I have a whirlpool modular ice maker model wr30x10093. Everything works fine water fills, thermostat closes and turns on mold heater but I have to tap the ejector blades to start harvest cycle.If I do not tap the ejector blade the mold heater would melt the ice and the thermostat will open shut off the heater and the water will refreeze. I was wondering if it could be a dead spot in the control module or a bad motor.

probably easier to get complete ice maker, you can get the head piece separately but can be difficult to install,  motors get a dead spot

That is a part number for a GE ice maker and you change whole unit. Model number of refrigerator?
