    how do you put this fridge into force defrost model RF263beaesg, i cannot find anything on it and my ice machine is all frosted up

  2. When using the force defrost do you need to empty fridge and freezer?
    Or will this only defrost the ice maker?

  3. Pressing neither fridge/flexzone or freezer/flexzone combo gets me to the correct panel for entering Fd. Is there another combo?

    I’ve used FD in numerous occasions. It doesn’t thaw the ice maker now. I’ve done it twice in a row but still frozen.
