Problem: The hardened ice crushing blades had worn the shaft causing them to "lay over" and get stuck.

Remove the ice maker drawer. On the bottom remove two phillips screws to take off the front cover.

The interior white insert in the front has two tabs that hold it in place. Releasing this is the hardest part. I used a small straight screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the sides away from the tabs so that it could be lifted out. This removes the whole ice ejector and auger shaft.

Lift out the shaft, leaving the crusher blades in order.

Slide the new auger shaft into the crusher blades, pop in the back part and reassemble!
