On the bottom front side there is a small square test button. Hold the test button down for 5-10 seconds. Does the ice maker start a manual cycle if you hold the button down?

Turn the ice maker back on by pressing the ice off button again.

ok...turned it back on and pressed the test button for 10 seconds....nothing

The ice maker is going to be the culprit. Use a blow dryer and heat the ice maker assembly up. It's possible a small piece of ice is stopping the motor from rotating. If defrosting the housing does not work, the ice maker would need to be replaced to fix this issue for sure.
