One thing it could be is that the water solenoid not closing completely. Water drips from fill tube into icemaker and freezes, not allowing any water to get through. This is fairly common and with a couple of tools, you might be able to fix it yourself if you're handy. Could be other causes too, this is the one i'm familiar with.

Could be water valve defective, or ice maker defective. That’s assuming your freezer is maintaining temps cold enough for IM to function

Take out the ice bucket and check the metal arm and make sure it moves freely. Ice may have gotten stuck.

Hi, newer refrigerators have a small fitting at the end of the drain hose from the freezer. You need to remove the compressor cover,take the fitting off the hose and thro it away. If dust gets into it,it gets clogged and backs up into the freezer and freezes under the drawer. You also have to take off the back panel in the freezer so you can remove the ice that built up and covered over the drain opening. Hope that helps.
