Samsung RB31FERNBSS Fridge Freezer, A+++ Energy Rating, 60cm Wide, Brushed Steel

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 5 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A fantastic product I bought it to replace my old Hotpoint fridge/freezer. It is perfect choice for me, fits into the place well, works very quietly and effectively, it's spacious and can put a lot of stuff into either fridge or freezer. I love it and would like to recommend it to anyone who is thinking about buying a new fridge/freezer. 14 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Meets all our expectations This fridge freezer was bought to replace a big American style model which was noisy and expensive to run as it never seemed to turn off for long. It is plenty big enough for our needs, is attractive, well designed for storage, efficient and quiet when running. The delivery men unpacked it and set it up before leaving the house. They removed the packaging with them so it was completely hassle free. Six weeks down the line we are very pleased with the purchase. 09 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality product Nothing to add about the product with which I'm delighted, as I expected to be. A note about delivery and disposal of old item: Because the fridge/freezer is delivered by an external company (Expert Logistics) John Lewis themselves cannot offer a disposal service. I asked JL about this and they told me to contact my local Council or charity group .. all very polite and customer-friendly but in the end not useful. Now the good news: Expert Logistics, when they called to agree a delivery time, offered to take the old fridge away at no cost. And they did. Hurrah. 06 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Good Fridge Freezer The Samsung RB31FERNBSS is efficient, well lit inside and practical. The "cool select" drawer is very useful! One major disadvantage: The bottle rack is too small for champagne bottles. Two minor points: The temperature LED outside doesn't display the value itself, only indicates the temperature level. In a badly lit room one can't read the temperature. The RB31 doesn't seem to be available in white. I would buy one again and can fully recommend it. 04 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fridge/freezer Very good applicance - lots of room inside, looks great and keeps food much better than our old fridge/freezer. The freezer is much better designed than other similar models from other manufacturers and the big freezer drawer can fit around twice as much in as other models' drawers. The temperature display only lights up when the door is open though - we had hoped for it to remain on all the time, so you can see at a glance what the temprature is, but it's a minor issue. I'm still confused on the guarantee we got though and sent an email to JL customer services to clarify this, but it was unanswered #even after 6 weeks!#. There is a box on the page saying 3 year guarantee, yet the text says 2 year guarantee?!? 17 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this fridge I bought this fridge based on the Which?.uk review I read. It is an amazing fridge. It is super energy efficient (weve cut down on our electricity usage by half by replacing the old fridge to this one), quite large and spacious(even after our weekly shop there is space left!), and has all necessary features without being too gimmicky. AND it is relative cheap for what it is. I also love the slick design. I cannot recommend it more. 02 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for storage & keeps things fresh Bought this after checking out the Which reviews. The fridge is quite tall so great for maximizing storage space in the kitchen. There are lots of compartments including one in the fridge that keeps meat & fish cooler than in the rest. The overall temperature consistency across the fridge is great - especially after having put up with a dying fridge for the last year or more! 30 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greate fridge Got one delivered yesterday. We selected it for an excellent A+++ Energy Rating and a low noise rate. We bought it after discovering it on this WEB-site long before it became available in the shop. Had to wait for a month after payment to get our fridge. The Power City delivery guys brought fridge to the kitchen, got a signature and nearly left without stripping the fridge from its packaging. Managed to get hold of one of them for a few moments. Together we took of the packaging. Need to say, that while taking the fridge off its plastic transport platform we managed to damage the kitchen floor. There seems to be no way for removing this plastic platform without a need to lift the fridge at a certain stage. Remember to let the professionals to remove the packaging and install the fridge into the position. Also the User Manual requires to level the fridge. The screw-legs of the new fridge could not be turned easily by a bare hand. So make sure the professionals will do it for you. Be careful with the divider glass shelf in the freezer compartment - the transport inserts were so tight, that my wife could not pull them or the shelf out. Even after I removed the plastic transport stripes the shelf was seating to tight. Had to apply some force, as it would not slide out without great resistance all the way. (I wonder how they managed to force the shelf in at the factory?) Perhaps it is one more job for the delivery professionals. Fridge came undamaged without any scratches or bumps to its exterior. Once the initial cooling is over the fridge is very quiet. Thanks to a clever design there is no usual greed on the back of the fridge. Instead it all squeezed into the bottom of the fridge together with the compressor. As a result it all relies onto the stream of the air, provided by a built-in fan. To provide a stream of fresh air and escape for the air warmed by the fridge please remember to leave the vents on the bottom back of the fridge un-blocked. I will give this fridge 9.9 out of 10. 05 May 2013
