We have a fairly new side-by-side model (one year or so)
Don't know the exact model #, but it's one of the following:
54543500, 54534400, 54536400, 54539400,
54542400, 54544400, 54546400, 54549400
The ice maker is not ejecting the ice cubes into the tray.
It makes them, starts to rotate to eject them, but then stops there.
We melted the ice, dried it. New ice was made, with same result.

If it does fill with water, but does not eject the ice cubes to start a new cycle, I would suspect the ice maker motor(Item 37). BUT if it is the motor, that part costs $91.22 and you can replace the entire ice maker (Item 100) for $157.95
The ice maker is basically frozen. There are two fixes for this condition. If you can transfer all of the food out to another appliance you can unplug and open the doors and let it completely defrost on its own.
the other method is to use a blow dryer. When you have completely defrosted the ice maker and thoroughly dryed it spray the ice cube tray with pam cooking spray which will act as a lubricant. When you are ready to make ice again expect the ice maker to take about 24 hours before the first batch of ice cubes are ejected.
HI, You can use a hair dryer to the bottom side of the ice maker and it will let the cylce finish and remove the cubes. Can you tell if the cycle has started?
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
hi debie normaly the life of these ice maker range from 3 to 4 years then the wtr hardness eats them up and the mold start leaking wtr but if is a fairly new model the you have a faulty wtr vale that is not closing sending wtr all the time to the ice maker repl the ice maker is you see is peeling of the texture inside if it is ok repl the valve
I have this model and it has stopped making ice for two different reasons. These solutions may not fix your particular problem, but they worked for me.
Problem #1: the water inlet to the ice tray is frozen shut. Solution #1: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. The water inlet is the black rubber nozzle on the right-hand side that points down into the ice maker. Squeeze the rubber nozzle between your fingers to break up any ice that may have formed inside the nozzle. This will clear the water path into the ice maker. Lower the ice tray door.
Problem #2: an ice cube is stuck in the ice tray. Solution #2: Raise the door that hides the ice tray. Look for any pieces of ice that were not completely ejected from the ice tray - they are usually partially ejected and are very easy to see. Carefully (but it may require a good deal of force) remove ice cube from tray. Lower the ice tray door.
Sounds like the icemaker thermostat is opening too soon which turns the heater off. The easiest thing to do is replace the whole ice maker which I have seen pretty cheap on ebay. If you want you can test these part with an ohm meter. Check the heater for resistance. If it is ok then replace the module and thermostat.
Usually low water pressure to the fridge will cause this problem. Not getting enough water to the ice maker will cause the cubes to be too small and get jammed easier. Check to see if you are using a self piercing saddle valve on your water line. If so change it to a drill type valve. This will increase water pressure to the fridge. New ice makers will not solve the problem.
