Check the wire harness connection where the wires from the door connect to the cabinet harness for a bad connection.

Then the relay on the control board which is on the back of the fridge is bad. It is actuated by the dispenser switch. It cannot be replaced, so replace the board.

how do I test it...
Expert:  MRANSWER replied 8 years ago.
The relay cannot be tested- as long as that signal from the disp switch is getting to the board then that is the issue. No further tetsing is needed. This fridge may be under a recall for this issue as well- call GE and see if it qualifies for such.
