I moved, and now the water no longer comes out the door
I recently moved and when I hooked the fridge back up the water no longer comes out and the ice is not being replenished. I did have to take off the door in order to get the fridge out of my house. I have also verified that water is being supplied to the fridge. Please help!

Did you recently move the fridge? One possibility is that the supply line in the back of the fridge is kinked. Usually it is coiled so you can move the fridge out and back damage but if it gets kinked, it would limit the water supply like a hose does when kinked. Also, the supply line is usually tapped from under the sink. Make sure the valve that supplies the line (usually 1/4 inch line) is fully opened. If that fails to help, then you're back to the solenoid valve for water that is not fully opening. Should give a solid clunk when actuated. G
Check diameter of pipe. Suspect its quarter inch. You will then probably need to purchase e.g. from ebay etc a 1/4'' to 3/4'' adapter which will allow you to connect your fridge pipe to a typical water pipe connector (i.e. similar connecting a washing machine), assuming you already have an available water conenction in the lcoation of the fridge!
There probably were spacers. Also be sure that the refrigerator is level, side to side and that it is leaning just slightly back. If not leveled, it can actually throw the cabinet off and it will be out of square.
