Default amana ice maker problem

My ice maker is only about a year old but has stopped working automatically. It makes perfect ice cubes but will not eject them. When I insert a jumper between points T and H, the ice maker runs through an ejection cycle perfectly. What is the problem?

Freezer temp too warm ( measure with a thermometer and post the temp here ), bad ice maker would be prime suspects.

Default freezer temp

Freezer temp is 20F. Amana model TZ19RL. Model number on ice maker says RIM.

That would be an issue....freezer temp must get below (min) 15F before the thermostat inside the ice maker will close and the ice maker can start up. Problem appears to be in the refrigerator

Inspect the frost pattern on the evaporator/cooling coils...all coils evenly frosted, 1/2 frosted 1/2 bare, ball of ice, etc.
