Samsung RB31FERNDBC Fridge Freezer, Gloss Black

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 27 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by spacious Fridge freezer Loads of space in fridge, great veg draw, sliding shelf. & more room in freezer than you think. love Samsung fridges, especially in black. It can be very quiet but then it can have moments where its very noisy 07 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Exactly what we wanted We had been looking at this fridge/freezer on line and thought the John Lewis price and free express delivery offer very competitive. Very satisfied with delivery and product 30 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Fridge Freezer I have only had this a couple of months now, but this is a great Fridge/freezer. It was so easy to set up - just plug it in after it had settled for a couple of hours - and it has been running perfectly since. The black design is great, no dirty figure prints show up on the doors and it is very easy to just wipe down then required. Also the space inside both the fridge and freezer is amazing, plus the layout makes perfect sense. 25 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Samsung RB31FERNDBC Fridge Freezer, Great Fridge Freezer, all I can say is buy one. It was delivered a bit later than told but worth the wait. 22 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product This is a great product, much quieter than our old one and, even though the specs say it's a little smaller, we seem to be able to get loads more in. Fits in perfectly with the gloss black cupboards in the recently refurbished kitchen too. 08 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not all good. Had this some 6 months now and found that it has an irritating whine on the motor that at night can be disturbing. It bangs that sounds like something occasionally shutting quickly and a fan that clangs against something when starting up. A bit disappointed. It works well and looks smart and I suppose that I will have to get used to its idiosyncrasies. 30 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning statement fridge freezer This is a very good fridge freezer and it is very good looking as well. The fridge is roomy and so easy to access with the pull out drawer and the low salad drawer. The freezer is fantastic because the drawers open fully without falling out, which happened all the time on my old model. I find the freezer adequate for my family of 4. i don't find it noisy at all. It is simple to clean the door of finger marks with a microfibre cloth, but if you use the handle to pull the door open, you don't need to get finger marks on it in the first place. It looks fantastic in my new cream kitchen and is excellent value for money. 23 June 2015
