In-Door icemaker tray full but can't eject ice

Kenmore Grab-N-Go Model#795.7053 Ice tray is frozen but won't eject. When I turn the ice maker switch off then turn back on I can hear the motor run and see the tray starts to turn and stops as if something in the way stops it. Seems to have happened after I dumped the ice bucket into a cooler .I've removed and replaced the bucket several times to be sure it is seated correctly to no avail. Cold water still runs but maybe not as fast. would a plugged filter cause ice problem? The problem really seems to be something binding the turning of the ice tray. ?????

There will be a button under your LG icemaker. It's a test button. Push it.
The tray should do it's thing and then it should fill with water.
