yup, prior to them doing rollers. this is the unit i have thrown different parts at for 3.5 years now. compressor is out and not being in my scope of repair skills the cost to have it repaired wasnt justifiable, so i have sourced a newer 632 which will be here tomorrow. i am giving this one away free and it is being picked up this evening.

i still have that 500 series manual you sent me a couple years ago, has come in real handy from time to time, cant thank you enough. hope i wont be neeing a 600 series repair manual any time soon. :)

plastic water line going from the solenoid to the ice maker was punctured along the way to me (maybe by me). can it be repaired rather than replaced?

Should be replaced.

You might be able to cut the line at the punture and install a compression fitting.
