This product stopped working after 8 years. Keep in mind the average life expectancy of a refrigerator is 14-17 years, so this thing stopped working halfway through it's useful life. Sometimes the compressor works, sometimes it doesn't. There's a thread on the samsung support site citing similar issues experienced by other owners of these refrigerators. Seems all on that thread ended up buying a new fridge. The Samsung tech's who came to service our fridge recommended that we buy a new one. There's a reason they don't offer a longer warranty on these fridges. They know they break after a few years. Put your money elsewhere.
