Kenmore icemaker

Hi All, looking for a sequence of operation for a Kenmore ice maker.
Ref. Mdl. 10658432700,there appears to be a defrost cycle on this maker ,is that true?
Thanks

Never heard of one on an ice maker, there's one for the fridge.
What's it doing wrong?
May want to checkout repairclinic.com.

It appears that the ice maker is in the freezer compartment. When you push the lever for ice, a trap door opens and the ice falls into your glass. Yes, the freezer does have a defrost cycle.
Usually the ice maker calls for water. When it is full, it shuts the water off and the ice freezes. It then ejects the cubes into a holding hopper. For crushed ice, it crushes the cubes before dropping them through the trap door.
My fridge does not have a dispenser and after several weeks of defrost cycles it builds an iceberg in the hopper.

The freezer temp can go from, zero or less to 15-20 degrees F during the cycle and actually warmer in isolated areas.
