Sounds like the water valve has a small leak and continuously drips water onto the icemaker. Have the water valve checked and if necessary, replaced.

check the water valve on the back of the ref. it sends water to the ice maker and water in the door one can work and the other one not

If The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.
The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.
Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.
I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.

The problem is one of two places,
the ice maker is the reason or the dual water control valve=> 4389177
Try pouring tap water inside the ice maker if cubes are not there. Let freeze
and if ice drops into the ice bucket then the water control valve on the side
that feeds ice maker is bad. GS5SVAXVA00 Parts
List Look up in the scrollbar and go to page 17 and you will see the water
control valve listed an item 5 and item 15 is the ice maker thermostat. That or
the ice maker module are most times at fault if the water control valve for ice
maker side had 120vac connected to it water would possibly flow. I have found
that sometime if the ice maker is bad just to replace would be the best route,
Tell me how the water test goes and if someone has a multi meter or ohm meter I
will answer how to test those components, Thanks, Sea Breeze
