Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is***** am one of the experts. I see you raised the question some time ago, do you still require assistance?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
still require assistance
Expert:  JamesI replied 7 months ago.

Are you still able to get cold water?

What symbols are shown on the display?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
We can get cold water
When you press crushed or cubed ice the motor just churns away as no ice has been made
All the functions on the display panel work
Ice function is on
Just no ice being made
Expert:  JamesI replied 7 months ago.

Ok if you look at the the cube tray can you see water sitting in the tray and is there sign of any ice or frost building up?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No water in tray
No sign of ice or frost build up
Expert:  JamesI replied 7 months ago.

Ok its likely the inlet valve has failed, you would need to strip it down and check the valve is working easiest way is to swap over the hoses terminals with the side for cold water and see if the drinking water still works.
