According to your user's manual, "If water flow to the ice maker or dispenser decidedly decreases or if an objectionable taste or
odor returns,change the filter sooner than
"Leave the refrigerator door open while removing and installing filters or plugs; this will prevent water
from flowing through the system and running into
the fresh food compartment.

Hi, The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Switch the conectors going to the inlet valve. Then open the freezer door, hold the switch to make the freezer think its closed and push the water button. If water comes out by the ice maker then the valve is good and your ice maker needs to be replaced. If no water comes out the inlet valve needs to be replaced
The water supply line is leaking.Put some paper towels down after you clean up and check real often to back track where leak is coming from,maybe your ice maker is over flowing with water.When was the last time you replaced your water filter?Could be backing up,just replaced mine,it was leaking under the fridge,mine is a Sear's Kenmore,ordered a filter from Sear's,Cost me 50 buck's,My filter is at the bottom front,your's may be inside the freezer.
It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze http://servicepartstec.blogspot.com/
I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...
You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.
How old is the fridge? When have you last changed the water filter. Should be down below at the front grille! Try these tasks!
If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open. • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water source line. • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on model) is in the ON position. • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice production. • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely." • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice. • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm? Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil. • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it correctly. • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.
