I first verified that the icemaker unit itself was functioning. I did this by opening the frezzer door and pushing the light switch in, and lifting the cover to "watch" the icemaker. After a few minutes, the icemaker cycled---by that I mean the the plastic "forks' which "push" the cubes out, rotated. This, to me indicated that the gears and motor of the icemaker was working. Upon inspection, however, there no water was being dispensed into the "ice tray". Other sites indicated that the water tube can and do ice up, preventing water from being introduced to the tray. I saw no evidence of this---which indicated to me a bad water inlet valve (which is solenoid operated). The valve is located in the bottom rear of the refrigerator, behind a removable panel. Replacement is straight forward---remove an replace old unit, and your back in business!
