The Samsung 20 cu. ft. French door refrigerator will make a great addition to your kitchen. This refrigerator features easy access to internal controls, Power Freeze and Power Cool which drop temperatures 10 degrees very quickly so you can chill down your favorite beverages very quickly. Additionally, this refrigerator features twin cooling plus which keeps food fresher longer and an automatic ice maker which allows you to enjoy ice any time.


More ice with an automatic ice maker
Automatically makes as much ice in less space than conventional models.

ENERGY STAR® Compliant
You'll save money while conserving energy with our ENERGY STAR®-rated refrigerators. Plus, a handy alarm alerts you when the door is left ajar or open too long.

Easy access to internal temperature controls
The internal digital display gives you easy access to temperature controls and other information.

Drop temperatures with Power Freeze and Power Cool
The Power Freeze and Power Cool feature drops the temperature in each compartment by 10 degrees within minutes. Great for chilling down cases of soda or hardening up ice cream in a flash.

Surround Air Flow
Surround Air Flow ensures air circulates for even cooling throughout the refrigerator.

Twin Cooling keeps food fresher
Samsung's Twin Cooling System® controls and generates cooling air for the refrigerator and freezer separately. Airflow between the two stays separate so the freezer air stays drier, while the refrigerator's moisture level stays at 42%-almost 5x higher than single cooling systems resulting in fruits and veggies that stay fresher, longer.

Superior Ice Production and Storage
Your parties just got bigger. Samsung refrigerators produce large amounts of ice so you never run out. Our extra ice storage helps ensure you have ice on hand at all times.

LED Lighting
Samsung's best-in-class LED lighting gently brightens every corner of your refrigerator so you can see better. Plus, our LED lighting emits less heat and is more energy efficient than traditional lighting.

Attractive Design and Large Capacity
Samsung refrigerators bring innovation to both design and storage. Our beautiful and sleek design complements any kitchen decor. And, the enhanced storage capacity offers more space inside with the same outside dimensions as a traditional model. That's more room to hold your favorite drinks, party platters and leftovers.

Samsung Appliance RF217ACBP Reviews & Ratings

RF217ACBP 33" French Door Refrigerator with 20 cu. ft. Capacity, Automatic Filtered Ice Maker in the Freezer, Twin Cooling System, LED Lighting, Surround Air Flow and Door Alarm in Black is rated 3.92 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fridge & Freezer /w auto ice maker Very nice looking fridge and the interior is laid out very nice,especially where the freezer is located. Also extremely quiet fidge, the quietest I have ever had and it replaced a GE Profile and I love this fridge a lot more than the GE. The controls are all in digital and very accurate. After delivery, It takes 2 hrs. to cool down enough to start making ice and brings the fridge temp down to recommended temp at 38 degrees. This is the fast cool down cycle and it is a very nice feature. One very good looking fridge/w freezer and auto ice maker. It operated exactly as I had hoped. Can't beat it in my opinion. Would definitely recommend HIGHLY!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy customer i love this fridge. My old side by side died and I needed to research and buy a fridge fast. The french door refrigerator appealed to me because of the bigger freezer area and wider fridge area. The automatic icemaker works perfectly and the fridge is so quiet it makes me think its not on. The digital temperature settings are wonderful. I really like the freezer on the bottom and the ez open handle makes it a breeze. The things i am not happy about are minor. The shelves in the fridge don't accomodate a lot of tall items and the lighting is a little creepy. I had only 33 width to work with so this fridge worked out perfectly. I hope it lasts a long time because i love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Design I believe Samsung is a quality company but when it comes to the design of this particular refrigerator they dropped the ball completely. Only one of the glass shelves is adjustable... and it is limited to about one inch of movement. We cannot store anything taller than a mustard bottle on any of the shelves. Gallon or half-gallon containers will only fit in the door and that space is quite limited. The pull-out bottom freezer does not open far enough to get to the back of the ice bin. The ice maker is so loud it wakes both my with and me up at night. Overall I would never recommend this particular Samsung appliance to anybody... If I thought the store would take it back I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design and features I can't believe anyone would want or select any other design in a refrigerator - no bending down every time you want to grab something or to try and find items you can't see since they are now all at eye level, large spacious glass shelving (my last refrigerator had wire racks), beautiful LED lighting. The black color enhanced the look of my entire kitchen. I've read reviews where some people are unhappy with the inability to adjust shelf or compartment size, but there are comparable units (although a little higher price) with those options if that's what you want. The freezer space is huge and I like the two-drawer design so you can separate certain items (i.e., ice cream vs. frozen meat, etc). Digital display very easy to work with and operate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Be Gentle, I am fragile! If you want this refrigerator to last be gentle and we have been. The black paint on the door handles chip off and it's silver underneath. First covered with black marker then made black covers for the handles. The french doors open back too far and feel like they may not last long. The shelves don't adjust well for milk, juice etc. and they don't hold much weight. Should have a middle support in the back or better shelving material. So far mine still looks great and is running but the entire product is cheaply made. We don't like anyone touching the fragile thing in fear it may get broken or chipped. These days I guess it is an average cheaply made appliance that is only suppose to last about 7 years. I never used to buy extended warranties but I did this time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from water under drawers At 11 months water pooled under the produce drawers. The frig being under warranty, Samsung replaced a sensor and thawed out the drain tube. It worked ok for about five months and now the same thing is happening. I don't believe this is a part failure but a design flaw. The shelf spacing is another flaw, for it is impossible to set the shelves to accommodate gallon milk jugs or large soda bottles. I would not recommend this product because of the problems encountered using it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design is poor I absolutely hate the design of this refridgerator. I've owned it for 2+ years and have moaned and complained about the space restraints. Today after trying to cram my groceries into the space, I felt compelled to share. The trouble is you can't logically rearrange the shelving so that items such as juice containers, salad dressings, etc will fit on the top shelf. With the meat drawer on the second shelf it leaves very little space for those items. Oh, sure I could put juice on the door, but then where would I put my milk, my soda and other items that we drink. I have tried several times to rearrange items to a system that seems to make sense, to no avail. I am extremely dissasisfied with this purchase and would suggest anyone looking to by a new appliance to take grocery items with you to the store to see if they fit....ugh!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this refrig is fun! This makes food look good with the LED lights. And you can see all that you have. No more bending with freezer on bottom. sometimes the left door sticks open but great to have choice or open it wide with both doors. Only complaint is that handles show finger marks, the bottom shelf is only 9 1/2 inches high so can't put much there so a split shelf would be desirable and you need to adjust on- door shelving to hold those big beverage bottles we buy.
