Samsung refrigeratorA design defect in Samsung refrigerators causes the coils to freeze over, leaving the refrigerator unable to remain cold enough to keep food from spoiling, according to a class action lawsuit filed in New Jersey. The lawsuit estimates thousands of U.S. consumers have purchased the defective refrigerators since 2005, and that consumers have suffered hundreds of dollar in damages from lost groceries and repairs caused by the alleged defect.

According to the Samsung refrigerator class action lawsuit, “The refrigerators are designed and manufactured with heated coils that are intended to prevent excess frost from developing in the back of the machine. Instead of preventing frost, however, the coils allow frost and ice to build up in the refrigerators until the ice clogs and/or disables the machine’s fans, making it impossible for the fans to work to keep the machine cool.”

The alleged defect not only renders the refrigerators unusable, but also poses a safety risk to consumers because it leads to food spoilage and the risk of food-borne illnesses. Further enhancing consumers’ risk of illness is the fact that many of the refrigerators falsely display on the exterior temperature reader that the inside of the fridge is at a standard cool temperature.

The class action lawsuit alleges the defect exists in all three varieties of refrigerators Samsung manufactures, including its French door, side-by-side and bottom freezer varieties, and the model numbers:


  • RF266AASH
  • RS263BBWP
  • RB1955SH
  • RS2533SW
  • RS267LASH
  • RS267TDRS
  • RS2630WW


The lawsuit further charges that “Samsung sold and serviced the refrigerators even though it knew, or was reckless in not knowing, that the refrigerators were defectively designed, would fail prematurely, and would ultimately result in [class members’] inability to use their refrigerators for their intended purpose.”

This is the second class action lawsuit filed in two months over defective refrigerators causing food spoilage. A class action lawsuit filed in July alleges LG’s French door refrigerator models contain a defect that causes the interior light to stay on after the doors are closed, resulting in overheating, food spoilage, melted plastic and fire hazard.

The Samsung refrigerator class action lawsuit is seeking damages, restitution and other awards for class members. A copy of the lawsuit can be read here.

        • Karen July 26, 2015

          I have the same model in white with the same problem. I purchased it in December of 2011, so it is only 3.5 years old. We have moved since our purchase and our fridge was in storage until we had our tiny-kitchen remodeled in the little 3 bdrm cape we purchased. We actually had to wait until all the old cabinets were ripped out before we could even move it into the kitchen because of its size. If we have to replace this fridge (and we have problems with it every year – especially in the summer), we will not only suffer the loss of our food, the cost of a new refrigerator, but we will also incur further cost to have the cabinets and countertop near our kitchen door removed and reattached. I just completely removed all the food and defrosted this fridge only a week ago because of this problem. Now I am having to do it all over again!

          • Dee Oldguy September 5, 2015

            And all you do,is enlarge the opening to the STANDARD size opening 36 inches” and it moves in and out effortlessly. Then once or twice a year, slide it out, vacuum the vents that are clogged you ignored the install instructions and have it it too close to the wall and all fixed.

    • judith barry April 12, 2014

      We have a Samsung French door refrigerator, model no. RS261MDBP. There is a very noxious smell coming from behind the frig possibly behind the back panels. It is has been 4 months now and the frig had to be removed to the garage where the smell is still very strong even with the garage door open. I have been nauseated, headaches etc. I recently had a mold test done next to the frig and it came back positive. What is our next step?

  • B Clough February 2, 2013

    My father in law fridge is a Samsung # RF263AEBP, he has the same issues with this model. What would be the next course of action?


  • Barbra Craig March 12, 2013

    RS263TDPN Our Samsung stopped cooling in the refrigerator side in Jan. 2013. We purchased in July 2010. It freezes up on the left side inside the frig and we actually can see the ice. Lots of spoiled food and bad smell. How can I be involved in the class action suit?

  • Barbra Craig March 12, 2013

    Ice forming on the left inside back panel, all food spoiled (RS263TDPN) Big disappointment for our dream fridge. Two and a half years old.
    Freezer works fine.

  • J Lawson March 27, 2013

    Model RF263BEAESR is junk also. Day I received it it did not work. Samsung told me to put the food in the refrigerator to help it cool of after 15 hours of install.. The next day needless to say all the food was ruined. They will not pay for the ruined food nor the inconvenience we experienced trying to get it diagnosed. All I can say is stay away from refrigerator refrigerators, I swapped ti out for LG and it worked on day one.

  • Pat Bowman March 29, 2013

    Please add my name to the law suit we are having the same issues

  • kenneth phillips June 1, 2013

    A bunch of us have RF265 french door with ice sheet buildup under crisper. Samsung needs to be sued for all of these other problems until they learn that they can’t cheat American consumers like they do in third world countries!!! Any lawyers want to take on the ice sheet buildup problem please e-mail me at:

  • Kerry Hollis June 11, 2013

    Purchased Samsung RF263AEWP on 10/08/2010 with 4 year warrenty. The fan/back panel have been replaced 3 times (fan always starts making noise, and water collects in and below crisper tray). It just happened again…4 times now same problem. If they replace it again, I am afraid it may last long enough for the warrenty to run out.

    In fact, they already sent a repair man out, he states it’s the same problem. I wonder if there is a lemon law for appliances.

    How can I be a part of this class action suit? Enough people have been taken advantage of…thanks.

    • kristy rasdall September 16, 2015

      We have the same model with same issues…purchased in 2010….the fan started being very very loud and then after several days of that, water under the crisper drawers appeared…this has now happened several times….now fan isn’t running at all….icemaker is defective as well and has had maintenance and parts replaced twice, early on.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    Our Samsung refrigerator is also defective and I would like to join the CAL. After a year of owning it the ice maker stopped working completely. Just refused to make ice. We had it serviced and it was discovered that the coils were all frozen through. The fridge was emptied and thawed to attempt to fix the problem. But when turned on the coils just froze up again. Now after 3 years of purchasing the unit, the refrigerator side refuses to maintain a cold temperature. The display panel keeps creeping up to 60 degrees and nothing in the fridge is chilled properly. you can imagine we have lost a ton of food due to spoilage.

    • M. Rogers October 8, 2015

      We have exactly the same problem. The Regional Factory parts and Service in Ottawa is the company assigned to repair for Samsung . Since December 14 , 2014 after 10 visits where they replaced the whole ice cube maker unit which cost us over $560. No success and the ice maker is still NOT working. They want to keep charging us to come back.and try to fix the problem. Terrible mistake to buy Samsung.

  • Jennifer Moore June 24, 2013

    I am also having the same issues on my 3 yr old unit, top fr doors back panel completely icing over and freezing up…PLEASE ADD ME to CAL is not too late.

    Technician advised to manually defrost unit for 24hrs every couple months to avoid complete overhaul. So every 2 months I have to drive to someones house and store my food until the refridgerator has defrosted then wait till its cold and return my food. WHAT!!
    this is definetly not a permanent fix, just a bandaid for a problem that needs to be addressed by Samsung.

    These are very expensive units and this is unacceptable. Completely faulty manufacturing and Samsung should be held accountable.

  • Donna Janssen July 5, 2013

    Please add me to your lawsuit. I have the exact same problem with the refrigerator side not cooling. Model#RS263TDBP. I paid $1438.41 for something that was supposed to be good quality. That is a lot of money to just throw away.

  • Megan Fitzgerald July 6, 2013

    A year and a half ago I purchased Samsung Model #RF197ACRS. A few months ago I started hearing popping and crackling and found ice build up in the back of the refridgerator section and water pooling beneath the vegetable bins. A few days before July 4th my fridge stopped cooling, all food was spoiled. Especially for a $2100 appliance this is completely unnacceptable! Samsung must be held accountable to all of us that clearly have purchased a known lemon appliance. What do I need to do to join this CAL?

    • Betty Faircloth June 16, 2015

      I purchased my Samsung Model #197ACRS April 2015. It came with a one year warranty and I purchased the two year extended warranty. I have had the service man to my house 3 times, two for the freeze up problem and one for a broken door spring. Its now June 2015 and I have the freeze up problem again and no warranty or service contract. Samsung should have to stand behind their products like car manufactures do and have to recall and replace their refrigerators if they cannot fix their problem. What do I need to do to join the CAL?

  • Terri B July 8, 2013

    I also would like to be part of this law suit. I purchased a French Door refrigerator RF217ACPN ANPN July 2011, for $1134.00. For that price I expect to last longer than one year. I have to spend time defrosting a “no frost” refrigerator. I have to wonder if Samsung has even been notified of law suit since they are still selling defective appliances.? Not only does it have ice coming out of inside panels in the top section…I get water in my crisper s. I do not have an ice maker so no water hook up. Also freezer compartment has build up of snow like frost and ice….NOT HAPPY !

    • Peter Kern July 4, 2015

      I too have a Samsung RF217ACPN which I purchased in June of 2011. About 6 months ago, the refrigerator started to freeze up and the fan made a terrible noise. Since then, I have had to defrost my refrigerator every month. It now keeps nothing cold and I have been loosing food regularly. I too would like to join this class action suit. I have called Samsung a few times but since it is no longer under warranty, I am faced with expensive repairs.

