Moved maytag refrigerator and have been unable to get water

Customer Question

Moved maytag refrigerator and have been unable to get water to the dispenser or icemaker. Thought the inlet solenoid valve was bad so we changed it out. Still have the same problem. Filter system is bypassed with factory bypass mechanism.

Does the auger motor run when pressing the paddle?

This is very odd as having no ice and no water at the same time point to a water issue. The valve is new and common to both, so that is not it. You will need and know how to use a voltmeter to continue on with this, so post back if you are so equipped. I will be around again tomorrow evening.
