However, for this to work, the unit has to be a Samsung Smart Convertible refrigerator. It allows you to turn a freezer space into a fridge space if you run out of spaces to store fresh food. This way, you don’t have to get an extra appliance just to accommodate your refrigerator needs.

How to Convert a Samsung Fridge into a Freezer

To convert a Samsung fridge into a freezer, press the Temp keypad and hold it for about 3 seconds. The fridge section will convert into a freezer for long term storage purposes. The same applies to models that have the Freezer to Fridge keypad on the digital panel.

This conversion comes in handy if you have a lot of cooked food and little fresh food to store. You can use all the refrigerator space available to preserve food without having to get an extra freezer or using a neighbour’s appliance.

Quick Note

If you know how to convert a Samsung refrigerator but the convertible feature does not work, it is important to notify Samsung support center as soon as possible. They will know what went wrong and how to fix it. This is especially true if your warranty is still active.
