Samsung Res. Frig. Lock Knob

Can anyone comment on something my wife discovered looking at the new Montana's at the 4-H Fairgrounds? The Samsung residential refrigerators have a knob that keeps the doors and drawer from opening during travel. We went back to look at our refrigerator and noticed there is a welded nut where the two french doors and single drawer all meet on the inside. Did you get a knob with yours? Thanks.

Got the knob in ours. It really does keep all the doors closed. It takes a few seconds to install. Cheap insurance to keep your doors from getting dented and food from falling out of refrig. Get back with your dealer to get one.

We got the knob with ours. Recently I added a large metal washer with a large thin rubber washer because the knob let the doors come open a time or two. I had seen this fix in previous post here. I found both washers in the specialty fastener bins at Lowe’s. I was hoping to find a large plastic or neoprene washer but could not find one. The rubber washer fits against the fridge door (no scratches) but it was not rigid enough so the metal washer backs it up - and I don’t have to tighten it much - just snug the rubber to the door.

Picked up a 2020 3561 last week and found two large and two small nobs. I think they didn't find them when they did their walk through and put two in.

Great ides of putting a large washer and pad on it because it is close to letting them open.

I had to ask the forum what the small nob was for, too block open all the doors in storage so they don't close and air gets in them.

We have one for our 20118 3791RD. I painted it bright yellow, and put a string on it to hang on a hook next to the refrigerator so it will not be forgotten to be installed.

We use an old cd and some stick on felt pads on ours against the knob. You just need enough pressure to keep the doors from starting to open. JT
