DOE-initiated testing has revealed that a Samsung refrigerator (model RF26VAB), which the company had claimed was Energy Star compliant, consumed more energy than permitted by the Energy Star program.  Test results for the Samsung model at issue show that, when tested in accordance with DOE’s test procedure, it consumed between 7 and 11.4 percent more energy than the Energy Star requirement.  Samsung is no longer manufacturing this model, although it may still be available from some retail outlets.  Based on this testing, DOE is referring Samsung Model RF26VAB to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for appropriate action with respect to the Energy Star program.
