I spent quite a bit of time diagnosing the problem. When the ice maker first stopped working, I noticed the fingers that push out ice where pointing straight down and frozen within the cubes. I pulled out the ice maker and let it thaw so I could move the fingers again. The gear that turns the assembly was not in the correct position after several tries, I finally realized that the heater element wasn't working, so when the fingers started to push out the cubes, they would stick and the gear became stripped.
In the end, I replaced the whole unit which wasn't cheap, but was making cubes within an hour of installing the new unit.
