Our fridge has been well maintained.

As most things are, everything was fine 2 days ago. Yesterday morning after I got off work our water dispenser would not work. I spent the past couple of hours troubleshooting.

1. Disconnected the front and checked the microswitch and shorted the switch together, still no water.

2. Checked voltage at the valve in the bottom rear, approx. 8V at all times. Switch pressed or not.

3. Temperature control drawer on the interior no longer has a display, pretty sure this is linked to the problem.

4. Measured fill does not work either. It beeps, but will not dispense.

5. There was ice in the in the bin yesterday morning, not sure if there will be in the next 24 hours. I will update then.

Summing it all up, no water is being dispensed in any state. Any help would be great. I am an engineer, so if I need to measure voltages or anything, please let me know.
