Hello.I would look in the refrigerator compartment behind the meat and vegetable bins. There is a reservoir back there and it could be frozen up. If it is frozen, no water will come out of the line and you may have bigger problems than you are aware of. Locate that reservoir and check it out. Let me know what you find.JACUSTOMER-5gmoedbk- :I see that reservoir and there is some ice top left of it but how can I tell if it's frozen inside.?Robert :If there is ice on it then the line will be frozen.With the door to the refrigerator open, hold the door switch/button in and wait 1 full minute. Let me know if you hear the fan motor kick on in the refrigerator compartment. .JACUSTOMER-5gmoedbk- :Done that and no motor came on. Also stuck the hairdryer on the reservoir for a min and the water is working again. Whats the solution.Robert :If the fan motor is not running then you have one of two issues.1. The defrost drain is clogged and the ice build up is stopping the fan from turning.2. The fan stopped and air is not being pulled across the coils.The only way to test and see if it is number 1 is to empty the whole unit, open the doors and unplug it for 24+ hours to let it defrost (which will also clear the defrost drain). Once defrosted you close the doors and plug it back in. Wait 3 minutes(for proper computer startup) and then open the door and do the switch thing again and listen for the motor. If the motor does not come on, it will need to be replaced.JACUSTOMER-5gmoedbk- :Thanks for your help. I'll do that.Robert :No problem.
