Question about Refrigerators

Interior refrigerator lights (2 bulbs at top of cabinet)

The 'fridge was delivered and set up less than an hour ago. The delivery men set up the temperatures for both the refirgerator and the freezer cabinet (digital display). We were loading food into the refrigerator cabinet for about 15 minutes (door open alarm merrily chiming away) when the lights inside the interior of the refrigerator cabinet went out. We cannot seem to get them to come back on, despite looking through the operating manual for things that we might attempt that would make them re-light

Did you try tightening the light bulbs? Try changing them. Then, check the spring mechanisms in the side of the door - perhaps they are stuck shut (these are the clips or buttons that control the light). Maybe it is a problem with the alarm?

When you measure a refrigerator for height, do you measure from the floor to the top or do you measure from the base of the refrigerator to the top..I am limited bc of a cabinet

On space: Measure from floor to the cabinet at its lowest part, usually the front face frame of cabinet is lower than bottom of cabinet. Ideally you want a little space between fridge and cabinet. Knowing the height of space, measure refrigerators that are less than that measurement when you measure them from floor to top of fridge including hinge if it is higher than top.

We had an 18 qft top freezer delivered yesterday at noon. 19 hours later, it is not even cool to the touch, much less cold.The delivery guy from Lowes said it would only take about 3 hours.

Sounds like a lemon, RETURN IT! Lowe's has no service department, buy from Best Buy or ABT, buy the warranty because refrigerators are not like they used to be...!

How long do I wait to turn on after it was carried horizontally?

I assume you mean that it was laid down almost flat on the floor? If so, then yes you will need to wait more than four hours to let everything settle. Depending on when it was delivered to you, I normally suggest to people to let it set overnight. I would wait probably at least 8 hours or more if you can. Hope this helps!

    The interior lamp could have been defective as delivered. If you purchased your Samsung refrigerator new, this could be a repair under the warranty.

    I just purchased a 2-door 9 cu. ft. refrigerator, M:KTD_300MN and it will be delivered tomorrow. Upon delivery can I plug the unit right away and transfer items from our old refrigerator? If no, how long...

    That would depend on if the delivery people laid the unit down or not if the unit is delivered strait up the hole time then you would be able to plug it in about an hour after it is delivered. If they lay the unit down horizontally it is best to let the unit sit for 24 hours before plugging the unit in. If you have any further questions message me back. Please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks again

    Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Be aware removing the feet and or wheels will make moving it even empty likely to damage the floor. A better option might be to remove flooring if possible. A quarter inch is not much and maybe the cabinets could be trimmed?

    We just had new refrigerator delivered approx. 36 hours ago, it still hasn't made ice and it is only cooling or freezing a tiny bit and on the bottom only

    I recommend that you call the store and tell them to come and get this faulty refrigerator. generally it takes 24 hours or less for the first batch of ice cubes to appear. Also, by now both the fridge and freezer should be properly cooling.
