Thank you that helped a lot.

Look in the fresh food section behind the drawers and you will find your reservoir. Squeeze that a little and see if it is frozen.

If that is not the problem please do not click accept. Just let me know and we will most certainly move on to the next step.

Thank you,

You can use a hair dryer but keep it moving. Do not heat just one place. That way the plastic on the wall does not get over heated. The tubing will be fine, you cannot overheat that. Its the plastic walls (if your wall is plastic) that you have to watch.

I will be here 10 hours more so please if you have any question about anything please ask.
