Kitchenaid under cabinet ice maker makes ice for hours, stops. No ice forms. Fan can't come on.

My ice maker makes ice beautifully and normally for hours then no ice forms on the evaporator. When this happens, you can hear the fan trying to come on underneath every 15 seconds or so but cannot. If I turn it off and let it sit for a bit then turn it back on, it starts working normally again. After hours, the same thing happens again. It's almost like something is overheating below, shutting whatever down that cools the evaporator tray. I have read about the fan, the compressor and various valves but the fact that it works normally after sitting off for a bit, then stops after a period of time is puzzling me. Of course, I am trying to target exactly what needs replacing or needs to be fixed. Can anyone help?
