Every household appliance begins to show signs that its useful life is coming to an end. In the case of refrigerators is no exception, since they are designed to have a lifetime of 10 to 15 years, however, Samsung offers in each of its digital inverter refrigerators a lifetime of 21 years of equipment and 20 years in its compressor.

When the equipment begins to deteriorate, you probably think that the easiest thing to do is to call a technician to repair it. However, this may not be enough.

Despite the variety of appliances found in the kitchen, the refrigerator plays a fundamental role. This appliance plays an essential role as it stores the food and beverages consumed on a daily basis. Therefore, its good condition is of vital importance. If you detect any type of defect, especially in those models of other brands that usually have a useful life of approximately 10 years, it is advisable to consider the acquisition of a new refrigerator.

Samsung's Bespoke refrigerators are designed to not only perfectly preserve your food in ample space, but also feature a 20-year compressor warranty, so when you buy one, you know you're making a safe, long-term investment.

There are a few signs that it's time to replace your refrigerator. If you notice any of these listed below, you may want to consider buying a new model.


  1. Temperature is uneven: One of the clearest signs that your refrigerator is on the fritz is that it's colder outside than inside. If you notice that your food is freezing, or that the temperature inside is too high, it's time to replace it.
  2. Frost: Frost is a sign that the refrigerator is not working properly. If you see frost forming on the walls of the freezer, it's time to clean it. If the frost is too thick, you may have to think about buying a new one, although it is important that before making this decision you consult with support and a specialized technician who will indicate if the equipment has reached its end.
  3. It is very noisy: A refrigerator that makes a lot of noise is a clear warning that something is wrong. It may be a sign that the compressor or fan is worn out. If you notice it is making a loud noise, it is advisable to have it checked by a technician.
  4. Nothing fits: If your appliance is no longer big enough to hold all your food, it's time to replace it. The new Samsung models offer a wide variety of sizes and capacities, so you can find the one that best suits your needs, in addition to having the Space Max technology, which offers greater storage capacity without compromising the external dimensions of the refrigerator. In other words, you will be able to buy in large quantities saving you some trips to the supermarket and, in addition, preserve your fresh food, to avoid waste.
  5. It is more than 10 years old: The average lifespan of a refrigerator is 10 years for other brands. If yours has already passed the decade, it is possible that it is no longer energy efficient. Samsung's new models with Digital Inverter motor tend to generate greater energy efficiency, which translates into less electricity consumption without affecting the proper preservation of food.

Commitment to quality and durability

Samsung offers a wide range of refrigerators to meet the needs of all consumers. The new models have the latest technologies and features, including equipment that prevents the formation of frost, facilitating cleaning.

Samsung refrigerators' smart temperature control uses sensors to monitor the temperature inside the appliance and automatically adjust it as needed. This helps keep food fresh and safe, even when doors are opened and closed frequently, as the control unit uses this information to determine if the temperature is appropriate.

Plus, if you're a lover of good taste, Samsung refrigerators are known for their sleek, modern design. Models in the Bespoke line are available in a variety of colors and finishes that allow you to customize them to match your style.

Opting for a Samsung refrigerator also means saving money on your electric bill, as they are more energy efficient than older models and feature a Digital Inverter compressor that offers a 20-year warranty.
