Check to see if old ice remains inside the ice slots. If not then fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If after the water freezes and cubes drop into the ice bin you will need to replace the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing then the ice maker will need replaced. What is the model number?
Simple if the ice maker is not filling with water after cycling then fill ice maker until full allow water to freeze and if the ice maker drops the ice into the ice bin and then does not refill with water replace the=> WR57X10051 Water Inlet Valve If the Ice Maker does nothing with ice still inside the ice cube slots then replace the=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly These ice makers are electronic and once they fail there is no replacable parts. I am here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to
freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not
to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water
control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will
indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to
be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you
have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this
problem. ThanksSea Breeze
Check to see if the ice maker is filling with water.

after the water freezes the ice empties into the ice bin and the ice maker
again does not fill with water the=> W10408179
Dual Water Inlet Valveis the problem and will need to be replaced.
If the ice maker does nothing and has ice inside then the=> 4317943 Ice Maker Assemblywill need replaced. Thank You Sea
cycle is, fill cycle for 1 minute first. If there is not water entering the unit when first turned on, look for that issue. Water turned off, water valve not working or some restriction, clogged water filters, etc. That is got to happen first. Don't over look the bin stat being bad. Nothing happens if teh bin stat is bad. It sends voltage to the control board that runs the unit.
The water and ice maker are two seperate water control valves built onto the same. Your water control valve for the ice maker may be defective and require that you change the set. Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If the ice maker dumps the ice into ice bin and then does not refill then this points to the water control valve. If the ice maker does nothing after water freezes then the problem is the ice maker. Send me a model number and I will look up the part numbers for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill. You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.
If the dispensor light switches to cubed or crushed , the panel is good . Remove the ice bin , and hold the light switch in . Press the arm for CRUSHED ice , and if you hear a buzzing or hum , then the auger motor is frozen . Use a hair dryer directly on the " forks " for a while , ocasionally holding switch and activating arm , until the forks move . Lower the freezer temp slightly and reinstall the ice bin .
If water is standing in the bin the drain is clogged. If water is raining down into the bin, Machine may not be level or the drain on the ice machine maybe partially clogged. If machine freezes up water will rain into bin too. Water fills ice machine while in harvest and continues to fill until ice machine`s suction reaches 49 degrees and the defrost timer times out.(usually 1-3 minutes after suction line reaches 49 degrees)
you need to remove the i/m from the freezer and make sure the "fill cup" doesnt have an ice blockage. thats where the water has to funnel into the mold. it can get a drip into the cup and then freeze in the cup. clear it out once and try it again, but if it happens once or twice again , then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.
