It isn't the water supply hose that would be frozen since that is outside of the refrigeration area.You need to verify (if you haven't done so already) that you actually have water supply to the back of the fridge first. If so then take and clean the mesh filter on the fill valve.Use a needle, pin, or a sharp pointed pick to remove it.
Clean the filter (by using toothbrush or a small fine wire brush, and brush it under a slow running water tap). You can see how well you've cleaned it by holding it up to a light and you will see whether there are areas which may require more attention.
Once you are satisfied that it is clean, place it back in and connect your water and test.
Also an icemaker has something called a fill cup, which holds the water from the supply hose as it is being drained into the ice mold. If this ice maker part is not aligned properly, water doesn't make it from the supply valve to the ice mold, and you don't get any ice. Check to make sure your fill cup is properly aligned. You can check this ice maker part by removing the ice bin and having a look, adjusting if necessary. If you have ice forming on the water spout, you could have a leaky water inlet valve, another ice maker part which will need to be repaired.