      • Yong Jiang September 6, 2015

        Please add me too. We have purchased RF217ACWP from local sears store two years ago. and the refrigerator temperature went up gradually, now the top panel stop showing any numbers after we defrosted the refrigerator.

We need and want a new fefrigerator ! We can’t afford to keep paying someone to come out and unthaw it and we can’t afford to keep losing food because it spoils ! What am I to do ???

  • Layla August 9, 2013

    I have the ice build up under the crisper too. Samsung says it is the Evaporator cover. The first time it went out the fridge was 13 months old and it cost me $276.00. Less then 6 months later it went out again and Samsung covered it. That one lasted just over 12 months and now I’m waiting for Samsung to come fix it again. They said I will have to pay for it because its past the 12 month warranty. Please add me to lawsuit.

Water/ice builds up under the deli tray, Freezer gets frosted over, Water/ice thru the door has a leak and the moisture inside the door causes paint to bubble up and rust. A $2500 refrigerator, not worth the price. Samsung needs to back their name and fix these issues.

  • Dave October 14, 2013

    When will this Samsung refrigerator lawsuit close?
    Did they fix the problem for later models?

  • Jessica Mercer November 30, 2013

    The Samsung RS263TDPN refrigerator does not cool correctly. The ice builds up and requires some one to come out and fix every 3 months. It makes a loud noise once the ice has built up. If they come out to fix it you will loose all the food in your refrigerator. It is grossly engineered and leaves the buyer to pay the bill. Samsung will not take responsibility for selling broken refrigerators.

  • Chris Westerdahl December 4, 2013

    I have the model RS261MDRS purchased from Sears In July of 2012. Same problem. Fan in freezer is getting locked up and sounds like a helicopter. Unbelievable 18 months and stuck with a POS. also the supposed LED lights on the front are burning out. 1200 down the drain.

  • lawrence January 29, 2014

    purchased a samsung rf217acrs in july 2010. have had ice build up on the evaporator coil, water leaking into the vegetable bins and under them (due to drain being frozen over), popping noises from ice build up pushing on the plastic evaporator cover, and ice freezing the cooling fan which stops the cooling in the frig and makes the temperature go to 55-60 degrees. after a year of talk and letter wrtiing to samsung – they have paid for 3 repairs (i only had the 12 month warranty), and it still has the same issue – ice is building up because the design of the heater element is faulty – and supposedly the 3 repairs had a newly designed heater element. after all of this, the are willing to buy the unit back, less 10 percent per year depreciation prorated against my original bill of sale receipt (1,269) or in other words give me $818 when i supply them a picture of a cut power cord to the unit and the decal inside the unit with the serial and model number.

    trust me, i am finally get some recompense for all my efforts, but i surely have earned it the hard way. to buy another samsung with all the horrible customer service….. they cannot even tell me if this problem has been addressed with their new production of this model – and i have repeatedly asked the specific question.

    what samsung should have done is a product recall and fixed the problem for everyone – instead of making each single customer go through hell. it should be known – spread the word – that samsung really does not stand behind the product, manufactures it with known issues, and has poor customer service and outreach. it is a nice looking unit, has nice egonomics, etc. – if it only WORKED.

    • Isabella Tran June 24, 2014

      I have the same model RF217 and called Samsung and said is out of warranty. I also have same problem as you do with ice building up to the point that my veggies bins are frozen that I can’t pull it out. I hate Samsung so much. If you have any further info on this model, please email me and I will do the same for you. I think we should all be compensate for theiry crappy shit products. Thank you.

    Any new info would be great!

  • Martha Wong March 27, 2014

    Having the same problem. Within one year water line frozen, in fact the reservoir in back completely frozen. Called service, they came and defrosted the reservoir but we continue to have problem. We continually have to clean water under the crispers and now the fan is making a huge racket and we see the back panel has ice buildup. It definitely appear to be a product defect and would like to be in on the CLA if its not too late. Where do I sign up? Our fridge is about 5 yrs old.

  • Mike Harper March 31, 2014

    I purchased a Samsung RF268ABP French door bottom freezer in Sept. 2010. On several occasions I have come out in the morning and there is water on the floor by both front corners. I have had a repairman (through the ex. war.) come out only to tell me that its not leaking now, so I can’t fix it. It happened again this time causing damage to our laminate flooring next to the kitchen. Am I eligible for the lawsuit?

We have had repairmen out 3 different times for the same problem. We’re told that we need to defrost the refrigerator every 3 months. That is not a solution. Can we please be added to this class action lawsuit?

  • JGlenn April 13, 2014

    Have Model RF266AFRS which has the same problems, include me in law suit as well.

  • AAndrews April 19, 2014

    You can add one more Samsung model to the list (RS265TDWP). My refrigerator wasn’t cooling and come to find out it is because the back of the refrigerator was covered in ice. Water was also pooling under the vegetable crisper. Additionally , there was a very large ice build-up next to the fan, which was preventing the fan from spinning properly.

    I have had this refrigerator for 2 1/2 years and am appalled by the quality. 1 1/2 years in, the display broke and I would have to replace the whole door. Not willing to pay for a repair that is half the cost of the refrigerator, I have opted to live with a malfunctioning display. Now that I am having problems with ice build-up I am sincerely regretting this purchase.

    • sheela April 25, 2014

      Can anybody share if they have done diy fixes for this? Sears wants $300 to look at this.

  • kevin kotermanski April 19, 2014

    I also have a rf267 Samsung have had to pull apart several times over the past few years what a hassle please add my name to law suit I purchased from best buy and they were no help at all with the issue and no repair service will even work on this issue good luck everyone worst $2500.00 ever spent on a Samsung product!!!!!!!

  • heather wilson April 19, 2014

    I have a Samsung and need to know how to join this. Thank you.

  • sheela April 25, 2014

    I have the same problem, my samsung side by side refrigerator freezes up – i Have had to defrost by shutting off the fridge for 15 hours, then it works. I also get a bad smell sometimes, looks like the drain is getting clogged. Diagnostics showed 22E which means fan problems- But the fan problem is resolved after defrosting so looks like it is frosting issue

  • Brandon Chong April 26, 2014

    I have the same problems which started at about 4 years into the fridge’s life, it is now the 5th year. I contacted Samsung through their live chat. they put me through all of the BS repair problems protocol. I told them to “stop BSing me” and then they said that they will write a ticket for me and be contacted within 2 days. doing those repair protocols, for a year; lead nothing but the fridge worsening in problems…. now after it defrosts, itll take less than a day for the problem to reoccur…. and now the temperatures just say 0*F for both the fridge section and the freezer section…. so now after doing researches i have found out that it most likely was a problem of Samsung not just one in a hundred/thousand units…. i would like Samsung to do something about this problem…. I am more concerned about the food that is going into the fridge and the freshness of them…

  • Lori Sparks May 28, 2014

    I have a Samsung RS263TDBP. It is now out of warrenty, and this is the third time it have freeze and iced up and stop cooling. I will not pay to fix somethink that will never be really fix. Help what do I do. I want to be added to Lawsite.

  • Donna Stone May 29, 2014

    I am also having issues with my almost 3 year old Samsung French Door Refrigerator model number RF266AEPN. At first the freezer failed. We pulled it out, vacuumed the coils and it worked again. Now the handle’s plastic hinges that allow the freezer door to open have broke. This happened when I attempt to open it today. I contacted Samsung because I do not believe that a almost three year old refrigerator should have issues. I was basically told that it is not under warranty and that a service technician would call within 24 hours to talk to me about it if they deem it to be an issue they should address. When you spend $1400.00 on a refrigerator it should last. I should not have to worry about coming home to find my food spoiled. Please add me to a possible lawsuit.

  • Stephanie June 5, 2014

    What is the update on the lawsuit? I have a Samsung RS263TDWP that has the exact same problems as the models included in the lawsuit. I would like to know if another lawsuit can be initiated or if it’s possible to add models to the existing suit if it hasn’t been settled.

  • Jan June 13, 2014

    Same story as ALL the others with coil and drain freeze up and water and ice in crisper drawers. Yes, spent lots of money only it only to be told it is out of warranty. not my problem anymore attitude. PLEASE add me to the list. Bought in late 2011 I read as long as you are having the coil freeze problem the model does not matter that you would be included in class action suit. I am so irate. never never buy Samsung again because of their customer service. I am sure none of us have money to throw out the window these days!

  • Scott Hilderbrand June 13, 2014

    I have a Samsung RF267ABWF with the same problems . please include me in the law suit

  • janelle centala June 29, 2014

    I have a rs263tdbp .. n it sounded like a helicopter but still functioned. Until today now I have no cooling of the refrigerator side AT ALL! I’d like to b added to this suit as well.

  • Ryan Nelson July 3, 2014

    How do I join the lawsuit!??

  • Jason R. Smith July 17, 2014

    Same problem here. Freezer works fine, fan makes horrible noise, ice builds up on back panel, water collects under crisper drawers, and will only cool to about 50 degrees. Really thought I was buying a quality product with Samsung. Will never own another one of their products, nor will anyone I know if I have anything to do with it.

  • P. Chan July 21, 2014

    RF263AERS bought from Lowes in 2011 has given us so much grief. Finally the trick to stop the freezing of evaporator fan is to set temperature warmer which substitutes in a different problem but more manageable: water pools under the deli tray until starts to leak out when its accumulated too much. This is half hour cleanup every couple months rather than defrosting and losing food every 6 months.

