Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
Since you did not mention a model number all of here at FixYa will have to shoot from thr hip. Open the door and check the door switch plunger to make sure that the light is going out when you depress the switch. Even then that same switch can be bad as it has 2 contacts common to the power lead. One for the light and one for the ice auger motor. It is possible for the light to work and the auger motor not to work.

This manual will help you diagnose the problem:$FILE/4322658A.pdf

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Frigidaire galaxy series makes ice but won't dispense

If nothing at all happens then check the micro switch on the lever/button section. This will probably require taking the dispenser section off. If nothing at all is happening its as though it doesn't register the dispense, if the switch worked then at least something would happen ie the flap, the drive motor etc

My Refrigerator makes ice but doesn't dispense water

The water reservoir is probably frozen. Remove the drawer second from the bottom and place a hair dryer on the shelf blowing on the coil of water line referred to as the water tank/reservoir. Let it blow hot air on it for 10 to 15 minutes. Try the water dispense. If the water flow is restored, set the fresh food section one setting COLDER to increase air circulation. Set the freezer to one setting to one setting warmer to circulate air that is a bit warmer. This corrects 90% of the issues related to water dispense.
The other 10% is normally the fault of the water valve.

Here is the water valve to order in case it is faulty.

GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.

There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

Won't make ice

It probably still MAKES ice, it just doesn't dispense it. The ice drawer may be blocked. Remove the ice drawer, empty it, rinse it through with luke warm water - including all non electrical moving parts, dry thoroughly, replace, give the machine time to replenish the ice, should solve your problem. Assuming it is just that it is only that it is blocked.

Problem with kitchen aid superb side by side refrigerator - ice will not dispense. It makes ice, and the water works just fine. Is there are part that I can by to replace the door insert all together?

This is the auger, the unit that dispenses the ice. Check to make sure that the power to the unit, usually plugs into a port in the freezer, isn't dislodged or loose, If that doesn't fix the problem, you can call local part sellers, you can find one on, and see how much for a new or reconditioned one.
Hope this helps
