I USED THE ON LINE REPAIR VIDEO AND EXCEPT FOR OVER LOOKING ONE OF THE PROCEDURES ON PUTIING THE PARTS BACK TOGETHER IN ORDER. THE REPAIR WAS RELATIVELY EASY FOR ONE WHO HAD NEVER ATTEMPTED SUCH AN REPAIR. I HAVE VIEWED SEVERAL ADDITIONAL REPAIR VIDEOS OF YOUR COMPANY AND FEEL CONFIDENT THAT OF THOSE VIEWED I COULD EASILY REPAIR MY REFRIGERATOR'S PARTS THAT MAY QUIT WORKING. PLEASE CONTINUE TO POST THESE EASY TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS?

Took the ice bucket out and had to disassemble it completely to get the old auger end out of the grinding blades at the front of the ice dispenser. That part was kind of tricky because I was just using pliers to hold the blades while I got the lock washer off the plastic threaded piece that the auger screws into. Make sure you keep those blades in the precise order they come off, along with the plastic bushings that go in between some of them. Once I got the old auger free of the plastic end piece it went pretty quickly from there. I could never get the new auger to screw cleanly into that plastic end piece. It kept cross-threading so I just shoved it back on and it seemed to be snug enough. I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it is doing great.

I did the repair per the video;pausing the video as I went along. I hit some snags which I refer as stop points, which may result in buying the entire assembly instead. I trudged through having to back track and disassemble 2 times. I made it through to a functioning unit. I am sure I would do better in the future. Overall, a good and sucessful experience.

Removed all parts to get to the LEFT Hand Thread nylon nut that holds the auger in place. I used a stiff putty knife inserted in the slot of the LEFT Hand Threaded nut to unscrew the nut and then when finished to tighten the nut. Also be careful when removing the plastic covers as they are held in place with plastic catches that can break. I used a thin flat blade screw driver on each side of the covers to gently pry the covers apart. Also note the position and number of the metal fingers and nylon spacers on the auger, a photo of the assembly is helpful.
