I have Kenmore Elite Fridge with the French doors.

Model number 795.72043.110

Two issues:

1. Ice gets stuck in the door chute and is not dispensed. The ice backs up in the chute, but cannot seem to get past the opening. I am guessing something is wrong with the wiring for the chute opening?

2. The ice maker does not make ice anymore. There are two distinct noises the ice maker now makes. One is a longer noise that can last for 15 seconds and maintains a constant buzzing sound. It sounds like it is trying to do something, but plastic is grinding on plastic. The second noise is louder and shorter with some clicking that that sounds like something keeps getting caught.

In summary, my ice maker used to only not dispense ice, now it won't make any ice at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

Is the ice dispenser door opening to let the ice come out?

If not, You will need the ice dispenser motor.

Here it is for your model you can order:
EAU59551204 Motor,dc


I posted the service manual for your model in post#5 here: FIXED: Kenmore Elite model 795.72373312, ice chute not opening

It will show you how to replace it.:)

For the ice maker problem, your ice maker has gone bad. Check the ice maker connector to make sure its a 6 wire connector.

If the original ice maker has a 6 wire connector, order this one:
AEQ73110205 Ice Maker Assembly


Let us know how it goes.
