No instruction or explanation on how water flows from source to freezer door spout. . It flows from original source through tubing to filter (inside) back out, then down tubing to selinoid, which is controlled by a micro switch in freezer door. The selinoid when activated, allows water to flow from tubing into water reservoir (mounted inside the refrigerator) then cooled in the reservoir then through tubing through Gback out to the base with longer tube routed to the bottom of the freezer door, routed through inside of freezer door up to the spout. You will need to remover the back panel and grill under the front doors to expose the tubing connections and have access to parts. , even remove draws in refrigerator to access the reservoir if necessary. the tubing is easily removed and reattached by pushing the little white rings toward the valve. Now you can check for operation or leaks by simply pushing the water dispenser off and following the path from source to spout, replace defective parts as necessary
