Ice maker just stopped working with no other problems. No water flow from Refrigerator valve to ice maker - water dispenser works fine.  Assume it is the optics parts?  Any help would be really appreciated.  By the way, water pressure is great and I had just changed the filter.

Is the right side optics red light blinking when you open the fz door? IF optics working, pull I/M to look for flaking coating ;also check I/M feed tube is clear (at top of fz compartment).

A couple of other points to check.  The home position of the fingers that push the cubes out of the mold is just above the mold (about 1/2 inch).  If it is stopped in this position, problem most likely  would be the optics or thermostat in the module housing.  If stopped somewhere else in the cycle, check for bad motor (Module), Heater, or thermal fuse.
