Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

LED Lighting

LED Lighting
Unlike most refrigerators, Samsung refrigerators feature sophisticated, eco-friendly LED lighting inside. Designed to burn brighter and last longer, the LED not only illuminates the inside of the freezer so your favourite foods are easy to find, it helps you save energy. And because LED lighting emits less heat, it never competes with the cool climate inside. While it doesn’t give off much heat, its modern design definitely delivers a sleek sense of style.

EZ Open Handle

EZ Open Handle
Samsung EZ- Open Handle makes opening the freezer door a breeze, even when full and heavy by simply lifting and pulling the handle to open without any extra force.
Counter Depth

Counter Depth

Nice fridge, but with problems

The fridge was priced reasonably and was a perfect fit for our small kitchen, although its design makes it harder to fit in tall bottles. We have hadit for a year and it seems to be working well except that the paint has begun peeling off the handles.

This is a problem other people are also having, but Samsung will not cover it under its warranty. So you will be on your own with this problem. People on the Internet have recounted how they bought new handles and they also started to peel. I think this is an issue with Samsung models in general and not just this one.

Water leaks inside

I bought this fridge over 18 months ago and now I have water leaking inside of the fridge which then accumulates in the produce compartment. I have to dump the water every 3 days.

Since the manuf. warranty is only 1 year I'm out of luck. I also now learned that this might be a common issue with these fridges so buyer beware.

Looks like a big beautiful fridge...with a teeny tiny interior

We are a 2 person family and often find both the refrigerator and particularly the freezer section of this unit to be too small. The fridge, as previously mentioned the shelves go all the way across and this creates limited space for tall products.

We can only fit tall things (water jug, beer bottles, ketchup) on the middle shelf and only on half because the deli drawer takes up space on the other side. The butter holder doesn't hold a full stick of butter and because of the depth the deli drawer JUST fits a full length brick of cheese. It's not that bad though, for the most part everything does fit because we are just 2 people but if we ever entertain and have extra food/drinks in the fridge we have to compact things very well. The biggest space issue is in the freezer. We freeze a lot of stuff because we don't go through food fast enough to keep it fresh and the freezer is always jam packed and we have to move things around all the time to get it to close. It looks like a huge freezer from the front but because of the drawer inside it lacks the vertical space it looks like it has. If we had purchased this ourselves I would be disappointed and we won't be taking with us if we move.
