Question about Refrigerators
go here and look at part number 810,this is the water tank in the fridge section,get a hair dryer and heat up the tank where the water lines connect to it,also g.e. has problems with the water line in the freezer door the line freezes up.also when was the last time you changed the water filter?try this,open the freezer door and remove the bottom kickplate,on the left side you'll find a connector for the water line,disconnect it shut the door and hit the water dispenser,if water comes out of line where you disconnected it then you know the line in the door is frozen,if no water comes out i would change the filter and it that doesn't work i'd have to say you have a bad water valve.one more thing and this might sound crazy but if i didn't see it myself i wouldn't believe it,when you went to dispense water have you ever noticed that the condenser fan motor would sound like it was slowing down and also the strip in the middle where the doors close together touch it to see if it's hot,i've found three mother boards bad from this,i'd dispense water, and the fans would slow down, i hope i'm not confusing you by telling you this,lets stick with the basic things first disconnect the water line under the freezer door and behind the kickplate,shut the door and hit the dispenser,if water comes out of the hose the water line is frooze in the door,if no water comes out,heat up the water tank with a hair dryer,after a while like 5 to 10 minutes hit the dispenser but water will leak out the tube if the tanks frozen,if that doesn't do the trick i would change the water filter and if that doesn't work bad water valve,if you look down where the kickplate is you should find a tech sheet that will tell you how to jump out the ice maker,now what did you change out the ice maker?you said you changed two parts,what's happening that you changed the ice maker,was it not getting water to it,i mean if you're not getting water through the door and no water to ice maker,you either have a bad water valve or filter,start there and heat up the water tank,if that's frozen you won't get any wateralso look at this it will tell you how to start the harvest cycle on the ice maker,i beleive you shut it off for 20 seconds,turn it back on and move the arm in and out like three times.
hope this helps and good luck,let me know please what you find.

The water solenoid valve should have 120v going to it. (You will need a multimeter to chk this). You will need to also chk. for proper ground when verifying the 120v. If you get 120v on each of the pin clips, then your plug is not properly grounded, which means that you need a new ice maker circuit board. This is located in the in dispenser (front panel opens).

SOURCE: Ice maker not working
I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.
