CHeck to make sure your freezer is 0 to 5 degrees. If it is warmer than that the water valve wont open to the ice maker. Have you replaced the water filter?

All you'll need is a 6' long piece of tubing. One that's got a 1/4" compression fitting on both ends. You can get one at a Home Depot or Lowe's (and you can see what I'm talking about here).
Install is a breeze. Just roll your fridge out enough so you can get behind it. Hook up one end of the tubing to the valve on the wall and the other end to the connector on the fridge (that should be near the bottom on the right side... but it could be on the left), tighten both connections really snug and turn the water on at the valve on the wall. <--- remember "righty tighty, lefty loosey". Then use a flashlight and look for any leaks (this is crucial, so take your time here). Look carefully at both connections and make sure they don't drip... watch them a minute or so each. After that, all you have to do is roll your fridge back and you're done!

SOURCE: Ice maker has stopped making ice
Check the ice maker to see if there are ice cubes in the ice maker. If so, there is a problem with the ice maker heater and / or motor. You may be able to rebuild the ice maker by replacing defective parts, but it might be easier to replace it as a whole unit instead. If there is no ice present, it is likely a problem with the ice maker water lines / solenoid.
There are usually two solenoid valves and tubing systems for these types of fridges. One actuates on demand for water whenever requested, and the other operates automatically to make ice cubes until the ice cube reservoir is full.
Carefully push/pull the fridge away from the wall.
Unplug the fridge from the outlet.
Shut off the water supply to the fridge.
Remove access cover (usually the on the bottom) from the back of the fridge. Follow the tube that comes from the top of the fridge (for the ice maker) down to the bottom of the fridge.
Inspect visually for sources of the leak on tubing and related parts. Carefully check by hand for leaks in areas not readily visible - including the back sides of all the tubing, too. There may be sharp edges that can cut if not paying attention. If a leak is found where the tubing connects to other parts, you may be able to simply remove the tube and cut it back an inch or so if there is enough slack.
It may require that some special fittings and parts be obtained to reconnect and some compression type parts are designed for single use. If this is the case, gather the parts and bring them to a local hardware store for assistance obtaining replacements.
If a solenoid valve is found to be the culprit, due to a crack, etc. a trip to an appliance parts store will be required - unless able to purchase online. Part prices can vary widely , depending on the source.
Once replacement parts have been secured, reconnect after disconnecting power & water supply lines. When satisfied with the installation, reconnect power and water lines and test.
Carefully slide the fridge back into position - taking care to not crush the power or water lines.
