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 RF217ACRS Reviews & Ratings

RF217ACRS 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 Stainless Steel is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poorly designed shelving While this appliance is extremely attractive and seems to perform well (I only just had it delivered today), I am extremely disappointed in the interior. The only place to store large beverages (like a gallon of milk or a jug of juice or a 2-liter bottle of soda) is in the two lowest door compartments. This is not immediately evident in the store as there appear to be sufficient adjustments, but in actuality each adjustment leaves the distance between the shelves just short of being able to accommodate a gallon milk jug. Like many households, we have many large beverages at the same time and I am not sure how we will work around this serious design flaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 years and done Had a problem with the door open alarm last year,was told it was missing a magnet? Same thing occurred again this year,to the point that I had to unplug the fridge to make it stop. Had to transfer all the food to our small spare fridge in the basement,got such a bad feeling after this incident I no longer trusted this thing to ever be properly repaired. Couldn`t take a chance that this thing would stop working while I was at work during the day so I purchased a different brand and had them remove this one. My old fridge worked for more than 15 years and the only thing that ever had to be replaced was a light bulb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent refrigerator So far so good with this refrigerator. The only negative comment I can make of it is that it's missing a built-in filter. That you have to purchase and install separately on your own outside this refrigerator. Other than that it is performing well and is beautiful in my kitchen. It was the only model I could find of the "French Door" type with bottom freezer that I could find from all the appliance brands that actually could fit through my apartment door without the doors installed. I checked many customer reviews and did my research and Samsung was the choice to make so I am very happy with this purchase so far. Lastly it has a fingerprint-free surface for low maintenance cleaning.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interior Design has BIG FLAW The designers of this model did not take into account the standard height of a soda bottle, milk jug, syrup bottle or anything tall for that matter. The only place you can store tall items is the bottom 2 door shelves (which will hold 1 gallon of milk and 2 soda bottles only) So if you have more than that, you're out of luck. If you could adjust the shelves better that would be great but they did not give you more shelf brackets to have more options. We ended up taking out the extra shelf so that we can store the tall items. Had I know this when purchasing, I would not have purchased. Very bummed out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish there was a shelf divider... I was about to buy a KitchenAid, which had this product beat - but the person who set up the refrig screwed up on the demo - set up the crispers wrong - so I bought this one... hey, Samsung! Wake up! The biggest complaint is the shelves - make them divided, so that the owner can get large / small groceries in it - and you have a WINNER! I bought this because I needed a smaller unit for my place - it does do the job - but a small engineering tweak would beat the competition HEADS DOWN! I also have other SAMSUNG products (TVs) that do that - so why can't the same thing happen in the kitchen?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this refrigerator I like the easy to use controls that are high and out of reach of little kids. There is a simple ice on/off button is nice for managing the ice maker. I really like the LED lights inside the frig, every time I see them I think really smart design. Compact / cool / and won't need replacing for a long time. I love the quiet operation, this appliance just does it's job and doesn't bother anyone with loud noise. And it's energy efficient, another plus ! The shelves don't have as many adjustment choices as most refrigerators have, but I'm used to it now, it works fine, and for it's size, it really holds a lot of food that is quickly accessible / viewable. Works well for us (and we're a family of 6).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great appliance We made this purchase after much research online. Also, it was highly recommended by my sister, who purchased it six months ago. First, it is a very attractive appliance. The French door design and stainless steel is very modern. The digital display of temp of refrig and freezer are easy to read and monitor. The design of the the interior is adjustable to customize for personal use. Both refrig and freezer are roomy. Second, the duel compressor is novel and energy efficient. Our electric bill has gone down significantly which is important with days increased electrical rates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more bending This refrigerator is close to perfect. We both love the fact that we don't have to bend over to see what and where things are anymore. It has tons of room and the temps being at the top and very easy to read and ease of change are wonderful, no more guessing how cold it is. The freezer drawer is perfect for us, tons of room. I was not sure I could afford to purchase this type of applicance but when my old refrigerator broke on Sunday, I did not have much choice. This model has the best choices and tons of room for the price, much less than the other brands. Thanks
