Repair was relatively easy. I found several videos on You Tube on repairing or replacing Solenoid & Ice Maker Auger Motor. They weren't broken but those videos show how to replace them and remove ice enclosure, which was the part broken. Only issue was removing yoke off the motor. It has reverse threads and videos had shown holding shaft of motor with needle nose pliers to hold it while you thread off the yoke. You need good needle nose pliers with teeth on them or the shaft will slip in them. I had to go buy new pair while repairing. It's all goes back together perfectly! I took pictures of the assembly, before I removed everything and needed to refer back to them when I was reconnecting the wires.
