Thank you Robert. Are the fingers that rotate the ice out into the ice bin pointing to the right and just about 2 oclock high?

No,the fingers are pointing down at approx. 5o clock
Expert:  Barry G. replied 1 year ago.
Hold the freezer door light switch for about 2 minutes, do the fingers then start to move?

This is how to make the repair Robert. The the ice maker module is bad. That is the bad part and contains all of the moving parts of the ice maker.

The module is the tan part under the white end cap. Unplug the refrigerator. There are 2 hex head screws that hold the ice maker on. They should be 1/4 inch screws just over the top of it and sometimes one underneath. Loosen the screws on the top and remove the one on the bottom. Lift the ice maker off the top 2 screws and follow the wires back to the wire connector and unlock then pull the connector.

You will then have the ice maker out. Remove the endcap in the picture.

Remove the wire connector from the ice maker, then remove the old module. That is the tan part under the end cap with the 3 phillips head screws.

Install the new module and then put the wire connector back in last just before putting on the end cap.

Once you get everything together plug the refrigerator cord into the wall outlet and turn everything on. The ice maker will cycle when it gets cold.
And one place that has that part online is located RIGHT HERE.

That is about an average price. I recommend that website because I have used them a long time and they have a good reputation. If you wanted to try locally the part number is W10190935. That will be the part you need.

Thanks,

Don't have to remove the whole ice maker, you simply need to remove the white mogul
