Have a Magic Chef portable ice maker that the well is full

Customer Question

Have a Magic Chef portable ice maker that the well is full but the red light saying needs water keeps coming on. I removed the back and top cover and bent the metal piece that is located in front of the water stream down hoping that would fix it. I put everything back together and filled it with water and the problem still exists. It goes through the motion and just doesn't suck the water up into the top to make the ice.

The water pump is likely faulty. Do you hear the pump humming or buzzing when it begins to run a cycle?
