I had already removed the ice container & realized the very end of the auger (drum) was broken. I still don't know why this part is plastic. I ordered the auger drum on Monday & received the part Wednesday morning by Fedex. I then retrieved your repair video by Steve on-line and paused it as I duplicated each step. The process was really very easy (I even surprised myself). The unit now works as it did when new. To think I went for over a month and the repair was so simple and inexpensive. Thanks also to your customer service rep who put my mind at ease that this was the correct part (My auger was totally plastic & different from the one in the illustration). He said if my model number said this part would fit, then it would and it did.

followed video instructions... only thing done differently was to tape crusher blades together before removing from shaft and added a drop of sewing machine oil to all screw sockets before replacing to reduce rusting and create greater ease of removal if further repairs needed

I took the ice bin and crusher down to find the problem. I needed a new auger. I did a Google search for the part and found instructions for taking the crusher mechanism apart. This went smoothly until I went to put it back together. I had to follow the instructions in reverse which was really difficult. I advise folks to use their cell phone camera to take close up pictures of the dismantling process . Use these to help you put it back together. All in all, I was very pleased and plan to return when another need arises. John (retired x 2)

I took ice bin apart to ensure what part I needed. Got Serial # & Model # from inside fridge. Online search for Whirlpool Parts to check out prices. Settled on PartSelect for best price. Quick service too!!! Before putting it all back together, I reviewed the video. It was pretty good. Just left it up & after each couple of steps, I'd look at what was next. Went together with no problem. There could have been more details given, like ensuring that certain things lined up during reassembly. There was dead time when the narrator could have given pointers.

Ice Bin Auger Drum Broke

very simple ! Just follow the instruction video on parts select . It don't get any more simple than that ! Learned a lot just watching that video . I picked up from that how to install an ice maker also . I cant believe I paid a repairman $100 last year to install an ice maker on my refrigerator either . I could have done it myself for 1/3 the cost and still had a brand new ice maker . I asked him about fixing the ice bin then he said they was no way . Said the best thing for me to do was try to find a used one would probably cost me about $100 . I think the total cost for the parts was about $30 here . And BTW takes about 2 min to change out an ice maker . I will never call another repair man to come into my house again unless they do away with the internet .

The evaporator gan motor would work sometimes, but not always, so it took a while to be sure this was the problem. First ruled out thermostat and defrost timer. Also observed build up of ice on coils, so I knew compressor was working. Once I isolated problem to evaporator fan ( by observing stuck once, and seeing how it didn't spin freely) replacement was easy. In fact, since we were able to keep the unit running by watching the old fan and ensuring it was working while waiting for the new one to arrive, I was able to swap them out, plug unit back in and start it up before the ice in the bin even had time to melt! This repair saved me hundreds in repairs, and even more if I had to buy a new fridge, because the new units are too tall for my kitchen space.
