How did you remove ice from freezer. If you uses any type of tool (Scraper etc) then you have possibly punctured the evaporator tubes. These tubes can be either as a radiator type or form part of the freezer box and are very thin therefore susceptible to puncturing when using scrapers or such to remove ice.
To remove ice from refrigerator condensers allow it to melt, you can use a hair dryer to speed this up but DO NOT use mechanical means.

Take the filter out and examine the seals that are on it. Make sure there are no burrs or gouges. Put some shortning on it for lubrication, reinsert.

it could be your evaporator fan that's located in the back of your freezer being blocked by ice buildup. you will have to turn off the light by either using a magnet or pressing the light switch off so fan will run while door is open. Fan will not run while door is open and light on. Do you have frost buildup on rear wall of the freezer?

LG refrigerator not dumping ice.

I own a LG LFXS24566S and it was making ice but not dumping it.
If I pressed the reset button, it would dump the ice and fill the tray again but once frozen it would still not dump the ice. A technician was dispatched to replace the ice-maker but the problem remained. During the next visit, he had me "reboot" the refrigerator by removing power for five minutes, which fixed the issue.

Check you water solenoid. Could have debris in the tiny inlet strainer

Try and un-plug the fridge for 10 minutes, then plug it back in. It should reset. Make sure the arm is in the down position inside the ice compartment.
