I have a GE side-by-side fridge that has the water & ice dispenser in the freezer side of the door.

Without warning, on Thanksgiving, the water just stopped dispensing. The water line is fine (we've checked it, no blockage) and there's all the ice you'd ever want. Just no water. Bought a new water filter for it today, thinking that might be he problem, but still no water comes out. I can hear the "motor" kick on for the water dispenser, like normal, just nothing comes out.

Any ideas what might be wrong with it??!?!

Check the water line from the sink/water source to the fridge. You could also unplug the fridge while checking the water lines to "reset" the appliance.

Thanks FlyerNation.. we read up more online and discovered, since we'd been gone for a week and didn't use the water dispenser, it froze the line. Used a heat gun and thawed out the line and, with a neat tip from another online person who had this problem, we ran some weed wacker line up into the water line. Now if it freezes over again, just pull the weed wacker line out and the ice comes out of the water line with it!
