Very simple repair. Followed the video instructions. Simply removed a few screws and nuthead screws. Removed the cover plates. Removed the old thermostat switch. Removed the plastics tubing over the temp sensor probe. Put the plastic tubing on the new sensor probe, ( rubbing a slight amount of vegetable oil on the probe to allow the tube to slide on easier,). Reinstalled the temp probe. Reinstalled the new switch. Connected the wires to the switch. Reinstalled the cover plates and screws. And the job was complete. Almost took me longer to write this out, than it did to complete the project. Hey, it was an easy fix.

The video provided excellent instructions on how to to this job. The hard part was removing the keeper ring so that the auger assembly could be separted from its housing.

The drum just started breaking apart one day. i thought i'd have to buy the entire auger. But as a result of Parts Select, Irealized i only needed to buy the drum.

Before I ordered, I followed the great video to disassemble the unit. That's when I realized I only needed to buy the drum. Five days later, I had the part. I thought I remembered how to reassemble it, but I ended up needing to watch the video again. It wasn't difficult, but you must get all the bits back in the same order!! Once that was dine, it all went together easily. Thank you! I'm so impressed with this site that I posted on Facebook about it so my friends can also save big bucks doing simple repairs themselves.

Ice Bin Auger Drum was broken

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.

The Ice Bin Auger Drum shatered away from the shaft.

The reason it took me longer than what should have been a 15 minute repair is due to the fact that I could not figure out how the shaft came apart. I found an instructional video on Parts Select website that showed me that the shaft was held together by a reverse treaded, round nylon nut on the very front of the shaft. Just use a pair of pliers to grasp the nut and rotate it clockwise, after that you just need to lay the parts out in order as they come off the shaft so you can put it back together again.

Ice bin auger drum fins broke off from the main shaft,stopping the production of crushed ice.

Replaced the Ice Bin Auger,I ordered from PartSelect,which had much thicker housing and fins than the original .You remove the clip from the end of the shaft and a nylon nut which is a left hand which is opposite threads from most nuts.Its a good idea to take a picture of how the blades and spacers are ,because if not put back in the same direction their will be no crushed ice.It now works better and quiter than when it was new.

Broken plastic direct drive drum for ice-maker

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
