Our FP refrigerator is about
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Temp indicator in both frig
The first thing to check when your refrigerator is not getting cold at all is the compressor. Since on your case it's running and the machine is not blowing cold air inside the freezer. You may have (1) a restriction inside the sealed system or (2) have a leak in the sealed system and all the Freon has escaped. Of course if there's no Freon no cool. And this is not a do it yourself job. You will need to contact a local repairman.
However there's another thing that you can check and you can do it yourself. Have your condenser coil be checked. Consider cleaning these first, they get dusty and hairy too specially if you have pets.The Condenser Coils on your Refrigerator is where the Freon gets put under pressure, therefore causing them to get warm. In order for your Refrigerator to run efficiently these coils need to be able to dissipate Cleaning the Condenser Coils the heat. If the coils are covered in Pet Hair or Dust, this will cause the sealed system to overheat. You may use a damp rag or lint brushes. Before doing any checking remember your safety.
Hope it helps.
