Normally it is not recommended to place a refrigerator near an oven, that's what most people would agree with - however, I have an encased oven near my fridge and never had problems - Keep enough air flow at the back and sides of your unit to allow the heat from the condensers to dissipate properly - Of couse your oven will make your unit work longer, but sine you are not running your oven 24/7 I don't see the problem.
With modern refrigerators, the condensers are at the bottom with a fan blowing air on them so I wouldn't worry about it - Just make sure that your refrigerator is not exposed to excess heat, that your condensers are clean and that you have the proper clearence at the back and sides.
By manually moving the ejector blades you have now broken the ice maker module. (The brain and the motor of the icemaker). Kitchenaid had a batch of thermostats that arent working properly in these Indoor ice makers. I reccommend getting an entire new IDIM icemaker. You will have the improved module whith stronger gears (however you still cannot manually move them) and the improved thermostat.
