Samsung White French Door Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - RF217WH

Features:

  • More ice with an automatic ice maker
    Automatically makes as much ice in less space than conventional models
  • 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.
  • Easy access to internal temperature controls
    The internal digital display gives you easy access to temperature controls and other information.
  • Drop temperatures with Power Freeze and Power Cool
    The Power Freeze and Power Cool feature drops the temperature in each compartment by 10 degrees within minutes. Great for chilling down cases of soda or hardening up ice cream in a flash.
  • Surround Air Flow
    Surround Air Flow ensures air circulates for even cooling throughout the refrigerator
  • Superior Ice Production and Storage
    Your parties just got bigger. Samsung refrigerators produce large amounts of ice so you never run out. Our extra ice storage helps ensure you have ice on hand at all times.
  • LED Lighting
    Samsung's best-in-class LED lighting gently brightens every corner of your refrigerator so you can see better. Plus, our LED lighting emits less heat and is more energy efficient than traditional lighting.
  • Attractive Design and Large Capacity
    Samsung refrigerators bring innovation to both design and storage. Our beautiful and sleek design complements any kitchen décor. And, the enhanced storage capacity offers more space inside with the same outside dimensions as a traditional model. That’s more room to hold your favorite drinks, party platters and leftovers.
  • 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.

1 Month After Purchase: After my parents' 40-year-old trusty top-freezer refrigerator gave out, we were faced with the challenge of buying a new refrigerator. (Yes, the old one was an auto-defrost.) We considered all the styles. The bottom freezer single door refrigrators were too big and were somewhat ugly and inconvenient. Most of the smaller units had freezer doors and not drawers. Bending to the small freezer space is worse than bending to a larger refrigerator space. The side by sides were just too big and wide and large items such as full-size cakes or party trays would never fit. Side by sides are so big they're small. We settled on a stainless steel front and were torn between buying another top freezer or a french door bottom freezer. In so doing, we decided a change would be good and went with the french door bottom freezer. My mother is older, and we thought having a refrigerator on top would be a welcome addition so she doesn't have to bend low for items in the refrigerator, realizing most new top-freezer door shelves go all the way down to near the floor for added storage, unlike our previous top-freezer. After reviewing and comparing nearly every refrigerator brand and model on the market, we finally settled on the RF217ACRS. We might've preferred the RF197ACRS which would've been exactly as deep as our old top freezer but it was not available anywhere locally and given the RF217 series is only 2 inches deeper, it still fits quite nicely alongside our countertop and provides a bit more storage space. First reason we selected the RF217 series was because of size. VERY few units had a short enough depth and correct width to even be considered. We wanted it to fit reasonably well and look good too. (Believe it or not, this unit actually has a shorter depth than some top freezer models.) Although it's not counter-depth, it's pretty darn close. It's height allowed it to fit perfectly with about 1/2 inch to spare from the cabinets above. Its width allows it to fit perfectly flush underneath our cabinets above. I measured it several times in the store before choosing it. Second, its internal layout was quite nice and didn't appear cheaply made with the adjustable/removable glass spill-proof shelves (heavy, durable) and gallon capacity refrigerator door bottom shelves. The LED lighting appeared very bright and expensive-looking for a model such as this, both in the refrigerator and freezer. Also, the vegetable bin sliders seemed a bit higher quality than some. They slid really smooth. The freezer was quite large (not that it had to be) and well-organized with the bottom bins and sliding organizer drawer. Ice maker with tray and scoop was nice too. The temperature was controlled digitally, with digital controls. Those were appropriately placed. Third, the twin cooling system was a major selling point for me. The dual evaporator keeps the air between the freezer and refrigerator separate, and definitely is a plus. Finally, it came in stainless steel and the handles were very attractive. The gray sides appeared bright. A nice thought was the requirement for the handle to raise slightly to more easily open the freezer. Overall, the thoughts we have after its delivery are pleasant. We were easily able to fit everything in the refrigerator with actually more room to spare than we thought we would. The freezer was nice and big so my mom doesn't have to run down to our chest freezer in the basement and nearly fall in it to find something (as often, anyway). The door shelves adjustability is very handy and easy to do. We like that you can slide the "fresh box" (what used to be called a meat tender) from all the way left to all the way right. It's easy to find and retrieve what you put in. Having the refrigerator on top makes so much sense. Also, we like that the freezer's internal sliding drawer is not just a rack (like some other refrigerators) and is a real drawer. The ice maker was a nice plus. (We're still waiting for a water line, so can't comment on that yet.) Third, the courtesy features are very appropriate. The door chimes telling you a door is open are nice. The sound effects for button press and door ajar are quite pleasant and very friendly. The digital controls are a welcome addition and very easy to use allowing you to set and keep the internal temperature for both the refrigerator and freezer at an exact constant. You always see the temperature inside both at a glance, which is nice. As for performance, the unit runs quiet and maintains temperature to a T. The refrigerator keeps things well cooled but we set it to 34 degrees Fahrenheit (coldest setting) to keep the milk ice cold, although we might warm that up some (38 is recommended). The freezer @ -2 keeps things as hard as a brick and it can go colder. The power cool and power freeze options are really nice and do really work well. I like that after delivery it only took a few hours using those features to bring the refrigerator and freezer temperatures down to where they needed to be. The doors are light and easy to open. Stainless steel does collect fingerprints, but it's very bright and stylish. As for recommendations, first, we would've like to see split shelves option. Also, the shelf with the "fresh box" looks better on top relative to aesthetics but isn't really feasible up there because it's too high up for shorter people. As for concerns, I'm not sure it's going to be beneficial long-term to have the LED lighting considering you need a repair technician to change the bulbs - those are NOT user-serviceable. Also, I have to say I was quite concerned with reading numerous reports of problems with Samsung units globally (coils freezing, reports of breakage and failure of internal components after only a few years), reports of poor customer service, lack of availability of parts, and only a small number of repair technicians who can or even will even touch a Samsung. However, most of that can be attributed to disgruntled customers writing poor reviews. I just hope I don't become a statistic :). However, all that aside, due to comparatively good reputation, we decided to take a chance on this unit because we liked it so much and it was so well designed. If I had to recommend it today, I'd do so. The unit is certainly something to recommend. Three different people saw it the first day and said they loved it. With that said, Samsung, don't disappoint me! 1 Year After Purchase: The refrigerator is still going strong with no problems detected. It's definitely made it this far and with flying colors, knock wood. We never got the icemaker connected. However, the ice container and scoop is otherwise very useful for bagged ice you buy. It's still an option, though. Overall, I really like the refrigerator. At nearly age 70, however, my mom can't get used to the radical change in configuration - going from only owning top freezers to a french door bottom freezer and says she wouldn't buy one again. However, although she doesn't like the form factor, she does like the convenience it adds and we both agree it keeps our food fresher and is very stylish. It definitely blends in well with the kitchen. The door chimes have saved my mom from leaving the doors slightly open COUNTLESS times and are an ESSENTIAL part of the refrigerator. Cleaning the shelving is extremely easy since the shelves are glass and plastic. We are careful about not damaging the refrigerator, so it has held up well cosmetically. I also use the stainless steel cleaner on the front doors and it shines nicely. The only minor problem is that the shelf spacing could've been somehwat larger for taller products inside. Again, split shelves would've been a nice option. Otherwise, no other complaints. Also, because this unit has the quality stainless steel alloy it's not magnetic on the front. It is disappointing since we can't put our refrigerator magnets on the front, just the sides. We still don't see a good competitor model out there. This is a well configured refrigerator and if it holds up well, we'll be very happy with it. Overall, this was a wise purchase and we do recommend it to others.

