How do I turn the child lock off on my Samsung refrigerator?

Child lock on Samsung refrigerators prevents accidental changes from taking place on the control panel, keeping your food and your family safe. If child lock is enabled you will be unable to use the control panel and some features such as the ice dispenser may not function.


The process of turning on and off child lock differs between models of refrigerator. For detailed instructions about your specific model check your instructions or download the e-manual

  • Press and hold the Child Lock button for three to five seconds. The Child Lock indicator will light up when it is active and the control panel will lock


  • Press and hold the Ice Off button for three to five seconds 


  • Press and hold the Vacation and the Fridge buttons for three seconds. The fridge button is often the same button that controls the temperature
