It happened to my Frigidaire too when we turned off the water under the sink because of a leak. It was going through the motions of trying to make ice but there was no water coming in to fill it. I took several suggestions from similar posts. I flushed mine out with warm water from the back of the fridge after unplugging the refrigerator and unscrewing the water line from the back. Tiny pieces of ice slid down the chute. I thought it was still broken because it didn't fill the ice cube tray with water immediately. The next morning, to my surprise, the ice maker made us a generous supply of ice cubes all night long.
Hey all you people with Icemaker problems. Don't be so fast about calling a repair man. My icemaker stopped working and it was not filling up with water. The first thing I thought about is that it probably was froze up so I took a hair dryer and turned it onto the back of the refrig were the water goes into the icemaker. Be careful not to leave it very long for fear of melting the tube, just keep doing it every so often and yes it works my icemaker is working fine. I also turned the temp down on the freezer alittle. There is a little tube behind the icemaker were the water runs in, I also took the icecube tray out and held the blower on that for alittle while. You will be so happy when the ice cubes start dumping out into that tray.

No water is getting to the ice maker in my Frigidaire. The ice maker is mounted inside the freezer. At first there was too much water coming in. It would just overflow. So I changed the water valve because you can blow through both ends and was told that it was bad. I put a new one on. Now I'm getting water to the valve, but not out the side to the ice maker. I tried turning the screw on the front of the machine for more or less water, but nothing worked. No water is coming in. Thanks.
