Ice maker will not eject ice
Reference: Whirlpool side by side refrigerator model gs5shaxnloo
installed new ice maker after old one stopped working.
New ice maker filled with water within 20 minutes, froze and kicked out the first ice cubes (8) within 2 hours. Ice maker filled with water again within minutes but failed to push ice out after over 36 hours. Removed ice maker and removed ice, replaced in refrigerator, ice maker filled within 20 minutes but again failed to eject the ice after 48 hours. Repeated the process again with successful fill and freeze but no ice dump after another 48 hours.
I welcome your suggestions.

new icemaker has a defective thermostat, send it back or take it back to wherever you got it

We had this problem two or three times with our new fridge and then it cleared up by itself. Very strange. . .

seems the heater in the ice tray is not working and not allowing the ice to fall out
