this is a hard one to diag in person, let alone via email. you know your not getting water to the ice maker, problem is finding out why, ther is (or should be) a tech sheet behind the kickplate of this unit with a little trouble shooter and diag procedure for the ice maker. folded little blue/and or brown paper.
1. is the water line leading from the valve to the ice maker fill clogged/frozen??? pulll the machine out and youll see the line leadding to the top corner of freezer, disconnect that line and try to blow though to the insde of freezer, should blow withno resistance. if so your good if not youll need to thaw that line
2. is the red light blinking on the inside of door. its a sensor for the ice maker if its faulty you wont get ice either.With the flapper on rt wall of freezer depressed the light should remain on solid, if continues to blink a pattern, 1 and 1 quick blinks, 1 and them 2 quick blinks, youll need to replce the electronics
3. is the water valve itself just not sending water to the ice maker. its a dual vavle 1/2 does water and the other half feeds the ice maker . generallly youll hear the valve being energized, just no water coming through
4. ice maker itself can be damaged and not calling for water at all.a pretty common issue with these electonic control ice makers is the center gear actually over torques itself and winds up snapping itself(at least the tabs that hold ino place snap anyway). gaining acess to the face of the ice maker will tell this.
while looking at the exposed from\nt of ice maker you should see the center gear adn the 2 tabs holding the gear on as well. ther shoud be a SMALL but definite space betwwen the 2 tabs in middle of center gear, as if it were pressed on and the tabs spread back open to hold onto the gear. if 1 of the tabs is cracked or the gear isnot mounted correctly because of the tabs, you best bet is to replace the ice maker assy

You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

Some of these ge frig have a problem with water freezing inside the door and so the water dispenser wont work. only way to be sure it to turn off your frig for about a week and leave the doors open. plug in then try the water dispenser. if this is the problem call g.e. you will need a special kit to solve this problem. it dispenser still doesn't work replace water valve!!!
