1. Slide out that big box with all the ice in it
2. Remove two screws (phillips tipped)under white plastic cover,pull off the cover
3. Press the two plastic tabs in, to release white box thingy
4. Pull the box out, long plastic ice screwer and all
5. Notice how the stainless blades go back in before removing
6. This up to you, but at this point I took a break
7. Note: the auger nut is a left hand thread, it took me a while to figure that out (Porter?)
8. Screw on the new auger nut, I used a putty knife to span the screwdriver like slot, slide your new crusher cover on, slide assembly back into place, install snap ring
9. reassemble
10. Realize the real problem is the solenoid for the rubber flapper that is stuck open allowing the ice to frost and freeze and break the parts I just replaced
11. to be continued ():
