I could hear the pump activating....the sound of the pump, but no water coming to the ice maker.
Finally, a minor flood in the basement, below the fridge. Pressure in the water line from the pump up the back of the fridge to the area of the ice maker...let go, sending water all over the place.
I had tried emptying the contents of the fridge and the freezer to attempt to let the line thaw, in case that was the problem, but I hadn't waited long enough. It took 2 days to thaw the frozen water in the line to the ice maker..... but that was the problem.
Interesting! the fridge and frezzer have independent thermostats, but when I turned down the freezer thermostat...the fridge went warm as well . The dual outlet water valve I bought, I'll just keep.
