the system has two dual valves. 1 for water, 1 for ice maker. valve 1 feeds valve 2 via water filter. Voltage to operate both valves was present when water dispensor switch was activated. Both valves are on bottom backside of fridge in opposite corners. Problem was valve plunger was stuck. Tip: valves come apart without removing the entire assmbly. the coil or plunger can be replaced. The nice thing is water lines feeding the valves don't need to be removed if valve problem is one of the aforementioned parts.
Of course make sure water supply to fridge is shut off!
