Samsung SRS693NLS 696L Side by Side Refrigerator $1196 + Delivery @ The Good Guys eBay

890
PGGUYS20

Have been looking for a fridge for a while and came across this eBay deal.
Looks like TGG already had the best price on this fridge anyways at $1495, so the 20% Ebay code makes it even better.

This is a simple fridge. Not plumbed. No ice dispenser. No water dispenser.
The dimension is 912mm (width) x 1780mm (height) x 716mm (depth), Samsung recommends 50mm gap on all sides (including the back) and 100mm top.

Its a pretty big fridge at 696L, suitable for family of 4 - 5.

So if you are after a simple fridge, this seems like a good deal.

    Having a side by side of similar dimensions I really wished I splurged a bit more and purchased a French door style of similar proportions. These seem large but aren't in all reality esp by the time you add a few condiments, veggies and cans of coke /stubbies.

      A french door style being fridge on top with french doors and freezer below?

      • +1 vote

        Yeah, with 2 doors at the top.

    •  

      What's the difference between the side by side fridge and a French door fridge ?thanks

      • +1 vote

        I think a french door fridge is where top is fridge (with 2 doors) and bottom is freezer which is either a drawer or 2 doors as well.

      •  

        French door has fridge on top vs on the right with side by side.

        You'll notice the difference if you ever need to put anything wide in either section.

      •  

        We’ve had both a French door and side-by-side. We have the French door now and I have found it not as efficient in space use as the side-by-side for the freezer.

        Yes the French door is wider, but that was never a problem for us. The main issue is that the freezer is more like the old chest freezer - everything else is on top of the thing you want, even though it does have a drawer at the top.

        I am continually finding items I forgot I had underneath the frozen vegies, steaks or pies. Given a choice, it would be side-by side for me.

    •  

      I'm actually not a fan of the French door because I don't like how when you close one door the other door pops open momentarily. Am I crazy?

        I'm not saying you're crazy but I don't have this problem

        I don't like French door because I seem to invariably have to open both doors as one is not quite wide enough to get into fridge.

    •  

      Hi guys, how is the energy efficiency with double doors compared to single? Thanks

    • +1 vote

      This. Had a side by side, now have a French door, French door is way better. Also if shopping for a fridge don't take the wife as you'll end up spending double what you planned.

  •  

    We have the split door version of this (two fridge doors, top and bottom, not French). Paid $200 more, so this price is great. Black metal looks fantastic.
    The internal layout very basic. Our old fridge had more compartments and places to put stuff, so in practicality the new one doesn't store more than the 600L it replaces.

    50mm gap on all sides

    Not sure about that. From what I recall, only at the back and on top.

  •  

    You can get $100 real cash back for this fridge

        I'm thinking if you have the store invoice you'd probably have a good shot at getting it

    I have this. It’s so loud

    • +1 vote

      Yeah I have a similar Samsung fridge that makes a high pitched sound all the time. I read online it's to do with the inverter frequency being in audible range.

      •  

        Did you find any workaround and apart from making any noise, is the fridge functioning properly? I have a similar kind and have issue with the freeze compartment. It doesn't cool. While the freezer compartment works well.

        •  

          I've only had it a few months and other than the noise it works great. You can turn off the freezer and fridge compartments independently on my model, is it the same on yours?

          •  

            @Ryballs: Mine have separate compartment and temperature control. But common power off

    •  

      Mine is a similar model, and completely silent. Is yours level?

    •  

      Internally this looks the same as our Samsung we bought about 5 yeras ago so I suspect its an updated version of the same model. Ours has been great and isn't noisy.

      Very good price, paid the same for ours and had to work hard on appliances online to get them to price match to this price. They didn't want to but we were buying a number of things off them at the same time so eventually caved.

  •  

    Holy crap I just bought this 3 days ago for $1347 delivered :(:(

    •  

      $151 isn't a big deal. If it was $500 fair enough

      •  

        $500 isn't a big deal either. Maybe if it was $1000.

