Any Ideas??

There doesn,t appear to be any ice in the fill tube - where is the valve located ? Do I have to pull out the fridge to access it ?
Thanks, Verne
Yes the valve is located in the rear of the unit ,it does need to be pulled out to access the valve.

I can not seem to get to the valve - I have the fridge out and there is no way to get the back off to get to the valve, AM I missing something ?
Thanks,Verne(NNN) NNN-NNNN

I have found the valve - all seems to be ok with it - can you get me a schematic for the wiring ? Also how do I tell which solinoid is for the ice maker and which is the water dispenser ? the water lines don't seem to make sense !