  • Jack Brodzik July 25, 2014

    I have the same freezing/leaking problems as well. Do not have the model # available for this post, but it is only 2 years old. I would definitely like to be added to the lawsuit list! thanks.

  • Latasha Dominguez August 2, 2014

    Bought a Samsung fridge in 2012 made in 2011…model RF266AEBP….Coils ice up and fan ices up so the fridge won’t cool… Wasted a lot of money on spoiled food. I have to manually defrost fridge every 3 weeks :( only owned it for 1 year before it started acting up.

  • Michelle Gieng August 3, 2014

    I am having the same problems with my fridge. Can anyone tell me how I can enroll in the class action lawsuit. Or if there is anything I can do. The warranty is over and I am putting out a lot of money on repairs just to have it stop working on me again in only 3 weeks from the last repair.

  • Pradeep Yelisetti August 9, 2014

    I have the same problem. Temp startyed blinking at 34 deg and when opened the back panel is iced up.The evaporator heater is open and needs the total evaporator coil need to be replaced and whole freidge need to be redone to fill refrigerant, which is a costly repair. etc.. Fridge is bought in 2009. Please add me to the class action suit list as well.

  • Bryan Daley August 9, 2014

    I have the RF267AERS and I have the same problem with the back freezing up and leaking water. Please include me in on this class action lawsuit.

  • Jen August 10, 2014

  • Paul Vangi August 11, 2014

    I have same problem! Model number # RF217ACRS Please include me in class action lawsuit just under 2 yrs old refrigerator. Thank You !

  • Amanda August 12, 2014

    I have the same issue. There has to be a way to stop them from selling these defective products. I don’t even want to have mine serviced because of all the comments I have read. There is no fix for it. It just continues to stop working and freezing up. It will cost $500 to have a service call and break again in a month. Please let me know what to do next. I am still making payments on this fridge and looks like I will have to go buy another one. Please include me in the class action lawsuit.

  • Allene Fox August 12, 2014

    I bought my fridge in Feb 2013 and had this happen yesterday. In troubleshooting on the internet, I found out all this information. How can I be included in the class action suit? My model # is RF267AERS. I fixed it by watching a video on tube showing how to take off the panel and defrosting the coils and the drain line. What a mess. Took me 5 hours. I am so mad right now.

  • Young Yoon August 24, 2014

    My 3 years old Samsung refrigerator RF217ACPN has the same problem. Coil freezing issues keep happen even if you manually defrost the coil. The issue started a little over a year after we bought the refrigerator. Any solution to this?

  • April August 26, 2014

    Has anyone received a reply regarding this class action suit? Is it still pending? Can people still be added to it? Have there been any settlements? I’m having the same problems as others are mentioning above and would like to be included as well.

  • Joyce September 4, 2014

    Having the same trouble with a fridge we purchased in April of 2013, I went online to find out how to clean coils and found class action lawsuit information instead. I went to the website for the District Court in New Jersey, got a phone number and found out you have to write a letter to the judge to request being added to the case. Website is here: Judges for the case are Martini and Falk, you can get their names off the website. Write a letter with documentation about your purchase and any repair history, and mail to the Newark address. They will want the case number: Civil Action Case No. 2:10-cv-04811-WJM -MF. I am hoping to exchange at Sears on a defective merchandise policy; we will see. Otherwise, I will be joining the case myself.

  • Obed September 6, 2014

    I bought Samsung RS261MDRS from HHGREGG with their extended warranty. After about 18 months it went bad. It started with making a very loud noise like that of a helicopter, then it starter forming ice and eventually stopped working. HHGREGG sent technician to fix it 4x but could not fix it. Then they told me that they are done because they do not know what is wrong with it. I called Samsung but they could not do anything for me. They told me that I am out of warranty and cannot extend it. Please add me to your lawsuit.

  • Darren Durel September 27, 2014

    I have a rf268 model, I’ve taken it apart 3 times to unfreeze it. I would like to join join the lawsuit also.
    Please advise

  • Kelly martin October 7, 2014

    Weve had an ice build up since we bought our fridge. I just now found this page .im in canada , can we join in this action . Im very tired of paying top dollar for things that require more money to fix. Please advise
    Thank you

  • Sherri Zuroff October 12, 2014

    I have had the rf266aepn model since 2010, it has frozen over 6 times since then, had several repairman over, no one could permanently fix it. wasted a lot if time and money defrosting this, please include me in lawsuit. Samsung customer service is also terrible and unhelpful.

  • Bruce Ulch October 21, 2014

    I have a RF266AFRS and is on extended warranty with W-3 Solutions. The unit is making the fan noise like the above units. There is a high temp light on. I called them and they told me that the unit has to be inoperative to be covered under this Warranty. I said what about the food spoilage if it comes to that point and they said they would cover that also. That is bullshit that I have to put up with this noise until it quits working. They are probably betting the warranty will run out by that time. Can I be added to the lawsuit.

  • Sonja Henderon October 22, 2014

    I have had the RS261MDDRS model since 2012, it has frozen over 3 times since then, had several repairman over, no one could permanently fix it. I am now forced to replace the cooling fan with hopes that this will solve the issue but after several reviews of You Tube videos addressing this very problem for the past four years and numerous of customer complaint’s replacing the part is highly unlikely to resolve this apparent faulty manufacturing of a high end refrigerator $1200+ and me having to take the back panel off every 7 months to defrost and throw away hundreds of dolor’s of wasted food and a lot if time and money defrosting this, please include me in lawsuit.

  • Deborah Pfeiffer October 23, 2014

    Please include us! Our RF217ACPN is less than 2 yrs. old. The whole fridge went dead a few months ago for about 8 hours (it was a Sunday, talk about scary) but husband-engineer was able to get it going again and, thankfully, we have an old fridge in the basement (30 yrs. old!) that saved the food. Now water accumulates under the crisper in the Samsung and freezes. The front of the crisper just snapped off as I tried to get it open, and I’m looking for a replacement on line– when I discover thousands and thousands of similar complaints about these fridges! What’s going on?

  • Donna Horan October 25, 2014

  • Amy Lee November 20, 2014

    RF263AERS/XAA–spent over an hour with a ‘technician’ in online chat because ice and frost built up in freezer everywhere. Bought Dec 2011 for a LOT of money from Lowe’s. Followed tech’s suggestion. Unplugged, cleared food from freezer, used hair dryer to help melt the ice. Cleaned freezer of ice and water. Dryed surfaces with cloth. Returned food to freezer. Plugged unit back in. Frost and ice are back. How can I join this group of people being victimized by an obvious defective appliance?

  • Martin Ha December 6, 2014

    I am having A RF217ACRS. I collected around 1 and a half of gallons of water in the left side vegetable compartment and on the floor of the refrigerator this morning. It was frustrating to see the water dripping into the vegetable and rotten it.

  • CJ Geng December 8, 2014

    I have the same problem with my samsung refer service person worked on it 12/7 /2014 it is 2year old he said they are all that way. What can we do to get it fixed so as not do it any more the bill would have been over 200.00 if had not had extended warranty. Please help

  • bernice mick December 16, 2014

    I am dealing with freeze up issues as i write!! We bought a Samsung fridge side by side bottom freezer model# RF 197acrs. in Oct. 2013 , in July 2014 it froze up and a lot of water under veg. and crisper drawers.
    repair man came fixed it….NOW Dec. 16th woke up to noisy fan , temp. rising! so here i go AGAIN!! I have 2 Christmas dinners coming up and a lot of baking to do!! called today and they will get back to me…last time i lost a lot of food items..they told me to put “stuff” in a cooler til they get there???? took a week!! lost a lot!! I’m done with this crap!! I want a new Fridge and i will get it on them!!!!

  • Kathy bledsoe December 18, 2014

    I purchased my side by side refrigerator from best buy and have only have a few months and have nothing but problems with loud fan, freezing up, or items not being cold and my temp is turned up , or my food spoiled quickly and we have wasted so much money and we get told its under warranty but they never show up to look at it or fix it. Waste of money and very upset with it and we paid almost 2,000.00 for it. Major rip off. I want in only a class action suite if one is available. Thanks

  • John Caldwell December 22, 2014

    I have a 2010 Samsung RF267AERS Refrigerator. This thing is a total piece of JUNK. Service company agrees after trying to repair it numerous times. Home warranty company will no longer help. Samsung will not help! ICE forms under the crisper drawers about every 3 weeks. The drain hole quickly freezes over and water soon flows into the fridge. It’s VERY FRUSTRATING!!! PLEASE ADD ME TO LAWSUIT!

  • Bryan Tippetts December 23, 2014

    We bought our RF265ABPN in the summer of 2009. have had the same issues everyone else has been reporting. In addition however, the rubber seal around the French doors had to be replaced because of a tear in the top of seal allowing room temp air inside. Replaced in 2012 and now another tear in the exact same spot as before.
    All concluded to us that Samsung designs are faulty and do not stand behind their refrigerators. Please add me to class action lawsuit as we’ve spent hundreds of dollars in repairs. Or email information on joining the CAL.

