The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Are you talking the valve in the back up from the floor or do we have to take the back panel off?

Yes it's up a little from the floor. You might have to remove the paper like cover. It's part 800 on the diagram of your sealed system here. Replacement parts for GE GSS22JEPDWW | AppliancePartsPros.com
