I am old timer appliance technician. In the old day, we use mechanical timer, it is easy to do a manual defrost.
Now a day - with electronic control module, it is hard to figure out how to do a manual defrost.
I am looking at Samsung RS2556SH, How can I do a manual defrost? Help

Howdy, Fastlane, welcome to Appliantology! Yeah, these are little different than the old mechanical timers. There's a keydance on the control panel that puts the unit into self diagnostic model. One of the things you can do there is put the unit into manual defrost mode. Rather than try to explain it all, it's a whole lot easier to just give you the link to the Fasttrack manual ==> http://dl.dropbox.co...-Fast-track.pdf

Defrost Heaters on Samsungs are known to go bad at the connections...
The Heater is "woven" into the Evaporator and is designed to be replaced as an assembly.
There's an easier way...
let us know if it's a bad Heater.

That is great PDF. Thanks. Another question; I know physically where the "Freezer Drain heater is located" but I couldn't find it on the photo or the schematic, can you point it out? Thanks.

You are correct - Loose connector. Someone from another company was there before me; he told the customer its not repairable; to buy a new refrigerator. (hehe)
