Ok you have a common issue,the insulation in the door has become water soaked from condensation and it has frozen thus freezing the water line up in the door to the dispenser .

You will need to unplug the unit and let it defrost (which will take several days ) or do will have to replace the door the door is almost $500.00 I can provide the part number is ***** would like it?

Makes sense, I'll try the defrosting first. Thanks

Yes the blown in foam insulation can have a void in it and the void creates condensation and then the insulation get saturated and then it too freezes .

Not the best design but not just GE uses it ever manufacture now uses it .

You may need to let it defrost for say 4-5 days ,and if you do not let it dry out it will just end up freezing again !
