Yes unit was built by LG. The light broplrm is most likely the motherboard along with the light socket assembly that would have to be rreplaced. There is service information that the repair should be cover by an extened warranttee from the manufscture. The service flash sf46-515 indicates this and was recently put out. call Sears for service. Please note: recheck your model number as the one covered in the service info ends in the number :"one" insted of a "0"

If you have both ice and water stopping you have a water supply issue.
Water enters under city pressure through an eighth inch supply line.
Start simple and work from there.
If the fridge was moved the line can get kinked. Slide the fridge out and check you have water to it. You can loosen the supply line connection just a little and you should see water leaking. If not it is a plumbing issue in the house. Most likely a the supply line is kinked or possibly someone closed the shutoff valve to the fridge.
OK so we have water to the fridge.
Water comes in and connects to a water filter and then to the door.
If the filter is badly clogged it can cause low pressure to the door and that would cause the problem. Check the filter.
If no go still then check where the water is stopping.
Remove the from cover from under the unit. That is the plastic grate at the bottom of the fridge. It will just pull off but be gentle and take your time so as not to break anything.
Water supply will run through a clear plastic hose. It runs to the filter then to the bottom of the freezer door and up through the door.
You can sometimes see where the water has stopped and clear or replace parts as needed.
There is a connection just before entering the door from the filter. You can loosen that to see if you have water to that point.
If you have water past the filter the problem is in the ice maker and water supply inside the freezer door. Water can leak here, expand, and crack plastic parts easily.
If there is water to the door then you need to dig into that. This gets a little more complex to describe but in short take the ice maker out and check for water supply or broken parts. The problem is probably before the ice maker as your water in the door is not working. This indicates it is not just the ice maker.
Hope this helps.

Look for a lever to select cube size right on the icemaker.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Elite
this is caused by one of two problems. The foirst being the water valve will no longer open due to water deposits on the valve. This can very easily be replaced by pulling the unit out from the wall and removing the rear panel using a 1/4 inch socket. The second problem and cheaper of the two is to replace the switch that controls the water valve, both the parts you need can be ordered at Sears, using your model number. Here is a diagram of where the switch is and how it breaks down. Diagram
