The water line is frozen in the door .Turn on the dispenser light for several hours , or , use a hair dryer aimed up into the dispenser , or , use compressed air in the tube going up into the bottom of the door ( computer cleaning bottle with a small tube ) , or , air compressor hose at the bottom of the door tube , or , order GE dispenser heater kit pt # WR49X10173 ( it comes with instructions ) . After you get it working , turn up ( warmer ) the freezer temp only slightly .

Testimonial: "Excellent solution I got the hose unfrozen and now the water valve died. Once I replace that I should be good to go. Heater is a must."

    Placed small heater near water/ice dispenser for about 10min and water works again. This after I bought a $50 filter that didn't need to be changed!! Set freezer back to level 7.

Will not dispence water

My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.

Hi, it sounds like you have a bad auger motor on your dispencer. If the button works for water, usually it will work for ice. It is also possible that you have a bad dispencer control board. If you would provide me your model # I could assist you further.

My water line freezes. I have even had the door replaced and with the new door the line freezes. I use a hair dryer to warm it up and melt it. It's a pain, but saves me from buying a new refrigerator. (Which would definitely NOT be a Hot Point).

Okay this is pretty easy to find. Just trace where your water line comes into the back of the refer. You may have to remove the back panel. As you trace it in you will see where it comes to the valve. The solenoids are on the valve, one for the water (if you have water and ice in the door) and one for the ice maker. Both solenoids are on the same valve. If your ice maker runs and dumps fine and you don't have any water on the floor then it is your valve (water side) even though your ice maker is fine you may have to replace the whole valve as it is one unit.
