Ice maker is working very slowly on a Kenmore Elite 795.58823.900 after it was emptied.

Hi there, yesterday we had family for thanksgiving and of course, emptied our ice dispenser. After that, it seems that the ice maker is hardly making any ice to refill the dispenser hopper. One other detail, is that we have R/O water that feeds the ice/water dispenser and yesterday, due to the large number of people, the R/O pressure dropped as well. For anyone who may not know, R/O treats a certain amount of water and stores it in a reservoir, and then dispenses it as needed. So it is possible to deplete the treated water, thereby needing to allow the R/O system to catch up. Anyway, to the original point. After it was emptied, it barely made a few ice cubes, and as of this morning (left it overnight) the hopper is only maybe 20% full. I have emptied it before in coolers and such, and it's recovery time was MUCH faster. I tried calling Sears, but all I get are foreign people who are carrying the company line of trying to sell me an extended service contract, and I'm not entirely sure that's the resolution i need. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
