Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

Good evening, do you have a volt meter ? can you tell me is the ice maker cycling ? turning ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The ice maker is cycling but I had emptied it awhile back thinking that the line was frozen.


when we press the water on button to ask for water and were watching the back of the fridge we could see where it went to the filter and past and where it stops.


 


i can send you a photo and then you could tell me if there is a pump in there

i can send you a picture of where the water is going in but not going out.


 


I can't see this chiller, but it must be in behind the silicon plug.


 


how can i send you my photo

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
the chiller is inside the refrigerator section behind the crisper drawer, take a hair dryer and try warming up the chiller tube and try the water about every two to three minutes and see if it comes out
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

okay bryan we are just pulling out the crispers and deli drawer and are locating the chiller. we have found a water hose and will try to warm it.


 


the chiller must be covered in casing and we will uncover it for better access.

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay let me know if that works, A lot of the time these freeze.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
