Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

On the ice maker module the front portion of the ice maker itself there is a button if you press and hold it down for a few seconds it will reset the ice maker and it should begin a harvest cycle. If not let me know, thanks.

Now that I have given you an initial answer to your question I would ask at this time that you go ahead and rate my assistance because we are not compensated for our time unless you do.

When you turned off the water to the icemaker by any chance did you turn off the icemaker itself?

There is not an off and on button on the ice maker
Appliance Technician: Billy Olenick, Customer Service replied 11 months ago
It sounds like the heater for the mold burned out.At this point I recommend you replace with a new icemaker. Very easy to do. Just remove the old and replace with the new and you will be having ice in no time.
