Kitchenaide refrigerator ice maker would not make ice

My Repair & Advice

Ran out of ice and saw that there was no water in the ice maker. Did research and knew it was either the supply valve or the ice maker not working. Further research, I could see that the ice maker was not going into a harvest cycle so felt it had to be the ice maker. I ordered the ice maker and watched the video on replacing it. Took me about ten minutes and two common household tools to fully do the replacement. Turned everything back on and the ice maker immediately filled with water and is working perfectly. I could hear something rattling around in the old unit so clearly something broke inside the unit causing it to malfunction. Anyway, success and an easy repair for anyone with basic mechanical skills.
