Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

KevinWhiteJA :

Please check the water inlet valve, it might be frozen or blocked with mineral deposit. Use a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Make sure the water inlet valve's screen is not blocked. If the issue persists, then the water inlet valve has gone bad, use a multimeter to test the water inlet valve's continuity. Use a multimeter to test the continuity.

JACUSTOMER-q6xshkwc- : Cannot be as the fridge still dispenses cold water
KevinWhiteJA :

it has a dual valve one for the ice and other for the valve...if it is not bad it can be due to a blockage in there

JACUSTOMER-q6xshkwc- : Any comment?
KevinWhiteJA :

as said please try to check it

JACUSTOMER-q6xshkwc- : Where is this valve?
KevinWhiteJA :

it is located where the inlet hose connects the appliance
