Answer:

On that unit it was very common for the icemaker to fail. You can check the icemaker for water and if it has it replace the icemaker, if it does not fill up the mold with water and if it does eject them after a couple hours you may have a bad fill valve for the icemaker or a plug in the fill tube. If it does not eject the cubes replace the icemaker.I have replaced so many icemakers for that style at just 3-5 years old it is crazy. Since you are in Canada you need to contact Sears to get the correct icemaker for your unit since the lookup is not the exact same for US models
