If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

If this freezer is like most, the water going to the dispenser is looped around many times in the refrigerator section near the back. Make sure that this is still true. It must have a lot of water cable in the refrigerator section so that the water has time to cool down before it goes out the dispensor. If for some reason the water tube is touching either the compressor motor or another hot part of the external refrigerator it could cause it to be to hot to cool down in time during its travel through the refrigerator as well as it will start to warm up the refrigerator section as well.
Also, I am sure you have tested, but make sure that you are plugged into the cold water supply and not the hot water supply. Check the water at the connector and see what the temp is at that point before it enters the refrigerator.
My guess is that the coil of water tubing that is usually in the back of the refrigerator section has been either lessend in length or the water entering the refrigerator is too hot to be cooled down in time before it reaches the dispenser.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working
I recently had trouble with both my water dispenser and my ice maker. I determined that my filter was clogged, so I replaced it. That fixed the water dispenser but the ice maker still wasn't working. I investigated further and found that the water inlet tube was frozen solid. Aparently, when the filter was clogged the water came in so slowly that it froze before it got to the icetray. I tried pouring hot water over the inlet tube to melt it and it mostly worked, but there was still some ice in the tube further back where I couldn't reach. Finally I defrosted the freezer so all the ice could melt and turned it back on and now it works great! Hope this might help.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

I had this problem and eventually traced it to the water freezing in the fill tube in the freezer. I defrosted the tube and no more problem
