Question about Refrigerators
With what you've done It seems that some damage was done when the ice jammed. It could be damage to the gears or braces. I will tell you how to check the water supply etc although since you added water to the ice mold and it didn't work points to the ice maker.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips

Take a blow dryer and thaw out the water line that runs into the ice maker. If the tube is thawed and your still are not getting ice then replace the water inlet valve

Check to see if the tube at the back is iced up. If it is, then water can't flow to the tray. A
simple way to fix the problem is to remove the ice bucket and use a
turkey baster to spray hot water into the tube. It may take 15 or 20
minutes to unclog the tube.
The ice maker will not fill with water :
There are a few things to check for...one is a ice blockage in the fill spout tube, this is the hose that caries the water into the freezer section and to the ice-maker. If the elbow & tube has a ice blockage, it is usually best to replace the fill valve and the shut off valve. A very LARGE problem in the last few years has been the self piercing shut off valve clogging up with calcium and junk! Replace the self piercing shut off valve with a drill type shut off valve. You drill a 1/4" hole into the pipe and install the shut off valve the same way you would with a self piercing valve. If the fill spout hose is clear of ice, possible the fill valve has failed. You can test the fill valve coil several ways, ohm test - check coil on fill valve for continuity - no continuity = bad valve, volt test - cycle ice-maker and check for 100-110 volts to fill valve....proper power to the valve and no water usually = bad fill valve. You can also make up a test cord and put 110 volts to the fill valve alone to see if it is capable of passing water in to a bucket. If the water supply lines are ok and the fill valve is functioning properly, you probably have a ice-maker problem and may need a new one. This test cannot be done to all refrigerators, if any doubt post your full model and serial #'s in the Q&A section and we will check on this for you. Information derived from www.applianceaid.com
