Samsung has announced it will discontinue the original 1201 refrigerator in the US, the company said on Thursday.
The refrigerator was introduced in the late 1960s as a replacement for the original refrigerator that was discontinued in the early 1980s.
Samsung said the 1201 was the last of its kind, but said it was too costly and unreliable for the modern consumer.
Samsung has already sold a number of its original 1202s, including one in 2018 that had a 2,000-pound weight limit.
But the company will no longer offer them in the United States, and instead sell them in Europe and China.
The 1201 refrigerators had two main components: a refrigerant chamber and a compressor.
The compressor was used to compress the refrigerant.
The chamber was used for the food that came out of the fridge and was also used to keep the water out.
Samsung had hoped to sell the 1202 refrigerator as a consumer product, but it ended up selling a limited number of the units to retail stores, restaurants and home improvement stores.
Samsung was forced to stop making the 1203s because of the problems with the refrigerants, but there was no official shutdown of the 1205s.
Samsung did not specify the price of the new 1201s, but the company says they are about half the price as the 1204s and 1206s.
The company also said they will be less expensive than the original fridge, but that they may have higher maintenance costs.
The 1201 fridge is still available on Amazon for $199.99, and Amazon is selling it for $279.99.
