Which colored water valve did you remove the line from? Brown ,Green ,Yellow ,or Blue

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the valve is blue with diff color solenoids how ever the line I removed was at the end of the valve that did not have a solenoid at that end
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

yes the valve is blue but the solenoids are different colors .

if you removed the line from the far right one . as in this photo then that is coming from the filter assembly

And the lines to the filter could be frozen.

I would suggest to turn the unit off for several hours and with the fresh food section door open and then see if the water goes to the rest of the valve.

The green is fo the fresh food icemaker .

the yellow is for the chilled water dispenser. and the blue is for the freezer icemaker and the brown is the main primary valve ,the main primary and one of the others have to be energized each time water comes in to the refrigerator
