I am not sure the thermostat is the problem it may be but not for the force feed you have arm that pull up after the box is field and when you use the ice the arm go down and the maker make more ice and push it to the box if the arm stuck up the ice will not get pushed to the box so the issue may be related to the arm that force the ice in you may try looking at the arm and see if the ice will come to the box by manually putting the arm down and see what will happen then we can go to the next step, remind you that we can not see any information that passed between you and other techs....let me know if that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so I am able to continue providing same...god bless

Double check the thermostat. It is an high limit. By the way if it has continuity at room it should work. if it does not open at critical temp, it will just melt cubes too much.
Check also wiring harness inside icemaker, it should be part 20 on diagram below.
If you do not find anything wrong, then it can be a mechanical problem, for example the ejector may be jammed. At that point the choices are disassemblying or buyng a whole replacement assembly.
By the way, you do not need to replace the whole icemaker, you can replace the molding assembly only: PS1735141
Ice Cube Mold and Heater Assembly (Mold & Heater Assembly) -part 20 on diag.
Here more parts and diags.
