okay this is a common failure on these. the auger motor has failed. you will need to order and replace it. its under the ice bucket on the door remove the bucket and the motor is under this. you can order this at the following link. it around $116.00 .

I've tried replacing that part and it still don't work. I've been advised by sears to replace ice maker.

Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
you replaced that already ? If this is making ice and filling the ice auger assembly which you said above that it is then the ice maker has nothing to do with your issue, the ice maker itself has nothing to do with the auger. If you replaced the motor the only other thing would be the dispenser control board not the ice maker. these don't go that often but if your motor has been changed I don't know of anything else.
