John Lewis give 2 year guarantee on white goods appliances

Where is the model or serial number on a fridge or freezer?

Serial numbers and model numbers for fridges and freezers always used to be on the back (as with many other appliances). My own fridge only has its serial number on the back. Fortunately most manufacturers have now had a eureka moment and realised they should be much more accessible.

A model and serial number on a modern freezer should be on a label inside the compartment. It’s sometimes at the bottom but it could be anywhere. Remove drawers from the bottom of the freezer one at a time until you find it.

On a fridge, the serial number is often on the inside wall side next to the salad drawer. Remove the salad drawer to find it. On a fridge-freezer the serial number may be in the freezer compartment.

They are usually silver but can be white, and are usually on the left side.

  1. thanks for the info, the samsung website offers no help in finding the serial number whatsoever, for those interested, I have a samsung rs21, the serial number is on the left outside at the bottom right hand corner

    thanks for the pointer

  2. Tnanks Phil. Have you seen the safety recall notice about the Samsung RS21? Samsung RS21 and RS60 range fridge freezers safety notice: Potential fire risk

  3. yes thanks got a letter and went online, thats when the games started “hunt the serial number” “hunt the model” etc I won in the end, already had issues with this rs21, new fan needed after 18 months, it was only throug a site like yours that I discovered it had a 24 month warranty, nice to get info for free like your site mate
