Ok here is the ice maker troubleshooting sheet for that model, first thing to do would be to do the optics diagnostics then if that checks out troubleshoot the ice maker itself. Let me know if you have any questions and what you figure out, if you need part numbers for optic boards or ice maker or the water valve just let me know,

then you gave me the wrong model number, if you would like to double check that information then that would be great and I would be more than glad to continue helping, however if that is the correct model number I assure you that is the correct information.
