Ok what should I do remove the ejector

The ice maker will need to come out so it can be warmed and inspected to see if it is broken. There is a small screws on the lower right side, under the ice maker. Remove that screw and take the plastic cover it secures off. Then, slide the ice maker out and unplug it.
