If the water line/fill tube going to the icemaker is frozen, just use a hair dryer and thaw out the tube going to the icemaker. You can know if it's still frozen by disconnecting the water line down by the electronic water valve and blowing through it to make sure it's clear. This is probably one of the more common issues that happens for icemaker so if it comes back, either your water pressure is too low coming from the house, or the electronic water valve isn't sealing up properly and it's allowing it to drip through slowly and freeze so you'll need to replace the valve on the house itself.
