Go to the back of the fridge and access the water valve. Remove the larger line off of it and place a cup under the valve. have someone hit the paddle momentarily and see if water comes out or not. This line is what feeds thru to the dispenser. Post back when you have done this and let me know the result.
You are not getting the right line. You need to get to the valve ON THE REFRIGERATOR.
That would also affect the ice dispensing and if so then the problem is with the door switch not being engaged or going bad.
The valve is right on the back of the fridge- you will see the plastic lines coming off of it. The door switch is not an issue.
This valve is electrical- you are not looking for a shut-off valve here.
yes. Do as I said earlier and remove the larger plastic line. To remove it push in and hold the small plastic piece that surrounds the line to the body of the valve and then pull it out.
Ok. Do you hear the click of a switch as you press the paddle?
At the valve take the wire off the coil for the dispenser side and remove the other wire for the icemaker valve. Put back the plastic line and remove the icemaker line. Hold the wire harness from the dispenser coil to the icemaker coil (it probably will not slip on as most have a different size terminal) .Put your cup under the valve, hit the paddle and see if water flows.
You are going to need a voltmeter now as there is no power getting to the valve, so there is an electrical issue here.
No, the valve is not getting power so I cannot say that it's the problem.
In the dispenser area. May be a bad switch or connection. This is true as long as the ice dispensess like you said it did.
yes. all the parts are above the paddles behind the facade.
It snaps off if you pry it at the bottom- there are 2 small slots to pry at.
I will have to continue this tomorrow as I am calling it a night, so I will reply accordingly.
