In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck email@example.com

SOURCE: ice maker won't dump cubes
the problem is that the tray doesn't eject the cubes, they get stuck and it just breaks them and only parts come out instead of the whole cube/crescent, then the proper amount of water comes in as refill, the tray gets too full and your problem begins. Take the unit out, then take the tray out, its's easy, and give it a light coat of Pam, olive oil or corn oil, the cubes will eject properly. It took me 3 years to figure this out, it willl amaze you.
for everyone with the fan screech noise, replace the fan motor, don't buy the blade, look around the websites, I found it, my second replacement, for 28 but as high as 65.
yeah I hate this fridge too

I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.
