On these models I've noticed that the temperature in the ice maker area warms up due to a ball of ice forming inside the freezer compartment ice maker fan that has vent going to the ice maker. Until it is found whether or not that ball of ice is blocking the vent and fan you won't be able to go to the next step. The switch on the ice maker will test the ice maker by filling it with water and rotating the Forks that dump the ice into the ice bin Appliance 911 Sea Breeze

if when you pour hot water into the drain hole and water drains down through the hole the drain is clear,if water doesn't drain down the drain is still blocked,i use a steemer to clear the drain and install a heater in the drain so it doesn't happen again.you can buy a heater or make one out of the ground wire that's in a piece of house wire or strip the casing off of a piece of cable wire around 6 inches,stick it into the hole and wrap the other end around the heater in the freezer,when the heater turns on the wire also heats up keeping the drain from freezing up.if the drain is clear then you could have a problem with the ice maker or the fill valve is letting to much water flow through to the ice maker,you'll have to keep an eye on it when it fills to see what is causing the problem.

You most likely have a bad ice maker, but it also could be the ice makers valve solinoid is bad as well. You can check your ice maker by removing the front cover and at the bottom right about 1 inch up from the bottom you will see 2 holes 1 of the holes will have the letter T next to it. If you take a wire that is stripped of it's insulation at each end and put one end into one hole and the other end into the other hole it will bypass the thermistat of the ice maker and make it start. If it satrts and runs then calls for water near the end of the cycle and stops then both the icemaker and the valve are good and this would mean you have a cooling problem. A ice maker will only attempt to make ice when the thermistat of the ice maker reaches about 18 degrees.
Sounds like you are not going to use the automatic icemaker, so I would remove the whole icemaker unit which will include disconnecting the wire harness behind the icemaker which will shut off power to the icemaker and will also give you more storage room in your freezer compartment.This will not harm the refrigerator or the icemaker, you could also disconnect the waterline if you want.Please note that this solution applies to the top freezer,and bottom freezer style refrigerators only thatt DO NOT have dispensers through the door. Good luck !
Unless someone has made a water level adjustment there is, Only one repair. Replace the ice maker. If someone has made a water level adjustment you can try this. Remove the ice maker plastic cover. Locate the water level screw adjust it to a minimum setting and try it there. If that does not correct the problem, replace the ice maker.
