The ice maker stops working so I have been turning it off and then turning it back on. This generally works. Today cycling the power does not seem to fix the issue. Does the whole ice maker need to be replaced?

Added model number

Hi Dan, we need the model number of your refrigerator. You posted the ice maker part number in your model number.:)

Is there ice in the ice maker tray but it won't cycle the ice out?

Put a thermometer in your ice maker compartment and see what the temperature is reading after it sits awhile. It has to be 10 degrees or less at all times or the ice maker WILL NOT cycle.:)

If your temperature is good, Read post #5 on HOW TO JUMP T and H to do a FORCE CYCLE in this thread:

Here's the ice maker:

Let us know what you find.
