My husband and I followed the instructional video on how to replace the "direct drive drum". We took note of how everything looked prior to dismantling the ice bin. We made sure we had the proper tools and a large flat surface to work on and started taking out the screws. Replaced the new drive drum part and put it all back together. The whole process took approximately 30 minutes and the ice crusher works great now. I'm a happy camper!!

Well I have to say as a HVAC contractor for 32 years this was a very easy repair for me or anyone who is not a HVAC contractor such as myself. I always like to do a little research on any repairs that I have not performed myself and the instructions and video that was available on this web site was awesome. I did this repair in less them 15 minutes removing parts and reassembly of new part. I did let ice bin sit out for about 10 minutes after I removed ice to de thaw and reach room temperature to keep from cracking frozen plastic parts.The new ice auger drum was a very nice perfect fit and was made of a much better quality plastic then the OEM that was replaced. My mother was very pleased as I did this repair for her at her home and she watched me do the repair and she is 74 years old and she commented that she could have done this repair herself after watching me and she also watched video from this web site after I mentioned it to her. I would highly recommend that if anyone needs parts for there freezer or refrigerator to buy from this web site. The price was much lower then anyplace else I could find and it was shipped to my front door in less then 2 days. I would give this company 5 stars and when I need parts for my refrigerator I will sure stop back here and buy the parts again. Thank You PartSelect and keep up the great job. Ken

I took the tray out of ice maker, removed the screws holding the drum assembly. Dismantling the drum assembly careful as possible and placing the new drum on place of broken one, it still took twice to get it workable. Probably the next time I will follow the instructions a little more closely.

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.

When I ordered the new auger drum from this website, I noticed a video that explained how to install the item. When I received the new drum, I went to the website and found the video. All I did was to watch the video and do what the repairman did. I did get a little confused when I noticed that the auger in the video was metal, and mine was plastic. However, upon removing the pieces as shown in the video, it became clear that the new auger drum would fit the same way the broken one had fit. After that, it was a snap to put the pieces back together.

After figuring out online what I needed I was sent the step by step video on what to do. I have never did anything like this but I learned. In the Past my husband would deal with it but he is no longer alive to do this kind of stuff. Thank goodness you sent the video along with all the instructions as i had my laptop on the table and followed stopped it and followed it again. I actually did this . I am so proud of myself.Thank you for making it so easy.

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.
