If your getting water up to the bottom of the door at that fitting, its frozen within the door might try , hitting it with a hair dryer, at the nozzle and also on the inside of freezer door at back side of the dispensor.( sure beats defrosting entire unit.) but yea def frozen within door itself

Temperature lights out, water panel in door lights out, no water being dispensed

I assume this refrigerator was working. The sporadic water dispensing is usually a dirty water filter or air in the waterline;but after pulling off the kick board and cleaning,assuming again, the water connector, everything stopped working on the door. At the refrigerator door bottom near the bottom hinge there should be an electrical connector(s) This makes me think you may have dislodged or loosened the connections. This powers everything on the door.
The dispenser may be in "locked".To reset, press and hold lock control for 3 seconds. Another thing to try, if these don't work, is to unplug refrigerator for about 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Electronics sometimes get lost and this will often reset them.
And good luck,
Ron L.

Will not dispense water, but still makes ice

Sounds like either the water valve is bad or the line is plugged or frozen somewhere. To check the valve pull the water line off where the water feeds the reservoir have somebody try to dispense water you should have water coming out.If not try to dispense water again and listen for a slight buzzing noise if you hear the buzzing noise and you get no water the valve is bad.Always check the lines for freezing or restrictions before you replace the valve.

Out of no where the water dispenser doesn't dispense water. Cannot figure out why it would do that. The ice maker works fine. We have had our Whirlpool refrigerator model #GI7FVCXWQ0 for almost a year...

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

Water dispenser keeps freezing GE Refrigerator

If this is a newer model GE side by side refrigerator, this is not uncommon. what you can do to check to see what is going wrong, remove the toe plate at the bottom front of the unit. Under the freezer door, you will see a white plastic water line, with an inline connector about 4-5" from where the line comes out the bottom of the door. this is normally a blue push-in type connector. On this connector, you will see two white sleeves on either side, push in on this sleeve while pulling the corresponding water line section out of the connector, if you squeeze the sleeve enough, the water line will slip right out. Place a towel on the floor, make sure both ends are on top of towel. Now, breifly actuate your water dispenser trigger, see if water comes out the exposed water line. If water comes out, your entire water dispenser system is OK, but, the water line in the freezer door is frozen, in which case the only way to melt it, is to turn the unit off, open the freezer door, and blow a fan for a few hours, to melt the ice INSIDE the door. You could also buy a new door, but that is very costly.
If no water comes out the exposed water line, then either your water filter is clogged, or you have a bad water valve solenoid

No water is coming out of the door dispenser.

The most common cause for this problem is a blocked line. The line comes from the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator to the water dispenser. Usually, you can locate the line at the bottom of the freezer door. Oftentimes, it has connectors where you can pull it apart. Try to determine where the blockage is. If you can locate it, run something up the line to remove the blockage. I have had success using plastic weedeater line to do this.

The other possibilities would include a malfunctioning water valve and a malfunctioning water dispenser switch. However, I would check for a blockage first.

Water dispenser quit dispensing but the ice maker still makes ice

Chances are that one of the 2 valves in the assembly is bad. It is on the refrig in back, where the water supply line connects. remove the connector to the water dispenser valve (the other is for the icemaker) and connect a jumper power cord to it and then to the wall outlet, momentarily. If water comes out the dispenser, then the valve is good but the switch on the door is bad. If the valve does not hum, the valve is bad.
I have seen the water dispenser lines freeze in the back of the refrigerator, near the water cooling tank or coils, preventing dispensing of water.

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water

Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

Not getting water out of dispenser in door of GE Profile Refrigerator-Think Line may be frozen

There should be a connector at the bottom of the door , if you get water to here but not through the dispenser then the line is frozen in the door . This can sometimes be cleared by connecting a steamer to the pipe and letting the steam thaw the ice blockage but this will not generally be a permanent repair . If water is not getting to the connector then it may be a frozen water tank in the fridge compartment or a faulty valve
