Kenmore 795.74033411 refrigerator, ice maker part SZAC001SB1. Ice maker fills with water, freezes ice, but then ejector arm can’t get ice cubes out of tray. I can hear motor whirring a bit, and ejector arm looks bowed in the middle like it’s under pressure.

After a few minutes with ice compartment door open troubleshooting, I guess ice melts just enough for ejector arm to turn and it ejects ice to bucket. So, is this a mold heater issue? If I buy new ice make assembly (it’s available for purchase), is the heater part of the assembly? Will this fix my issue or is there something else I’m missing.
