Fails to dump ice. Starting the rotation the gears manually shuts down the compressor and dumps the ice and refills the mold. Ice freezes but cycle does not begin again until the manual rotation of the gears.

is your bin line and dump line tied together if so it could be just ice melting. If not can you here water filling up constantly while machine is off? if so is it running over sump tray into ice bin. if dump valve was stuck open then machine will not make ice.
Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.
Possible cause of this is. 1st the heater is out. 2nd the motor in the icemaker has a dead spot. If heater then the complete icemaker should be replaced. If motor I would replace the faceplate.Part #150 Should be around $55 for part. You can find parts by visiting u-line at www.u-line.com and under customer service you will see parts locator.
You need to check the thermostat setting. If its set too cold it will never dump ice. Warmer the setting the more ice it will make.Also check the temp. If it should be 10-15 degrees. If its 5 degrees then turn thermostat to warmer setting.
The cycle starts when you turn the icemaker on. It starts the dump cycle when the compressor turns off. The mold heater turns on and the cycle motor stalls until the ice cubes release and lets the moror complete its cycle. Then the compressor starts to repeat the cycle. If the mold heater is bad (it should read about 80-85 ohms) it will not dump all the ice and the mold will overflow on the next fill part of the cycle. If the over temperature switch is bad (checks open) It will not let the mold heaters work. The over temperature switch should NEVER open. If it IS open the mold heaters will not heat. MDB
