The brillant person posted the perfect solution. We just tried it this weekend. The plastic composite on the handles is not UV protected plastic, so it yellows or turns brown over time. You can't clean it, as it's a defect due to light exposure. We downloaded a diagram of our fridge and learned how to take off the handles. The top and bottom white portions pop off, but be careful when doing so. We gently lifted them off the metal backing and put a butter knife underneath so we would not damage the plastic. You can then see the clips that hold them in place. Gently pry them and they will pop out. You have to remove the top and bottom pieces first then it will expose the screws that hold the handles in place. You need a star type screwdriver-we found one at Home Depot. The metal strip is a simple backing and will just stay in place. Now, the key is the Krylon Fusion paint-Satin White, like the one person wrote. It's for plastic. Clean off the handles and make sure they are dry. Tape off the portions you don't want paint on and spray them outside with the paint. It dries quickly, but we waited about 8 hrs to put them back on. Just put them back on with the handles first and then the top and bottom portions-they cover the screws. Ours now look brand new! Cost? Only $6.50 for the can of paint and we got it at Walmart. If we had to replace them w/new handles? About $175. Thank you to whomever it was that shared this idea. It really works!

Check to see, if the line is kinked. Are you sure, that the part, that is pressed, to release the water works? I'm not an expert on the model. I'm just asking general questions.

The better "solution" is Westley's Bleech-White White Wall Tire Cleaner. Available at WalMart (or most any Auto Supply store) for about $7 for a 1/2 gallon or so.

Is great stuff.

Will clean all sorts of plastics, white or colors, and many other surfaces, too. Works great in and on plastic picnic coolers, especially - freshens them up and removes the stains.

Be careful with it, it is a bit caustic. If you are hyper-sensitive to chemicals, use rubber gloves and open a door for a bit of fresh air when you use it.

Cycle the ice maker and check to see if it send power to water valve, if power is sent, replace valve, if not replace ice maker.

Good luck

Check the compressor to make sure it is running. If not then check to make sure you are getting the proper electrical supply to the compressor.
