replaced internal tank and all of the tubing to the ice maker and the water dispenser. Also had to replace the dual outlet water valve. Repairs were elementary but took time because of the unfamiliarity with the job. The water shut down because of debris in the water which eventually was determined to be coming from the water storage internal tank. The tank had formed some biofilm down through the years which is unusal as the water to the refrigerator comes through a reverse osmosis unit which filters out anything larger than 5 microns. The biggest chore was rolling the refrigerator in and out to gain access to the rear panel.
