The plastic blades on the auger were broke

  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I watched the video online that related to the parts that I needed to repair. I used a putty knife to insert between the sides of the housing unit to be able to remove it. That was probably the most difficult step. The auger came right out and I was able to replace it with the new one. Of course, reassembly was much easier.

Ice Maker Auger Blade broken

Replaced the broken auger. I followed the instructions post on the Partselect.com webpage for the replacement auger. The most difficult part was removing the ice crusher housing becuase I was afraid of breaking the housing while prying the tabs away from the side of the ice bucket. Otgherwise it was a 10 minute job. Thanks PartSelect.

The repair was quite easy. The installation video on your web site was a lifesaver. Without your video the installation would have been far more difficult.If you are doing this repair watch the video,it will save you a lot of time and potential problems.

Cracked ice auger/no water dispensed

  • Customer: Elizabeth A from Henderson NV
  • Difficulty: Easy

Watched the video and worked next to the laptop to pause it at every step. Ordered a new plastic locking nut with the auger. Good thing, because the old one cracked when the e-ring was pried off. Put the new auger in and returned the bucket to the freezer. Changed the water filter. Like magic the water dispenser worked again! Made sure the spring-arm moved after cubes were in the bucket. It was stiff. Popped it a few times to make sure the lever worked OK. After the bucket filled checked both ice functions. Cubes dropped right away, crusher worked after a couple tries. Releasing the plastic tabs was the hardest part. WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO, THEN FOLLOW THE STEPS IN ORDER. The ice and water are flowing again! Many thanks for a great how-to video!

Auger plastic broken

I am an 80-year old female, and though I do minor repairs around the house, this is the first on a refrigerator part. The instruction film was most helpful. I had a lot of trouble getting the hard plastic section out of the front. It took me 3 hours, and all was working well, but the last few days, the ice comes out mostly crushed, rather than cubed. I also have a problem of overfill in the ice cube trays, causing the drippings to freeze, inhibiting the auger. Any suggestions?

bad design from GE auger not strong enough

Removed three phillips head screws, I used a butter knife vice a flat head screw driver to slip between the housing and turn unit, the knife is thinner. Left hand threads on the holding nut turn off. Take off turning fingers, place in order. To ensure the problem does not happen again do not buy any more G E products. This is the fourth time I had to fix this problem in three years. The whole ice making system is poorly designed.

Broken auger and broken deflector

  • Customer: George from Talladega AL

Pull ice tray out, empty it, let it warm up. Unscrew two top screws, manipulate with ease on the separator (no screws attached there), pull separator out upwards and at the same time, pull out auger with ease. Pry lock washer off on auger, separate piece by piece in order. With new auger in place, reverse in order to put all back in together, finally place lock washer in groove and snap it to lock. The deflector pin was pulled out with pliers. With new deflector in place, push pin back in with pliers, too. Ease auger back into the separator and slide down the separator with ease. Screw two screws back on.
