Question about KitchenAid Refrigerators
Ice maker not making ice. Empty tray and not cycling. Reset arm and no luck. Water tube not frozen or clogged.
Put some water in the tray. Let it freeze and once frozen will the ice then empty into the ice bin? If yes then the problem is possibly one side of the water control valve is defective. This is not the correct water control valve for your model number. HERE You need to provide the correct model number first.
What is the model number? I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

That on/off arm...you should be able to move it and it will likely make a small click when the switch goes on or off. That arm controls the ice making. There is also a float, is it working freely? It has a switch too. Ultimately, the water is controlled by a solenoid valve. It may be defective. Many of these units are removable to test the switches with a multimeter. Turn off the water and remove to test. Some parts are available...some parts are by the unit only.

I had this same thing happen and I just fixed it! After returning from a long trip, I threw out the old ice (now mostly shrunk), but no new ice was being made. The tray where the ice is made was completely empty/dry (maybe any ice cubes there had "shrunk" away to nothing as well? perhaps part of what keeps the freezer "frost free"?).
So I filled the tray with water using a small measuring cup -- which is what the manufacturer suggests when the refrigerator is new. Now it's making ice again just fine! This might or might not work for you, but trying it won't cost you anything.

refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one
for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that
the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

SOURCE: NO WATER IN ICE MAKER
From what you've described, it sounds like you have a defective inlet water-valve.
I would remove your outside rear bottom panel; disconnect the 2 prong wires connected to your ice-maker water valve (blue with black solenoids) and check for continuity using an ohm-meter setting. If defective, replace. Whats' your model #?