  • Lisa Lopez December 25, 2014

    So what is the point of this thread? No one responds to it. Has anyone been contacted about the lawsuit? We also have the French Door Model RS263TDBP with the same issue described repeatedly in this thread. Loud noises, now no longer cools effectively and we have lost a lot of food. It was manufactured June 2011 which means Samsung continued to make these faulty appliances even after the lawsuit was filed. Goes to show you they make so much money they don’t even care. Stop buying Samsung products – all of them. Fight them with your wallet.

  • Randy January 1, 2015

    We have several Samsung products but ; the refrigerator mod# RF265ABPN has been a nightmare ! We’ve had these same freezing issues ( 3 times ! ) ,what can we do ?

  • Kathy January 6, 2015

    I would like to be part of this law suit. I purchased a Samsung French Door refrigerator Model RF217ACPNXAA from Best Buy on Sept. 25th 2010 that was on back order and I didn’t receive until Oct. 23, 2010. The refrigerator settings were done at the time of delivery by Best Buy. From the start, the refrigerator was noisy and would sound like it was clicking on and off. Then we started having trouble with things freezing in the refrigerator and the crisper/vegetable bins would fill with water and ice in them that was 1\ or more! Even after service, this is still going on! We have lost a lot of food that was ruined by freezing. Also, we have had snow like frost in the freezer. We do not have an ice maker. All this started shortly after purchase; nothing is covered by the warranty! A new refrigerator should not have these problems! VERY UNHAPPY WITH THIS SAMSUNG REFRIGERATOR!

  • Kathy January 6, 2015

    Regarding my comment with problems with my Samsung French Door refrigerator Model RF217ACPNXAA, the ice build up in the crisper/vegetable bins is 1 or more! ALSO, I forgot to mention that the water and ice buildup is also UNDER the crisper/vegetable bins (across the whole bottom of the refrigerator). It is a mess!

  • Andrew Stevermer January 19, 2015

    Purchased the RS267TDWP$1240 on 12/10/10. Began having icing and evaporator van motor failure on 9/10/13. Paid almost $300 to replace motor. Now I am having the same problem. This is clearly a design failure. Please add me to the law suit.

  • Monte Wall February 6, 2015

  • Vikas Verma February 8, 2015

    I have an RF260BEAESR with the exact same problems. The freezer is working fine, but the refrigerator has stopped cooling altogether. The temperature indicator shows an incorrect reading of 34 degrees when the actual temperature might be in the 45-55 range.

    Our temperature for the freezer and fridge switched to 0 degree on its own. We tried to switch the temperature back to its normal temperature but it instantly goes back to 0. Everything in our freezer has been covered with ice, and we noticed the snow like ice before the tempratures changed to 0. I’m worried that in the future all the ice in the freezer will cause more problems. We’ve had the fridge for 2 years.

  • Deborah Spaulding February 17, 2015

    RF217ACPN is the model I purchased…It accumulates water in the veg bins, along with icing at times, plus icing over the entire area underneath the crispers…I thought for the longest that I was not adjusting the fridge and freezer temps properly, along with the humidity adjustments of the bins…My concern is that after my extended warranty is depleted, I will be stuck with repair costs for this obvious design flaw…Shame on Samsung…

  • Cindy Holtz February 19, 2015

    We have a three year old Samsung refrigerator Model RS263TDBP that has now gone out for the second time with the same problem. Back in April of 2014 the vegetable crisper began to freeze food and the upper part of the fridge was not cooling. Ice was building on the back wall. We paid $500. for the repair and now again it is doing the same thing. I want to get on this class action law suit. How do I go about doing this?

  • Keosha Weaver February 21, 2015

    My unit is having the same issues. My model number is slightly different though; RS261MDRS. Can you give me information on how I can join this CAL?

  • E. Mann February 21, 2015

    Samsung model RF265ABB. After I purchased this refrigeration unit, I had problems within the first month and had to call for repairs under warranty. Hindsight, I should have returned the unit for a full refund. The cooling system inside continues to freeze around the coils and circulating fan. This causes fan noise (due to ice build up) and lack of cold air circulation. The noise is always a concern and food does not cool properly causing spoilage. This has happened so many times I have learn to do the repairs myself due to the unit now out of warranty. BOTTOM LINE, a refrigerator is an expensive appliance to purchase. All of the consumers on this website expect their major purchase appliances to work properly. Samsung should be held accountable and correct the issues. When will someone hold Samsung accountable? Enough is enough?

  • Anita Baldwin February 21, 2015

    I have the same problem however a different model# RS261MDRS. Had a repair guy out 3 times before the 1 year warranty was up. After 15 months old & the ice maker quit working. Now a month later (16 months old) it’s making that loud noise & isn’t cooling. How do I join the lawsuit?

  • Christine Emery February 25, 2015

    Same here with model RS265TD. Not cooling anymore due to ice build blocking the fan. Unit not under warranties anymore and spent hundreds in worthless repairs. I want to be part of this lawsuit as well.

  • Sara February 26, 2015

    My model # RF266AFRS it is different from the ones listed however I am having the same issues. I am emptying and defrosting my refrigerator at least once a month. The frig is barely 3 years old. This is unacceptable and the individuals answering the phones at the Samsung call centre have terrible customer service. Please let me know if I can be added to the CAL or what my next steps should be.

  • Leanne Moffit February 26, 2015

    We bought the same model RF197ACRS in August 2012. The next year in Nov.2013 water started pooling in the veg.drawers and under the veg. drawers on bottom of fridge and freezing sheets of ice!!! Got on the internet and there was tons of people with complaints…..all with no satisfaction from Samsung company. A few people said it was not a defective part, but its a defective design in making the fridge! It stopped last winter and started up again this last summer and I am just sick and tired of having to put a hand towel in the back of each drawer to absorb the water. The drawers seem to take turns with the water leaking. Its ruining my vegetables with the wetness and slime! We paid $1,200.99 and that’s before they added the tax. We would love to get on the CAL!!

  • Martin Priches February 27, 2015

  • Patrick DeBauche February 28, 2015

    My Samsung side by side model # RS253BASB, has been freezing the food in the refrigerator side for over 6 months now. Ice builds up behind the bottom drawer until it pushes the door out far enough that the door will not close. I have to put any food that I do not want frozen on the middle shelf or higher. I have had a qualified Samsung repairman look at it and he said it was a design flaw and I would have the save problem repeat itself. I set the temp at it’s highest setting and it still keeps freezing up.I have dealt with this at least three times and enough is enough! I have a lot of money tied up into this thing and I want some compensation for this piece of junk. Please add me to the class action lawsuit! If this isn’t the right website to do so,PLEASE direct me to the correct website.

  • Katherine Edwards February 28, 2015

  • Gwen Sheppard March 2, 2015

    I would like to be added to the lawsuit. I purchased a Samsung RS263WW/XAA side-by-side refrigerator a few years ago. We have had issues with the icemaker and we are having problems with water leaking underneath the ice/water dispenser. This has caused the surface to rust and the pain to bubble and crack.

  • Travis McCann March 4, 2015

    I have a Samsung RF266AEPM model with the same freezing up under back interior panel, drain hole freezing and water periodically accumulating beneath the crisper/deli drawer(s). Have dismantled the unit twice to defrost behind the interior panels, evap coils and drain hole. Also have manually defrosted the unit twice by removing all the food into ice chests and turning the unit off for several hours, then restarting. Have replaced the Evap assembly and the ice maker switch in the past year. Bought the unit in 2010. Unit does not perform as advertised, leading to food spoilage. PLEASE ADD ME TO THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT!

  • Vaclav Dvorak March 11, 2015

    After watching CBCs Marketplace and the problems others were having with their expensive Samsung refrigerators, I decided to check further how Samsung is allowed to get away with their shoddy workmanship and design. I bought our fridge at Lowes in 2011. It was noisy from the start. In December of 2014 it simply died. I was able to put the freezer food out on the deck and save the Christmas Turkey. Phone calls to Samsung are routed to Costa Rica. They told me I had to contact a certain repair shop. An initial charge of $90.00 to look at the fridge was charged. I tried to get out of the repair man what the matter was as the condenser was still under warrantee. He would not give me any straight answers at all. 2 days before Christmas he came to repair it. In total almost $950.00 to repair it with only one month warrantee on the repair and only 3 months on the new parts. The guy spent 2 hours doing the repair. I WOULD LIKE TO PARTAKE IN THE CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT AGAINST SAMSUNG. I hope Lowes, Home Depot and whoever are selling Samsung refrigerators drop them like a hot potato until Samsung can act in good faith and pay for the cost of the repairs,.

  • Cindy Kennedy March 11, 2015

    We have model # RF267ABRS and are having the same problems with it freezing up. Just had a repairman out here for the 3rd time. We would like to join the law suit.

  • Javier Morales March 17, 2015

    Have same issues with Samsung French door fridge bought in December 2013. Include me in also.

