Is the ice maker section getting cold?
Well, the ice maker has to get down to around 10* F before it opens. The air comes from the back of that ice maker through that damper assembly. How long had it been running when you discovered no ice?
We need the ice maker assembly back in place to get that damper to open, then see the temp in the ice maker compartment. It could be a damper issue, fan issue, hard to say with it all apart.
You will need to put a thermometer in there and leave it for 4 hours or more. Follow a link back from your email to get back here to post results.
But we need to see what the ice maker section by itself is doing, not the freezer.
The ice makes has to be in to control the air flow to the refrigerator, you can't leave it out.
Okay, so just let it be for a few hours and see what the ice maker section temp is.
The water will not be called for until the ice maker reaches 10* to initiate a harvest. So we really need to see that it gets that cold first.

It will be important to know what that temp is because you probably won't be able to feel a difference at 20* and 10* and that will be the difference between ice and no ice.
