My Kenmore freezer (side-by-side) quit making ice. I was taxing

Resolved Question:

My Kenmore freezer (side-by-side) quit making ice. I was taxing it for about a week because I had foot surgery, but then it just quit. It is only 4 years old and has been functioning just fine until now. What can I do before calling a repairman?

look at the icemaker and tell me where the ejector fingers that push the ice out of the icemaker are pointing and if you still have good water supply from the door please

The ejector fingers are pointing down and the ice stripper fingers are pointing back (into the freezer). The water dispenser in the door is working well so I assume that means we have a good water supply????-) Thanks for your help --
