Ice Maker Won't Dump Ice?

I have a Kenmore model 596.58642891. The ice maker is full and will not dump the ice into the bin and makes a clicking sound. What could be the problem?

Sometimes our ice maker will quit making ice. This tip works every time. The cause has been (apparently) a cube has become lodged where it should not be. We unload the freezer(pain) and use a hair dryer directly pointed at the ice maker, on high heat, for about 20 minutes. This melts the lodged cube and the ice maker works again.

I just had my repaired by Lowe's it was not crushing ice guess what the crushing blades were bent so it would not drop any ice whether it be crushed or cubes.
