Hello Raymond, In a most of cases if the filter were clogged it would affect BOTH the icemaker and the in door water dispenser,its never a bad idea to replace espically if they is a foul odor or taste in the ice or water. The water valve on the back is going to the most likely problem if the in door dispenser works yet the icemaker does not,a lot of times when the water valve is bad when its supposed to be fully closed cutting all water flow into icemaker it stays open a wee bit allowing water to seep through it causing the hose that connects to it ,running up the back wall into the icemaker to freeze up at the top where the tube enters into the freezer,that tube needs to be thawed, and to prevent it from freezing in the future the water valve needs to be replaced.
Goodluck,i hope this helps you to fix your icemaker, Gene
have you replace water filter ..... an easy test go to back of refrigerator where waterline goes int fridge and revers wires for icemaker and water dispensor and now use water dispensor it should put water into icemaker that will tell u that the switch to dispensor is working and you have a bad watervalve needs replacesed
If there is ice in the icemaker and its not ejecting the ice you more than likely have a bad heater in your icemaker not heating the cubes for the rake to scoop them out. No water through the door would probably be a separate issue. If its a GE they are known for poor insulation on the freezer door and the water line will freeze going up the inside of the door. If you remove the kickplate there will be a quick connect coupler. remove it from the line going up the door and call for water. If you get water to this point you know the line is frozen through the door. If not then you will want to check your saddle valve for calcium deposits gunking it up. Least common issue would be a bad water valve.
make sure the ice maker over flow bar is in the down position. if it is up it will cut off the water flow untill the level of ice is reduced. The other possibility is the filter is clogged. If neither of these correct the problem you may have a bad coil on the inlet valve for the water line as it comes into the refrigerator.
Most water dispensing fridges have a tank in the fridge to keep the water cold. If the fridge temp is too low it might freeze the tank and stop the water from dispensing. Also check the water filter to make sure it is not frozen. Water filters should be replaced every 6-12 months, if it's been longer than that it might be too full of dirt to allow water past. It also might be the water inlet valve is not opening.
before u call a repair man i would unplug the fridge for 12 hours about depending on weather to let ur line unfreeze if thats the problem the dispenser in the door and the one to the icemaker are two different lines so just because the door works with water dispensing doesnt mean the freezer line isnt froze over
