Model: FRS26R4CBE Replace water line that split, now no water goes to icemaker or front door cold water faucet
Is there an airlock? or reset? I cut the water on and off on the inlet valve and there is no pressure problem from the valve...the frig intake has several has 3 or 4 small plastic cups and the inside of the frig has a water filter. It seems odd that the filter would be stopped, I took it off and did not see any problem....it seems to be an air lock or valve block near the inside feed

If the icemaker is loaded with ice or certain areas of the freezer are perhaps overloaded redirecting cold air toward the water output it can freeze. Also if the ICE shoot has ice cubes obscuring it's closure that area gets cold enough to freeze the water. Check after dispensing ice that the round flap is closed.
I open the freezer door and place three regular sized bed pillows placed into white trash bags into the opening being sure to DEPRESS the light latch with one of the pillow placements so it won't constantly sound a door ajar warning.
I then close the door as much as the pillows will allow and place a chair in front to keep the pillows in place for about 25 minutes. Usually this will do it and the water will begin to flow . I draw off enough to run it completely through the entire line . Sometimes a small piece of ice will come out. I had tried hair dryers and all manner of things and just gave this a shot one day and it works when it freezes for whatever reason it will use.
After you changed the water filter and then you were to depress the front dispenser to get water the humming sound that you are hearing is the water inlter valve located at the rear of your machine. You would have to pull the unit out away from the wall to locate the valve. Before you do this did you with a empty cup depress the water lever on the door of the machine for about 3-4 minutes? When you remove the old filter you also take the water that is filled inside the filter out which when you plug in the new filter it will take a couple minutes of depressing the water lever to get the water to flow to the filter then it leaves the filter and goes to the water valve. When it goes into the water valve it then splits where one line carrys water to your icemaker and the other carrys water to the water dispenser on the door. If after the 3-4 minutes you dont have water pull the machine away from the wall and remove the line from the inlet valve that comes from the filter then have someone depress the lever on the front door which would tell you if you had water going past the filter. If you do have water going past the filter to the valve then you would disconnect the line that goes to the water dispenser and see if you can get water to flow out of that nozzle as well. If water is not flowing out of the valve then you would either try to clean the small screens which sometimes get clogged with calcium deposits or you would have to replace the water valve itself. If you have any further questions message me back. Thanks
p.s also if you have no water going to the ice maker you can remove the front cover on the ice maker and use a jumper wire and jump from L to V which would also activate the water valve immediatley
The line to the icemaker won't have water coming out until the icemaker cycles and energizes the solenoid valve. check the inlet tube where it goes into the icemaker. sometimes this freezes shut. you can also check the continuity of the icemaker solenoid.
if the ice maker cycles but is not getting water check the water supply valve that supplies the water to the machine it split and sends water to the door and the ice maker that side of the valve that goes to the ice maker could be bad you can test it with a 120 volt line cord plugged in the wall plug to that side of the water valve if it works with the hose disconnected it may be a blockage or frozen line to the ice maker
Bypass valve incorrectly set obstruction or dirty tank plugged line - lime or other! does cold flow into tank ok? Tank is split water going somewhere you can't see - this should be obvious.
There is not really anything to obstruct the flow normally so there would have to be an obstruction somewhere. Lime, junk, garbage etc build up . On my coach I have lots of pressure on the cold side so hot would have to have the same unless there is an obstruction into or out of the tank. If in the bypass position you have sufficient flow than the lines are ok and the problem or obstruction is in the tank itself. Drain the tank, leave the bottom plug out, open up the pressure relief valve. Turn on the water and see if you get a lot of water draining from the drain hole on the tank. There should be a lot of water coming out of the drain hole. If so that tells you that your getting sufficient flow into the hot water tank. If so your problem is the water getting out of the tank. Like a clogged return line or an obstruction from the water tank to the faucet. A dirty scale lined tank can do a number on tank water flow. Also check to see if the water is going somewhere else, your tank could be split and you just can't see where the water is going!
I have a maytag side by side with water in the door, the cold water works but the icemaker doesn't. No water flow into the icemaker, it doesn't appear to be iced up. Can not tell if the selenoid works.
The reason your fill tube to the icemaker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and icemaker. It most likely always is the icemaker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solinoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the icemaker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same possition. Free info. from-

First thing to do is to check the filter screens in the hoses if they have them second check the screen at the machine hot inlet. If your home has galvanized piping flakes of rust could have clogged the screens. Same goes for the hot side washer bib (faucet) if rust has clogged or any other type of debris you will not get any water.
