Fridge was making ice at other house. Disconnected it from that house moved it to new house. Now ice maker will not make cubes. The fingers did not seem to move at all. took out machine by loosing the two screws. Took off pigtail and took it out. I noticed solid ice in the bottom, i melted the ice and reinstalled the maker. I can not get the maker to work will not even fill up the tray. I am wondering if the motor is burned up due to the frozen ice chunks and the arms would not move.

The water function of the fridge works just fine and new filter.

Ok if the ice maker had chunks inside it that would have caused the ice maker motor to burn out. Since you state the arm is not moving then this must be the case.

But would that cause the fridge not to put water into the try if the motor is not working?

Correct the motor causes the contacts to open and close the valve, if the motor is not turning the contacts wont meet filling the tray.