  • Joe Cool March 19, 2015

    I have a Samsung side by side model RS261MDBP, I purchased this from Bestbuy on 06/01/2013 to this date the repair tech has made two trips to replace both the ice maker and the back fan assy. that freezes and starts to clatter because the blades are hitting the ice as it builds up. Today 03/19/2015 Bestbuy is coming out again for the same problem, I was told by the repair tech the last time that Samsung is aware of this problem and has no fix for it other than to replace the parts and then wait till it freezes up again! I asked Bestbuy about the lemon policy Ann from Bestbuy told me that if the item fails same problem twice then they issue a RA coupon to come get another product. She kept asking me if this was a specific sales, item I told her I have no idea what she was referring too, after several back and forth on the phone as she was trying to look up previous records she came back and said sje would hand me off to Bryan who would schedule a service call, Bryan had a problem with his phone and I could only hear every other word, he had to call me back and then when he attempted to put me in the system it would not work, after sever minutes on phone while I waited for him to get it fixed he finally came back and asked if I could call them back in 2 hours and see if it worked then. two hours later and it still would not work, they finally got me scheduled and I await the Tech to come by and give me the diagnosis, So far I have spoken with Ann, Victoria, Bryan and a David. One other thing that is sketchy Victoria told me that since the fridge had been worked on twice while under the manufacture warranty, that now it is on the Best buy 4 yr warranty that I had purchased for them to deem this as a lemon it would have to fail with the same problem 3 more times! I dont know what kind of games both Bestbuy and Samsung are playing but they both need to get there act together!

    • Bob Osgood October 2, 2015

      They were asking about Pacific Sales, not specific sales. They are a big box retailer in Southern Califorina (maybe other places) That is where we bought our Lemon, same model as yours.

  • Tommie L.Watts March 19, 2015

    I have a Samsung refrigerator Model#(RF267ABRS) BOM NAME #RF267ABRS/XAA. I just had 3 repairman at my house yesterday and worked on the refrigerator for 3 1/2 hrs. Changed the coils in the unit and some other parts because the unit stopped cooling and freezing and ice maker would not work. I’ve had multiple problems with the unit. I purchased the unit in April of 2009 and paid $2300.00 I expected after paying that much for a fridge that it should last at least 10 yrs one would think. I had just been grocery shopping for the family and lost over $500.00 in food and frozen food. I am on a stricken budget and don’t have the funds to replace items such as food and refrigerators. I could go on and on about the fridge. It took a repairman from Samsung factory repair over a month to have someone to look at the unit. How do I get in on this class action law suit? VERY DIS SATIFIED ABOUT SAMSUNG.

  • Antonio Montana March 23, 2015

    compre este refrigerador puertas francesas, en Aarons… hace 4 anos,modelo # RF217ACRS, hace dos meses empezo hacer escarcha hasta que dejaron de funcionar los fans como me puedo unir a la demanda colecctiva

  • pamela makuch March 24, 2015

    We purchased a Samsung refrigerator several years ago and since then had to purchase a new Kenmore frig.Samsung frig starting acting up I noticed several months later ice 1 to 2 inches thick under the drawers. I had to chisel it away to even get the drawers open.(food wasted) I cleaned up the mess and couldn’t for the life of me figure it out.Not long after that I realized this same problem was reoccurring. We had several repa8rmen out and basically was told it could not be resolved it was a design issue.Our 1500$ brand new Samsung is sitting out in the garage unusable(money down the drain) Not to mention Hundreds of dollars of food thrown out CONSTANTLY!! Please include us in this lawsuit.This has been a NIGHTMARE!!!

  • Connie valencic April 1, 2015

    My Samsung French door bottom freezer has froze up since I bought it 3 years ago. How do we get in on this lawsuit.

  • Chris Maag April 7, 2015

    Hope this is how you do it, I bought a rs265tdbp , first right after the 1 year warranty was over the LEDs in the front started to go bad, about 2 year later it started with the grinding noise and stopped cooling on the refridgerator side, had to have a service man come out and defrost the entire thing and replace some circuit card. A year later it did the same thing. Went and bought a new fridge yesterday, I was just sick of it, samsung wanted me to purchase a 1 year warranty on it for 450 bucks. It is now gone.

  • Roberta Benton April 8, 2015

    I am having similar problem with my refrigerator bought Jan 2013 #RFG297HDWP. Its rusting on front door below ice maker. Makes a lot of buzzing noises. Can you please tell me how to add my name to the class action law suit? Thanks (I will never buy another Samsung appliance; I will go back to Whirlpool)

  • Unhappy with Samsung! April 13, 2015

    I have model RF268AB and have water and ice buildup under the deli tray. Is this class action still active? I would like very much to be included. This is the second product from Samsung that let us down. We will never purchase another.

  • Jay Alexander April 15, 2015

    Mine is continually freezing in the back of the refrigerator and the vents. the fridge will not cool to below 50 but the freezer goes to below zero. My model is RFG297AARS. I paid a 2K plus for mine a few years ago and am not happy. Have noticed this happening over the last couple years getting progressively worse. Add me to the suit.

  • Yung April 15, 2015

    What a remorse, I have RS267TDWP/XAA bought this from Lowe October 2010 and having icing problems every six months. I would like to be included in a class action law suit. Future consumers should be warned about Samsung refrigerator icing issues.

  • Yendry April 19, 2015

    tengo los mismos problemas que ustedes con mi refrigerador sansumg modelo RS 261 lo compre hace dos años y me cambiaron uno por problemas hace un año y algo el otro hace 10 días dejo de funcionar la pantalla frontal la cual lo único que puedo es agarrar agua y la luz se queda encendida,compre una pantalla nueva y sigue con el mismo decir estos refrigeradores an salido malísimo

  • Kasia April 23, 2015

    I have a very similar issue with model RF197ACWP/XAA…experiencing ice buildup on the evaporator coil, water leaking into the vegetable bins and under them..How do I get in on this class action law suit?

  • Bruno Davis April 23, 2015

    We bought a RS261MDBP side by side and 2 years later the computer went out…shortly after the fan was replaced due to icing up behind it and contacting the blades. Also bought their highest end front load washer n dryer with issues too within a few years! Never will buy Samsung appliances ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Earl April 24, 2015

    Purchased from Lowe’s, model RF26XAEPB, 2010, and we are also experiencing the same issues with coils freezing and standing water under the bins. Please add us to the lawsuit. We should have know better than to buy a Samsung product again. We purchased a front loader washer/dryer set and after months of trying to get a “certified” repairman for service (it was still under warranty at the time), we took Lowe’s to task and they replaced with a new washer/dryer set of our choice/brand.

  • Kent Libby April 26, 2015

  • M. Taylor April 26, 2015

    I have model # RF217ACPN and I am having the same problem. It only lasted a week before freezing again after thawing out for 2 days. I am waiting for Lowes to respond to my complaint about this Samsung refrigerator. I do believe the company should stand behind its customers, we are the ones who keep them growing.

    • M.T. May 5, 2015

      Lowes has refuse to do anything, stating I did not purchase the extended warranty. They knew of problems with the Samsung refrigerators, but still continued to sell them in their stores. Samsung only warranties their refrigerators for 1 year. What does that say about their products, you pay a small fortune for their product and they nor lowes backs it.

  • Eric April 26, 2015

    We had the same problem. Our model is RF266AERS

  • Russell Brewer April 26, 2015

    RF268ABRS with same issue and other problems. Currently in need of our 3rd instrument panel. First was replaced under warranty and 2nd one has exact same issue. LEDs not working which is needed to navigate through the functions on dispenser. Also both top and bottom ice makers need complete breakdown monthly to function correctly.

  • anita welych May 3, 2015

    We bought our Samsung side-by-side model # RS263TDWP last fall when the old fridge failed. I noticed a different noise yesterday and today the fridge side isn’t cooling. :^( Looked up information, vacuumed coils and played with temp. controls. Read some more and found this website. Checked the refrigerator behind the vegetable bins and found ice. I don’t know how to remove that back panel to get all the ice off but hope to learn when the repairman comes by tomorrow. UGH. I paid a ton of money for the refrigerator! Will be writing the NJ judge soon to be added to the CAL.

  • tuan nguyen May 5, 2015

    Hi, I have the model RF267AERS/XAA has the same issue, please add me to the lawsuit. Bought in 11/2009, just over 5 years now and started having this problem. Top fridge out not cool down past 55F, ice maker not working, fan making loud noise, ice built up in fridge, freeze is working fine. Water spilling in fridge. Very frustrated to buy an expensive fridge with problem so soon.

  • Jeannie Heath May 10, 2015

    Model RF217ACPN – aprx. 3 years old – throwing out food AGAIN today 3X – I know its frozen up – Have had water build up under crisper drawers and the refrigerator not get cold due to ice. This is junk….. Annual repairs is not acceptable, annual loosing my food is not acceptable. Sales person of course said was great………If you need, I can find date of purchase from Sears ….. Had to pay MORE than a larger unit because not a lot of selection in my space size – they know that and charge accordingly, then to have it be a joke. I only got 10 years out of my old GE and I thought that was bad.

  • DM May 11, 2015

    We have the same issue with Samsung refrigerator model RS263TDRS/XAA purchased in 2011. The fan makes loud noise and stops as soon as door is opened. The icing inside the casing is leading to this fan noise. Samsung sucks. Add me to lawsuit. Please send confirmation when done and send updates on the lawsuit. Thank you.

  • steve pape May 11, 2015

    I have a RF267AERS and I am running into the same icing issues, how can I get added to the lawsuit?

