Samsung does not make stainless steel side panels for its refrigerators. I can tell you that the sides measure approximately 68" (h) x 29-1/8 (w). If you know of a shop that will make the panels for you, I would think they would probably want to take their own measurements. Thank you for the question.

Question

How accurate should the temperature display be?

Although the refrigerator is set to 38 degrees the temperature seems to be closer to 40-41 degrees (using multiple thermometers placed in multiple locations. I have to set the temp to 36 degrees to keep the temp consistently below 40. I have to set it to 34 (the coldest setting available) to keep the temp consistently at or below 38. The freezer seems to be the opposite. It is set to 0 degrees but a second thermometer consistently reads -4 degrees. The pantry drawer is typically at 36 degrees when on the "chill". the manual states it should be around 34 degrees.

Thank you for the question. The temperature controls on Samsung refrigerators are callibrated to sensors in the factory, and should be expected to be accurate within +/- 2°F, which is in line with industry standards. If the temperature on your RFG298AARS is varying by more than 2°F, I would suggest contacting your retailer or Samsung for service by calling 800-SAMSUNG or submitting an online service request form through this link: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o...

Great question! Samsung's "RFG" and "RSG" series refrigerators use a new, state-of-the-art insulation, as well as smaller components in the sealed system, to allow for more capacity within the same dimensions as other refrigerators. Best of all, Samsung accomplishes this without compromising the effectiveness of our Twin Cooling system - in fact we improved on it with these new models - and without compromising on efficiency.

Thanks for your interest!

To find a retailer near you that carries the RFG298, 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 or searching other zip codes in neighboring areas. Distribution of particular models changes frequently, so checking back periodically may yield different results. Thank you for your interest in Samsung!

If the display on your RFG298AARS reads "OF", this is an indication that it is in "Cooling Off" or "Demo" mode (see page 22 of the User Manual). To disable this mode and turn the cooling system on, press the Energy Saver and Freezer buttons simultaneously and hold for about 3 seconds until a chime is heard. Numeric temperatures should be displayed for both the refrigerator and freezer. Please refer to the User Manual for instructions on setting the temperature of each compartment.

Thank you for the question. The doors on your RFG298AARS should not stay open if they are within the radius of the "Cool Tight" door mechanism, which should automatically pull the door closed if it's open only a few inches. If your door is open more than that and it is not staying open, then it may not have been leveled properly. Please refer to page 15 of the User Guide for instructions on adjusting the height, using a carpenter's level to determine when the refrigerator is level both right to left and front to back. If doing so causes the doors to be uneven, then you can use the fasteners that came with the refrigerator to adjust the door height (see page 16).

Question

How to make the freezer door close automatically?

I purchased my first rfg298aars fridge 8/16/10 and had it replaced yesterday, 8/24/10 due to frosting on the door tracks in the freezer. Also, because the bottom freezer door would not automatically close. When the second freezer arrived yesterday, the freezer door closed beautifully. However, now that the freezer has reached the set temperature, the door no longer closes automatically. As of this time, I have not placed any food in the freezer, so I am assuming that overloading the drawer is not the issue. My greatest fear is that, expecting the freezer door to close automatically, it will not close completely and all of my frozen foods will thaw. How can this problem be solved?

While the RFG298AARS does not have a feature that enables the drawer to close automatically, adjusting the front leveling legs on the refrigerator so it leans back slightly will help the doors and drawer to close on their own. I would also suggest you visit the Troubleshooting Guide through the link below, then click on Operation > Freezer > Frost in the Freezer > Frost In The Freezer Due To The Freezer Door Not Closing Properly: http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber...

This article may help you avoid issues with frost in your new unit.

I'm sorry to hear you're having this issue. It can take up to 24 hours for the refrigerator and freezer to reach their set temperature, and the amount of time it takes is influenced by the difference between the set temperature and room temperature, as well as factors like humidity, the amount of air circulation around the sides, top and rear of the unit, and how frequently the door is opened during the cooling process.

Please check to make sure there are no packages blocking the air vents in the freezer. If, after 24 hours has passed, the freezer has not cooled sufficiently, please please submit an online service request through the link below, or call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who can assist you further.

