Icemaker gets water but does not make ice. When we go out of town and refrigerator is not used it does make ice, but it stops a couple of days after we get back. Items in freezer stay frozen and new items freeze normally when we are there. I tried turning freezer setting colder and that did not work.

Re: Icemaker gets water but does not make ice. When
If your ice maker is not producing any ice at all, it could be due to
various reasons. Firstly, check the right side of ice maker for a wire.
The wire will be in an erected position, if the machine is turned off.
In such a case, lower the plastic lever present in there or the wire
directly if there is no plastic lever. This should be enough for your
ice maker to start functioning once again.
There could also be a case of blockage in the ice maker fill tube. If
this is the situation, use a hair dryer to melt any ice stuck in there
which is causing the blockage. Replace the tubes if necessary. Check the
ice maker assembly for any cracked up or broken parts. Especially check
the gears and plastic arms along the ice rake, as these are more likely
to break down compared to other parts. Replace them if needed.

The issue is likely that the icemaker fill tube is frozen due to poor water pressure. You can use a turkey baster to thaw this tube which fills the icemaker. Make sure you use plenty of hot water because they often freeze back several inches!
The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker
Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.
You're alredy replaced the Water Valver - Still Not Working. Shut your water off - disconnect the water line to the from the back of the refrigerator at the top where it goes into the icemaker. I used zip tie or something flexable to see if it would go all the way through to the tube inside the refrig. If you have obstruction - use your hair dryer to thaw the ice from inside the refrigerator tube. When the flexable goes all the way through. Hook back the water line to the icemaker. You will have ice soon.
first please check you water delivery chanel behiend icemaker, it may freeze up...
second you water valve on bottom part on the back is duel( one valve for water dispencer and another one for ice maker) you have to check if it is a power going to that icemaker valve, unplug icemaker inside freezer and plug back now check for power but you have acting fast, ask somebody for help...
and third it could be icemaker it self...
good luck for additional questions please email@example.com
Sounds like your icemaker is overfilling if you are finding a layer of ice in your freezer compartment. I would change your water valve located in the back of the unit. Or look at the icemaker to see if there is ice cycles hanging down from the tray. If you do not see any, you may want to look at your freezer drain to see if it is clogged causing water to be drained in your home. Coulc be several different things honestly. Hope this helps!
your plastic water tube coming in to the icemaker is probably frozen needs to be taken out and remove ice not letting water come in to icemaker I have run on this alot in the field.This seems to happen [alot] when you turn off the water to the icemaker
