This response does not answer my question. The ice maker on this fridge jams up with ice once a month. I cannot unplug the fridge for 24 hours once a month just to keep the ice maker working.

 

How do I force the ice maker to defrost. Other Samsung fridges have this cycle. How do I activate it on this model?

You can only reset the ice maker. To defrost it, the entire unit would have to be defrosted.

I am having the exact same problem. Do you have any idea why the ice maker freezes up? It would be a hassle to have to shut the whole thing down every week. That is how often ours is freezing up. Since the ice maker sits in the refrigerator, would adjusting the temp help? Ours is currently set at 35 degrees farenheit.

To Force Defrost the refrigerator, follow the following steps:

 

1. Press the Control Lock and Freezer buttons at the same time for at least 6 seconds. The Control Display will blink with an interval of 0.5 seconds.
In that case, you may take your fingers off both buttons and press the Control Lock button to enter the Test Mode.
2. In this mode, you may press any button on the Panel to start the test.
3. When you press the button, the mode shifts in the following order for the test: Forced Operation → Forced Defrosting→ Cancellation (normal operation) → Forced Operation
4. If you want to cancel the Test mode in the middle, please turn OFF the power and turn it ON again.

 

3-1) If you press the Lock key again while the Forced Operation (FF A) is running, Fd is displayed on the Display, the Forced Operation is cancelled immediately and the Forced defrosting (Fd) operation runs.
3-2) If Forced Freezer compartment defrosting or Fridge Compartment defrosting (Fan Defrost) (Fd) begins, a beeping sound will be heard for 2 seconds and then the sound will be turned on for 0.5 seconds and then off for 0.5 seconds repeatedly while the Forced defrosting function runs.

4-1) When the refrigerator is performing the defrosting operation of both the freezer and the fridge compartments through the Forced Operation, if you switch the Display Panel to Test Mode and press the Lock key again, the defrosting operation of the freezer and the fridge compartments is released and the refrigerator returns to normal
