Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, the most common issue on these units is small pieces of ice stopping the ice maker from turning. Remove the two white headed screws that hold the ice maker housing in place and slide it up and off. Use a blow dryer to heat the ice maker mold up. For some reason when the filter starts to go out this happens. Thaw the ice maker and put the cover back on. Wait 2-3 hours and it should harvest a load of ice.
