Should be the modular style icemaker.  If no ice is in the mold, might have a bad water inlet valve or a frozen fill tube.  If ice is present, check that the shut off arm is completely down in the on position.  While looking at the icemaker from the front, the ejector rod fingers should be pointing to the 2 o'clock position.  If not, remove the motor cover and inspect the white drive gear.  Check the tabs at the center that lock the gear in place.  If tabs are damaged, replace module.  Inspect the icemaker mold coating for flaking or wear.  If flaking found, replace icemaker.  If all else is good, try to cycle icemaker by bypassing the icemaker thermostat.  Insert a jumper wire into test points T and H on the module.  Drive gear should begin to move clockwise.  Remove jumper wire after about 5-10 seconds.  Unit should call for water when the ejector rod fingers are at the 12 o'clock position.  If no water, check inlet valve for proper voltage and check fill tube for restriction.

Model may have a Fuse in the IceMaker wire Harness

If there is Ice, but it's not "harvesting", Freezer temperature may not be low enough

or a bad icemaker thermostat which would mean a new icemaker
