Why is the ice maker only filling half of the ice maker with water?

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator number 106.57022600, it's almost 3 years old. Recently, the ice maker stopped working correctly. Now it is only making a few cubes a cycle. It is taking about 5 days to fill up the ice cube bin, completely, with ice. Any suggestions?

It could be a problem with the ice maker or the water valve. A way to check this would be to cycle the ice maker and check the fill portion and the end of the cycle. To cycle this ice maker, there are some test terminals on the ice maker module. I'm sending you a picture of the test terminals. Using a well insulated jumper, place it between T-H on the module. Be careful this is a hot (live) check. A few seconds after the ice maker starts to cycle remove the jumper. Toward the end of the cycle as soon as you notice it filling, time it to see how long it lasts. The normal fill time for this ice maker is 7.5 seconds and the normal fill is 4.5 ounces. If you get 7.5 seconds but only 2 or 3 ounces, the water valve is defective. If it only fills for 4 or 5 seconds the ice maker is defective. If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
