Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. If there is not ice on the water lines more than likely our issue is with the water inlet valve and will need to be replaced.

Ok. Is it in the back panel at the refrigerator level. How do I check for ice on the lines. It would seem the ice maker would have the same problem.

is the ice maker still working?

Thanks for now. Need to get into it. I'll check closer on door dispenser switch. How do you remove water dispenser housing?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
On front refrigerator door...
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 8 months ago.

you can use a putty or butter knife to gently pry it off. There should not be any screws attached.

That is what I thought, just want a more experienced person to advise. Good night.
