so -- we have done the troubleshooting -- and have found that we think the problem is inside this part.  I have NO idea what this is called, so will have to just tell you where it is located, and sort of what it looks like!! ;)

It is in the bottom of the back of the refrigerator.  It has an inlet, where the water line goes in -- it is blue on the 'reservoir'? -- and the top is white.  Has a model number of 70 shown on it --

All lines are free, as we have blown all out -- but water goes in this part, and never comes out to go into the line leading up into the actual icemaker.

Husband has taken this completely apart :)  So, what is it called??  and what do you think is the most common problem with it??  And link to the correct part??

Thank you,

that may be the Water Valve for the IceMaker ..

Should have 120v AC at the Terminals for ablout 7 seconds when the IceMaker is calling for water.

do you have a picture of this??

I guess could be the icemaker up in the freezer itself also if it isn't 'calling for water'

correct?
