Customer Question

I have a Kenmore refridgerator/freezer with an icemaker that stopped making ice about 24 hours ago. This is a top freezer and is about 20.0 cubic feet. The arm is in the make ice position.
I popped the cover off of the front of the ice maker to see if the electric motor was turning. The drive gear was turning. The drive gear was not meshing with the drive gear. The drive gear popped off easily and was barely on the motor shaft. I then pushed it back on until it meshed with the driven gear. Nothing now moves yet. There is ice in the forming trays. Should I do something more?
