Replace the part, inspect the rest of the machine to see if it's actually in good enough condition to run, verify that the power supplied to the machine is correct, then give it a test run. Otherwise, if there's power at the disconnect but it was turned off, or if the machine was un-plugged, ask the owner why. If the machine was disconnected because it just wasn't running right, the next step of this ice maker troubleshooting call will be to open the panels up and do a quick, thorough visual inspection.
