SO I have/had this problem. The knocking started almost 3 months ago when I got it. IT got to the point where the ice make will not work.
Just had the repairman out. He started out clueless but over the course of an hour he had the factory on the line, and got it resolved, I was watching over his shoulder.
The ice mold is on a cam. It drops down and around to the right to fill with water, and then back up into the center to freeze the water. HE got a kick out of how it worked, it is kind of cute.
When its going to the right to fill, there is a plate in the back right hand side that covers the copper freon line, it protrudes into the path of the ice mold. As ice/frost build up it bends it more to the point it will prevent the mold from swinging into the position to get water. Thats what happened to me.
There is a kit to fix. He did a temp fix:
1) With the Ice tray out.
2)Remove 2 screws on the front lower part of the ice maker and slide cover off.
3)On the right side 2 freon lines come into the ice maker there is a piece of plastic, maybe 2-3 inches square, with a slight offset to it. That's the problem piece. Remove it, and bend it a touch so it pulls it out of the path of the mold.
WHen my kit comes, I'll just re-install it myself.

is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
