Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

In most cases that is caused by a frozen water line in the door, you can check to see if that is the problem by disconnecting the water line from under the bottom of the door and get a cup or bucket put the water line over in the buck and have someone hit the water dispenser button if water comes out then the line is froze up inside the door. If it is frozen then you will need to install the heater kit repair for that issue which I have listed below. If its not then the water inlet valve is bad and needs to be replaced, the water inlet valve is the valve on the back of the unit your home water line connects to.
