Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator
If the ice maker isn't making any ice, first make sure the wire on/off switch inside the freezer is in the "on" position. It must be locked into position in order to work. Even a small shift can turn off the ice maker.
If the ice maker is turned on and still isn't producing ice cubes, take a look at the tube that transports the water from the water line to the ice maker. If the tube is iced over, ice could be blocking it. Soak a towel in hot water and wrap it around the tube until it defrosts. Listen for the flow of water.
If the water is running through the tube and no ice is being produced, the tube may have a leak. Look for icicles or thick patches of ice on the tube; those can signal the location of a leak.
Freezer temperature also plays a role in the ice maker's functionality. The freezer must be set at 8 degrees F or below for the ice maker to cycle properly. Check the thermostat, usually located in the refrigerator.
Keep in mind that the water supply valve usually has something to do with it. If the handle on the valve isn't turned to the correct position, the water pressure will be too low or too high and the cubes will not be the correct size. If the valve handle is in the correct position, the water supply valve could be clogged. The valve contains a filter that the water feeds through before proceeding to the ice maker, and if too much gunk builds up on the filter it can hinder the water flow. The valve could also contain a bad coil, an problem that would need to be tested for and repaired by a professional.
I could identified the problem as the water pump. The water dispenser is producing water, but water is not being supplied to the ice-maker, then, if your Model LFX25960ST is correct, there is a Dual Valve assembly and the replace part number is 5220JB2008A.
Call or looking for any LG parts shop center. Hope helps.

Hi, is there any water in the ice tray? If not, pour some in by hand. Wait for it to freeze and see if the ice gets dumped out as it should. If you get that far, but it doesn't refill, then one of two things is likely:
A: if you just set this up, it hasn't cycled enough times for water to make it to the ice maker yet.
B: The ice maker water line is damaged or the water inlet valve is not working. (There are two valves in one unit, one for ice, one for water and one can fail even while the other works - you can swap the output hoses to test this and then press the water button.
If it never cycled the ice out, then then problem is proably in the control mechanism.
