You can search with your model number to see if a filter is available or not. Secondly unless the ice maker was damaged for sure it's likely that the fan is not running in that compartment or air is leaking into the refrigerator and making the ice maker think its not cold enough to make ice.
I would suggest making sure the coils under the refrig are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also , letting the ice build up so it gets closer to the bottom of the ice maker (coldness of the ice will help keep the ice maker cold ) will result in ice maker cycling more often (making ice) .
Put the filter back in . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , then replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also , make sure the coils are clean of dust etc... Reset the controls back to normal or you could create water freezing in door (dispensor) .
Kindly check it could be because of following reasons :
Freezer may not be cold enough. Temperature must be 5 degrees (Fahrenheit) or colder to work properly.
Normal ice making capacity. The ice maker will produce between 2.5 to 4.0 pounds of ice a day depending on your model. Side-by-side models come with a large ice bucket and it may take up to three days to fill this container.
Water supply valve may not be completely open. Open valve completely.
Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough. Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
Water filter may need changing. If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge. Please feel free to contact for further assistance
