GE used insulation in the door behind the ice and water dispenser that absorbs condensation like a sponge and then promptly freezes, also freezing the water line that is encased in said insulation. I had tried thawing it by putting a hair dryer in the dispenser bay but ended up melting the plastic of all the parts of the bay. After I replaced them I used a dremel to cut a square access hole on the inside of the freezer and scooped out all the frozen ice cream consistency insulation exposing the water line. I replaced it with non absorbent insulation and haven't had a water line freeze since.

Took the paper clip, pressed in through the holes on the bottom of the ice dispenser panel. Removed the four screws. Loosened the panel and removed the wires. replaced the flapper door. Then reversed the process. Your video was VERY helpful except for the paper clip. Had to get that off another web site.
