Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries - there is a test buttun under the ice maker, if you press it what happens?

Sorry there is no test button under the ice maker my model LG fridge freezer is GPL227SSJA
I assume that the model number is ***** not GPL if so I have attached a video of how to check the ice-maker. Please come back with your observations --

Hi I have checked the suggestions LG says but the lock is not on, there is no ice blocking, and there is still no water coming in to make ice?
You seem to miss what I am trying to do, pressing the lever in the door only operates the auger operation it does not operate the ice maker which operates independently. My question is 'is the ice maker working' and have you checked its operation by following the intructions in the video above? Once we have established that the mechanical operation of the icemaker is working then we can sort out the problem of water input.

I have tested it by pressing button underneath nothing happens

I pressed the test button underneath the ice maker and there is no response
OK in that case you have a faulty ice-maker or connection to your ice-maker. Take the cover off as in the video and check its connections. If you can't find anything lose its likely you will need to replace the ice-maker itself.
