Good Morning, I have a GSH25JFTA CC side by side GE refgriator and the water dispenser stopped working. I checked the water flow to the dispenser and warmed it up with a hair dryer. It worked for 2 days and then stopped again. I checked the water supply again and am now talking to you.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

So it sounds like you located the problem and that is with the water line freezing up inside the freezer door. Unfortunately this was a common issue for this model as the refrigerator got older because the insulation in the door would break down and the water line would freeze as a result. Due to this being a common issue, a kit was designed by GE to run a heater down the water line in the freezer door which stops it from freezing. Below is a link to the kit you'd want to order and install and it comes with instructions.
