Question about Refrigerators
I have a GTS17FCSERWW purchased in Sept. 2007 and am having problems with the ice maker jamming. It jammed amd broke one of the fingers on the cube stripper-the snap in L shaped plastic piece that strips the cubes from the top of the ice maker. I need to replace this piece & would appreciate any suggestions to solve this problem.

If the cubes are fusing together (such as when you overfill an ice tray), your solution could be as simple as adjusting the fill volume (there should be an adjustment under the front plastic cover, and the cover should just pop off and snap back on unless you see screws attaching it) and when your ice maker was replaced this probably wasn't calibrated correctly. Your mention of the side of the maker bulging also leads me to believe the water is overflowing and freezing within the dispenser (causing it to bulge and not dispense).
I hope this helps and Good luck.

Not real familiar with that specific model but it sounds like the heating element isn't working to loosen the ice from the tray as it's dumped. A typical ice maker has a small heat element under it to melt the surface of the ice just slightly while it dumps.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

You will need to replace the icemaker. The sensor that activates the heat coil in the icemaker is bad. The heat sensor allows the cubes to be released from being frozen to the ice tray. Check ebay for a new icemaker. About one third the price of manufacturer for new factory unit.
