Tammi, you first want to check to make sure the water inlet tube to the icemaker is not frozen shut. Next, get yourself a jumper wire about 4 inches long with the ends stripped exposing the wire on each end. Pull off the ice maker cover, it will pull right off. Now you are looking at the module. On the module, left side, you will see two test points marked V and L. Insert one end of the jumper wire into V and the other marked L. You are now sending 120 volts to the water valve and water should fill the ice maker providing the inlet tube is not frozen over. If it doesn't fill, you either have a bad water valve or module itself. Also check to see if the clips that hold the center gear on the module are not broken. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: water line to ice maker frozen
Check to make sure that the damper between the freezer and fridge is not broken or frozen open. Make sure that you shut off the water supply to the fridge until you get this fixed because the line could crack and then you could flood the house.

You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

To All With This Same Problem ,
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw holding it on ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will disconnect the power to the door dispensor .
Using a butter knife or small screwdriver , insert it in the bottom of the dispensor cover between the grill and the cover .
Push down and in wards , to force the bottom of the cover outward , being careful not to break the 2 or 3 built on plastic clips on the cover .
After the lower portion has been disconnected , lift the cover up to disconnect the top clips and then remove the plug on the cover .
The white piece on the dispensor now visible , is the bracket control .
The switch on the right side , is for water , the switch on the left side , is for ice . Usually , the ice switch , has a broken " spear " , which holds the switch in place . The whole bracket control , pt # 2180226 , will have to be replaced . Only 2 or 4 screws hold it on .
This part is easily replaceable by the consumer .
Just be careful when installing the switch , not to break the new " spears " and be sure to reinstall the plastic " spacers " in the same spot on the new bracket .
When reinstalling the dispensor cover , slip the top on first , and just lightly " pop " the bottom back in place .

I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!
