Question about Frigidaire FRT18IS6CW Top Freezer Refrigerator
I doubt it is a switch, but more likely that the installer either (1) did not turn the water supply back on again after reconnecting or (2) has pinched / crushed the line when putting the fridge back in place. You can do the checks in whichever order you like - but realize if it is pinched / crushed, turning the valve in the steps below won't fix it.
Slide the fridge out carefully. Locate the water supply line and inspect for evidence of the line being crushed. If it is, you'll probably have to replace at least the damaged portion, or the entire length. If no evidence of being damaged, continue.
Look carefully at the cold water pipe(s) near the fridge - this could be under a nearby sink or even in the basement if the fridge is on the first floor. Look for a strap that is clamped to a 3/4 inch or so copper pipe that has a narrow (1/4 inch) copper or white / gray plastic tube coming from it - and run toward the fridge.
Near the smaller tube on the clamp, you should see a very small handle to a valve. Turn it in one direction or the other. If it will only turn in one direction, it is possible that it was in the OFF position when you found it (although it may be on but the crushed line is preventing water flow). Most of these valves turn several times before they are fully open, but some can also leak when open all the way, so I suggest you either open it just a few turns; or open fully and then turn the opposite direction a full turn.
I hope this helps!
Allow 30 minutes (or up to an hour) for the ice maker to produce.

He probably turned off the water connection in the basement where the tube connects to the water main. there is a little t handle you have to turn clockwise.
