Any appliance repair men here?

So i cant seem to get the refrigerator water to work, The fridge is a nice one and only 5 years old. It's my girlfriends and i have tried everything i could think of, and first off, yes the water supply is on. I have used my compressor to blow the line out in case of some sort of blockage, and have even used my shopvac to suck the system and prime it so to speak. When you try to get water maybe an ounce or two will come out, then nothing. What would be the cause of this?

Did you check the filter and manifold plunger? There's a check valve on the thing the filter attaches to on some fridges that goes bad over time.

Do you have a home warranty by chance? Mine covers appliances too. Pay the $50 deductible, if they cant fix it, they replace it... just a thought..

you can still look into it, then wait the 5 to 10 day waiting period, have it fixed that way. bet it would still be cheaper in the end... Go to american Home Shield website

Not a repair man but I dabble, LOL

I have a GE that the water line freezes inside the door, if you turn off the fridge for a half hour with the door open, the line will defrost and work again.

Somewhere in the unit is a coil of either copper or plastic line, normally on the refrigerator side. This is where the water sits and gets cooled and should be protected from products inside. Sometimes something can get pressed against it and pinch or crimp it. Here are a few 'how to' sites that may help.