Door seal doesnt work right

The door flap/seal attached to the left door only closes by itself about 1/2 of the time, and if the right door is already open the flap/seal only opens about 1/2 of the time. Looks like something is out of alignment, but I can't see any adjustments.

The flap between the doors of the RFG298AARS opens and closes by following a small track at the top edge of the opening to the refrigerator. If the left door is hanging too low, the flap may not be able to engage with its track. To correct this, you will likely need to adjust the height of the left door, either by releveling the refrigerator, or by installing one or more of the fastener rings that came with the refrigerator, or both.

Please refer to pages 15-16 of the User Manual, which can be downloaded as a pdf file from this website, for instructions on both types of adjustments. If the problem persists after making these adjustments, or if you need additional information to perform them, please call 800-SAMSUNG to speak with an agent who will be happy to assist you further.

Question

What is the freezer storage capacity on the RFG298 (with second ice maker) vs the RFG297 without it?

I can't decide between these two models. How much storage capacity will I lose in the freezer if I opt for the RFG298 over the RFG297. The second ice maker is not as valuable to me as extra storage capacity.

Actually, the measurable freezer storage capacity is the same at 8.8 cubic feet in both the RFG297 and RFG298, since the icemaker itself is recessed into the space above the ice storage bin. If the bin is not being used to store ice, it could be removed or used to store other items. The icemakers can also be turned off when not being used, so if you do choose to go with the RFG298, you would have the option of disabling the icemaker when you don't need it and turning it on if you do.

There are a number of products on the market specifically intended to clean real stainless steel. These can be found at a variety of retailers, including appliance, hardware and home improvement stores. Another option is to apply a small amount of baby oil to the stainless finish using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. This will not only clean the stainless steel, but will help prevent fingerprints from recurring.

Lowes does carry this model, but it's possible that other retailers do, as well. To find the retailer nearest to you that carries any particular model, including the RFG298AARS, I would suggest clicking on the "Where To Buy" button on the right side of the product home page. From there, you can input your zip code and find a list of retailers near you.

Is there a can rack for this model?

I just purchased this model and really like it. Unfortunately, it didn't come with any sort of can rack for the door. I saw can racks in the door of other Samsung models. Is there a can rack available for this model (RFG298 series)? Mine also didn't come with a wine rack, but that's not a big deal.

Samsung does not actually make a "can rack" for our French Door refrigerators. Many customers opt to store canned beverages in the CoolSelect Pantry Drawer for convenient access and controlled temperature. I would suggest using the 34-degree "Chill" setting cautiously, as the +/- 2-degree temperature variance could cause the cans to freeze. You may find the 38-degree "Fresh" setting to be a better choice for keeping beverages cold.

Thank you for choosing the RFG298!

Question

breakaway shelf? Platinum vs. stainless?

I like this model very much, but Lowe's does not have it in the store and I can not tell from the gallery pictures if one of the shelves on the right side of the refrigerator slides under itself (halfway) to store taller items? I believe there is already the flip up shelf on the top left - correct?

Also, I am confused about the platinum finish and the stainless steel finish - can you tell me the pros/cons of each and how they are different? Which one is darker than the other?

Thank you!

The RFG298AARS does indeed come with a retractable ("breakaway") shelf in addition to the flip-up shelf on the upper left next to the icemaker. The location of the retractable shelf is up to you - it can be set up on either the right or left side. Some customers prefer to place it on the left side under the flip-up shelf so they can store really tall items by "retracting" one shelf and "flipping up" the other.

There are several differences between real Stainless Steel and Samsung's Stainless Platinum. The key difference that many people note is that real Stainless is usually not magnetic, so if you like to hang photos and kids' artwork on your refrigerator, you might want to choose the Stainless Platinum because it is magnetic. Also, Stainless Platinum is fingerprint-resistant and very easy to care for. I wouldn't characterize one as being "darker" than the other; the difference is more in the sheen. Stainless Steel has the shiny-ness that is unique to real metal. Even if your local Lowes does not have the RFG298 available to see, they may very well have other French Door models displayed in real Stainless and Stainless Platinum, so you could see the difference for yourself.
