I have a danby dim1524 which behave similarly to yours. After the initial warm up, it tries to pump the water to the ice tray (you can see the pump image at the screen console). Then it failed and showed the error (exclamation point inside a triangle). Did you fix your problem? If you how? What was broken?
I have the same problem, the ice shovel was catching and not moving forward to shovel the ice, this stopped the ice maker. i have cleaned off the surplus plastic from the molding process (on the underside of the shovel) and this so far has cued the problem.
This problem can occur if the unit sits for extended periods without use. The pump head will sieze and the pump will not start. Eventually, the motor can burn out, but, for now, when the unit is trying to pump, you can 'talk' to the pump head (tap it with a screwdriver handle to 'jar' the sediment from the impeller) and (at least in my case) it will start. Has worked for two years in a row, after extended storage. Be carefull with the cover off (right rear), as there is high voltage present when the unit is plugged. in.

I have a Taylor Model 8756-27 and occasionally hear a similar squeak upon starting up. I think it is a belt, but I am still learning about this machine. It has not affected my operation since the sound only occurs upon initial start up. You could take of the back panel to the machine, start it up, and try to determine where it is coming from. Be safe and good luck!
I had the same problem with my machine bought from Costco - did you know that Costco will refund or exchange your item no matter how old or how long out of warranty?
They pledge to make you happy or you can have your membership money back.
we took our 28 month old Blue ice model 80533 ice maker back to Costco and got a full refund and then bought a brand new one. The new one was £30 more but when we complained and then threatened our membership (they did not want to do an exchnage as it was more expensive now) they relented and gave us an exchange.
we understnad from friends that it could eb 10 years old and Costco will still refund your money, so try this.
Check to see if your condensor coil is clean, use an air compressor or other source to blow thourgh the coil,dont just brush it off. newer refrigerant charged systems need as much air flow as possible to work ,also make sure the cover is on the condensor section while the ubit is in nrmal operation. try setting the cube size to lowest setting and let run for 24 hrs. Let me know if you need further assistance.
My friend bought this item last week at Target for the $99 sale price. The reviews were all horrible about the red light (add water) indicator going on after the first or several first ice cube runs and never going out. About 40 out of 60 reviewers had this problem. We experienced it right after the first run when the ice cube full light went on. We emptied it and the add water red light was on. I looked all over the web for a solution and only found one that suggested tilting the unit backwards for 45 degrees and that would magically reset the light. It did not after several angles, light taps and basic shaking. Since there was no alternative and everyone who returned it also got the exact same problem with the new replaced model - we decided to open it up and investigate.
The electronics diagram is on the back of the machine and tell you where the water indicator is. We took it out (an inch long black tube along the water pump and backflow valve) and dried it completely. The cycle still had the red light. We submerged it completely in water and the red light still went on saying that the unit needs water. We determined that this is the bad part and the water indicator is faulty. We cut it out and joined the two wires. IT ALL WORKS NOW FLAWLESSLY. You only have to shut the unit off when you leave since it will ocntinue to run if out of water. If you're looking for a quick mechanical fix and have a unit that works when you need it and you are around - this isthe fix.
