That happened to me too, but it took more than 1 year. Anyway, I discussed this with more than one appliance person, and was told that failure to change the filter often enough would result in the ice maker breaking. I definitely waited too long to change the filter, longer than a year. Like you, my water still works and the dispenser for both. I chose to buy ice trays & empty them into the ice container. Then they come out of the door dispenser. (01/04/2009)
Try this. Take the front cover off, this should just pop off. Take a real small hammer and lightly tap on the brass coated plate where your plastic gears are and water fill adjustment screw is. Sometimes this will get just a little frost and jam the gears up. Also check your gears and make sure they are not striped. These are plastic gears, you should have a space on one of them that makes it trip for water fill. If that does not work check the line where water comes in take a hair dryer and defrost it. Sometimes they freeze up. Last thing, remove front cover and check for burnt wires. If none of this works you probably need a new one. I have fixed many by tapping on front metal cover where the plastic gears are. (01/05/2009)
Have you tried simply removing and reinserting the filter? (01/09/2009)
