Samsung RS263 Black Side-By-Side Refrigerator, Model RS263BK

Features:

  • Twin Cooling keeps food fresher
    Samsung's Twin Cooling System® controls and generates cooling air for the refrigerator and freezer separately. Airflow between the two stays separate so the freezer air stays drier, while the refrigerator's moisture level stays at 42%-almost 5x higher than single cooling systems resulting in fruits and veggies that stay fresher, longer
  • Find items fast with Energy-efficient LED lighting
    Strategically-placed LED lighting brightens every corner to help you find what you need. LED also emits less heat, making it much more efficient than traditional bulb lighting
  • ENERGY STAR® Compliant
    You'll save money while conserving energy with our ENERGY STAR®-rated refrigerators. Plus, a handy alarm alerts you when the door is left ajar or open too long
  • External digital display to easily adjust controls
    Convenient display shows the inside temperatures, when to change the filter, and controls the ice and water dispenser

Having read extensive reviews of refrigerators before going shopping, and then visiting four different retailers to listen to sales presentations this refrigerator stood out in its price class. Its lighting system, water filtration system, ease of moving shelves around, etc. It is so quiet the only time we hear it is when ice is dropping into the ice container and as it fills with ice we are hearing less and less. Stylish, and dependable all four sales pro's at there stores had high praise for this units quality.

I purchased this product more than two years ago and it has become the most disappointing major appliance I have ever owned. I researched thoroughly and my research led me to this purchase, but my research was obviously flawed. When my unit was delivered and installed I familiarized myself with the operations. I quickly discovered that the refrigerator side could not maintain a temperature less than 45 deg. F. I contacted my retailer and they replaced my unit with another. This unit was marginally better and would keep a constant temp of about 40 deg. F. when the unit was set to it's max cool setting. However, over several months the temp rose gradually into the mid 40's . I requested and received warranty service on this problem. The serviceman confirmed the problem and replaced the main circuit/memory board. Again, the problem abated for a few months, but again returned. My unit is now well beyond the warranty period and keeps a constant temperature (when set on the max setting) in the mid 40's, which, of course, is undesirable and not consistent with food safety. So I can't really allow anything to spend more than a couple of weeks in the refrigerator side before I toss it out. I know my refrigerator thermometers are accurate (I have used several) . I also know nothing is blocking the flow of cool air into the unit. The freezer side works as it should, but the refrigerator side is beyond disappointing. So I am already looking for a replacement, even though I should have another 10 years or more to enjoy the significant investment I made in this unit. What a frustrating purchase!

    Comments about Samsung RS263 White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

    Was only over a year into owning when called out a tech to service. Not under warranty. Thought parts needed replacing but air coils or whatever they're called froze up. It was the Styrofoam behind the plastic back wall that iced up and blocked airflow. Ended up using dry ice for 2 days until a tech could get out to the house. Had to remove all foods and let it defrost overnight. Saw online where this was a major problem with a lot who owned this model. Most people only seemed to have to do this once. I hope that's the case with me too.

            A loyal Samsung customer, a lesser performing refrigerator.

            • ice maker is horrible won't stop spitting ice out
            • interior plastic has a crack in freezer door.
            • needed one more shelf option in refrigerator door.

              Comments about Samsung RS263 White Side-By-Side Refrigerator:

              I bought this new side by side refrigerator based on several positive consumer ratings and also because I have always gotten a great product from Samsung. Not this time. First of all, the ice machine spits out ice like a machine gun, and keeps on ejecting ice after the lever is released. Everyone who gets ice comments on this. We are constantly picking several pieces of ice off the floor after removing a glass from the dispenser. You have to be very careful or it will break thinner glassware. With only a couple of months before the warranty expired, the cooling unit on the refrigerator side went out and that had to be replaced. We have noticed a large crack in the freezer door inside molded shelving area about 6 inches long. I cannot figure out how that happened. Sad to say but my wife regrets our purchasing this refrigerator. Me too. Sorry Samsung, but we either got advise on a refrigerator purchase or a bad unit. It works fine otherwise, but it is not up to what I have come to expect from Samsung.

                    I love it! it simply works great! I do wish it had one more light in the top however I think that was improved on the newer model, also I wish the top shelf was 2 inches taller so it would hold a 2 liter soda bottle. Other than that, its perfect! its quite, I noticed a smaller electricity bill after I bought this one to replace a 5yr old refrigerator.

                      Beautiful fridge with many power saving features and the lighting is great. We have had the fridge for over three years now and I have only had to have the front LED replaced once under warranty. The only issue I have is with the ice dispenser which throws out extra ice now and again. Very pleased with my purchase.
