Our Kenmore 795.76203.901 refrigerator/freezer (fridge on top, freezer on bottom) has an ice maker in the freezer that hasn't been working for some time.  I finally got around to trying to fix it.  I thought the ice maker unit itself might be busted.  Also, I learned that by pushing two buttons on the refrigerator display, you can get an error code if there is one, and there was one for the icemaker.  At any rate, I replaced it, and while replacing it I didn't see or feel any icing up in the water nozzle that pointed down into it.  Didn't work still, though.  Then I replaced the water inlet valve on the back.  Still nothing.  There is water flowing through the water supply tube.  Physically holding that supply tube up against the tube that comes out of the inlet valve, there's enough water and water pressure in the supply system to flow straight through up and into the icemaker.  I checked across the two prongs on the inlet valve and did not get zero resistance.  The little on/off switch on the icemaker is on, and the water supply is on.  That's about the limit of my DIY abilities.  What could I be missing?  Thanks!

Hello,

Assuming the freezer temperature is colder than 10 degrees F .. I would say there is a chance you got a bad icemaker. Not sure where you purchased it but this is the one for your model https://www.thriftyapplianceparts.com/aeq72909602-lg-refrigerator-ice-maker-replacement/
