    Very noisy fridge. At times when motor fan came on, sounded like a plane taking off!

    This is my 3rd Samsung refrigerator, 2-25.6 cu ft and now the 28.1, ALL makes LOUD-popping, rattling, screeching noise . Noisy at each interval of ice making, compressor on and off. . random noise thru out the day and night. I am returning it to the store and get a different brand. Samsung good for phone, not for refrigerator.

    Loud Clicking Noise

    We just bought this on 5-12-2016 and all is well except for a loud click that happens throughout the day. It sounds like a line contactor relay engaging whenever the compressor is called upon. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or is this a defective refrigerator that'll soon be going up in smoke.

    We have had this refrigerator for about a month. So far there have been no issues and the crispers work great. The only issue we have with the unit is the ice maker is really noisy.

    Had this one for about a month now and seems to be a good choice for interior space and accessibility. Not sure it is the best choice for noise. Ice maker is extremely noisy when cubes drop. Also door does not close on its own because of Samsung design.

    Overall a great fridge but the compressor is a little louder than my 15 year old fridge was. It isn't too horrible once you get used to it but it rattles more than I expected it to. Other than that this fridge is great.I really like the tall water dispenser cubby so you can fill water bottles. Also,the ice maker churns out ice at a fast rate and doesn't take up too much iternal space like other models we looked at.

    Nice appearance and finish and appears well built. One gripe ,it's loud !!! Makes a lot of noise while running. Pops and vibrates and can be heard across the room. Not sure if this is normal or not but it's LOUD.

    If not for the Ice Maker would rate 5 Stars. Very noisy and if you use a lot of ice this may not be satisfactory.

    Just bought the black stainless steel model. Very nice finish with plenty of room. We went from a side by side, 26 cu ft to 28 cu ft. Our old fridge was silent as a mouse, other than the ice but that was to be expected. This fridge is very loud. Geek Squad out to the house 6 days later to look at it. Nothing to be fixed. Was told all newer fridges sound this way because of variable speed compressors, and that the more expensive models with 2 compressors are even louder. Why in the world would anyone make a fridge that makes this kind of noise? This isn't an improvement over older models. Our we going back in time and not forward. You can't tell me that customers would be happy to own a fridge that sounds like something from the 50's-60's era.

    Ice maker limits space on door shelves. The refrigerator is annoyingly noisy. Had the techs out to check it but they say it is all right. Difficult to put things in the upper drawer of the freezer. It doesn't open far enough. Even with these issues, feel the refrigerator was a good buy. Just need ear plugs.

    Beautiful Refrigerator

    This fridge looks great, has a huge refrigerator section, and a fairly large bottom freezer. The quality of the construction is very good. The digital display is very informative, giving the temperature of the freezer and refrigerator, and giving options to turn on fast freeze and other features. The only thing that I don't care for is that it's fairly noisy when it's running. The ice-maker will make you jump when the ice dumps out into the internal ice reservoir. It needs more sound deadening. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and would buy again.

    Refrigerator works well, the icemaker leaves alot to be desired. Icemaker is very noisy and slow to dispense ice. Ice comes out mixed crushed an cubed.

    Nice fridge but can be noisy. The ice/water dispenser is the only negative but still not a deal breaker. Just annoying.
