Hi,

So you can't get any water out of the dispenser in the freezer door or the ice maker is not getting any water to it?

Yes water is coming out of front door but not dispensing into ice tray.  Jumped T and H.  It reset.  Now we reset v and L AND no water was dispensed.

Make sure the water line to the ice maker is not frozen shut.
You could also ohm out the water inlet valve with a multimeter to see if you have continuity.

how do I check to see if it is frozen?

I jumped t and H, N and M, V and L.  No water but the ice maker ran through the cycle has to be the water something.

To see if it's frozen you would remove the line and try to blow air through it.


If the line is clear then you probably need water inlet valve part # 2006766

We could not move fridge so we emptied it and turned it off.  Hopefully this will melt frozen pipe.  If not we are going to have to find a way to move it.  Do you think turning it off will melt a frozen line?

Yes, if it's frozen that should work.


Most often it's the ice maker in the door style that I see frozen lines on instead of one like your model.
If it still don't work after you thaw it out then you should replace the water inlet valve.
