Question

Watching TV on the Fridge's LCD?

I saw on a youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAhiHY5KtXk) - at the release of this fridge at CES - displaying the capability of watching TV (as long as you have a smart Samsung TV, is this possible? If so how? If not, why was this feature removed?

Thanks for your question. It isn't unusual for products or features to change between the time the concept is introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show and when it's actually available to purchase, and there are a number of factors that come into play that influence those changes.

At this point in time the apps that come pre-installed on the RF4289 are the only ones that are available, and are ideally suited for the kitchen: manage the contents of your refrigerator with the Grocery Manager app; search for recipes on Epicurious or view photos from a memory card or your online Picasa photo album; check the day's weather through WeatherBug, the latest news headlines on AP News, or your family's schedule from Google Calendar; follow your favorites on Twitter or listen to them on Pandora Radio; and leave notes and reminders for yourself or your family with the Memo feature. I can't tell you whether the selection will be expanded in the future, but if it is, instructions for adding them will be made available.

We do appreciate your interest and I'll be sure to share your comments with the appropriate team.

Question

Send data from Samsung RF4289HARS to Samsung smart phone?

Can you download/send the memos and/or shopping lists from the LCD screen on the refrigerator to a samsung smart phone? I read on another site that Samsung only allows data 'in' but not 'out' of the LCD screen/apps (but can not confirm this). It would make sense that the refrigerator should be able to send things to my smart phone thru the wi-fi connection, but I have not seen anything specific indicating that it can or can not. Thank you for any information!

How often and what are some examples of what the updates would do? Temp display issues? Ice/water display issues?

Software updates are likely to involve changes to or expansion of the Apps menu and possible integration of the Smart Grid energy management technology when it becomes available, though it's possible there could be changes to other functions, as well. I can't tell you how often these updates might occur, but when they do an icon appears on the main screen to make you aware of it.

Thanks for the question!

Question

are you able to purchase just the LCD to upgrade last years model to LCD?

As you can tell I purchased the RF4287 last year and would really like to be able to add the new functionality. Are you able to purchase the LCD control and would you be able to connect to the older fridge?

Thank you for the question. Unfortunately, the parts used for the RF4289 are not interchangeable with the RF4287, despite the similarities in appearance.

The RF4289HARS is not currently available in a 33" wide version with the LCD screen and WiFi. The 33" RF4267HARS does have many of the same features as the RF4289HARS, including the Flex Zone Drawer, flexible shelving, LED lighting and a premium LED control panel, but no LCD, WiFi or Apps.

Thanks for the question. The Energy Saver feature disables the low-wattage heater between the doors on Samsung's French Door refrigerators which helps to conserve a small amount of energy. If there is enough moisture in the air in your kitchen to cause condensation to form between the doors of the fridge, then I would suggest turning the Energy Saver feature off. The best way to conserve energy is to keep the fridge and freezer closed as much as possible, avoid using the Power Freeze and Power Cool options if they aren't necessary, and keep the fridge and freezer set at or close to the recommended 38ºF and -2ºF, respectively, for this model.

There are three different font sizes that can be selected prior to typing the letters. To choose the size, press the "T" at the top right of the screen to indicate you're using the keyboard rather than the stylus option to write, then choose one of the three circles to the right of the memo pad indicating small, medium or large size font. Once you've typed in a particular size it can't be changed but you can erase and start over or use a different size for the next item you type.

Thanks for the question,

Question

how do you turn the ice back on

The instructions for turning the ice maker on and off are on page 63 of the operating manual. The instructions are confusing because they use a double negative for the control.

You turn the ice maker on by using the settings on the display. On the first page of the settings screen the 5th item says "ICE MAKING OFF" and to the right you will see a button that says on/off. Press the OFF side - this will turn the ice maker on. If the ON button is highlighted in yellow, that means the ice maker is off and it won't make ice.

I hope this helps.

Great question! Compared to the RF4287, the RF4289 features an 8" LCD Digital Display with built-in WiFi. The Apps that come pre-loaded are ideally suited for the kitchen: search for recipes on Epicurious or view photos from a memory card or your online Picasa photo album; check the day's weather through WeatherBug, the latest news headlines on AP News, or your family's schedule from Google Calendar; follow your favorites on Twitter or listen to them on Pandora Radio; and leave notes and reminders for yourself or your family with the Memo feature. Of course, the RF4289 also includes the same great features that have made the RF4287 so popular - the independently-controlled middle Flex Zone Drawer as well as Samsung's signature Twin Cooling Plus system, LED lighting, slim design space saving water filter and in-door water and cubed or crushed ice.

Thank you for your interest!

Question

Can you get more Apps for the Fridge, if so where?

Can you get more apps for the Fridge if so from where? And you can download them directly with the built in wi fi or do you need to download them to a flash drive and then upload them with the flash drive to the fridge?

It comes pre-loaded with the available apps. As Samsung makes more apps available they can be downloaded through your wireless network. You can load pictures from an SD card or your Picasa album though.

At this point in time the only available apps for the RF4289 are those that come pre-loaded: Memo, Epicurious Recipes, Picasa Photos, WeatherBug, Calendar, AP News, Pandora and Twitter. However, it is possible that more could be made available in the future, at which time it will be determined which of the available tools (WiFi, SD card, etc.) would be used to access them.