I believe Samsung is a quality company but when it comes to the design of this particular refrigerator they dropped the ball completely. Only one of the glass shelves is adjustable... and it is limited to about one inch of movement. We cannot store anything taller than a mustard bottle on any of the shelves. Gallon or half-gallon containers will only fit in the door and that space is quite limited. The pull-out bottom freezer does not open far enough to get to the back of the ice bin. The ice maker is so loud it wakes both my with and me up at night. Overall I would never recommend this particular Samsung appliance to anybody... If I thought the store would take it back I would.

    Comments about Samsung White Bottom Freezer Refrigerator:

    This refrigerator perfectly replaced our old refrigerator. We love the layout and design - in general it has been a great refrigerator for us. We definitely like the bottom freezer and French doors. One strange design aspect - the interior drawers require both doors to be open in order to slide them out. If only one door is open, the drawer will hit the other door. We have had this model refrigerator for 2 1/2 years now. Our first refrigerator failed in two weeks (quickly and easily fixed under warranty), and our second refrigerator had a component go out after just over two years (also reasonably easily fixed). We like it for it's features, but it has not provided years and years of trouble-free service.

              I was truly excited to purchase this refrigerator and my dreams were dashed. OK I am not allowed to provide details about customer service so I will tell you that there is surprisingly little space in this refrigerator. The freezer portion periodically ices up and I have to be careful to not have any plastic storage items around the perimeter of the freezer. I guess I could use glass but am supposed to keep the holes open so perhaps not.

                        my biggest problem with the refrigerator is having to double check the doors are closed tight. The left door closes tight but the right door always needs the extra push to close. The door closure warning is so faint unless you are standing right in front of the refrigerator you can't hear the pinging. The height between the shelves is not very high. I would need to remove a shelf for tall objects. Samsung should have give 1 of the shelves the ability to be split somehow. I love the display panel, sleek look and the quietness.

                              I was excited about this fridge, though it wasn't my first choice. It's a little bigger than I wanted for our space, it doesn't have a filter on the ice maker, it doesn't have a water hook-up... Really though, I was still impressed with the way it looked at first, and the size of the inside. But the layout is awkward, I don't like the spacing or sizing of the shelves, nor the minimal amount that you can customize where the shelves are. Now the handles are peeling and it feels like they are dirty when you touch them. On top of that, the handles aren't covered in the warranty, so their failure to take ownership of faulty parts meets their failure to design a good product in the first place. I don't think I'd buy another Samsung refrigerator in the future, based on this purchase.

                                  I've had this refrigerator for almost two years now. The drain line has repeatedly frozen causing water to build up in the refrigerator section for the last year. Today I went to pull out the drawer to clean out the water with a shop vac and the drawer cracked. The drawers are made of very thin plastic. Also, when I open the freezer ice is knocked out of the ice tray and onto the rails causing the freezer door to not close. This has caused us to accidentally not close the freezer all the way and defrost all of our frozen food.
