Samsung has not only the worst refrigerators but also the worst customer service ever! All I have been told is lie after lie, week after week! I paid monthly so I had a good refrigerator, because my 40 year old needed replacing. Now I'm stuck with a junk refrigerator and can't afford to buy another one.

I had the same problem with the same type Samsung fridge. Don't give up on them! It took me one replacement fridge and two years of aggrevation, but they finally did give me a full refund on the second junk one I had. Just stay after them and they will eventually fold.
The only downside to a refund is then you are stuck with a broken fridge to get rid of. Samsung doesn't want them back, so it will be up to you to get rid of it. It took me another year to even find a repairman that would take it for parts.
