The heating element, located behind the back plate of the freezer, is probably not working. A failed heating element leads to a build up of ice around the evaporator coils in the rear of the freezer. If the back plate of the freezer is removed (ONLY DO THIS WITH THE APPLIANCE UNPLUGGED FROM THE POWER SUPPLY) and there is a large build up of ice around the evaporator coils then it's a fairly good indication that the heating element is not working. The heating element comes on periodically to defrost/de-ice the evaporator coils. Heating element is often activated by a small timer switch which turns the heater on for a set time every 24 hrs or so. Heating element may be open circuit or timer switch may not be operating. Most likely to be open circuit heating element.

The Ice maker is an independent device and can be removed and fixed separately from your unit. Remove icemaker's two 1/4" hex head fastening screws and unplug the electrical connector. Visually inspect unit looking for broken or loose retainer, arm or strip arm or defective ice mold. Click on the following link to see an exploded diagram with the parts names and prices. If the price of the unit parts amounts to over $100, you may consider replacing the whole unit. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-GD5RHAXNB00/1198/0165000/W0409046/00012?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
Your unit model GD5RHAXNB00 was made by Whirlpool/Westinghouse.
