Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

well the heater to come on under the ice maker is normal when the unit is going into harvest mode, the only issue is that unless there is water in the ice maker , the ice maker should not be running a harvest cycle the thermostat in the ice maker should not be allowing the unit to cycle at all without water so the thermostat is stuck so yes you will need to replace the ice maker in order to fix it. If you give me the model number of the unit I will be glad to locate you a replacement and give you the replacement part number, thanks.
