Water dispenser in freezer door quit dispensing water. Ice maker is working fine. Disconnected water line coupling beneath the freezer door; water will dispense fine up to this point. So this eliminates the filter and valve as the potential cause. The problem must therefore be located somewhere in the freezer door.
Attempted to snake the line from the bottom of the door to the dispenser spout, but kept running into something hard along the way. The GE part diagram for the freezer door didn't clearly show the water line in any detail.
I then tried blow some hot water into the line with compressed air thinking that the problem might be a frozen line. Also tried heating the freezer door with a hair dryer. Neither of these techniques proved unsuccessful. I have read in previous posts that there was a known defect with the design of how the water line was routed in the freezer door on these models causing it to freeze.
Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated at this point!
