Kenmore water dispenser stopped suddenly


Hi again. Some time ago I posted here ( I think here) about my ice maker not filling with water. ( I have tried to find the old post,but no luck!) As it happened I found a small piece of solder (I think it was) in the line. Thats fixed, but now the water dispenser in the door has suddenly stopped. I have taken the line off and blown through it looking for another obstruction, and it is clean. When I push the lever for water there is a slight hum behind the fridge so it seems the solenoid is working (?). The last time some kind soul posted complete instructions, with diagrams on how to check the solenoid and water valve in a Kenmore model # 106-59082891. I wonder if that kind individual is still here and willing to help a novice again? Thanks

I believe I have the problem, may be frozen where it goes up through the door to the dispenser. Will try to thaw it and see what happens.

Actually did that as well, but found it was frozen in behind where the lever is for dispensing. 15 minutes with a fan blowing in there cured it. By the way, is saw from the Sears website for parts there is a heater in there. Any idea how to remove the front panel around the dispenser to replace it? (the heater I mean)
