GE refrigerator is not dispensing water from dispenser. Why?

Hello. We have a GE refrigerator, model GSH25JFTA WW. It has a dispenser for ice & water. The ice is working fine, but we are not getting any water when attempted. This happened once before and somehow starting again on its own. It has now been over two weeks with no water. What should we check first? We think it is about 9 years old. I got off the plate on the inside of the refrigerator. What else do you need?We had a repair man work on the frig over 2 years ago as there was a leak. He fixed it but admonished us over the simplicity of the fix (??) & how we could have gotten the answer on-line.

I currently have a cooling problem with my Gold Series Whirlpool

I currently have a cooling problem with my Gold Series Whirlpool refrigerator model # ***** S/N K24617073. The refrigerated area is holding at 39f (set at 33) and the freezer is at 20 (set at -5). A little history- I always thought the compressor was a little loud (intermittent) for a new frig, called the tech, he inspected it during a quiet period, so it has always been louder than I think it should be.I have had constant freezer defrost problems, it (the evaporator blades) would ice up so bad it would interfere with the evaporator fan blades and the evaporator blades were a solid block of ice. No frost or ice on the freezer food. We live in Colorado and have very little humidity. I went into the service diagnostics mode and changed the defrost cycle from ADC mode to basic mode which seemed to help but then the freezer warmed up so I switched it back to ADC mode. In the ADC mode I have to manually defrost the freezer evaporator every few months as it is a solid chunk of ice. I have never touched anything just used a hair dryer to melt the ice (I've made that mistake before). In trying to troubleshoot the cooling problem, I inspected the freezer evaporator blades and found a softball size chunk of ice in the upper right side (as you look in from the front) of the compartment. I melted it with no change in temp.I have gone through all the testing I can in the diagnostics mode and cannot find any faults and I can hear the compressor run through its low to max speeds- no clicking, although I still think it is too loud for a new frig. I can hear all the fans turn on and can feel air flow. I can hear the defrost heating element ping as it heats up.Service tests that passed:01- FC thermistor resistance02- RC thermistor resistance03- RC and FC fan motors cycle on and off (pantry damper seems to work)04- Compressor/condenser fan motor/evaporator fan motor05-compressor status / speed06- defrost heater07- defrost mode set on ADC32- ambient thermistor UI control33- humidity sensor UI control34- vertical mullion heater mode sensor operation on35- vertical mullion heater status toggled between on and off36- ice box fan working37- ice box thermistor pass38- forced defrost off39- RC evap thermistor passI have cleaned underneath it as it was slightly dirty with no change in temp, I took off the back panel and the fan that blows onto the compressor is running, the compressor is running and very warm to the touch. Nothing looks out of the ordinary.I suspect the compressor is weak, I tested the resistance on the three male windings off the variable compressor and got 7.0 (run spec 6.4 +- 15%, start 6.4 +- 8%) between all of them. do you have any suggestions? Can the compressor sound and feel like it is working but not be? Any suspect parts that I could try to replace? Any connection between the constant defrost problems and the current cooling/freezing problems?Thanks,Tony

We are unable to get it to slide into place without it feeling like it's obstructed on the inside. Please Help!
