    my lights at the control pannel are on as is the little blue light at the produce drawer. the fridge seems to be cold enough. the ice and water dispensor is inoperable like the fridge thinks the door is open. i also know if the door is left open for a longer than normal time the light inside is suposed to go out but my doors are comletely closed. one other clue is that the freezer light was working when i opend the freezer but now it stopped also.

    There has been an short circuit oon the control board..This has to be identified using a continuity tester/ohm meter.
    Just check the continuity in the circuit board using them if you have electrical working experience...

    So only i asked you to check the control board . It has all the controlling components in the fridge.If satisfied please accept my answer and rate me good.

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.

the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.

Ge profile side by side

To change the main PCB is relevantly simple as it is situated on the back of the appliance under a metal cover held on by about 9 screws. I would double check that the light switch is working properly also as i have experience of poor connection on the light switch terminals causing issues with not dispensing.

Front dispenser On GE stainless side by side

Could be the connector at the bottom of the freezer door corroded but it could also be the main PCB failing as the low voltage power supply may be dropping out . By the 'light inside' do you mean in the dispenser or inside the fridge ??

Dispenser on freezer door

Check the electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door for corrosion and if it is not that then the main PCB is failing , when it fails the appliance will stop working altogether although the lights will still work inside.
