Ice maker not dumping ice into overflow tray inside French door.

Ice maker not dumping ice into overflow tray inside French door. My ice maker seems to work fine when getting ice from fridge. However, we have the overflow tray inside the French door freezer that is not getting ice. The fridge is pretty new and it used to fill. We do not use all that much ice for the tray to stay empty

"Water Inlet Valve

The water inlet valve is an electrically-controlled valve that opens to supply water to the dispenser and ice maker. If the water inlet valve is defective, or if it has insufficient pressure, it won’t allow water to flow through. As a result, the ice maker won’t make ice. The valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Make sure that the water pressure to the valve is at least 20 psi. If the water pressure is sufficient, use a multimeter to check for power to the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve has sufficient pressure and is getting power, but the ice maker won’t fill with water to make ice, replace the water inlet valve."
