The best thing to do is fill the icemaker up with a cup of water and see if the icemaker is still cycling or not. If it doesn't dump the ice out in 24 hours, you'll just need to order and replace your icemaker.

If t dumps the ice but doesn't fill back up with water, check the fill tube behind the icemaker. If it's frozen solid, it won't let water through so you'll need to use a hair dryer to thaw all the ice out of the fill tube. If you find that the fill tube is clear and it still doesn't fill with water, replace the electronic water valve on the back of your unit. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace.


Whirlpool makes the icemaker for Amana if you were wondering.
