Product information

The new and improved RL56GEGIH Samsung G-Series 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. Based on customer feedback, several changes have been made to the new model to reduce the noise level of this fridge freezer. 

With a total usable capacity of 357 litres, this frost-free fridge freezer will deliver more than enough room for your everyday needs. The inox steel 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.

The Samsung RL56GEGIH fridge freezer has 3 full open freezer boxes so that large items can be easily stored. The Fridge has four 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. There are four adjustable guards on the door to help you organise items easily and conveniently. They are individually adjustable to store all kinds of size. 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 Smart Eco System which maximises energy efficiency by applying sensor technologies and adjusting compressor operation tailored to your usage behaviour. Saving you money on day-to-day running costs, whilst maintaining food at its freshest for longer. A sophisticated blue LED display on the exterior tops off this model and provides instant feedback on temperature and operation.

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.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Roomy Fridge Freezer We are really pleased with this. Looked at a lot of others before buying and decided on this one as it has a slightly bigger freezer than other models. Fridge also has plenty of room and isn't noisy. Would recommend. 10 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic value for money I really liked the look of this fridge freezer and the size was perfect, but I was a little unsure about buying it at first, based on the one poor review it had received from 2013, however, after seeing the response and realising the model had been updated I took the chance. The fridge freezer is fantastic, really stylish, loads of space and far quieter than my old model. I love it! 22 September 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Noisy!!! Bought this a few months ago and looks great and is great for space BUT within a month it started making a loud whirring noise, what you woudl expect from a fridge freezer but a LOT LOT louder! Called Samsung out and they stated its normal (although the enginner couldn't really be bothered to expalin why, not good#. He did check the back and found icebuild up #one month after new!!!). Still making same noise. We are consideirng changing it but it appears all new fridges make this good when someone finds a way for them not to make so much noise! 03 October 2013
