How long you had it?
It's difficult to buy anything more than a perception of reliability because components & quality control can change by the day. Myabe best to look at favourable warranty options. Observation: Samsung apparently offer inclusive 5 yrs warranty for home appliances (50+ models of fridgefreezer) if registered within 90days of purchase. Warranty includes p&l+c/o and available for purchases between 1 August 2018 and 31July 2019 from all but the most dubious merchants. Seems reasonable. my-samsung.com/uk/…rs/

Just over 3 years, no problems at all. Energy efficiency is excellent, looks very smart and has a "holiday mode" I just press a button before we go away and it saves more energy. It also has a "ping" so it chimes when the door is open too long...so I can shout at the kids, to get out of the fridge. It also can fit 3 cases of beer with room to spare.

Half the price of a Samsung, I'd buy again. Lots of friends have commented on how good it looks.

Just make sure it has a metal back on it not plastic back.

Plastic back fridges/freezers are a fire risk. My mums house burnt down due to a fridge fire (non recall model). She’s lucky she got out.

Was thinking you was meaning fire related, I think most fridges / freezers are having these metal backs now.

About 50% of models do now yes, but there are still many that don’t. So make sure yours has one!
