I have a Kenmore side by side model 25358082898. I have had the water shut off to it for several days because the filter housing had cracked and was leaking. I purchased a new housing and filter also and installed them yesterday. Now that I have turned the water back on the ice maker is not working. I can hear the water come on and it sounds like the tray is filling with water but when I check there is no water in the tray. The water in the door is working fine so I know water is coming thru the system. Any ideas?? Thanks for the help.

... but when I check there is no water in the tray.

either it's going somewhere, or maybe the line is frozen somewhere

upon further investigation I have found that the line that comes in from the back of the refrigerator to the ice maker has blown loose. This would lead me to believe that possibly the inlet line is frozen. If this is the case can I just thaw it with a hair dryer??

yes, carefully, but the frozen section may be inside the Fridge

Valve could be dribbly and allowing water to leach through

tried the hair dryer trick last night and it made ice all night. Thanks, looks like it was just a frozen line.
