Residential refrigerator, Winnebago Journey 2011

I have a 2011 Journey. The refrigerator in door water has no pressure. I looked at the plumbing diagram and found that the supply seems to come from under the sink? I tried changing the value configuration, but no improvement. I also checked the rear of the refrigerator and the line coming in was fine. If I have a kinked line I cannot see it. Help

Does the refrigerator have a water filter?

If this is the first time you are using the mh this season I would agree with al2ride and suspect the water filter if it has one, they just plug up completely when plumbing antifreeze gets in.
The other possibility is, and I don't know your specific fridge, but if an electric switch operates a solenoid that could be the cause of the malfunction - just a crapshot.

Like Cypress mentioned, the filter could be clogged up. Remove it and blow through it. Don't know if you've had the coach long or if it's new to you. If new to you, someone may have removed the filter and without a filter or a filter bypass, it won't work.

I'm just brainstorming, so please forgive me if it reads silly.
Some filters have a tab, plug cap that needs to be pulled or removed?
Or is it electrical?
The tongue on the water dispenser not pushing the switch?
Something clogging the water line itself?
Is the icemaker working if it has one?
Is there an on/off switch for the water dispenser hidden somewhere?

Ok, that eliminates the filter since the icemaker is working and leaves the water dispenser itself. I can't help you with that because it is model specific but I am suspecting a faulty solenoid.

Wait a minute, you said some water is coming out. Maybe the solenoid is just somewhat stuck and needs to be exercised several times. Give that a try, it is just an electrically operated simple mechanical device, you might be able to hear it making a clicking noise when you push the paddle on the dispenser.

Maybe you got some sediment stuck somewhere in the lines. Not sure what to do. Maybe keep trying to exercise the water side. That's if you can hear the valve open. If nothing works out try contacting Maytag tech support to see what they suggest. We never use the water dispenser, but the ice maker is a different story.

I suspect a faulty or restricted solenoid. You should be able to access it by removing the rear panel on the fridge.

Problem solved I found the issue was a kinked line hose . I found the issue under the floor beneath the sink. It was not properly routed, so when the slides on passenger side went out the hose got kinked . Thanks for all the help.