  • eym May 13, 2015

    So we all have the same or similar problem and are asking to join the lawsuit which doesn’t seem to even exist. How do we move ahead from here? Complaining is not going to solve the problem with Samsung. We need a lawyer.

  • Bill Furlong May 14, 2015

    Same story here. Bought the Model rs261mdbp/xaa when it first came out, Im assuming it was 2012. Had one instance where Ice was forming. Defrosted and cleaned, lost all the food, but it continued to work. Now here I am, May of 2015, and the fridge just decided to quit cooling on either side 2 nights ago. All food lost. Hopefully there will be some movement on retribution for all of our troubles. If anyone is reading this, please contact me at my email- My name is Bill Furlong. Thanks.

  • Elizabeth R May 18, 2015

    RS263TDPN is our model number. We have had a Samsung fridge for 2 years and know ours has ice in the lower part of the fridge. Nothing is blowing, melted the ice days ago and it is back. This is really frustrating. My model is there any hope for us? It is a side by side. Thanks!!

  • Elizabeth R May 18, 2015

    Is there a way to get added to the lawsuit? Thanks!!

  • Jacqueline Avila May 20, 2015

  • Lacie Root May 22, 2015

    Purchased Samsung RF267ABWP 6 years ago it has had ice build up from month one but had not stopped any of the cooling. Well now the whole thing is now frozen and the freezer is now building up so much ice it won’t shut. The refrigerator is not cooling and mold was starting to form on the shelves. For the price of this I feel like it should have worked better to begin with and lasted at least 10 years.

  • wai siu May 25, 2015

    I have a rf26hfendsr , got it 6 months ago, today the freezer evaporator fan is making loud noise already!!Wonder if I got the same bump style like you all. Anyone knows who is the lawsuit admin.?

    We have model RF217ACPN. This unit has had issue a number of times but I was able to defrost enough for it to start working . Now I must remove the inside panel to replace heater or sensor. Appears to be a defect in the design. One shouldn’t have to put up wit his unreliability. Add me to the class action !!!!!!

  • Ruben May 26, 2015

    Add me to the class action I have the same problem with the RS261MDRS. Add me to the list

  • Danielle Carno May 27, 2015

    Model: RF263AEWP the same thing is happenning!! I purchased a refrigerator a little less than 3 years ago. After a little over a year, we had to have a part replaced for around $300, 8 months later the same part broke again and we again had to have it replaced. We are now hearing the same sounds and will have to spend another $300 to have the same part replaced. Each time it breaks, we lost a refrigerator full of groceries. I have asked for a replacement in a difference model as it is obvious that the refrigerator must be defective. I am not trying to get a hand out, but we have now come to a point where we will have paid as much in repairs as we have for the refrigerator originally, which is not ok in the short time we have had it. I was told a replacement was not possible. They gave me a service ticket where someone is going to call me in 2 business days. The told me there was no way they would replace the refrigerator.

  • Travis Landry May 27, 2015

    I have a RS261MBDP/XAA model side by side refrigerator that is having the same problems as being describe with the evaporator coils freezing up and temperature dropping in both the freezer compartment and fridge side causing me to lose everything when it happens.

Is Samsung expecting that the consumer spend upward of $200 for the same repair ? Where do we sign to join CAL?

  • annonomus June 1, 2015

  • Jeff June 1, 2015

    About 18 months ago, we purchased a similar model Samsung (RS261MDRS/XAA), and it has been the noisiest appliance we have ever seen. The ice maker fan (?) is horrendously noisy… and the fan design-noise issue seems a likely culprit. Any action pending for this model, or can we get it included? Thanks!

  • Carol June 2, 2015

    We have been having the same problems with our refrigerator. Lots of ice build up underneath the freezer compartment. Is there anyone we can contact to get in on the class action lawsuit.

  • Arlene June 3, 2015

    I purchased my Samsung Refrigerator (model # RF217ACPN) a few years ago from Best Buy. Freezer is running but the refrigerator coils froze up. We have spent most of the day defrosting it. I’m assuming this is going to be an ongoing issue for now on. Worst product I have ever bought. My spare refrigerator is from the 90s and is still running great. Is the class action suit still open and whatever happened if it has been settled. Please add me to the list of complaints.

  • Karen June 6, 2015

    I have a Samsung french door refrigerator that is only three years old. It is not one of the models listed and it should be because there is nothing but trouble with it. It freezes the whole refrigerator and then has to be shut down and thawed out….the drain is not working and lets water into the veggie bins. When it starts to freeze the veggie bins freeze all the vegetables! What a piece of junk this thing is. Anyway please add model number RF217ACPN/XAA to your list. My husband and I are now retired but I have gone back to work so we can live like we did before and I really dislike manufacturers selling junk products and acting like they are ok……….When they are not!! Please contact us at the above email to be added to your list.

    We have model #RS263TDPN/XAA. ONLY A FEW YEARS OLD, now NOT COOLING. Had an issue with ice maker within a week of buying it. was fixed under warranty. Now food going bad. Freezer fine, but fridge will not cool. Ridiculous for a fridge to go out and not that old! Can I join this suit?

  • Dustin Kirkpatrick June 13, 2015

    We have the RS253BABB model. The fridge was new when we bought out house and it has always leaked. Thought it was the water line hook up so we unhooked it, but the leaking continued. Noticed the door wasn’t closing which essentially was where the leaking came from because the ice build up over the coil like part in the back of the fridge was pushing the drawers out and not allowing the fridge to seal. We would love to get into this CAL so if anyone has any idea how we would greatly appreciate it. Fridge looks nice, but it’s job isn’t being done by not keeping our food cold. The freezer is working great btw!! Thanks everyone!

  • Mark spence June 14, 2015

    I have an RS265TDRS SAMSUNG FRENCH DOOR FRIG since day one been NOTHING BUT problems. Replaced the fan motor and a bunch of other parts. No ice maker, constantly freezing over.

  • Betty Faircloth June 16, 2015

    Purchased SamSung Refrigerator Model RF-197ACRS May 2012 with 1 yr. warranty plus 2 yr. extended warranty. Repair Master was called twice for freeze up problem in refrigerator back wall and one time for broken door spring. Its June 2015 and the back wall where the fan is located is now frozen again. I have no warranty. SamSung should be responsible for problems that can not be repaired. How can I join the Class Action Law Suit? How does SamSung get by without being responsible for compensating customers for their manufacturing problems?

  • Betty Faircloth June 16, 2015

    I purchased SamSung Modle RF-197ACRS in 2012, with 1 yr warranty and 2 yrs extended warranty. I had to call Repair Master for the freeze up problem in the back refrigerator wall in 2013 and again 2014, and in 2015 for a broken door spring. This is June 2015 and the back refrigerator is frozen again and I have no warranty. How does a company like SamSung get by without having to fix their manufacturing problems that all their customers are experiencing with all models of refrigerating? Why don’t they take all of their Refrigerators off the market. I didn’t know we had companies in the US like this.

  • Pauline Israelian June 17, 2015

    my fridge model 267AERS has the same problems as others listed. Water in the crisper drawers and on the floor of the refrig. Please add this model number to your list.

  • Bethany June 18, 2015

    I have model RF26XAEBP and it does the same thing. It is driving me crazy! We have to have it fixed at least every six months. You could buy a new fridge with the money it costs to have it repaired that often. And I had a lovely bout of food poisoning last week! Why is this model not on the list for this lawsuit?

  • KK June 19, 2015

    Samsung RF26XAERS add us too. We have a issue with the ice maker the ice its not producing ice properly and it turns into one huge clump of ice instead of ice cubes that can be dispensed through the ice dispenser. The shaved ice part doesn’t work right at all. It also makes a loud banging noise when the ice bricks basically lol drop. There is also water underneath the vegetable/meat trays I clean it up it comes back over and over. Today we now have a very loud noise coming from the back of it. When you open the doors it stops. So we have to unplug it for awhile. This thing cost $2600 new. Its Bs to have to go through so much trouble on a less then 5 yr old fridge.

  • Dale Spoonemore June 21, 2015

    I bought the rf26xaers Samsung fridge from lowes in 2010. The freezer ices over every week and the ice maker freezes up daily. I’d like to be added to the lawsuit.

  • courtney June 22, 2015

  • Humphrey Peterson June 25, 2015

    We purchased the RF267AERS model. We have the same problem. Drain does not work, ice under vegtable bins and pull out drawer. Water all over the floor leaking. We have had repair men out three times for the same problem. I want in on the Class Action Suit. We paid alot of money for this refrigerator and have had nothing but problems. When the repair men come they take one look at Samsung and know the problem immediately. How can Samsung not be fixing this problem for all the people that relied on them for a good product.

  • mike steckler June 26, 2015

    I have a French door refrigerator from Samsung serial number JJ084GBB300702B, Model # RF-266AEWP which has been freezing up since it was purchased every 3 months on average. Please add me to the lawsuit, Samsung is just as irresponsible as GMs ignition switches which could have been fixed for $.50 Had they stepped up and done a recall, they wouldn’t be in this public relations train wreck.

  • Ethen Tsai June 27, 2015

    I also have a french door refrigerator from Samsung (serial number 43F14GBB400364H, Model # RF-263AERS) that has been stopped working (no cool generated) for several months. I just finally got a local repair person to check it out and replace a frozen fan (it cost me $263.22). It is working for now but I guess the same problem will come back again if the defect design is not corrected. Please add me to the lawsuit. Samsung should step up with a recall, otherwise this public relations mess will continue to grow!

