Okay is the icemaker itself humming inside the freezer or is it sound like the humming could be coming from the back of the refrigerator on the outside?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It is from inside the fidge. It sounds like it is operating normally. Just no ice
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
Okay you don't see the thing is turning either I'll bet correct? Is this actually cycling the fingers going around?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
The gears inside the door are turning. I shut the door, push for Ice and I see they have moved when I re open it. But the fingers on top ice maker have not moved in days.
