to clean. Everything is easy to see and get to. Nice, BRIGHT, LED lighting on the inside. Great job, Samsung! (Now...get to work on that ice catcher design!) :-)

                We like the French doors of the refrigerator. Bottom freezer is convenient. Freezer drawer must be checked to make sure it is fully closed. Side panel should have been made in stainless steel.

                  I like the overall model but wish there was a direct open ice bin in freezer to reach in for cubes. Also when I want cubes from outer door I get first water, then chips before full cubes. In addition , the stainless steel finish isn't stainless and needs constant attention. Thank you for asking, and if there's anything I should be doing please let me know.
