OK so after thawing it out and jumping the thermostat. It only made on tray of ice and then stopped again. I thawed the unit out overnight and put it back in last night. It has made several trays of ice now and I think the mechanics still had some residual water in it and froze up.

I have removed the ice maker and am letting it thaw out and dry one more time. I will replace the tray and leave the mechanics alone for now. If the new tray doesn't consistently make ice I will start to look elsewhere. Better to spend $35.00, with the hopes of not having to spend the &140.00 for a whole new unit. If I do end up replacing the whole unit I will have a spare tray to put in after a few years wear out the other one!  Win - Win.

Thanks again for all the help here!

Replaced the tray a month ago. Ran it through several rounds of ice, and can now say it works perfectly!!! Thanks for all the help. Now on to my Washing Machine (Whirlpool Duet with F35/Suds error).
