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.

Twin Cooling System®

Twin Cooling System®

Samsung’s Twin Cooling System® uses two evaporators with only one compressor to independently control the temperatures of the refrigerator and freezer compartments to maintain proper humidity levels to keep foods fresher and to prevent odour transfers between compartments.
Illuminates everything it refrigerates

Illuminates everything it refrigerates

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..

Don't Use Power Saver mode

Don't use power saver mode ! When in PS mode fridge "hangs" and thinks that it is at temperature and no longer comes on. Display shows that temp is ok, but fridge no longer cools.

Lost a freezer full of food the first time this happend. After "rebooting" (unplugging and waiting a few minutes) the display shows the true temp and unit starts working again. After a few days we turned Power saver on again and fridge exhibited same problem a couple of weeks later. Did the "Reboot" again and have left the PS off without incident for over a year now. Who knew Samsung fridges were like computers.....must be running Windows !

Good size and design but fridge is not cold enough

Fridge was rated high on consumer report but we have had to put in two service calls in the past two years. Fridge does not get cool enough. Also, the ice dispenser spits out ice at such a rapid rate that some will always fall on the floor.

Meets All Of Our Requirements

I almost didn’t consider this model after reading several negative reviews. I then checked out the reviews of other models and other manufacturers (including more expensive ones) and found similar customer ratings.

This made me realize that people were more likely to send in negative reviews than positive ones. Here are my comments on this fridge and they are generally positive. Normal operation of the fridge is very quiet. There is some noise when ice is being dispensed but no more than can be expected when ice cubes drop into a plastic hopper. The temperature is not adjustable but it is perfect for our requirements. The refrigerator is set to 5C (41F) and the freezer is at -16C (3F). I monitored the temperature in several areas and was pleased to find that it was quite uniform. This suggests to me that the ventilation within the fridge and freezer as well as the insulation around them, is very adequate. The lighting is adequate and pleasantly soft. I would like to see another bin on the door for small items. There is room for it. A rack for beverage tins on the door would be very useful. Some manufacturers advertise stainless steel finishes that are resistant to finger marks. If these are effective, then Samsung should consider utilizing these finishes on their appliances. We have owned our refrigerator for over three months and overall, it meets all of our expectations.