  • Bill Thielman June 28, 2015

    About four years ago we bought one of you Refrigerator/Freezers. To be specific it was a:
    Model #: RFZ67AEWP
    Serial #: JJOD4GBB400216J

    First, a little background on me. For about 25 years as an engineer I designed commercial Ice Makers ( Ice-O-Matic and Cold Draft) and Refrigerators and Freezers (Traulsen) so I have a bit of a working knowledge about the issues below.

    After the installation we opened it up and noticed that the two labels on the left interior wall were stuck on crooked. To us this was a sign that if the person in charge of applying these stickers had no pride in the job they were hired to do. Then to think that the Quality Control Department didn’t care enough to have it corrected, what does it say about the rest of the unit?

    Next, after it ran for a while we tried the Ice Dispenser. After dispensing some ice and removing the glass, about a second later another cube was dispensed which bounced off the tray (the glass was already removed) and onto the floor. I thought this was maybe a “start-up” glitch. I was wrong. My best guess is that least one time out of eight uses, one or two cubes are dispensed after the glass has been remover from the actuator.

    Then, after about a year, we notice ice buildup on the evaporator. We shut the unit off, emptied everything out and left the doors open to defrost the evaporator. I then removed the cover to see if there was something obviously affecting the proper function. I didn’t notice anything so I reassembled it, turned it back on and put the food back in.

    About six months later the evaporator was frozen up again. This time we called the Sears Service Department (we bought it through Sears). They sent out a technician to fix the problem. (He also broke the water supply line to the ice maker which caused $30,000 worth of damage to our house.)

    After about another six months the evaporator was frozen, again. This time we called a well respected local appliance repair service. The only thing he could deduce was that “maybe the Mother-Board was bad”. He ordered a new one and installed it. He also mentioned he had seen “a lot of issues with Samsung refrigerators”.

    Here it is, six month later and guess what, it’s frozen up again.

    After about the first year of ownership we seriously thought about throwing this piece of junk away, but we spent so much money on it we decided to continue to try to make it work. Now after another three years (and many hundreds of dollars) we realize what a mistake this has been. I will make a point (via internet and word-of-mouth) that as many people as possible know my opinion of this product.
    Please add us to the Law Suit.

  • Paul Jerrell July 4, 2015

    I also have all the above problems with my RS265TDP ,Samsung refrigerator.Freezer side works fine, But refrigerator side heats up to 58 degrees.Had horrible experience with Samsung’s customer service dept. Contacted them several times and all were negative ,with no help at all,only wanting me to purchase a $385.00 one time warranty .Had all the same problems ,as everyone else it looks like.I contacted a local technician who came out for about 2 hours .defrosting machine with a steam gun.He knew exactly what the issues were as soon as he arrived.He advised me that this was an existing issue that Samsung was very aware of.If any one knows how or can advise me as to how to get or join a Class action law suit ,I certainly would love to ,or just get a chance to voice my humble and horrific experience with the Samsung’s brand.Feel free to contact me ,Any help would be great. Thanks for reading.

  • Ethel Lambert July 6, 2015

    My Samsung side-by-side model RS267TD has the same issues, and the noise is driving me insane!!! Please tell me what to do to become a part of this class action suit. I have had nothing but problems with all of my Samsung appliances and they are only five years old.

  • chen li July 7, 2015

    I have a Samsung french door refrigerator that is only 2 and half years old. It is not one of the models listed and it should be because there is nothing but trouble with it. It freezes the whole refrigerator and then has to be shut down and thawed out….the drain is not working and lets water into the veggie bins. When it starts to freeze the veggie bins freeze all the vegetables! What a piece of junk this thing is. Anyway please add model number RF217ACPN/XAA to your list.above email to be added to your list. Two days ago, it finally stopped working, both freezer and fridge temperature is 80 degree, it wont cooling no more, totally piece of junk.

  • Susan MacDowell July 9, 2015

    Bought a Samsung French Door Refrigerator with freezer on bottom in 2011. Recently it was not working due to freezing up solid and paid $263.91 to have repaired on 5/15/15. Same problem is happening now. Lost about $400.00 in groceries from May to current date. What can I do to be compensated?

    • Susan MacDowell July 9, 2015

  • julie July 13, 2015

    add me and my fridge to the list! rf26xaers!
    called Samsung, our warranty expired last month! They would not help, other than telling me it would be at my expense… Sad. They claim they have no record of this being a problem! I told them to go look at the internet.. He said he doesn’t have access.. LOL!

  • Carma July 14, 2015

    I have a different model RF261BEAESR/AA with different problems, 13 months old. The problem is that there are unpleasant odors and sizzling/hissing sounds coming from the back of my refrigerator. Samsungs customer service tells me to clean it out with baking soda and make sure it is dry before adding the contents back in. I ate some grapes and my mouth and throat started stinging and feeling sore. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this same problem? Please add me to your class action lawsuit list. I have a Samsung TV and my husband has a Samsung Phone; which seems to be working well. After reading these reviews I will never buy another Samsung refrigerator. I worked hard for my money to be able to purchase this refrigerator. Veryfurstratedcustomer

  • Kelvin July 15, 2015

    Our fridge has been a nightmare since the day we bought it. Samsung RS267TDRS. We have had ours since 2011. Had it serviced shortly thereafter. Still having problems with the ice maker. Now it has completely shut down.

  • Arik July 17, 2015

    our RF266AE has the exact same problems with ice in the back and water on the bottom. The fridge is three years old.

  • debbie patalonis July 20, 2015

    I have had my Samsung French Door Refrigerator for 2 years Model RF217ACPN. Icing had been forming under veggie/fruit bin. Called repairman for $125.00. He used a turkey baster with hot water to unclog hole behind back panel. This worked for a couple of weeks then problem re-occurred. I tried same. Worked for a couple of weeks now ice is back. Not sure what to do next. He could also not turn off ice machine switch. I have no ice maker. Can I be part of class action suit?

  • Ypau July 21, 2015

  • JAMES July 22, 2015

    I have a RF263AEWP model Samsung with all the same problems how do I get more info on this class action lawsuit. I am sick of loosing money other month and having to empty my fridge out to thaw out so it will work right for another month or two or three. $2400 is a lot of money for a fridge that dose not stay cold.

  • Kathy July 23, 2015

    I have a samsung RF217ACPN with water leaking in drawers. Just looking to see how to fix this problem and came across this lawsuit. I would like to be a part of it. Please let me know what I need to do. Something needs to be done for all of these people that are have the same issues. Very disappointed in Samsung.

  • Sherrie felio July 23, 2015

    I have model rf263beaesr that has been serviced 5 times since 1-2013. Now the service company can’t get the parts. I ordered the part on line. There was only one available. The refrigerator is freezing the food and the temperature reads normal. So far we have put about 600.oo into this outside of the warranty. Any advice would be appreciated. Motherboard replaced, ice cube maker replaced twice and now we installed the assembly cover evap-ref;aw1.

  • Mark Glaser July 24, 2015

    Unit RF267ABRS same freezeover and water under bin. We noticed our laminate floor buckeling so I figured a icemaker leak and shut off the water to it. Floor continued to get worse and I pulled out dishwasher assuming that might be slow leaking. Floor continuing to buckle I noticed lots of water and ice under bin. I could see the vent holes in the back clogged with a heavy buildup of ice. I am currently in the process of defrosting the fridge instead of paying $500+ for a repairman. I have approximately $4000 of damage to my laminate and all posts I read says there is no fix as it is a design issue. I wish I knew how to join a class action lawsuit.

  • Holli Grabenstein July 25, 2015

    We have the same ice build up – fan motor breaking because of it. Our model # is RS265TDBP. This happened after we had it only one year! We had to pay a lot to a repair man. Now its happening again! Ugh! This is a bad fridge! I want compensation and a new fridge!

  • Kelly July 26, 2015

    I have been having continuous issues with my Samsung refrigerator/freezer- building up ice and not maintaining temperature. My model # is….. RS2534WW1XAA…. from reading these post… it appears Samsung just shouldnt be making refrigerator/freezers. Maybe they need to stick to Technology instead! (lol). Where are the recalls of these defective appliances and why isnt Samsung held accountable by giving free repairs to customers who purchased these appliances…? I want something done as a consumer, I feel as though I should not have to bear cost of a manufacturing defect by Samsung!!!!….. Add me to lawsuit as well.

  • Kelly July 26, 2015

    Very informative and true to my defaulty Samsung refrigerator/freezer!

