ice maker keeps shutting off


Last weekend I had to take the back of my freezer out to thaw and flush the drain line which had been leaking into the fridge. Ever since we put it back together the ice maker has not been working. If fills and freezes one tray, then the arm pops up in the off position. If we put it down, it fills up one more tray, then again pops up and turns off.
Any ideas on what we may have done to cause this to happen? Its 4-5 years old and I don't have the model number but it is essentially this one:

The ice maker was factory installed, we did not do it ourselves.
Any help would be appreciated.

Don't know if you damaged it or this is just coincidental but there was a bad run of i/m where this would happen-bail arm sticks in up position. it has to do with the lube they used-frz's mech' so it doesn't drop back down...if this is the case you'd have to take it apart,clean it up,relube with low temp grease or repl I/M..
