LG Icemaker Only Works After Resetting

I am looking for some help with the ice making function on my 2008 LG French Door Refrigerator model number LFX25971SB. First of all, I know this is not a water supply problem or a frozen supply line issue. I think it might be a control board issue and want to know if anyone can help me pin point what is going on.
Here is the story:
Approximately 1 year ago I replaced the original ice maker because the original had lost the cube tray coating and the coating was dropping into the ice bucket. The new ice maker functioned perfectly for about 9 months and then stopped making ice. I could get it to make ice again by resetting the ice maker. It would make ice again for a short time (maybe a day or two) and then stop again. I would reset it and it would make ice again for a short time. I finally got fed up and purchased another ice maker and installed it. It worked flawlessly for about 4 weeks and I am back into the resetting mode again to get ice, but this time It only makes a tray or two and quits. Can anyone tell me what might be going on?
Thanks in advance!!

Look in the tray and see if it has water/ice in it and it just won't harvest.

I'm not really familiar with that LG ice maker but it looks like it's self contained..... no external control board. Some fridges stop the ice maker when the door is open.

Looks like this manual would be a helpful addition to your servicing....
