The cold control needs replacing. Thats the knob with the numbers that turn the Ref OFF and ON.
What I do is call my local Appliance Parts Store with my model no. They are extremely helpful .
Get freezer and ref thermometer. Ref is probably too cold.
Freezer should be 0 to 10 degrees. Ref 33 to 35

WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

depending on your model. if its just a reg, side by side, you more than likely need a relay/ overload which is located on the compressor,the relay only works after it cools down. unplug ref from wall, remove rear cover to see and touch compressor to see if it starts when you plug back in to the wall. if it doesnt start in three attempts. replace it. easy way to diagnose..

When an ice maker stops making ice usually the problem is not the ice maker. More often than not there is ice build up on the evaporator coils due to an automatic defrosting problem.

Other times the fill tube freezes up. Item #2:

Check the plastic tubing on the back of your unit to see that it is still connected to this tube. If the plastic tubing has separated from the fitting the ice maker fitting has frozen solid internally with ice.

You can remove this tub by rotating it about 30 degrees and then pulling it out from the back if the unit. You may have to use a hair drier to defrost the tube.

This link will assist you in determining if there really is an ice maker problem:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

It is step by step info on how to cycle the ice maker and test it. The procedure calls for testing (jumpering) a live circuit so be safe.

I think your going to find that you have an automatic defrosting problem that is causing the freezer to warm up to the point that the ice maker thermostat has disabled the ice maker.

The defrost timer is here:

There may be several reasons for this like a leaking water control valve, air in water lines or you may just need to replace the dispenser water line with a kit Part Number 8201537 Try unplugging the dispenser power on rear of refrigerator and tell me if that stops the flow. let me know, Sea Breeze

In the freezer compartment there is a panel on the ceiling of the freezer, remove this with a small spatula, it snaps off, there is a dial that controls the airflow on the panel, inside this panel is the defrost control board, it does not use the old time defrost timer, it uses this part, its about $250
