thank you for your suggestion; I determined to begin with that ice was not the problem. Water is frnished through the tube to the grommet #810 but it does not go through to the ice tray. I used a heat lamp around the grommet area to make sure there was no ice in the fitting. What can be blocking the water?

On something like this the valve has leaked past & froze-up the fill tube to the icemaker. You should be able to pull the frozen fill tube #261 out to defrost, and then replace the water valve to prevent the same problem in the near future. You can access the fill tube by pulling out the fill grommet #810 from the back or remove from inside the freezer.

Water valve; WR57X10048
