Unfortunately, this can be one of two problems.
The most likely problem is the ice maker itself. This can be ordered at an appliance store.
The second possibility, although unlikely, is the water solenoid in the back of the fridge. This is what sends the water to the ice maker or the dispenser, depending on what is asking for it.
I would start with the ice maker. If you would like me to look up the part for you, I will need the model and serial number.

If you have any questions, please post them here. If not, please click accept. If you are satisfied, please leave me feedback so that I know how I am doing.
Thank you!

This website will give you a reference:
AP Depot
If look at the parts diagram, it will show you what the icemaker is and where it goes. You just have to enter your model number, then click on Icemaker on the left side after it loads. You need part number D7824706Q. This is not the part listed there because the number on the diagram subs to a new number, which I have listed for you. You can either order it off a website using that number, or take the part number to an appliance store near you.
Hope this helps!
Thank you.
