check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.

un familiar with model, so am basing this on all the commercial ice makers I repair. Check the temperature probe that goes from the cct board to the ice bin if it has one ( very likely) if corroded where wire enters the stainless cap then is most likely faulty. if it is not registering correctly it can cause the unit to stop producing ice altogether or can also overproduce. It may just be a thermostat instead of a probe and again these are common items to fail. As for no water going into the unit, the solenoid valves that are used are also prone to failure of the coils and so wont open although probes / stats are always the most common fault,
If the plate is frozen solid and has oversized cubes formed, make sure the probe/stat is still attached to the evaporator plate, if it is then it will need replacing as it cant see the ice is formed, so just keeps freezing, never going to defrost to release the ice or trigger the water to come in, again very very common in commercial ice makers.
