I followed all the usual suggestions about changing the water filter and disconnecting the exterior copper line and testing it to make sure flow was steady. I then got ambitious and diconnected and tested the flow of water through each of the refrigerator's interior valves. Isolating my problem inside the dual valve that regulates feed into the water dispenser and icemaker I was able to clear out the blockage with a small dustbuster air cannister but reassmbling the valves somehow caused the valve to no longer function right so I ordered a replacement valve and had it all reconnected in five minutes once the part arrived. A simple repair to avoid a very costly replacement! Partselect has now been used by me to repair my oven, refrigerator (twice) and microwave. A pretty good alternative to replacing an appliance if you are willing to try your own repair.
