correction it is model 561
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
the first thing you need to check is the water tube that feeds into the back of the ice maker. make sure its not frozen. how old is this unit?
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
the other thing is the water valve itself. do you have a volt meter and know how to use it?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I checked that, its not frozen. Unit is Feb 1999 manufacture date. Is the water valve on the bottom of fridge?
Expert:  Bryan replied 8 years ago.
this is a side by side dual compressors on top right? check up in the top and see if you see a water valve it should look like this .Part 753858
