Question about Maytag Refrigerators
I unplug the fridge for 24 hrs to see if the line was frozen, that was OK. I had the double water valve tested that was OK, it seem that the ice box is not communication with the water valve.
Almost all ice makers have a on/off switch. I did not see in your answer that you did not checked it.
Assuming the switch is in on, in most ice makers there is an electrical plug that provides power to the ice maker. To check this plug you typically have to remove a couple of screws that anchor the ice maker to the cabinet. After removing these screws, lift out the ice maker until you can see the plug. If it is not plugged in, plug it in.
There is also a bin switch in many model that needs to be lowered in order for ice production to commence. It will look like shiney metallic bail and needs to be lowered. During normal ice production, as ice is harvested the fresh batch will push on the this bail and if it pushes far enough it will cause the controls to stop ice production. Once the ice level lowers and the bail is allowed to lower, ice maker will start making ice again.
Hope this helps

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

THE ICE MAKER WILL STOP CYCLING WHEN THE TEMP IN THE FREEZER GETS ABOVE 10 DEGREES. IT HAS A BUILT IN THERMOSTAT THAT TRIPS AT 10 DEGREES.
CHECK THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER FOR FROST. IS THERE A FROST BUILDUP ON THE BACK WALL? IF YES,
THERE IS A FAILURE OF THE DEFROST CYCLE.
THREE ITEMS ARE INVOLVED IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT.
THE CONTROL(TIMER), BI-METAL, AND HEATER. FIND THE CONTROL BEHIND THE TOE PLATE NEAR THE CENTER. THERE IS A KNOB THAT CAN BE TURNED TO ADVANCE THE
TIMER. WHEN IT CLICKS AND SHUTS OFF THE COMPRESSOR AND FAN, IT IS IN DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT FIVE MINUTES AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY SIZZLING OR A RED GLOWING IN THE FREEZER. IF THERE IS, THE TIMER IS BAD. REPLACE IT. IF THERE ISN'T, THE HEATER ASSEMBLY WITH BI-METAL WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.

HOLLOW ICE FOLLOWED BY FROZEN WATER CHUTE ARE THE FIRST SIGNS THAT THE WATER INLET VAVLE IS OR HAS FAILED, IT CAN ALSO CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ICEMAKER BY BURNING OUT THEN TIMING GEAR DUE TO INSUFFIENT WATER OR FLOODING IN ICEMAKER WITH TOO MUCH WATER

The fix to the "GE/Hotpoint Secret" frozen water dispenser problem is the Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit, P/N WR49X10173 that can be purchased at Sears. Just a few bucks. My Hotpoint (model HSM25GFRA5A) had the same issue and GE would not tell me anything but required a technician to come out. The technician had no clue but after making some calls found the heater at Sears and ordered it delivered to me. He had to setup a return appointment but I canceled it after getting the parts and fixing it myself. The instructions are in the kit. Since most all GE/Hotpoint refrigerators (same model group of course) use the same parts/assemblies this will work for lots of folks. See pic below. If the area behind the cover looks like this it may be the part. Feel free to email me for help on this (email@example.com). Piece of cake.
