Questions & Answers for samsung 21 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Question

Are the doors of all your bottom freezer refrigerators reversible (left/right hinges)?

The manual explains how to remove and replace the door, I guess for getting it through a narrow doorway. But it doesn't say anything about flipping the door hinge.

The doors on Samsung's bottom freezer style refrigerators produced since 2005 are reversible. The alternate hinge assembly should be included with the new refrigerator.

Follow this link, then click on "How to" for instructions on reversing the door swing: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

Thanks for the question!

The RB217ABPN has a pull-out drawer-style freezer. Both bins inside the freezer are of solid plastic construction, not wire.

The RB217ABPN is a free-standing and portable refrigerator, not a "built-in", though it can have a built-in appearance if the cabinetry is designed around the refrigerator's measurements.

The RB217ABPN's dimensions are 32-1/4" wide by 68-3/4" high (behind the hinge) by 26-3/4" deep (without door). Samsung recommends leaving 1" on each side, 2" on top and 2" behind the refrigerator to allow sufficient air flow for the cooling system to work properly and most efficiently. Therefore, if your goal is to have the RB217 appear built-in, the space for it should be 34-1/4" wide by 70-3/4" high by 28-3/4" deep.

Question

How do you attach the bottom freezer door handle?

The right side of the handle is attached but the left continues to pop off every time I open the freezer. I spoke with someone in parts and they sent two screws, but I'm not sure they are correct. There is no assembly diagram with the user manual or how to install handles for the freezer, only the refrigerator.

To find a retailer near you that carries the RB217ABPN, please click on the "Where to buy" button on the right side of the product's home page, then enter your zip code and select a radius. If this does not return the desired results, try expanding the radius, searching other zip codes in neighboring areas, or contacting retailers that carry the same model in other colors to see if they can order your preferred color. Distribution of particular models changes frequently, so checking back periodically may yield different results. Thank you for your interest in Samsung!

To cancel Cooling Off (Demo) mode on your RB217ABPN, press the Power Freeze and Freezer buttons at the same time for 3 seconds until a chime is heard. The compressor should turn on and the unit should start to cool right away.

The maximum depth of the RB217 with the door open is 59-1/2". The maximum depth of the counter depth model RFG237 with the bottom freezer drawer fully extended is 46-1/4", compared to the full depth RFG297, for example, which is 54-1/2" with the bottom freezer open the whole way.

Question

LED Lights

Will you have a single door bottom freezer with LED lighting on the inside like your french door models. I'm really interested in the counter depth single door bottom freezer you currently have, the only thing holding me back is the lighting. Please let me know thanks. Also would there a single door bottom freezer that's counter-depth that is wider to fit a standard opening better, close to 36". Thank You

The size for counter hight is perfect. There has been no problem with the lighting. There is plenty of room in the bottom freezer. The only problem I have is with water collecting in the vegetable bins. This is a result of condensation. I need to remove the bins on a daily basis in the summer and wipe both inside and below the bins as there is no other way to remove the water.

The RB217ABPN does not have an internal water filter for the icemaker. Instructions for installing an external water filtration system can be found on pages 11-12 of the User Manual, which can be downloaded from this link: http://tinyurl.com/y3yn6mn

Please note that the Samsung part number (DA29-00015A) mentioned on page 12 has been discontinued. Your local retailer should be able to help you choose a filtration system that best meets your needs.

download manual from website and they give exact requirements: In general 1 inch on sides and top and 2 in the back is enough. Since this model has indent in the side of the door as a "handle," make sure that the unit is 1 to 2 inches outside of the cabinet space.
We purchase this unit and are extremely pleased.

The RB217ABPN actually has Samsung's Stainless Platinum finish on the doors. The real Stainless Steel version of this model is the RB217ABRS. Though the doors on this model are stainless, the refrigerator cabinet (top and sides) are textured gray paint on metal.

The RB217ABPN can be hinged on the right or the left side. The factory default is for the unit to hinge on the right (opening from left to right), but the left hinge parts come packaged with each unit.

I'm sorry to hear you're having these issues with your RB217ABPN. The most likely explanation is that the door was removed, perhaps to fit through a doorway or to reverse the swing, and it was not reattached properly. Please review the instructions found on the following page to determine whether the wires are attached correctly: http://ars.samsung.com/customer/usa...

Since these wires control the "door ajar" beeping as well as the lights, it is important for them to be attached correctly. If this does not resolve the issue, I would suggest either contacting the installer, if this was a recent purchase, or Samsung directly for service, if the refrigerator had been working correctly, and these problems are a recent occurrence.

To initiate service through Samsung, please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you.
