Good Morning, We have a Samsung refrigerator that gives a very light shock from the door handles or case. The refrigerator is less than a year old. Any idea what could be going on? Thanks

Are you sure it was not a static electricity shock?

What kind of floor is in the kitchen?

Also

Is it plugged into a properly grounded 3 prong 120 volt outlet?
Or is this an older house with only 2 wire wiring (no ground)?

Does it happen all the time?

Is it like a static electricity spark (shock) or is it an electrical tickle?

This is on an all tile kitchen floor. And the feeling is more like an electrical tickle.

Does it only happen when the compressor and the fans are off?
