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.

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!!

Not making ice

  • Customer: Klaus from Valencia CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Ordered part#PS2341899, received in 2 days. Unplugged refrigerator and removed ice cube drawer. Then removed shelf above icemaker. Used 1/4 nutdriver to remove 3 screws holding the icemaker in place. Then unplugged electrical harness from icemaker. To install, just do the reverse and job could be completed within 10 to 15 minutes. It is not necessary to turn water off in back of refrigerator. You should have ice cubes within a couple of hours, however it takes about 24 hours to fill the ice drawer. Probably saved over $150 by doing it myself.

Unplugged it for a day listened to the ice melting on the inside and plug it in again. Decreased the temperature settings and it now seems to work fine. I will save the part in case I ever need it in the future.

On the left side I unscrewed the screw and replace it with a new one .The right side in had to take s file and file of the rivet. You can use a rivet gun or a metal screw to replaced the clip. Once it is finish open the refrigerator door to see how to line the kick plate into the clip. A piece of cake.

I followed the really great repair video on this site. I would not have been able to do it without the video. Thanks very much for the video. Once I had the front panel off, it was relatively easy. Definitely would buy here again and attempt repairs myself. Very good experience! Very happy.

Turn off power. Remove freezer shelves. Remove six screws on the back of the freezer. Slide out metal piece. Pop off plastic fan piece. Remove motor mount by squeezing metal bracket. Take off wires... Do reverse... Attach wires to new motor, install motor (may have to also use the clear rubber piece from the old motor which keeps the motor in place). Push fan blade back on. Screw in metal plate, turn on power. Good videos on YouTube as well.
