Circa 2001 SZ 650 u/l. No ice, Ice Service indicator flashing. Ice Maker switch activates audible relay. Where do I begn my journey?

There is a switch near the ice bin that must be closed (physically and electrically) for the i/m to work, see if it has power coming into it and going out of it. There could be two different types of i/m in there so there would be two ways to force them to cycle. Post a pic if you can or pop the front cover of the i/m off and tell us what you see.
Is the unit holding the set temps?

Arghhhhhhhhh..... Stop scaring me!
Yes, everything is clean. Twice a year it gets vacuumed with my trusty shop vac. Cleanliness = lower energy costs and longer life. I was up top 2 nights back and don't recall seeing/hearing the fans running but I will double check this tonight.
I've seen a couple of mentions about switches near the im but haven't seen them. This is an upper lower 650. Any ideas for the location of said switches?
The entire unit holds set temps with no problem. I will try the power down/power up to see if the light resets and I will let you know the results
Should I remove the freezer door in order to get best access to the im? If so, any hints/warnings to follow? I will photo and post pics today/tomorrow.
Is there a service manual available on-line or as a pdf?
Thanks for everything.

PM your email address and I'll be happy to send you a very vague, general service manual.

So I cycled the unit off and on. The flashing im service alert goes away and about 20 minutes later the im drops a load. We go out for dinner and this morning the ice bin is pretty full (2/3). I've emptied the ice bin and will see if it makes more.

So 24 hours later it is still making ice with no problems. Hmmmm...
