We purchased a Samsung 26 cu ft french door refrigerator three years ago thinking it was the top of the line, according to what I read ahd heard from sources. Wow, were we wrong! Two years ago, just after the 1 year warranty expired, we heard a loud knocking noise coming from the cooling fan area. Turns out the defroster wasn't working properly and allowed the drain to clog. The resulting frost interfered with the fan blades making a loud noise. Then once that was worked on we dicovered the leak. Water would leak from the cooling fan area in the upper box to the bottom of the box, freeze to a sheet of ice and had stained the plastic with rust from the galvanized metal that is supposed to direct the water to the drip pan under the unit. After 10 to 12 service calls, the leak couldn't be stopped and A&E finally agreed to replace the unit under the terms of the master service agreement. We now have a new Whirlpool side-by-side 30 cu ft now in place. No more low quality Samsung. (Actually Samsung is aware of the problem and it is quite common with their french door units yet they turn a blind eye to the problem.)
Not long ago we were in the market for new cell phones. Given the problems with the refrigerator, we bought two iPhones and an iPad.
