Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

It is often the case that if the thermostat is not working, the best route to take is to replace it rather than try to fix it, unless you have the necessary knowledge to do so. Most of the time, these are not as expensive as you would think and can be easily installed into the refrigerator. Here are some steps to follow to find out what the best route for you to take is in repairing or replacing your thermostat.
Locate the thermostat and get all necessary model numbers, serial numbers and model codes. This information should be available for the refrigerator itself as well. Use this information to find and purchase the correct thermostat for your refrigerator.
Next, remove all power from the unit. Unplug the unit completely and make sure that it is not running before moving forward. Then, remove the old thermostat by cutting through the wiring.
To install the new thermostat, trim the lead wires to the right length. They are generally too long to start with. Terminate back into the circuit. The device will act as if it is a switch. This means that the direction or the coloring of the wires is not important. So long as you can cut off the current moving through them to the main defrost element you have no problem.
Make sure to properly dress the wires to insure that no part of them comes into contact with the defrost elements as this can cause them to melt.
Replacing a thermostat doesn’t have to be a lot of work, when you know what the problem is and can get easy access to the parts you need. Determine if your thermostat is bad by running through those tests first. When you do replace it, make sure to test to make sure it is working properly by allowing the unit to cool for several hours and testing the temperature within it.

Look for the possibility that there is power on the refrigerator. The door gasket must be tight that cooled air isn't going outside. Check the temperature control, be sure it is in correct setting. Also the defrost timer setting, set it to the correct settings.
Be sure also that the freezer has no pinhole otherwise it is cause by a sharp object punctured the evaporator.
Thank you for asking.
