Question about Refrigerators
Turn the icemaker off for more than 30 seconds, then turn it back on and
press in on the white lever three times. The icemaker should cycle and
run water. If it does run water the first thing you should look for is
Make sure the fan in the freezer is running.
Look at the back freezer wall and see if there is thick ice/frost on it. If so you most likely have a defrost problem. Remove the back panel off the freezer and if ice is completely blocking the coils from top to bottom you have a defrost problem. If ice is partially blocking the coils you may have an air leak such as door gasket or the flap inside the ice shoot in the door could be hung open, a bad thermistor, or a refrigeration problem.

I think your water line if frozen either in the fresh food section or in the freezer door. To determine where the line if frozen take the line loose under the freezer door and attempt to dispense water. If you are getting water there the line is frozen in the door and if not the line is frozen in the fresh food section.
To unthaw the line if the door open the door and press the door switch and repeatedly attempt to dispense water until water comes out. If the flap inside the ice shoot is hung open it will cause cold air to freeze the water line. If the flap isn’t hung open GE makes a heater that will keep this from happing again part number WR49X10173. For more on this visit this URL http://www.appliance-repair-it.com/GE-re…
If the water line if frozen in the fresh food section remove the drawers in the bottom and use a hair drier to thaw out the line. Blocked airflow will cause this line to freeze.
I hope this helps!
