If you have water through the door the first thing to check is water pressure. If the water is just dribbling out of the door or is coming out very slowly then the problem is with your saddle valve. It will be located in the basement or crawl space usually just trace your water line from the back of the ref and see where it goes. It is the valve that actually taps into your water pipe to feed the water to the ref. You can shut off the water to the house and open the valve up and clean it out with a pipe cleaner or piece of wire or just replace it with a new valve they are only about 10 bucks.
The second thing you would have to check if your water pressure is good would be the inlet valve. You can usually take an ohm meter to the valve (located in the back of the ref behind the access panel) to check the solenoid for continuity.You will want to check the solenoid that feeds the ice makers water line. You could also remove the water line that feeds the ice maker from the inlet valve itself and blow into it this will let you know the line is clear and your fill tube (tube in freezer that feeds the icemaker) is not frozen.
If the inlet valve checks ok, then you will most likely have a bad ice maker. These will often go bad on LG's especially if it is the flex tray style.
Hope this helps. Good luck _MJ_

Microwave oven just quit there an internal fuse that i can replace?

Yes, but chances are it is not the fuse. I just fixed an LG with the same problem by replacing a thermostat, that went bad. On this model the power goes through a filter and then 2 thermostats before it will power up the board. If you are not familiar with electronics and the unit is over 3 yrs old I would just buy a new one. my part was $4 but to have a tech replace it will probably cost you $100.

LG RefrigeratorModel LFX25960ST - icemaker has been replaced once

Most ice maker heads cost less than $49 to replace if you get it at a wholesaler. The water quality going to it will effect how long it will last, Reverse Osmosis treated is the best, filters will help some but are not a cure. Your budget is the determining factor in this equation.

Lg LMV1630st stainless steel microwave oven

I'm confused. If it's 6 weeks old, you can get it repaired free.

If it's 1-1/2 years old, the manufacturer will cover the part cost of the magnetron (assuming that's what's wrong) and you will have to pay for labor and any other needed parts.

Also, the subject line mentions a model LMV1630ST while your message body mentions model LMV1680BB.

For Goldstar / LG / customer service, help, call 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit here.

Chances are your problem is a bad magnetron, but it may be another high voltage part.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Most microwaves have a fuse inside. Disconnect power and remove the outer case. If you follow the power cord, it should be connected to a fuse.
