I recently noticed our ice dispenser door was not closing all the way. What made me notice it was the ice chute was completely blocked by ice/frost that looked all melted together.

I took apart the dispenser area to find the ice dispenser hinge holder broken. The door was just loosey goosey up in that area.

I'm thinking I need this part from this post: FIXED Broken hinge pin holder on Kenmore Dispenser chute

But I'm not sure since it is a different model number.

The broken hinge (right hinge when looking at the freezer door) is the one circled in red of MemphisJeff's photo post (#5) in that thread (I couldn't figure out how to do a sub-post link).

Yup, you will need to order that kit as well for your model.

I have this same problem. The right hinge is broken. It's the piece connected to the door, not the ice chute. It sounds like this might be a replacement option, but my model is different. It's Kenmore model #106.57362702. Would that same part (Dispenser Door 8201756) fit this model?

That won't do it. There's a plastic hinge on the freezer door that is broken. This only replaces the ice chute parts.

My broken piece is the little plastic hinge on the #1 piece in the diagram (the ice maker diagram, not freezer door). It holds the hinge pin for the ice chute.

That is not coming up as a replaceable parts, keeps saying "Contact customer support for availability at 1-800-252-1698"
Doesn't even have a part#.
Can your old one be glued maybe??

Yes, Jake. It's the same place, which is why I thought that piece would work. I just wasn't sure if it would fit my refrigerator since I have a different model. I was trying to confirm that it would fit before I order the piece.
