Product information

The RB31FERNBSS Samsung Fridge Freezer combines stylish design with the latest cooling technology to keep your food fresher for longer. Smart design features and functions make efficient use of space and provide flexible convenience.

With a total gross capacity of 304 litres, this frost-free fridge freezer will deliver more than enough room for your everyday needs. The brushed steel finish adds a contemporary look to your kitchen and is rated an impressive A+++ for energy efficiency.

Multi flow cooling, comes as standard on this model. Cool air outlets on each shelf level provide even cooling and help restore the fridge to its operating temperature more quickly after new items have been added. This multi flow cooling action ensures that food is kept fresher for longer.

The no frost technology prevents a built up of ice by using circulating cold air to pick up excess moisture, that would ordinarily form frost. Gladly, this means no more defrosting the freezer and no more separating food frozen together.

Other key benefits include :

  • Power Freeze - Rapidly lowering the temperature of the freezer once new items have been added to ensure food is kept fresh and stored safely.
  • Holiday Mode - Ensures the fridge operates in the most efficient way whilst you are away, yet keeps the freezer working normally.
  • External display for complete control of the fridge and freezer temperatures.

The Samsung RB31FERNBSS fridge freezer has 3 full open freezer boxes so that large items can be easily stored. The Fridge has three shelves as well as a temperature controlled CoolSelect Zone drawer, to store meat/fish or fruit and vegetables at the optimum temperature. A wine rack is also on hand to store away any bottles and an easy slide shelf provides access to items at the back of the fridge. A removable basket stores away sauces and condiments. These fridge features help you to reduce the time to store, organise and remove grocery items after a big weekly shop.

This model hosts a digital inverter compressor, which means that this fridge freezer is more energy efficient, saving on day-to-day running costs, whilst maintaining food at its freshest for longer. This technology comes complete with a 10-year warranty.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I wanted. Really love the look of this fridge freezer, perfect for my family. Larger fridge than the freezer but still a good size plenty of room for all my frozen food. Quiet and economical. A very good purchase. 22 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product Thought a bit pricey but couldn't see anything else we liked. It sticks out a bit more than we would have liked however it does like great in our new kitchen. Its very quiet and has more room than I thought it would in the freezer (our old freezer had 4 drawers where this only has 3) Delivery was great - as always had plenty of contact from drivers about delivery time. 22 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by I wish I knew! Very efficient delivery but the item was damaged/scratched. Not too much hassle getting a replacement although annoying and time consuming. We had a bespoke kitchen built to house this damaged item thinking that we could just replace the damaged one with the new one when it arrived. However, when the replacement arrived it didn’t fit in the space which housed the original! We will now be out of pocket to have the kitchen altered! I have no idea how this fridge freezer performs as we are still unable to plug it in and use it. 22 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Attractive fridge/freezer Good looking freezer. It doesn't have a visible thermostat but a warning does come on when the temperature drops. Capacious fridge and freezer capacity. Warning, changing the door to alternative opening very difficult (there was not an option for this on the John Lewis website when I bought this, ) we had to get some electricians in and it took two men an hour to effect the change, beyound the ability of an amateur. 25 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Very happy with this product although smaller than our previous fridge-freezer holds just as much 24 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Samsung RB31FERNBSS Nice elegant fridge freezer. Very quite, and although not owned very long all is going very well. Good size and no issues at all to date. Instruction manual was very scant in details although all was reasonably straight forward to use. Simple control on the front, to set temperature. Delivery was ten days which was inconvenient as I had moved into a new house and had a week with no fridge. 24 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Product well designed high quality product, keeps your food cold and it looks nice, quiet too 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effecient and stylish This fridge-freezer has lived up to all the reviews and research I read , its quiet offering plenty of room in fridge and freezer , 17 November 2015
