Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/ICE Maker not working

Question
QUESTION: We have a Whirlpool side by side fridge model # ed5phaxmb10 its about 10 years old.  Our ice maker just doesn't make ice.  Although we can get water from the door.  

The fridge came with our house so we don't know about the past maintenance on the system but like I said water does come up through the fridge to the dispenser freely and the dispenser part works just no ice is being made inside the freezer.

Thanks!

ANSWER: Reach inside the freezer section and then inside the ice maker.  Is there any water in the mold right now?

QUESTION: No there is no water anywhere in the ice maker, its dry.  But the water still comes out of the door where it should and flows slowly but freely

Answer
Using a turkey baster, pour water into the model and then walk away for a few hours.  Upon return, check the bin and tell me if there is ice cubes in the tray.  When replying, please include your brand of refrigerator and model number so I can see your unit as you do...
