To thaw a frozen water line on an ice maker, unplug the refrigerator, and heat the water line with a hairdryer until it begins to drip. When it stops dripping, plug in the refrigerator, and replace the ice bin. This procedure takes several hours and requires one or more towels along with the hairdryer.
