The fix to your problem is to remove the ice, warm up the tray with a hair blow dryer and thoroughly dry it. Then spray it with PAM cooking spray which is an edible lubricant. After that dries, turn on the ice maker again and the ice will dispense. Joe

it sounds like the control board of your refrigerator is defective and needs to be replaced. The control board controls the display panel, buttons etc... You need to replace the control board to fix the problem of the buttons and display.
As for the ice-maker, investigate each of these two areas if your ice-maker is not making ice;
1. Water Inlet Valve
2. Defrost Thermostat
Water Inlet Valve: Your ice maker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer. An ice maker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned.
Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it.
Follow the below directions to test your water inlet valve;
Before you begin to test your ice maker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box.
Consult with an appliance repair technician if you do not feel you have the skill or the ability to successfully complete this test.
It could just be that your freezer thermostat is not set low enough. Try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. Or your ice maker might not be making ice because of a defective defrost thermostat. Test your defrost thermostat to determine if it has malfunctioned. If it has, you will need to replace it.
