Setting up your French Door Refrigerator


Congratulations on your purchase of the Samsung refrigerator. We hope you enjoy the state-of-art features and efficiencies that this new appliance offers.

Selecting the best location for the refrigerator


  • A location with easy access to a water supply.
  • A location without direct exposure to sunlight.
  • A location with level (or nearly level) flooring.
  • A location with enough space for the refrigerator doors to open easily.
  • A location that allows sufficient space to the right, left, back, and top for air circulation.
  • A location that allows you to move the refrigerator easily if it needs maintenance or service.
  • Do not install the refrigerator in locations where the temperature is over 110 °F (43 °C) or below 50 °F (10 °C ).

If the refrigerator does not have enough space, it can cause the bad influence to refrigeration efficiency and power consumption. If your refrigerator has an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line connections. When you install the refrigerator next to a fixed wall, you need a minimum clearance of 3 ¾” (95 mm) between the refrigerator and wall to allow the door to swing open.

Important: Make sure that you can easily move your refrigerator to its final location by measuring doorways (both width and height), thresholds, ceilings, stairways, etc. The following chart details the exact height and depth of this Samsung French Door Refrigerator

Model RF28JB**
Depth “A” 34” (864 mm)
Width “B” 35 6/8” (908 mm)
Height “C” 68 7/8” (1749 mm)
Overall Height “D” 70” (1777 mm)
Depth “E” 36 1/2” (926 mm)

When moving your refrigerator

To prevent floor damage, be sure the front adjusting legs are in the up position (above the floor). Refer to ‘Adjusting the Level’ on page 14.


For proper installation, you must place this refrigerator on a level, hard surface that is the same height as the rest of the floor. This surface should be strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator. To protect the finish of the flooring, cut a large section of the cardboard carton and place it under the refrigerator where you are working. When moving a refrigerator, you need to pull and push it straight forwards or back. Do not wiggle it from side to side.


For some installations, you need to remove the fridge doors and freezer drawer so you can move the refrigerator to its final location. Do not remove the doors/drawers if you don’t need to. If you do not need to remove the refrigerator doors or drawers, go to ‘Adjusting the Level’ on page 14. If you need to remove the doors and drawers. continue below. Before removing the doors or drawers, make sure you read the following warnings:

A water dispenser with a filter is one of the helpful features on your new refrigerator. To help promote better health, the water filter removes unwanted particles from your water. However, it does not sterilize the water or destroy microorganisms. You may need to purchase a water purifying system to do that.

The water line also connects to the ice maker. For the ice maker to operate properly, water pressure of 20-125 psi (138 ~ 862 kPa) is required. If the refrigerator is installed in an area with low water pressure (below 20 psi), you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure. After you have connected the water line, make sure the water storage tank inside the refrigerator is properly filled. To do this, press the water dispenser lever until the water runs from the water outlet.

Connecting to the water supply line

1. First, shut off the main water supply

2. Locate the nearest cold water drinking line and install the pipe clamp and shut off valve.

3. Connect the water line installation kit to the shut off valve.

Connecting the water supply line to the refrigerator

There are several items that you need to purchase to complete this connection. You may find these items sold as a kit at your local hardware store.

1. Connect the household water line to the assembled compression fitting.

If you are using copper tubing, slip the compression nut ( A ) (not supplied) and ferrule (not supplied) on the copper tubing (not supplied) as shown. If you are using plastic tubing ( B ) , insert the molded end (Bulb) of the plastic tubing ( B ) into the compression fitting.

2. Tighten the compression nut ( B ) onto the compression fitting. Do not over-tighten the compression nut ( B)

3. Turn the water on and check for any leakage. If you fi nd water drops or leakage in the connection areas, turn off the main water supply. Check the connections and, if necessary, tighten.

4. Flush 1 gallon of water through the filter before drinking or using the water from the refrigerator. (Flush approximately 6 minutes.) To flush, press a large glass or cup against the water dispenser lever. Fill the glass, empty it into the kitchen sink after it is filled, and then repeat.

5. After you turn on the refrigerator, let the ice maker make ice for 1 to 2 days. Over that period of time, throw out the first 1 or 2 buckets of ice the freezer makes to ensure all impurities have been removed from the water line.


Now that you have your new refrigerator installed in place, you are ready to set up and enjoy the features and functions of the appliance. By completing the following steps, your refrigerator should be fully operational.

1. Make sure your refrigerator is in an appropriate location with reasonable clearance between it and the wall. Refer to installation instructions in this manual.

2. Once the refrigerator is plugged in, make sure the interior light comes on when you open the doors.

3. Set the Temperature control to the coldest temperature and wait for an hour. The freezer will get slightly chilled and the motor will run smoothly. Reset the refrigerator and freezer to the temperatures you want.

4. After you plug the refrigerator in, it will take a few hours to reach the appropriate temperature. You can store food and drinks in the refrigerator after the temperature is sufficiently cool.

Ice Making

To fill the ice bucket to maximum capacity after installation, follow these steps:

1. Allow your refrigerator to operate and cool down for 24 hours (or 1 full day). - Waiting 24 hours will allow your ice maker to cool properly.

2. Dispense 4 to 6 ice cubes into the glass.

3. After 8, and then 16 hours, dispense a full glass of ice.

If There is a Power Failure

If a power failure occurs, ice cubes may melt then freeze together when the power comes back on, causing the dispenser to be out of order. To prevent this problem, after a power failure, pull out the ice bucket and discard the residual ice or water. After you dump the ice from the ice bucket, you should press the dispenser lever once with the ‘Water’ or ‘Ice Type’ function ON. The ice maker will make new ice faster after you return the ice bucket to the refrigerator


When you select the Ice Off mode, remove all ice cubes from the bucket. If you leave the ice cubes in the bucket, the ice cubes may clump together, making it difficult to remove them. To remove the ice bucket safely and avoid injury, hold the bottom of the bucket with one hand and the side of the bucket with the other. Then, lift up on the ice bucket, and pull it straight out. To put the ice bucket back in, push it firmly straight back.

If the bucket does not fit, turn the helix 90 degree (see the last illustration on the right, below) and try again.
