Thanks for the question. The only Apps currently available for the RF4289 are those that come pre-loaded which are ideally suited for the kitchen: search for recipes on Epicurious or view photos from a memory card or your online Picasa photo album; check the day's weather through WeatherBug, the latest news headlines on AP News, or your family's schedule from Google Calendar; follow your favorites on Twitter or listen to them on Pandora Radio; and leave notes and reminders for yourself or your family with the Memo feature. As updates become available it will be determined whether they'll be downloaded through the wifi or uploaded from an SD card.

Question

I have a RF4287HA can you tell me the wattage of the refrigerator

Answers
answer 1
Using the stated volts (115) and amps (11.6) the watts would be 1,334. What is not known is if there is a start-up surge that exceeds 1,334 watts which is not uncommon. I've not been able to get an answer from Ms. Samsung to this question. I need to know for generator load calculations, so without that number, I have to assume the max wattage that a 20AMP, 120V circuit can handle of 2,400 watts to be safe, though I would hope that this unit would not have that much extra on start-up and is probably no more than 1,600 watts.

The RF4287HA is rated for 115V/60 Hz/11.6 amps. I would suggest consulting with your power company or a local electrician for assistance selecting a surge protector that is rated appropriately for your refrigerator.

Question

How to delete Epicurious photos from model RF4289HARS

Dear Ms. Samsung,

We love to look at our own photos we have uploaded with an SD card from our camera....... BUT, the 10 preloaded photos of pies, cakes, and fruit came with the unit always intrude by inserting themselves into the screensaver theme. This does not appear to be a feature and acts more like a bug. I have attached one photo that shows a photo of strawberries on top of our own photos. When are you going to update this so that users can delete them?

I'm sorry to hear these pre-loaded photos are intruding on your personal photo album. At this point in time, the 10 pre-loaded photos cannot be deleted. As updates do become available, a software update icon will appear on the LCD screen, letting you know an update is available. Go to the S/W Update option in the Settings menu to download the update.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty accessing the Apps on your RF4289HARS. Please check to see if you have the latest software version installed by pressing the Settings button on the menu, then scrolling down to and selecting S/W Update. The next screen should tell you whether you have the most recent version already, or if there's a new version available. Installing the latest version (currently 2.322) should correct any issues with connecting to the Apps on your fridge. If it does not, please call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you further.

the RF4289 features Samsung's signature Twin Cooling Plus system, which maintains an optimally high humidity level (over 70%) throughout the refrigerator, your produce should last longer compared to conventional systems regardless of the setting on the drawer.

answer 2
Different fruits and vegetables have different storage needs with regard to the humidity level. To give you an example, items like lettuce, spinach and berries prefer high humidity (over 90%), while onions and squash prefer lower relative humidity (under 80%). Since the RF4289 features Samsung's signature Twin Cooling Plus system, which maintains an optimally high humidity level (over 70%) throughout the refrigerator, your produce should last longer compared to conventional systems regardless of the setting on the drawer. The drawer lever can complement the Twin Cooling, however: open the lever for lower humidity-loving fruits and veggies, and close the lever to increase it. A helpful trick to remember which produce loves higher humidity is to think of what items are kept on the sides of the produce aisle in the grocery stores (where they receive frequent "mistings" of water) and which are not.

Why does moisture form inside closed dishes or bags?

this happens in the snack drawer and the veggie drawers or in the body of the fridge

Answers
answer 1
I found the answer :

=====
The condensation you're referring to is normal and is likely to occur in any closed environment where warm air (from food placed inside) comes in contact with colder surfaces, or when the air cools naturally. The confined space of a closed dish or bag traps the moisture so the condensation is more visible, though the same principal applies to drawers, in general, and in the case of Samsung, to the entire refrigerator compartment.

This is because the RF4289, like many Samsung refrigerators, is equipped with Twin Cooling Plus, a system that helps to optimize the humidity level in the refrigerator by eliminating the transfer of air (including flavors and odors) between the refrigerator and freezer compartments. The higher humidity level in the refrigerator helps food stay fresh longer because it doesn't dry out as fast.

Thank you for the question,
Ms. Samsung
