Water filters are usually in the top at the back of the food compartment , it may be behind a box or panel. Check your owners manual. The Owner usually has to change these filters every 6 months or so.

39E is a bad ice maker as you know. Try to heat up the ice maker with a hair dryer in case ice has jammed the ice maker from rotating properly. If it still doesn't work, the entire ice maker would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. '

So error 40E means your ice maker fan isn't running properly and 24E means your freezer isn't defrosting properly. Both items are inside the freezer behind the back wall. You'll need to pull everything out of the freezer and remove the entire back wall inside the freezer. Thaw any ice or frost built up you see with a hairdryer. Re-install everything and then on the dispenser press and hold the upper right and upper left buttons to reset the error codes. If everything resets, then great. If it won't reset, then you need to replace your defrost temperature sensor clipped onto the top of the silver coils behind the back panel you removed, and you also need to replace the ice fan motor.

Unfortunately my experiences, plural, have all been negative when it comes to dealing with Samsung on the subject of their refrigerators. I own one myself and have been trying to deal with Samsung for almost three years with virtually no success. Their units are unnecessarily complex and I would definitely recommend NOT trying to dismantle your unit yourself. Samsung will use any excuse they can think of to blame your problem on YOU and for the most part will NOT support their retail customers. The internet contains complaints about Samsung that number over 25,000. 'Nuff said

Is ice maker in crushed ice mode as this will make grinding sound.

The alarm operates from the door switch which also turns light on. When refrigerator door is open for a set period the alarm sounds, fault is possibly either door switch or alarm panel. Can you operate door switch manually while door is open to see if light goes out? If light stays on then you have a faulty switch.

You have ice buildup in your coils in the freezer. There is ice in the defroster element and the circulating fan - the fan being unable to turn is what's causing the error code.
You'll need to unplug the unit, open all the doors and allow the frozen coils to thaw.
