Samsung RS265 FRENCH DOOR SIDE BY SIDE
I hate this fridge but I don't know that any are any better ones on the market.
It was the same reason I about cried when my old fashioned washer and dryer died. I have a 'low water' one now, with 'sensors' and all kinds of choices, but I would pay double to have what just lasted me 18 years and 3 boys and that cleaned my clothes.
Okay, back to the fridge:
1) crappy water pressure from the water dispenser...and it's not our sink because this is a common problem too. I like to always say something positive, so if you want to put your cup there and have to take a shower or something, it will not overflow folks. Most phone apps that track how many glasses of water you drink per day self adjust if you have this fridge; they only ask that you get 3-4 in.
2) But the worst thing, it is so common and so frequent that I think some class action law suit was filed in 2010...then they came out with new models that do the same thing. We bought ours in 2014.. Just look at how many you tube videos there are with people telling you how to fix the 'fridge doesn't cool' problem.
So in a nutshell: The design is such that ice builds up, stopping a little fan from moving. Not so bad of a home fix, EXCEPT..you can't rush it. I unplugged my fridge at 5 am, and had a warm home, and ran my hair dryer, and at 6pm I was able to get the friggin' screws out of the ice block. Now, another 12 hours to stabilize the temp. Thanks to the snow storm, I was able to save my food on the porch this time, but this is the third time in 3 years this has happened.
My parents had their fridge so long they got tired of it, so they put it in the basement as an extra one, and then got a new one somewhere in the 70's, which is still running. The freezer in their basement is still running. Let's see, I'm 55 and I don't remember when they got it but it's never, ever broken.
