Hi annieoaklie and barb9910, When the refrigerator is first installed it does have the potential to run for quite some time.  How cold do you have the settings?

Hi,  This is also happening to my fridge as well.  It is only 2 months old.  I was told that the compessor is made by differnt companies for Samsung and my refrig just got a loud one.  I am going to have them replace it and will see what happens after that.

Good luck with that. Hope it is still under warranty and they will wriggle out of that. Trust me.

We are having the same issue with our 3 week old RF260BEAESG French Door Fridge. It seems to be running nonstop now with the freezer temp set at 0 and the fridge temp set at 37 and the energy saver feature on.  Not sure what to do now but I don't want a $500 electric bill becuase of this refridgerator that's for sure.  Any help would be greatly appreciated before I call Lowes to start using my extended warranty right away. I don't want this Samsung piece to leave a bad taste in my mouth.

How long is is supposed to run? I’m barely in it. I turned the EnergySaver off then it stopped running, but then started back shortly later. It has been two days and still hasn’t seemed to shut off. It’s seems my 12 year old Whirlpool was more energy effecient. Is annoying to hear this thing  run constantly. It has an annoying pitch just enough to well...be annoying. I need to know if this is something I need to have returned while I still can. Settings are 4 (40 deg)/4 (0 deg).

Re: new fridge compressor & reliability

JUMP TO SOLUTION

If you think the compressor is an issue give 2 to 3 years and it will break down completely. We purchased the Rf28HFEDTFR/AA in Jan of 2014. Both ice makers have broken and we are being told the product is obsolete and parts are no longer available. Samsung doesn't seem to care. My recommendation is to return the refrigerator. Sadly we purchased a dishwasher and microwave. It has really jaded my view of Samsung.

Our fridge is running continuously and the freezer is on the lowest setting and the economy setting is on as well.  The setting was at 3 and I found the ice cream was too hard. When I dropped it to 1, it’s as hard as a Rock. I don’t know if it ran constantly before but it does now. Been in use for two weeks now. French door model
