Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The most likely to be causing the lack of ice production is a frozen fill tube. The easiest way to diagnose ice maker trouble is to manually fill the ice maker and see if it dumps in a few hours. If it does, the problem is water path related (bad fill valve, frozen fill tube, etc). Let me know what happens.

how do I get access to the fill tube to inspect it? un freeze it?

On that model it is not easy. Everything is very tightly assembled. Did it drop the cubes when manually filled? the parts breakdown pictures for that model are at the link below.
