It has sounded almost likely a mechanical cricket is stuck in the freezer. We had seen frost on back wall of refrigerator -- I was overdue vacuuming the coils and did it really clean. The frost is gone, but now no ice. Maybe coincidence...
I've cleaned out the entire freezer and fiddled with the ice maker, but no reaction. Any ideas?

Not a whole lot you can do but to keep the frost down.
If you are able to move the items in the freezer to another freezer and let it sit overnight, all your problems will melt away....
Until a couple months later when it builds up
Make sure to double check your freezer is sealing correctly, bad gasket causes moisture to be sucked in.
the inside fan that blows air from freezer to fridge side located on back wall either stuck has build up of ice or some debris is stopping or slowing it down open freezer door and look at back for fan remove cover and or frost covering hold door switch and look and listen to fan if labors or just hums remove and service or replace
checklist: freezer fan running, compressor fan running, compressor running, any frost buildup on back wall of freezer. you may have to take a rag and touch the compressor to feel if its vibrating to see if its running unless you can hear it. please reply
Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap. Post back if you need more help.
Frost is due to outside air leaking into unit. Check on back wall to see if hole for ice maker fill tube is still plugged. If not and you have no ice maker cover hole with tape. Also look for water or ice build up in bottom of freezer or ref. sections. May have a plugged drain. Let me know what you find.
Is your fan blowing in the freezer?
Frost on the back wall of the freezer usually indicates a defrost problem... defrost themostate, heaters, take back panel off and check evap for frost build up and if your fan in working.
Your automatic defrost system is not working which is the indication of the frost on the back wall. When the freezer does not come down to temperature it also affects the ice maker. This kind of problem is from a bad timer, defrost heaters or defrost thermostat. I do not think you want to tackle this problem yourself. Call a service man from an appliance store that handles your product and give him the same information you gave here with the exception of the removal of the frost on the back wall.
