Samsung 24.7 Cu. Ft. 4-Door French Door Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water: Keep groceries chilled and accessible to the whole family with this Samsung refrigerator. The counter-height FlexZone drawer is ideal for storing snacks that kids can easily grab and enjoy.
Nice but be aware
Posted by: JRnC from: on
We are definitely liking the 25 cu. ft. French door but there are some items to be aware of for the installation.
The refrigerator may not fit through a 32" door even with the doors removed. That is because the rails for the drawer extend about 2" even with the drawer front removed. We had to remove the rails which is not covered in the owner's manual.
Unlike the refrigerators we have had in the past, this one has the air inlet and outlet for the cooling system on the back of the refrigerator. It cannot be pushed against a wall and needs at least 2" of clearance at the back. Since we need to have the refrigerator pushed all the way back in our kitchen, we had cut holes in the wall and install air grills into the adjacent room. That might not be possible for other installations. Don't let the installation people just shove it up against a wall or you will probably have poor cooling and high operating cost.
The owner's manual has very small pictures and appears to have some errors. The manual says the rails can be separated to remove the freezer door but we couldn't find the release shown in the manual and had to unbolt the door to remove it.
We think this is going to be a great refrigerator but be sure you can take care of the air inlet and outlet locations in your installation.

First of all, the overall space of this refrigerator is 24.73 cubic feet yet is only 32.75 inches wide which allowed us to fit it into the unusually narrow opening we have in our kitchen. Most refrigerators with this much space are 36 inches wide, so this was a HUGE selling point for me. The middle drawer (Flex Zone) is also a nice feature for which you can adjust the temperature independently of the main refrigerator. It has 4 different temperature settings which allows you to use it for a variety of items:
-- Meat/Fish (29°F)
– Cold Drinks (33°F)
– Deli/Snacks (37°F)
– Wine/Party Dishes (42°F) And it has an organizer that allows you to separate drinks from deli or whatever you choose to put into it. The water and ice dispenser in the door is great because it dispenses water and ice cubes quickly which my old refrigerator did not do very well. You can set the temperature of the freezer to between 5 °F and -8°F and the refrigerator to between 44 °F and 34 °F. There are also a lot of other nice features like power freeze, energy saver, an adjustable shelf for tall items, and you can turn off the ice maker to conserve energy. It also runs very quietly. Overall a great refrigerator that I could recommend to anyone.

Great refrigerator fantastic design and features
Posted by: Marky4425 from: Boynton Beach on
We just received delivery and the refrigerator cooled down quickly . Beautiful design and looks. Quality is great. Middle drawer is easy to use. I love the flip up shelf and the freezer is large. The size fits my condo perfect. Great deal over 1100 off the price on sale. I couldn't be happier. Looks great in my new kitchen!

So far I am loving this refrigerator
Posted by: Raleighgirl from: on
So, I had limited choices being I have a wall on one side so needed a 33" wide model to accomodate being able to open and close the french doors. I have white appliances but got a great open box deal on this SS one and I really am enjoying it and doesn't look as mismatched as I thought it would with my white stove/microwave. Ice/water in the door works great, it's quiet, plenty of room for everything and the middle drawer is awesome for quick items. I checked the temperature in each zone and it's exactly what it should be. Huge freezer and the little inside lip space is perfect for ice packs. It's top rated on consumer reports but I did have multiple people say that Samsung customer svc is HORRIBLE so fingers crossed that I never have to use them. Only though we have only owned it a few weeks now, my son and I are very much enjoying this fridge.

Love my Samsung products period
Posted by: debbiefj from: New Jersey on
I love my new refrigerator from top to bottom. Only wish I could put magnets on the front. (Samsung -- Design idea: put metal behind the stainless steel since stainless steel doesnt attach to magnets.) I cant think of any negatives. I love the adjustable shelves inside that move and flip up and down and slide in and out.
This may sound crazy -- but I love the ice. It doesn't melt too fast nor is it too hard. Occasionally after I finish my soft drink, I like to chew up the ice. This ice crushes nice and easily.
Love the adjustable temperature of the middle draw and love having the freezer on the bottom
(Cant figure out if the light turns off when the door is closed though - lol)

LOVE THIS FRIDGE!
Posted by: sshopper from: on
Seriously - LOVE this refrigerator!!!! We got the white model and could not be happier! The middle drawer (which we thought was a gimmick...) is actually really cool! We keep our most commonly used things in it. The freezer handle is easy to open. And the freezer holds WAY more than our side by side did! This is my first bottom freezer and I really like the convenience of it.
The 2 produce drawers in the fridge hold a lot. One of the condiment trays is a bit weird - the one the comes out and around the ice maker. Not sure what exactly would fit well in there. But the rest of the applicance is a great design! Even the LIGHTING in it is swell! Oh - and the water/ice dispensers work great!
Little noise made by this fridge, too.
All in all we are very very pleased with this appliance. Have had it about 3 weeks and it rocks.

Great value when on sale
Posted by: Slalom17 from: Indiana on
We like this frig a lot. Has plenty of room and the upper drawer can be opened without opening the doors. This is a real plus over models where the drawer is behind the doors. You then have to open both doors to open the drawer. This 2 drawer, 2 door Samsung is way better. If you have a problem with water dispenser leaking, make sure the water filter is completely tightened & then run at least a gallon of water through it. Controls are easy to use & well thought out. Nice & bright lighting. Makes ice quickly. Only minus was there is only 1 door shelf that can accommodate tall things like a gallon of milk unless you remove one. This means you have to open one of the shelves for additional tall items, but it is very roomy for the size.

2 design flaws
Posted by: Rick from: on
I purchased this refrigerator 3 years ago. So far, I have encountered 2 design flaws. The first involves the formation of an ice dam in the freezer defrost drain, eventually causing buildup of ice on the drain tray and the floor of the freezer compartment. Easily fixed ($180). The second involves the freezer temperature sensor. It is located on the upper surface of the freezer, but hangs about a half inch into the compartment. Food in the upper freezer tray can strike it, ripping out the sensor. If wires remain, it can be rewired and secured ($95). If not, time for a new fridge ($$$$)
Samsung was no help at all. They make great electronics and repair prone appliances.

Great option for next to wall
Posted by: Chrissy from: on
I chose this because my fridge sits against the wall & newer fridges have doors that hinge out, which would have prevented me from opening the door or using inside drawers. More space than my old standard width fridge.
Love the flexibility of the multiple-temp drawer & the quick cool feature of the fridge/freezer that helps keep the temp stable when I'm putting in a large batch of freshly cooked food.

My good old Whirlpool side by side quite cooling after 15 years of service so I had to find a new fridge in a short time. I spent a few days researching to try and find a French door fridge with 4 doors that had mostly good reviews. I finally decided on this Samsung and went to Best Buy to purchase. They had to order one but I got an awesome deal with a price match that I had found so I didn't mind the wait. I did have to wait about a week for it to arrive and get a delivery time scheduled. When the delivery drivers arrived we found out it could only go through one door in my house and that was a tight fit but they did an excellent job of getting in the house without any damage to the unit.
I have now had this Samsung for 1 year and could not be more pleased with my purchase. I love the fact that I can move the shelves around to accommodate whatever I may need to put inside. It took me several months to figure out that the top shelf of the right side slides out so you can reach things in the back! My veggies stay perfect for far longer than the old side by side crisper drawer kept them and the meat drawer is wonderful too! I really have nothing bad to say about this and after a year I could not be more pleased!