    •  

      hope u bought it with a price protection eligible credit card

  •  

    Awesome, just what I need, to replace my existing Samsung, I'm actually not a fan of Samsung products but the price is right.

    •  

      I am a fan of their after sales service. We had an issue with ours (ventilation fan getting frozen up) and it was a year out of warranty.

      They still fixed it for $0. Happy with that.

    No water dispenser tho, would of been great if it had

      Depends if you want it. We have no use for it, nor the plumbing connection. Last thing we need is another item in the house that needs plumbing maintenance :)

    This looks just like my Samsung fridge that I have had for 15 years and still going strong

    I'm comparing this Samsung model to a LG fridge. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/113804362549
    Any comments?

      I owned a samsung sbs fridge and it gave me a lot of problems lasting only 7 years with a lot of fixes along the way. No more samsung fridge for me. Switched to this LG last year and so far it's great. Quiet and spacious interior despite being about the same size as my previous samsung.

    On our second (due warranty) Samsung SRF… french door fridge. This one has lasted longer than the first and Samsung did give us a replacement so I can't overly complain. It did have a design issue due to the thermostat placement causing freezing of which there is a kit to relocate the thermostat and fix the problem. Also there is a heated probe that is designed to stop the drain clogging but it isn't long enough, again there is a replacement part for it.
    If I was buying now I'm not sure I would just accept that fridges don't last and buy a cheap Hisense with a 3 year warranty.

    •  

      i had the same problem here, would never consider the samsung brand again. our died after 5 years during the xmas break weren't able to book a repair or buy parts for weeks. ended up buying a Westinghouse.

  •  

    Hi, I have corresponding model from 3-4 years ago. Nearly identical. Paid just over 1k delivered.
    It appears like a large capacity unit, but it's not that convenient and not that big in practice.

    I guess fridge part is not that bad, but freezer section is hopeless - too narrow and too small. I reckon it's our first and last side by side.
    My biggest gripe is with the noise though - when compressor starts it's very noisy for 3-4 seconds. Sounds like dog growling :)
    After that - very quiet.

    Planning to upgrade to Mitsubishi fridge when it's on special.

    I'm in the market for either a side-by-side or French door fridge.

    Just measured up the space in my kitchen - 948w 1783h 605d. Looks like this one is too tall for me due to the 100mm gap needed, so I took a look at other fridges. My issue seems to be depth. At only 605mm, there doesn't seem to be anything near this number. Is it 'normal' for fridges to stick out a bit? I was hoping it could sit near-flush.

    •  

      Yep - ours sticks out a bit because the doors go slightly wider than the cavity when they open.

      Also - make sure you have measured architrave to architrave. My wife measured wall to wall - forgetting that there was 25mm lost at floor level. We scraped in with 5mm to spare.

  •  

    I was looking at buying this too. Our gap is only 600mm deep too. Also interested in whether they look better ‘flush’

    I can't recommend strongly enough that people stay away from Samsung fridges. Hisense even moreso. We had two, the first one needed a new board on three separate occasion, and when it needed a 4th, I took it to the tip. Then we were actually given a second one (both were large brushed steel double door with ice/water) and that had a problem with the flap that lets cool air into freezer, and it had to be wedged open, then the defrost sensor went and a month after that was replaced the freezer stopped cooling, and a week later the fridge side did the same.
    When we called an electrician, the first thing he said was "if it's a Samsung, I'm not coming out to look at it". We then rang a commercial refrigeration repairer, and he told us the same thing…..NEVER AGAIN!, that's all I can say. The second man told us to stick with Westinghouse, Kelvinator, F&P or even LG, which he said used to be almost as bad but are now okay, and did mention that the first two, which used to have parts made in Oz and were easy to get parts for, are now fully made from Chinese parts.

    This is very low quality product. See product review.Refer to the model with cooler which is much more common.This is the same model but without one. https://www.productreview.com.au/listings/samsung-srs673dmb

    Never buy Korean for Fridges, they won't last 20 years plus.

    As a previous Samsung fridge owner, I'd never buy a Samsung again.
