If the icemaker has ice in it and it won't cycle and drop the ice there are only 3 reasons it won't cycle.

1. The icemaker could just be jammed with ice. Use a hair dryer and thaw out the icemaker. Then give it 24 hours and see if it works---if not then replace the icemaker.

2. The freezer temperature must be below 10ºF. That is significantly below freezing, but it must be below 10ºF or the icemaker won't cycle.

3. The icemaker could just be bad. If the freezer temperature checks good and the icemaker was thawed out yet it just won't cycle, you need to replace the icemaker.
