SOURCE: Ice Maker
Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Possibly the water valve (also known as a solenoid valve) on the back of of your refeer has gone ka-put. It is easy to find and spot. The water line from your source (out of the wall) goes to this valve. If it is not operating, you will get no water supply thru that line into your dispenser or your ice-maker unit. No water in means no water and no ice out. This is a pretty simple fix you can do yourself. The part is reasonably priced. Get the model number of your refrigerator off the door and contact your local distributor for your brand. Make sure you turn your water off at the wall, or house, before you start taking that plumbing line apart. Otherwise, get yourself a surfboard and lay in a good supply of paper towels. Take your time and unplug your unit from the wall to be on the safe side...

there are two water inlet valves on the back of refrigerator, one for icemaker the other for water in door. the valve for the water inlet is plugged or the soelinoid coil is bad. replace faulty valve, usually about 20 to 30 greenbacks at the appliance parts store

There will not be a one word solution to this but if we test the areas beginning with the water supply line we will come to a answer. You need to look at where and how the water line is connected to the water service line. Shut the water supply off at its source. remove the water line on back of refrigerator and point water line into a pan or bucket and have someone turn the shut off back on. If flow is poor then the suppline has a blockage at the tap valve that is (not recommended) or a crimp in the feed supply line to refrigerator. If that turns out to be OK then we move to the dual water control valve part number 67006322 It also may be that the valve is not opening well due to being worn out, I am ready to assist you when you are, Sea Breeze
