Removed the control and motor assembly by removing the plastic cover and three screws. Shut off the power to the refrigerator while removing the control and motor assembly (and also when installing the new one). Tested the motor using an AC power cord. The motor had apparently failed. Ordered the repair part and installed it taking care that the motor drive shaft and shut off arm were correctly aligned. The icemaker began to work properly when power was restored. The cost of this repair was about half the cost of replacing the entire icemaker.