  • Karen July 26, 2015

    Please add my name to the CAL. My Samsung FR263AEWP is only 3.5 years old and it gives me fits with the same problem as described above every time the weather gets warm and humid. The only summer I did not have problems was the first one after I bought it. We were renting a house with a really inadequate fridge in a huge kitchen, so I bought the additional fridge of my choice and took it with me when we left. That house had central AC, as did the house we sold in Cincinnati where I bought my first Samsung French door fridge in 2009 and never had a problem. We finally purchased our retirement home in 2013 – a little cape in the mid-Hudson valley where it gets quite humid in the summer. We brought our Samsung fridge out of storage and began using it when we remodeled our kitchen. Since then, we have had problems with it every time the weather gets hot & humid. We do not have central air here and in order to save $$, we usually do not run the big window AC in our dining room unless the weather is unbearable. We only use our bedroom window AC at night. I suspect that the Samsung fridge was not tested to run in humid environments, as that seems to be where we have encountered problems. I had to get up this morning and empty out my fridge and leave the doors open so the built up ice would melt. Most of my food is stored in two picnic coolers on my DR table and some of it got moved to the fridge that was originally in our kitchen but got relocated to the basement when we moved the Samsung in to take its place. Fortunately, I also have a commercial sized upright freezer. It is still full of food from the Samsung that I squeezed in their last week when I completely defrosted our French door fridge. This time, I left our refrigerator plugged in and the freezer has continued to work fine so I did not have to remove anything from that section. I just left the fridge doors open and listened to that dinging sound which warns that the doors are open. When we returned from church this morning, the temp in the fridge (doors open) had gotten up to 70 degrees but there was still ice in the channels in the back of the fridge, so we got an extension cord and our hair dryer to melt the remaining visible ice in the channels before I closed up the fridge doors and turned the temp down again. Meanwhile, I have come to the conclusion that I am going to have to run my large AC constantly until if and when this situation is remedied. If we have to replace this refrigerator, we will have to rip out and replace the kitchen cabinets near the door and our built-in microwave just to get our current fridge out and a new fridge in. I love the French door styling with the freezer on the bottom, but would never purchase another from Samsung.

  • AJ July 30, 2015

  • Bob Smith August 1, 2015

    Please tell me how to join this class action lawsuit. Purchased the French door style January 2013 and have had trouble with it ever since. It should be against the law for Samsung to continue marketing these refrigerators!!!

  • Shara Trevino-Crespo August 3, 2015

    This by far is the worst refrigerator!! I bought my Samsung a year ago and haven’t really been able to use the freezer. It freezes over and not error 22E/21E keeps displaying. I got it repaired-new fan, etc and we’re back to the same problem!!!

  • Eric G August 4, 2015

    I would like to be added to the CAL as well. I have a RF267AERS that just recently started to have this issue (first real humid summer with it). Very annoying, I lost a huge amount of food and had to defrost the damn thing for two days. I cant believe I spent this much on a fridge that cant even defrost itself. My $500 craigslist garage fridge works better.

  • Amrita August 5, 2015

    I would like to be added to this suit. Even with extended warranty Samsung is unable to fix the cooling problem.. Their parts are always back-ordered. Its more that 2 months and they wont replace the fridge. Hate both the fridge and their extended warranty called protection plus

  • Joe Anderson August 6, 2015

    I have a Samsung model RS261MDRS/XAA01, it us almost 2 years old. About 6-8 months ago the freezer fan started making a clicking noise due to ice build up around the fan. I thought it might be caused by a leaking solenoid valve to the ice maker so I valved off the water make up line. That helped for about 3 weeks, then the fan noise was back. I started to take a warm air gun and blow around the fan and that would help for about a week. Now warming the area around the fan will only last for a day or so. I called the Samsung 800 number and spoke with a lady and she could not give me any help except to send a technician to my home, and after reading all the above post I told her no thanks if she could not give me any help I would rather junk the refrigerator than throw away good money. Will the model unit be included in any class action law suit?

  • Eric Kaeding August 6, 2015

    I have a Samsung model RS265TDWP that does the same thing and I want to take it back to lowes and tell them to stick it where the sun never shines. I t freezes up about 3 times a year.

  • Steve S August 14, 2015

    Same problem with our RF267AERS. Freezing up rear coils plugged drain, ice obstructing fan. Shame on Samsung. I have TV, Cell, Refrig. No More. DONT BUY SAMSUNG. Poor Quality and not customer service. Also, DO NOT TRUST JD Powers quality ratings. JD POWERS rate Samsung 5 out of 5 stars best refrigerator way above the rest. They are either getting paid or their quality research is faulty. Look at all the people on just this site with issues? A lot of scamming going on out there, buyer beware!

  • Kathy August 17, 2015

    we too are having the same problem. It was fine for the first 9months since then we have to turn off the fridge until it thaws then turn it back on. It’s good for a month or so then we have to do it again. With what the Samsung appliances cost you would expect better quality. I could have gone to lowes and paid 500.00 for one and probably had better service. So you get what you pay for is not always the truth

  • dEBORAH hOLBROOK August 18, 2015

    My samsung fridge, model number RF323TEDBSR/AA is completely dead . We purchased the fridge in 2012 and now have a 2500.00 pile of junk in our kitchen. Samsung will not acknowledge their fault in this mess. We cannot even get parts to have the fridge repaired as there is a back order for parts. The back-order is due to the enormous amount of people suffering with the same problems. Please tell me that a lawsuit against Samsung has been started. My fridge died the day before my sons graduation party. My son is a veteran and his graduating from college was a struggle and a triumph. However, his party was spoiled because we had no fridge. All of my family that came from out of state pulled together and went out to eat. This was two weeks ago and I am still waiting on parts to repair my 2500.00 mistake.

  • Andre Doss August 18, 2015

  • Rita Esposito August 26, 2015

    This is unacceptable by Samsung to not even acknowledge that they designed and sold defective refrigerators. I have the RF217 ACPN every 3 months I have to defrost my refrigerator to stop water from leaking the crisper bins. Very aggravating!!!! This began shortly after the 1 year warranty was up, how convenient for Samsung.

  • Andre September 7, 2015

    I purchased a Samsung French Door refrigerator for $1574.41 in May of 2011. We began having problems with it last year when it began chiming constantly, temp control didn’t work and icing of coils. I called Samsung and since it was out of warranty them told me to pound sand. I replaced the temp sensor, that didn’t work, then replaced the fan motor, that worked for a year now it beeping/chiming again. What a piece of s__t! Id like in on the class action lawsuit.

  • Alisha September 9, 2015

    Too bad I didn’t find this info back when we got our fridge ! Same issues listed above ! Freezing up. Such a waste of $!! Things don’t last like they should and cost more !!

  • Gina Chung September 11, 2015

    We’re having the same issue with our model RF20HFENBSR. We purchased this fridge about 3 1/2 months ago. For at least a month, we noticed drinks and food wasn’t getting as cold as our old fridge but thought maybe our old fridge was working overtime since the temp display was showing 38 degrees. Then I started to notice mold on food much quicker than expiration date and decided to do some research. We tried unplugging the fridge and plugging it back in and the temp display showed 55 degrees. And since then the temp wouldn’t go back down. Btw, I’m 7 1/2 months pregnant so am worried that I’ve been eating spoiled meat and food. Called Samsung today and they told me to turn off the fridge and defrost it. I’m hoping eating all this spoilt food has not affected my unborn baby. Does anyone have any new information about this?

  • Wendy September 19, 2015

    We have Samsung RF26XAEBP since March 2010. In the past 2 years we have been dealing the same problems. No help from Samsung and no any fridge technicants want to come to fix Samsung fridge in our area. We like to join the suit.

  • Alice September 20, 2015

    I have the Samsung RF26VAB that has this very same problem. Can you expand this lawsuit to cover the rest of us that unfortunately bought these defective refrigerators? I even had the extended warranty but it just ran out as well. My freezer works great, but the food spoils quickly in the refrigerator portion. I had water and ice continuously in the bottom under the crisper drawers for over a year, and then it just quit cooling at all. Perhaps, you can email us and let us know what recourse we have if it is too late to join this CAL. Thanks.

  • Mirela Hardy September 29, 2015

    I have a Samsung Refrigerator ,French doors . I would like to join the law suit too. I had problems for quite a wile ,bought the fridge 4 years ago and the ice maker stopped working a year an a half after. I thought was our fault ,had no idea this refrigerator is not good. We paid around $2000 at that time. For the past year it stated building water and later iced under the crisp drawers. We checked the water line , no issue there so now I found that is a real problem with the refrigerator . My freezer doesn’t want to keep my food frozen either ….such a shame for the company. I used to buy only Samsung products ,never thought the refrigerator is such a bad quality.

  • Bob Osgood October 2, 2015

    I have seen a lot of request on how to be part of this law suite, but no answers to that question. I also would like to be involved in it. Please someone, post a link or something.

  • Mike Mannifield October 9, 2015

    Model RF260BEAEBC French Door side by side with freezer and ice maker on the bottom. Same problem, the fan started to sound like it was going to take off and then the next day complete silience. Although it read that it was 34 degrees nothing was cold. Lost food. Paid a repair man whom advised me that this is common for Samsungs like this. We were told the only answer is to turn if off and let the ice melt for atleast 48 hours. This doesnt make me happy as this was just made in June 2013 and we purchsed almost 2 years ago. I also want to add the the cheap plastic clip on the door flap has broken 2 times also which meant that the door wouldnt close correctly. We paid a lot of money for this Samsung Junk!!! I realllly want in on this class action suit.

  • Vladimir Kuljanin October 12, 2015

    I have same issue with my Samsung RF267AERS for couple of years. I purchased this fridge in 2010. It was not cheap and now I have to deal with manually putting it all apart and defrosting every 3-5 months. I want in on this class action suit.
