My piont is there are other choises, not necessarily Samsung, and some will operate on MSW.
I have not done any research on all manufacturers that may work, but I know for a fact there are choices, and it is not always necessary to convert to PWS inverters.
If memory serves me the Samsung website also states their RF197 and RF217 models are also compatible with MSW inverters.

My Kitchen Aid works just great on a Tripp Lite PV1250FC MSW. It's installed as a dedicated inverter for the residential refer and also runs a 17 cu ft chest freezer in the back of the pickup and a 3 1/2 cu ft basement freezer. We bring a LOT of fish down from Alaska.

We can also add GE residentials to the list that will operate on MSW inverters.

I ask this question of GE in 2011 and was told no. I suspected that they really didn't know so just said no out of an abundance of caution.

What is your source?

The owner of the Monaco next to me. Says he had it installed in 2009 when the Norcold died.

I think there's a huge difference between Samsung (and maybe Amana) where the manufacturer stated that the fridge would run on an MSW inverter and those brands where it's been "discovered by experiment" that they seem to work fine. The big difference is warranty coverage if there was a problem.

My Whirlpool 11cuft has worked with no problem on the Magnum msw inverter for two years and many thousand miles. Not always plugged in, reads 3amps on EMS when running.

Samsung answered my email about our MSW inverter on their 197 ACRS fridge. They answered with information similar to your post, added to the effect that as long as our inverter supplied electricity within their parameters there would be no problem. So we bought/installed one about year ago. No problem so far.

Certainly an inverter such as that works great with that kind of a load, but what you should have offered, was for how many batteries it takes to work great.

I believe we were discussing running a RR on a MSW inverter, never the less, six Lifeline GPL4CT 660AH total, AGM's. We boondock a LOT.

I suggest some research and there may be a change of opinion.
Your personal experience does not have to be a disagreement, respectfully or not. Your refrigerator may do fine on a MSW inverter but my coach came equipped with a PSW inverter upgraded to a 2800W with 6 AGM batteries. As I understand my Maytag, French door unit, the PSW inverter is the better choice for longevity. It might work on a MSW. I truly don't know. All I do know is that AC devices seem to be happier, like microwaves and motor type devices, last longer and work better.

The power on this coach is fantastic for a factory stock setup. I am very happy with the way all of my appliances work. They all work better than those I had in my old coaches with MSW inverters.

Happy trails and frozen ice cream.
