Hello

For your ice maker to blow a gfci there has to be a short between the netural and ground
If you have a multi meter you may be able to hunt down the short
Look for any bare wires touching the unit itself

All of the wiring is intact. no bare wires, the machine has a wash cycle, it just runs water over the ice makingplate and it works, it has the problem when i turn the switch it Ice making, it immediately pops the breaker I have also tried it on another circiut and it does the same.
