Ice cube maker not functioning.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

The icemaker in the freezer compartment stopped

Hi,
The first thing that I would do is to clean the coils...if it has stopped in hot weather it is often because the freezing compartment is no longer getting cold enough... dirt blocking the air over the coils is the most common thing that causes this...

Here is a tip that best explains the procedure for cleaning...

Frost in freezer, fan in

If the defrost thermostat is bad it will need to be replaced, otherwise you will have to continuously manually defrost the unit. The noise you hear is probably the fan hitting the ice. The defrost thermostat assists in melting that ice about every eight hours.

Ice auger motor will not activate when teh switch

Hi, Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

If you remove the ice bucket and try to dispense do you hear the auger motor running? Check the wire connector closely at the auger motor. It's a known problem area. Yes the circuit board is bad and will get fixed by replacing it.

The freezer on my fridge

Hi, you either have a dusty condenser or the condenser fan is not running. Pull the unit out from the wall and remove the lower panel at the back. Check to see the fan is running beside the compressor if not replace the fan motor. Also buy a condenser brush from home depot or lowes and clean all the dust off the condenser. That should fix the problem.
