There are several causes of this.
Here is a list to check. Some of this may seem silly, but follow it through.
1 Water supply to back of fridge is shut off.
2 Tube that supplies water is pinched or kinked closed. Similar to a Kinked garden hose.
3 Solenoid valve (electric valve that opens and closes that supplies water to ice maker tray has failed)
4 Solenoid valve does not seal completely allowing water to seep past it. If this is the case the tube inside the freezer compartment will have a solid piece of ice in it which prevents water from going into the ice make. (very common cause of failure) Take very close look at the tube. Usually it can be removed and reinserted fairly easily. You may possibly have to remove the Ice maker. That involves more work, but not a great deal. Let me know if you need to remove it and I'll write you a procedure.
5 Ice maker feeler arm up (crescent shaped cube style of ice maker) which shuts the ice maker off.
6 Switch inside Ice Maker that controls fill valve failed. Or other parts in it failed. Replace ice maker. (usually costs less that getting it repaired)
7 County did not pay water bill to the state, and they shut off your water to collect.
I hope this helps. As it happens to be new years eve. Don't let this ruin it in any way. Get a bag
of Ice at the local store and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR
Best, Mark

( very common problem ) the ice mker may have failed / and the tempt in the freezer must be 15deg or lower . . ck the coils and the fans . this could cause poor referg. and higher thempts . .. hope this helps mm

My ice machine in my side by side is not working It makes the ice but it does not spit them out. The ice "pusher" tries to push it but I think it fills it too much

if its making ice and when you state that it doesn't spit them out . is it that they don't come out of ice mold or do they not dispense through the door . so #1 if they donot come out of ice mker mold then the thermo or the heater in the icemker is bad .#2 if they will not dispense via the door the ice cubes may be too large or water is getting in to storage bucket causing ice jamb . you can adjust mker to make smaller cubes . hope this hepled mm and thanks for usnig fix ya . feed back pls ..

Ice cubes won't eject

if they will not eject . then i would think the mold & or heater have failed . it works like this . it fills / it freezes/ ( the freezer must be 15 deg or lower for ice mker to cycle . ( cck the tempt ) and if ok then the thermo cycles the ice mker . during the harvest cycle the mold heater comes on and warms the mold and releases the ice. the hands move the ice out . .. so if cold enough the ice mker is bad. cheaper to repl ice mker than repair it . in most cases . mm hope this helped feed back pls ..
