Try pressing the button used for determining the size of cube for 5 seconds or so, this will put it into test mode, it should then automatically go through the cycle. It may be the motor is slipping, I have heard of the arm getting some water on it and freezing in place before. When in test mode see if the water is overspraying onto the arm. Try closing the water valve a little to reduce the water pressure or changing the size of the cube to see if that makes a difference. A tricky one for sure.
Let me know if that helps any.

Where is ice-detecting sensor located in the bottom freezer refrigerator? No ice/water in door, only in freezer (Kenmore)?

On the side of the icemaker, there is a wire bale or arm that is pushed up by the accumulating ice that shuts off the icemaker.

Icemaker stopped

Broken wires at the ice maker or the temperature sensor falling out can cause that problem. Check your digital temperature readout at the top of the refrigerator with the doors open. If it reads 88 88 and has a flashing digit, check the ice maker temperature sensor for a cut or broken wire. The temperature sensor and rubbery gadget holding it in place often fall out of place when the drooping wires snag on the ice scoop or whatever. The sensor assembly is held in place by a wimpy plastic clip that breaks easily. Sometimes the wires get cut or broken when this happens.

After fixing this problem several times, I finally made a metal bracket from aluminum angle, drilled and tapped 4-40 holes in it, and drilled the plastic icemaker to mount it more permanently. I added a wire tie to hold the temperature sensor wire up and away from possible snag sources. The sensor wire and wire tie are not shown in the photo below, but if you have the tools to solder the wires and fabricate a bracket it helps a lot. It is easy to get the ice maker out, once you discover how to remove the drawer from the slides (two plastic clips at the rear of the slides).
Pull the front cover off, take out the two screws, and unplug the wire connector and it drops right out.

Bracket installed. The sensor is not shown in this photo, but the wire comes out the right side and crosses in front of the metal bracket. The wire tie holds it to the bracket near the top center (hole not shown).

Does it take 24 hours for a new ice maker to start working

Thats what manuals say but in all honesty no it does not. The icemaker itself has a sensor in it that prevents the icemaker from turning on until the sensor reads 10 degrees F for a period of time. This is a failsafe to prevent the icemaker to fill with water with already standing unfrozen water in it causing an overflow. If your handy enough, remove the icemaker cover, the white square one, and get you a jumper wire and stick it into the holes marked n and m and leave the wire there until you hear a click. Dont shock yourself either. That will bypass the initial setup and the icemaker will start working normally cycling about every 45 miunutes.

If icemaker did not Start by pressing the test button.: UNPLUG the frig or go the Main Service Panel to the house (BREAKER BOX) and shut off the power and verify NO LIGHTS INSIDE THE FRIG>

Remove the concealed screws holding the icemaker to the ceiling.

PULL the icemaker forward to release icemaker. Using the Flashlight
LOCATE the wiring harness on the ceiling. Look for the RELEASE and Squeeze and pull down. Inspect the electrical pins to make sure all pins are equal and secured. If all is well there?

I would order a Icemaker assembly first since it is the least expensive.
Good Luck and Cheers!

I need instructions on how to remo complete ice

You have 2 screws on the side wall. 3 screws on the bottom of the mold. You will need to remove the back panel and unhook the wires and pull the sensor wire out from behind the icemaker. Sensor just sits in tube. Then go back in front and turn the icemaker towards the center. you will have to clean the alumalastic off. Where old cloths to do this.
I hope the helps you. Make sure the icemaker you have looks the same as the old one.

Water leaking at fill valve or coming from ice tray?

I doubt the mold would crack. Do you see flaking in the ice? Or remove front cover on icemaker and check to see if the gears are corroided. If so it might be the faceplate needs to be replaced. Now depending on your model to remove icemaker you have 3 screws there is 2 screws on the side wall. FIRST remove the back panel and pull the sensor tube out and also disconnect the wires for the icemaker. There will be alumalastic on the bottom of icemaker and it needs to be replaced when you remove the icemaker.
By replacing the faceplate you will correct 2 of possible problems. Part#150

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors
