Ice Bucket Auger broke

Pulled the Ice Maker tray out, emptied the ice and turned the ice maker off. Then I took the inspection cover off, which was simple but I was trying to remove the Ice Crusher Assembly, I thought I might break the tray assembly if I forced it. I remembered seeing a link for a video link. Took time to watch it, just a few minutes, it made mention that you needed to let the tray warm up or it could crack when you pry the ice crusher assembly out. Once I saw how they removed it, it was a piece of cake. Guys watch the video and it will be a simple fix.

I emptied the ice maker and found the auger had broken. I got the model number, ordered the part (auger) and waited for it to get here. In about three days it arrived. I laid the bin on my workebench, removed screws and took auger out of bin. The assembly requires spreading of the plastic to allow retainer tabs (2) to release. Important**** the nylon nut holding the end on the auger is left hand thread. Assembly was the reverse.

Watched the video I found at PartSelect when I ordered the part. Let the ice bucket warm to room temp and disassebled as the video suggested and reassembled with the new part. Knew there would be several parts to the ice crusher and important to get back in order because of the video.

broken ice bucket auger

I followed the instructions on the youtube video supplied with the shipping confirmation email. At 3:06 on the video, the repairman states, "next we have to depress a tab on each side at the top". This comment leads you to believe the tabs actually "depress". They do NOT! The tabs on my ice bucket are solid protrusions on the side of the front assembly. You must work the sides of the ice bucket away from them without bracking the bucket. "It's fairly snug in there" is a gross understatement!! Once I managed to remove the assembly, without breaking anything, the rest of the disassembly and reassembly was a breeze.

Followed the on line video. It was a piece of cake. Have also replaced a defrost heater using their video (at a different time). Also excellent. The new part came in a factory sealed bag. undamaged. Followed the very well done video on changing the auger...2hrs later was having a bourbon on the rocks. Thumbs Up.

The last coil on the end of my auger had broke off and the ice tray would not feed ice out of the box.

The ice maker tray was removed and the e-clip was removed from the end of the auger shaft,I then released the snap clip retainers and removed al the screws to romove the end of the Ice crusher section on the box.(It is a good idea to run this whole unit under hot water as the plastic could crack if to much force is applied during dissasembly. Plastic can be brittle when very cold). The shaft (auger)was extracted and the plastic retainer nut removed with a channel lock plier. Careful as it has a left hand thread. I was then able to remove the crusher blades and bushings from the end of the auger shaft and reassembled the parts on the new shaft. Refer to the parts catolog blowup view page on the website for proper installation of these parts if you get them mixed up. It is of great help. I then reassembled the auger back into the box and reassembled the other parts and screws to finish assembly. Popped it back into the frezzer and it works perfect. Tools required were nothing more than a thick kitchen towel to hold the Auger down and a flathead screwdriver for the e-clip retainer. A channel lock plier to take of the end nut as it has no flats for a wrench and a phillips screw driver for a couple of screws. Total time was about 20 minutes. I probably saved about $100.00 in doing this myself. Thanks again to PartSelect for getting my paet to me in a couple days.

After removing the ice bin from the freezer turn off the ice maker. Removed the clear ice shield(one screw) from the front top of the ice bin. Turned the ice bin upside down and removed the two screws to release the ice crusher box Then removed the screw holding the ice crusher control rod in place, you will also need to release the spring tention and slide the spring along the rod(not to easy) With the rod released you will need to insert your finger into the ice crusher opening and lift the white plate up to allow the rod to be disconnectedd from its hole in the ice crusher parts. Turn the bin right side up and with two flat screwdrivers pry(on the two short sides) opposite each other, insert the flat ends into the gap between the ice crusher box and lift the bin up and out and remove the ice crusher box and auger out of the bin. Once you have the auger and box out, stand the ice crusher box on end and remove the clear plastic plate up the auger(this is a little tricky and you will have to wiggle it around until you can get it up and off the auger shaft. Once you have the plastic plate off, lay the ice crusher box and auger down on its flat side. Hold the auger so it does not turn and remove the C-clip with a flat screwdriver. Remove the auger from the ice crusher box. Hold the auger to prevent the auger from turning and remove the large white nut(left hand thread)turn clockwise to remove. The ice crusher parts can now be removed from the shaft, it is very importment that they are put back onto the new shaft in the right order. To help you get the order correct, place them down onto the workbench with the white nut at the top of a single column with the last item taken off, being closest to you, in the same order and with the front side facing up. Replace the broken auger and install the parts starting with the part closest to you. Once you have the ice crusher parts back onto the shaft reinstall the auger into the ice crusher box and reinstall the C-clip to hold the assembly into the ice crusher box. Now reassembly the unit in the reverse order.Once you have the auger and ice crusher box into the ice bin and the rod and screws in place, you are ready to reinstall the unit into the freezer. Note how the drive arm is positioned and insure the auger drive end is aligned to fit into the drive arm in the back of the freezer. Turn on the ice maker(green light should come on) and reinstall the bin.

The video showing how to remove and install the auger from my GE ice maker was FABULOUS!!!. I am a 71 year old senior woman, I am proud I fixed this appliance without any help other than the video... The Video is why I purchased from Parts Select.
