    I've got a similar model (GS6SHEXNB00), and have had this issue twice in 18 months. My water inlet line seems to freeze solid (freezer set to "2" setting).



    Workaround has been to remove frozen foods, then unplug refrigerator and leave freezer door open for 2-3 hours. Ice maker then works fine for another period of time.



    Consideration could be to set freezer to a slightly warmer setting to see if that helps without compromising food quality.

THE ICE MAKER CYCLES WHEN THE INTERNAL THERMOSTAT REACHES 10 DEGREES. IF THE FREEZER IS WARMER THAN 10 DEGREES, FIND THE REASON FOR THE WARMING TREND.
CHECK THE ICE MAKER TO SEE IF IT HAS ICE OR WATER IN IT. IF NOT, CHECK THE FILL TUBE TO SEE IF IT IS FROZEN. REMOVE THE ICE FROM THE FILL TUBE IF IT IS FROZEN OFF. IF THE FILL TUBE IS O.K., CHECK THE WATER VALVE ON THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR TO SEE IF IT HAS GOOD WATER PRESSURE COMING TO IT.

ALSO, CHECK THE FRONT OF THE ICE MAKER BEHIND THE PLASTIC COVER. THE WHITE GEAR IS SUPPOSE TO BE HELD IN PLACE WITH TWO TABS IN THE CENTER OF THE GEAR. IF ONE IS BROKEN OR BENT INWARD, THE GEAR ISN'T MAKING CONTACT WITH THE CIRCUIT BEHIND IT. THE CONTROL MODULE WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED. OR IT MAY BE JUST AS WELL TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE ICE MAKER.

I actually thought the same thing and than I cleaned out the bulk of the ice and it started working again. I do hope that this is all that is wrong with yours.

Ice Maker not working


Start by cleaning the condenser with a brush and a shop vac. Then get some nickleguard ice machine cleaner and wash the units plate's down going by package directions, then retry before calling a tech. It may start working but if it does not then it may save you some money by having the unit clean before the tech gets there. Ice machines are not a DIY repair. Sowwy
