Samsung RB31FERNDBC Fridge Freezer, Gloss Black

Special offer

Product information

The RB31FERNDBC 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 usable capacity of 310 litres, this frost-free fridge freezer will deliver more than enough room for your everyday needs. The gloss black finish adds a contemporary look to your kitchen and is rated 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 RB31FERNDBC 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 salad drawer to store 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 4.7 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant fridge We brought this about a month ago now. It's a great fridge really useful storage space that has been thought out to maximise capacity. Can't fault it at all! Very happy! 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good product This is a very good fridge freezer. There is a lot of space in the fridge which is easily accessible with the pull out shelf and large salad drawer. The freezer is so efficient, I have never known food to freeze so quick as it does in this freezer and with a 10 year warranty I am so glad we bought it. 20 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new fridge freezer !! It's so quiet. Keeps food so fresh. And does everything it says on the box. On a personal note, the instructions for changing the door opening to other side, aparently, are not the best to flollow - hence a 'good' rating. This operation caused a wee 'ding' to appear in the door - hence a 'great' rating. I would have preferred a larger freezer, 50/50 split, but I love that this one has no water cooler and no handles. And the delivery men were brilliant. A fun 'Odd Couple' humour pair. Service flawless. A great start to a Monday morning :) 12 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It'! This was a reluctant purchase to replace my recently deceased fridge freezer. I did a lot of research, and decided this was the one for me. What really sweetened the deal was the additional guarantee from Samsung, extending it to 5 years (make sure you claim it via the link). The JL delivery & old fridge disposal was on time with no dramas. I had to leave the new fridge to stand for 2 hours before switching it on, but I really think it's worth doing, I'm sure it helps it run properly from the start. This fridge freezer is 60/40, so I was a bit worried about freezer space, but so far it's been fine. I really really love the fully openable draws - they run smoothly and the fronts are clear plastic and because no frost develops, you can see the contents. No more bottom-freezer-drawer jams any more (yay!). The fridge part seems enormous! Again, all the shelves and drawer fronts are clear plastic, so you can see everything at a glance. The LED light is bright and modern looking. The Samsung refrigerates and freezes as you would expect it to. I really don't understand why some reviewers think this unit is noisy - it isn't. It does make some noise sometimes, as all fridges do, but in no way is it distracting or intrusive. My kitchen is off of my living room, and the door is always open so if it was loud, I'd know about it. This is a nice looking fridge freezer. The black gloss is classy looking, but will show fingerprints. The sides are more matt black but I don't have a problem with that. The LED temperature indicators on the front look cool. So, all in all I would recommend this fridge freezer. It's modern inside and out, it's quiet and efficient and the 5 year warranty is an excellent bonus. If there's one negative point, it's that they don't offer an option to have actual handles on the doors, which I would have preferred rather than having to pull out the bottom of the door to open it. Otherwise, it's a good buy. 11 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Fridge Freezer This Fridge freezer is much quieter than any we have had before. The 2 blue lights on the front are quite bright and could be a "reflective/distraction" problem if the fridge freezer was to be installed in a multi use room. Ours is not and I do not think we could have found another product more perfect for our needs. 03 February 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by one word description - WOW! One of the best, I've owned! Fridge-compartment deceptively wide and deep, inside. Love the colour, black. Booking a delivery time and disposal of old machine, superb. Only two negatives are.. not used to a smaller freezer-compartment (used to 50:50 split), and the first two-days of the condenser 'smelling'. Otherwise, a great product. Rating should be 4.5 out of five !! NB: Apply for Samsung 5-year Warranty (comes with two-years, plus additional-online- three year parts and labour extension, expires 30jun2016). 26 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works well; quiet; looks great Exceptionally quiet. Accurate temperature. Frost free aspect works perfectly. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fridge I bought this fridge for my new house and it is worth any penny. I normally go for other famous German brands, but this time I wanted to do something different I am I happy with it. It works really well and it is quite silent. Ultimately it looks amazing in my dining room. 03 November 2015
