You must check whether or not you are getting water. Disconnect the water line to the water valve located in the back of the refrigerator. If, you have water from the supply , then you may a defective water valve. Changing the ice maker is usually the right move. The kit comes with a new water valve and head. Just to make sure. Check the water supply tube to the ice maker in the back of the freezer. If , it is frozen then no water can come through. If, it is frozen then you definitely have a water valve problem.

can b one or two things wrong here
(1) how sure are u that water is not just continuously flowing into tray (at low rate) ??? reason I ask is a leaky solenoid valve is a very common failure on ice makers
(2) is arm that rotates thru ice tray ,not obstructed by anything ? ive seen Frozen pizza's hold a swing arm down and not allow it to raise to shield the ice tray in a dumping cycle (im speaking of "hold" arm ! thin steel arm that raises up in a ice dump cycle )
(3) of course could be a defective ice maker as well ? theres lots of motors and gears and switches inside there that could malfunction and prevent it from working
there is sometimes an armature that raises when the ice tray is full.you can raise this arm is you want it to stop making ice.look said arm and lower down into on position.it will fold down into a spot near the full level of the ice tray.
The problem is the ice maker, the modular head of the ice maker has broken, hence the clicking sound and the raised arm stuck up. You will need to have an accurate model number and contact a local parts distributor for a new ice maker. It is a simple repair usually only 2-3 screws.
Make sure that there are no kinks in the water line.
Next, inspect the feeler arm of the ice maker and make sure that it is down and not blocked by any ice cubes. If it's raised, it has turned the ice maker off. This arm needs to be in the lowered position to activate the ice maker An over-abundance of ice in the bin will make the arm stay up as a safety feature to keep the ice maker from making more ice than the bin can hold.
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.
It may be turned off. Check the Ice
maker shutoff arm located at the top of the ice bin. Look for the wire
along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat
hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned
off. If so, simply lower the wire.
there water in the ice cube tray? If not check for water to the water
valve. If you have water then it could be either a failed fill valve or
ice maker control module is not activating the water valve.
Check for pinched water supply line (behind the fridge)
you have an inline water filter? If so, when was it changed last? To
test if it is plugged, check for water both before and after the filter
the water inlet tube that directs water into the ice cube tray freezes
over; this can often be thawed out by simply using a hair blow dryer
and warming the area (be careful not to overheat the plastics as they
can warp or crack). Then adjust the freezer to a slightly warmer
setting and make sure water is not constantly dripping from the inlet
tube, as it will only freeze over again.
I took the arm of the ice-making machine out of the slot and put it back in, pushing it snugly inside the slot, then raised and lowered it several times. Then, with the arm in the up (stop making ice) position, I felt inside the ice-making tray, where I noted there were ice cubes as well as a sheet of ice at the base of the ice-making tray. I poured approximately 24 oz. of hot tap water into the tray to melt the sheet of ice. I turned the freezer temp control to "warmer". I think the freezer temp setting was too cold, causing the ice maker to freeze the water before it could make cubes. I have a working ice maker again!
The small metal arm that raises as the ice fills in my GE side by side with water and ice in the door is stuck. Will go all the way up but only half way down. No other obvious issues. Have felt inside the little tray to be sure nothing was jammed or frozen.I need help !!
I have this model and it has stopped making ice for two different reasons. These solutions may not fix your particular problem, but they worked for me.
Problem #1: the water inlet to the ice tray is frozen shut. Solution #1: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. The water inlet is the black rubber nozzle on the right-hand side that points down into the ice maker. Squeeze the rubber nozzle between your fingers to break up any ice that may have formed inside the nozzle. This will clear the water path into the ice maker. Lower the ice tray door.
Problem #2: an ice cube is stuck in the ice tray. Solution #2: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. Look for any pieces of ice that were not completely ejected from the ice tray - they are usually partially ejected and are very easy to see. Carefully (but it may require a good deal of force) remove ice cube from tray. Lower the ice tray door.
