So the bigger problem than the icemaker is the water reservoir for the refrigerator dispenser. You're going to need to pull the refrigerator forward and remove the lower back access panel to see your electronic water valve. There are 2 water lines coming out the bottom, one if for the icemaker (smaller line), and the other is for the water dispenser (larger line). You'll need to blow compressed air up through both lines. Put a large cup in the dispenser to catch the water that comes out of the dispenser when you blow the line out. Once blown out, reconnect the water lines. As for the icemaker itself, you wan wait for it to thaw out and then stick paper towels into the top of the icemaker mold and soak up all the water in the icemaker, or you can unscrew the icemaker from the left side wall and disconnect the power cord. Then dump the water out and re-install the icemaker.
