I had the same problem. What was happening to my was the silver tube where the water comes out was frozen. I pulled it out and put in in hot water then i put it back in. I also used a hair dryer to make sure nothing else was frozen inside. It works fine now. My frig is 18 yrs old. Now since last night I heard a loud sound like glass breaking. The noise is comming from the motor. We took the backing off to check. The freezer is starting to defrost so my quess is its on its last leg. Maybe someone out there can give me some pointers. Thanks Mrs Ruiz

Your rubber tube is most likely not freezing up and therefore does not need to be heated but only you would know for certain. My experience with ice makes spans several different models but I've found the most common problem for me with no ice being produced is when the bar that shuts of the icemaker gets stuck in the up position because - ice cubes have frozen into a big clump, Ice cubes have jammed the bar by sticking between the ice tray and the bar, or the gear inside that rotates the ice cube tray is stripped in that area because of previous jams and needs to be replaced.
It usually takes about 24 hours to send the first batch of ice through on a new install. Evin if it is an old unit that has been moved. Be sure that the switch is in the on position on the ice maker itself. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.
Remove the front kickplate and clean your coils (only what you can see) .Also check your settings .An icemaker harvests (operates) at 5 degrees . Operates doesn't look like it's spelled correctly , but you get the meaning .
Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors
When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.
