My Kenmore Elite model #795.72043.112 the ice maker is only making a few cubes of ice and dumping into the tray. There's no kinks in the back of the fridge with the water lines and I did a reset of the ice maker but that still isn't working. Any other ideas are appreciated.

Hi,

So your ice maker isn't filling up all the cube slots to make full batches of ice everytime it dumps?

Did you check the water pressure to your refrigerator to make sure its a good strong flow of pressure to your refrigerator's water inlet valve in the back of the refrigerator?

This model has two water inlet valves.

If your water pressure is good, then you can actually remove the plastic ice maker water line from the back one, and get a bucket or container to catch water in, then test cycle the ice maker and see if you get lots of water pressure coming out of that back water inlet valve directly.

Here's the water inlet valve in the back of your refrigerator:
AJU72992603 Valve Assembly,water


And one in the refrigerator door.

This one is the water inlet valve in your left refrigerator door: Water Inlet Valve AJU74532703

Here's the service manual for your model: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1UnGloN0cKDJHh88U4ypfiQt5XJzHNHw0 Its on page 118 where it says DOOR PARTS.
