Simple easy to follow instruction, very easy removal and installation. But for someone without mechanical skill, I dont see it being as easy as it was for me.

The seating end of the auger (where the auger fits into the turning piece at the back of the freezer had sheared from the auger.

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 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.

The repair was very straight forward. However, there's a step that you need to press in two plastic tabs in order to remove an assembly piece. The video on this site demonstrating the entire repair made that step much easier to accomplish, and lowered the risk of breaking some of the plastic pieces. Overall, I'm very happy with how the repair went. This is an easy repair that anyone should be able to accomplish.

I ordered a replacement auger from PartsSelect. I disassembled the ice maker bucket and replaced the auger. The most difficult part was removing the plastic housing around the ice crusher. The parts snap together, so I used a couple of thin screwdriver blades to slip them apart. The repair required disassembling quite a few parts. I had to take careful note of the position of each part and the order in which each was removed.

I watched the video provided by PartSelect.com a few times to familiarize myself with the steps of the auger replacement, which made installation much easier than attempting it blindly. PartSelect saved me $100 based on the price of a new replacement ice bucket!
