after removing screws you have to pry the plastic some to get the cover off. Then remove the cube/crush selector rod. The pull the cursher mechanism up untill it clears the case. Looks like plastic may crack but it doesn't. Remove cir-clip on end of auger, and disassemble mechasnism. Remember the Nut is LEFT HAND THREAD. Disgard old auger and reassemble with new auger.

Followed the Parts Select video on You Tube for replacing the auger. The video was very detailed, accurate and easy to follow. Could pause the video each time I performed a step. Job went really well and the ice maker works great again. Saved about $20 on the auger through Part Select compared to the GE price for the part.

Replaced auger with one purchased here. Hint I will share is this piece will turn very easily, but as soon as it is re-installed in the housing it becomes very hard to turn by hand. I took it apart several times thinking the replacement auger head was too big or too thick or too long, but it was an identical piece to the broken one! It obviously was designed to be difficult to turn by hand. Otherwise the replacement was a breeze!

unusual noise

My refrigerator was making a high pitched kind of howling noise. The PartSelect symptom that was closest was “unusual noise” and when I clicked that it said the evaporator fan motor fixes the symptom 32% of the time. Since my freezer fan speed sounded like it was constantly changing I went ahead and bought one which PartSelect delivered promptly. The installation video was great and although my freezer was not identical to the one in the video, the video was still very helpful. The only thing it didn’t say was how to tell if my freezer motor was the one with the thermistor although I suspect that they all are and that PartSelect is simply trying to save us money by showing us how to splice in a motor without a thermistor. Anyway, since I would have had to disassemble the freezer before buying the part to find out for sure, I just bought the one without the thermistor. This just meant I had to splice the new motor in, just like in the video. I think I would have preferred buying the motor with the thermistor even though it was more expensive. In the end my problem is solved so I’m happy. This is the third time that I’ve had to repair this GE refrigerator and PartSelect has been a valuable resource each time.

i followed a video that was on your site, the video couldn't have been easier to follow it was step by step and very easy to follow, i replaced the evaporator fan motor and everything is working fine, i did notice that the evaporator coil was frozen pretty bad when i removed the back freezer panel i am going to check it again in a couple of weeks to make sure i don't have a defrosting problem as of now everything is fine i am hoping it was just the bad fan motor causing the coil to freeze up because of no air movement over the coil

I followed the video provided by PartSelect, very helpful. I had to cut and splice 4 wires. The repair was successful. The replacement part was an exact duplicate of the original. I still notice the same sound but one tenth the volume. I hope the problem does not return. Many thanks to PartSelect for information to identify the problem and prompt shipping of the repair part.

Followed the video instructions with the help of a young man who worked on trailer hitches before and knew how to splice wires. Beware of splicing the wrong fan motor back into the assembly. . . . That happened here and we had to start the splicing all over again with the correct fan motor.
