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.

Only frost free models have a drain and that is recognisable by a funnel shaped moulding in the plastic of the cabinet liner terminating in a hole.

Frost free models have a heating element that is switched on briefly after each cooling cycle, melting any ice that has formed over the evaporator. The resulting water droplets are channeled into the drain by the funnel-shaped moulding. The drain leads to a tray fixed to the compressor and the heat from the compressor causes the water to evaporate.

The best thing to check if the drain is clear is a flexible curtain wire and for a good clean a variety of suitably sized brushes are available.
Sometimes the insulation of a fridge or freezer becomes sodden with water and ice tends to build over that area. Where the drain runs through an area of sodden insulation where ice is forming it can be impossible to clear the drain.

Check the outside of the cabinet for cold spots. The presence of a cold spot indicates the insulation is failing and it is time to replace...

We just did ours a few days ago. LG-GR419 could be similar to yours. Freezer part.
We found the bottom drawer stuck with ice - frozen water dripping out from the drain. So, took three screws out. Due to the drain being frozen (could be a result of someone leaving the freezer door open at some point and then just closing it after some melt...the back panel will come off with a tug - after the ice behind it melted. We used a hair dryer to do this - sparingly. Can't afford to melt any plastic.
Then once tugged off, we saw a layer of ice in the tray and defrost that with the hair dryer - until everything is clear. At the back of the fridge, we took off the panel - cleaned the dust clogging the slits - my Goodness, no wonder the fridge was working so hard! Chockablock! Anyway, traced the drain hole to a tube. But at that point, not sure why the drained water doesn't go through the tube - perhaps it is not meant to...maybe it is a slow drip and the fan at the back evaporates the water collected - so that was it. So far, it is back to normal. We also found it quieter.

This unit lists 2 separate water valves, which one did you change?
Did you check for power at the water valve moles plug?

Try pulling the cover off in the back of the fridge and see if the fan is still operating when you push the light sensor switch in but hold it down for at least 10-20seconds to see if it starts.
