Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
For the water not working, check the water supply tube and use a blow dryer to thaw out the frozen line so that water will flow again. If the line is free and not frozen then you will need to replace the water inlet valve. As for the ice not dispensing, check the auger motor. Just thawing it out will not permanently solve the problem, it may also need to be replaced and have a " boot " installed over it. Click on the link below to view the parts you may need:

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working.
There is a solenoid that operates the door that could have stopped working. Can you hear it?
The hinge on the door could be broken or the bracket it goes in could be broken. You'll have to look to see what's wrong.
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don't hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn't work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Sometimes, even though ice is formed perfectly fine in your ice maker, it does not eject out the trays. To solve this problem, you need to check the ejector gear and motor for any fault, and replace them if necessary. Also test the thermostat and ice hold heater in your refrigerator as the problem could be because of these parts malfunctioning.

these causes if the water dispenser does not work: the water supply
line is turned off or is not connected; the water filter is clogged; air
is trapped in the water system (press the dispenser arm for 2 minutes);
or the dispenser is locked.
Insert a drinking glass into the water dispenser. If you can you hear the pump running when you press the paddle with the glass, the electrical and mechanical parts are working. This means that the problem is most likely due to a blockage. Use a flashlight for poorly lit areas in the back of the refrigerator.
Check the water filter. It is usually in the back of the refrigerator and typically will have a plastic cap labeled "water filter." You may need a flashlight to find it. Unscrew the cap and pull the water filter out. If the filter is dirty, you need to replace it. A dirty filter can cause a gradual drop in water output.
Open the door and examine the area behind the water dispenser. If the water lines in the door have frozen, water won't flow. Turn on the hair dryer to a medium or high setting. Apply warm air around the front and back of the dispenser. Continue alternating between the front and back of the door for several minutes. Check the dispenser to see if it starts working again. If not, the blockage may be deeper in the system.
Empty the refrigerator and freezer. Store your perishable items in coolers. Unplug the refrigerator, open the doors and allow the refrigerator to sit for 24 hours. Plug it back in and try the dispenser again. If the problem was a frozen line, allowing the appliance to thaw should have corrected it.
