    BEWARE: Samsung Has an Appliance Problem

    DO NOT buy the DA29-00019A or DA29-00020B Samsung water filter cartridge for your refrigerator unless you bring in your current water filter cartridge and compare the head (top) of your current filter to the filter in the store. If they match, no problem. If they do not match, then you have my problem. Apparently, Samsung changed its “certified” filters sold by Best Buy. The new DA29-00020B filters will NOT fit the older refrigerators. I contacted Samsung corporate and they told me to purchase a “certified” Samsung water filter. I did. At Best Buy. According to the Samsung web site, my refrigerator, a 2011 model (RS267TDBP), requires a DA29-00019A filter, now replaced by the DA29-00020B filter, which is all Best Buy sells for Samsung side-by-side models where the filter is located in the interior lower right hand of the unit. Apparently, Samsung changed it filter heads for newer models and no longer supports older model filters. I wrote to Samsung corporate HQ to no avail. Now I am stuck with a refrigerator with no way to replace the water filter. I’m NOT happy.

    Squeals

    I just bought my new fridge a few months ago and was changing the water filter for the first time. I noticed 2 things.... When I put the new filter in it squealed loudly when dispensing water. I took it out and put it back in about 5 times because the squealing would change in pitch and frequency each time. The last time it was still squealing but not as bad. After using the water in the door for about 2 weeks the squeal stopped and has not done it since. However, I swear that the water does not flow as fast as it did with the original filter that came with the unit (same model number of course). I know the water came out much faster before. Sometimes it drives me crazy because I am not patient enough for the water to come out at that pace. There is nothing I can do about either issue. As far as purchasing one goes... They are very hard to find. I called several stores (that were not Best Buy) and everyone was out of stock. They tell me they are hard to keep in stock. Luckily, Best Buy had one, but Best Buy price is about $6 higher than a large chain hardware/do-it-yourself store, but Best Buy had one and I needed it at any price. NOTE: With the new Samsung fridge the water and ice started tasting absolutely horrible a couple of days before the icon changed red indicating a change was needed, so I would recommend having one on hand just as soon as the icon begins to change colors because you may have to change it immediately. (We had to buy ice for a couple of days when I was trying to locate a filter).

    Great speakers - Nice bundle discount

    The Bose SoundTouch 10 speaker bundle includes 2 SoundTouch 10 speakers at a special bundle price. This is my second purchase of a Bose SoundTouch product. I was extremely pleased with my initial purchase and so far the SoundTouch 10 bundle is living up to my high expectations of Bose products. The speakers work flawlessly and are easy to control using the free SoundTouch App on my smartphone, iPad and desktop computer. I can play the same program in multiple rooms now that I have these additional speakers. The only downside I have identified so far is the lack of detailed online support to help with the installation process. Some tutorial videos would certainly be helpful. But eventually, I figured everything out on my own. This was a holiday purchase and the Bose customer support phone line had been very busy every time I have tried to call them for additional help. For example, here is supposed to be a way to use both speakers in the same room to achieve true stereo sound separation (left channel plus right channel) However, I have not yet been able to figure how to make this variation work . Otherwise, overall, I am very pleased with this purchase and I would certainly recommend this pair of SoundTouch 10 speakers to a friend.

    It's a Filter and You Need One

    OK, so I'm not sure there's much to say about a filter for your Samsung refrigerator. You should replace them regularly, if you want clean, filtered water. The reason I'm writing this is that I had read how one really needs to turn the water off before taking out the old and in with the new. That means either pulling the refrigerator from the wall, getting behind it and turning the water off there OR shutting down water to the entire house. Sorry, neither option appeals. So I decided to just try replacing the filter without turning the water off. And it couldn't have been simpler or worked better. No pressure issues. No spraying or dripping water. Just replace it, and then do make sure you run a couple gallons of water through to get rid of any impurities and air in the system. Easy Peasy!

    Filter should last longer

    When this filter is fresh, it works and tastes great. There are a few cons, none of which can be resolved by the end-user; • The filter should last 9-12 months. I have another fridge of a different brand, and its filter is smaller, and works for almost a year before replacement is needed. • It should be easier to change. To avoid having to fight the water pressure from the wall valve, you have to pull the fridge out, turn the water off at the wall, replace the filter, (vacuum behind and under fridge, optionally), turn the water back on, push the fridge back. I have another fridge of a different brand, and its filter is changed by opening the fridge door, remove a cover, and replace. I would "recommend this to a friend," only because its the only choice there is when it comes to this fridge. As far as I know, that is.

    The Filter in question is NOT the same as the OEM filter that comes standard in the Samsung refrigerators! The OEM version has a pilot hole of approximately 1/8" in diameter. In the "replacement" (well, not really), the same hole is less than 1/16" in diameter. The interior configuration where the filter is 'supposed' to mate correctly with the refrigerator is different. That being said, the replacement filter damaged the refrigerator housing, which had to be replaced by a Service Tech from Samsung. Had my refrigerator not still been under warranty, this "simple" filter change would have cost me over $400.00 for the part and service fee. Samsung Parts Line told me I should be buying filters directly from them, as the ones being sold at Retail outlets weren't the same. (NOTE TO BEST BUY: You MIGHT want to check your supply chain to visually check the deformities mentioned here...) I can't wait until my next filter change...

      Dear NotAmused,

      I'm sorry to hear about your experience. It's worth noting that there are occasional changes in the design of official Samsung filters, which are available at Best Buy in addition to through Samsung. However, it is important to purchase only official replacement cartridges, as you've noted.

      Thank you for your comments,
      Ms. SamsungMsSamsung

    I bought two of these filters - one to install now and one for a spare. I put one in (it takes about 5 seconds to insert it and give it a half twist to the right to install it, and then I followed the instructions of running about a gallon of water through it. You really do need to run this amount of water through it so get all of the air out of it so you get a smooth stream of filered water coming out. I then reset the change filter light - you have to do this manually but all it takes is pressing and holding for 5 seconds (not the 3 seconds they tell you) the child lock/filter reset spot on the bottom left corner of the touch control screen just above the water/ice dispenser. It works great now - tasty filtered water and flavorless crushed ice from my fancy refrigerator any time I want it.

    Good water filter

    Our Samsung refrigerator requires the replacement of water filters, and though it is a bit of a hassle, it's a necessary one if we want great tasting water. We've tried a few times going without when the indicator light signals that we are getting closer to the point of replacement for the filter, and yes you don't really notice the difference for the first month you skip switching out the filter, but consecutive months are quite noticeable as the water does taste ordinary. Although on the expensive side, they are indeed needed if clean, untainted water is something you wish to enjoy. They do a great job of filtering water, but they need replacement annually. It certainly adds up, but if clean, refreshing water is something you're interested in, then it's a must for Samsung fridges, work great, but expensive.
