We bought this refrigerator about 16 months ago and I am glad about one thing... I bought an extended warranty. The ice maker in this model and perhaps many other Samsung refrigerators is a faulty design, and it seems no amount of fixes will alleviate the problems. It freezes up, ice cubes overflow to the sides, and because warm air is entering from the refrigerator, the ice forms into a large chunk and it jams up the unit.
We've already had the service guy out to diagnose the problem 6 months ago, and he decided that the new and improved ice maker was the solution so about 3 weeks later he returned and installed the new ice maker. He showed me that the new unit had a higher lip and that was supposed to stop the water from overflowing but it doesn't. The guy even knew that the warm air leaking into the ice Maker section was problematic and he used clear silicon to seal the outer box edges and that didn't seem to do too much. He said once a month I should defrost the unit that way nothing gets stuck. Turns out it freezes up in a matter of days.
Now we are faced with the motorized buzzing sound. It stops when you open the door, but it's very annoying. All I keep reading about this problem suggests it's a design/engineering flaw that Samsung is not addressing, and it's not isolated to this model because more than likely they are using the same ice cube maker/dispenser in multiple models. The only real remedy is to replace every refrigerator that has this dispenser built in, because even the "upgraded" dispenser still freezes over, gets jammed, leaks, and makes grinding noises. Not what you'd expect in a top of the line $2500 appliance. Breaking down at 1 year old is insane, domestic-made refrigerators used to last 15-20 years with minimal maintenance.
There should be a class-action lawsuit against Samsung to rectify this problem and make consumers whole. This was what the consumer protection agency was supposed to do, but it seems that trump has pulled all the teeth out and it's protecting manufacturers not consumers.

Both TVs were purchased within the last 6-8 months. The Kitchen TV is Model Number UN40KU6290F The Family Room TV is Model UN65KS950DF Youre suggesting that if I try alternate Comcast box codes for Samsung it'll somehow cancel out the potential duplicity of the signal reception from these Samsung remotes? There's no way to "pair" one remote to one specific set? That might suggest that if you don't want conflicting Samsung remote signals I'd have been better off buying a Vizio or LG as the second set. BTW... I'm not trying to be sarcastic LOL. I'm just confused as to what to do, it's driving my wife crazy.

We have a Samsung smart tv in our kitchen, an another in the adjacent family room. They are separated by a wall and a short hallway so you can't see tv#1 when watching tv#2. If the tv in the kitchen is off, and the one in the family room is on, and someone turns on the kitchen tv... the family room tv powers down. Both TVs have wifi and are on the home network. Obviously it's something to do with the remotes. Is there a way that I can dictate that the kitchen tv remote signals are not picked up by the family room tv? Guess I'd have to "program" both remotes to only work line of sight? That's IR right? Not RF. Thanks in advance for the help.-Mike
