Question about Refrigerators
You'll need to first defrost/thaw the freezer and the water line in order to get water flowing again. This can take some time, so you might want to shut off the ice maker by lifting the ice maker bin arm, which will stop it from cycling/calling for more ice to be made.
You can try to thaw the line by using a household hair dryer, but unless you have only a small area of the water line frozen, it could take some time. That is why it is best to empty the fridge/freezer and keep the doors open and the unit off to allow for a complete defrosting of the unit. Have towels, sponges and buckets handy to get all the water.
It sounds like it could just be the frozen water line, but until you thaw it out, you can't really determine if that's all it is.

Yes The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
