WRX735SDBM00 - ice maker stops working after a few days, water dispenser works fine - Fill tube not frozen

My ice maker will work for a few days and then stops producing ice. The water dispenser works just fine. I have tried the following already:

Replace filter
Checked fill tube - not frozen
Adjust temps in both zones
Defrosted and reinstalled with no luck

I pulled the ice maker unit out and the fill funnel (not sure what this is called) was frozen solid, and the tray was full but the ice hadn't been ejected. Any help is appreciated!
Usually that indicates the water inlet valve is leaking a tiny amount of water in at all times causing that ice dam in the fill cup.

Clear that ice dam, then turn the ice maker completely OFF and see if it still dams up there.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model, if needed:
Water Inlet Valve WPW10349187

Here's the video:
Give it 24 hours.
Ok, then that indicates the water inlet valve is good. So the ice maker itself is possibly the problem.

Here's the ice maker kit for your model:
Ice Maker W10882923

It comes with new wiring that you MUST replace as well.:)

Watch this video:

Well I made it close to two months without any issues then all of a sudden, no ice again. Pulled it out and the filler chute on the ice maker is mostly frozen again. The fill tube was not frozen.

Any advice is appreciated!
That's odd, only the water inlet valve and the ice maker itself control the water flow into the ice maker, don't know what else could be causing this problem.

Hopefully another tech or member that's seen this problem and fixed it can shed some light on this issue.
