Ice won't drop. HELP! my drink is hot!

I Have a kenmore and it seens that it takes forever to get ice. The bin is always empty. We do like to use ice in my house, but I have noticed that everytime I go to check the ice tray has frozen ice in it, but i will not drop. Is there a smitch, a lever, a faulty ice maker? anything? I haven't contacted the manufacture yet, but that is the next step.
Thanks in advance.

If ice maker is on and ice is in tray I believe the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. The ice maker can be repaired but the waste of time and possibility that other problems could be hiding I believe I would just replace the ice maker with a new one. Go to link below and enter the model of your refrigerator. This will take you to several models like yours. Sometimes it's just less expensive to replace with a new one. The model of your side by side is GSS20IEP and the replacement part number is WR30X10093

Ice maker stopped working

When the ice bin fills up, it won't let the arm all the way down. The arm must go down for more ice to drop into bin. Sometimes an ice cube or two will get caught under the arm and prevent it from cycling. Continuing to use the ice maker will empty bin but no new ice is made. Clear any ice cubes from under the arm and the cycle will start again. My ice maker takes about twelve hours to fill after it has been emptied but ice from the door is available almost imediately.

I have a Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator that has always worked really well. It just stopped making ice.

You will need to replace the ice maker assembly. This is the most common failure.

Emerson ice maker not freezing ice, making small cubes and they are soft and mushy.. seems to not freeze ice solid and takes forever to drop ice

When was the last time you cleaned it by running ice machine cleaner through it. After a period of time algea, or slime will form on the chill plate where the ice is made. Sometimes its invisible to the eye, but it doesn't mean its not there. When this happens the machine will freezse the water, and when the ice tries to slide forward to the cutting grid, it catches on the chill plate. There are no sensors in the machine to tell it that this is happening and so the machine moves forward and starts running more water across the plate, which in turn runs across the ice caught on the chill plate melting it and using it as a ramp to fall into the bin melting the ice there as well. So, try cleaning it before taking any further steps, then if the problem persist feel free to get in touch.

Ice maker won't stop making ice

OK, there's two possible issues but you have to figure out what is happening. Does the ice maker continue to make ice forever and would fill up the whole freezer section in time OR does the ice maker just "over make" ice that overfills the bin which then falls out? If the ice maker just keeps making ice you need the motor module replaced but if it can be turned off by moving the lever up then you need the "modified lever assy." that is on our service bulletins.
