I followed the PartSelect repair video to replace the ice bucket auger and it was the greatest thing I've ever seen. There's no telling how long this repair would have taken if the video had not walked me through the perfect steps to fix the problem. The video was clear and concise and perfect! It was as if I had the repairman in my kitchen holding my hand step by step as I replaced the part. The video made simple what would have been a complicated and arduous task had I tried to figure it out on my own. The repair video is the only thing you'll need to perform this repair (as well as a couple of screw drivers, chanel locks, and a putty knife)!

The part arrived sooner than I expected. Upon receipt of my new ice auger,
I went back to the website where I made the purchase and found an
installation video. I watched the video then turned off my icemaker,
emptied my ice bucket and went to work. It took me about 20 minutes to
switch the parts out and it works fine! Maybe half an hour total time
including the video. I got a bonus by going to your website. For the last
year I haven't been able to dispense water thru the door. I read your
trouble shooting hints and was pretty sure my water line inside the door
was frozen as everything else worked. I disconnected the water line, shut
down the refrigerator and let the water line thaw out. It's working like a
charm! Thanks guys, great price with lots of helpful info!

I watched the video from PartSelect.com. Made all the difference in the world. I had to refer back to it a couple of times for the spacer cutter placement. I probably would have had a real time trying to figure this out without the video or some sort of instructions.

I watched the video associated with the auger replacement (I'm very glad there was one!) and managed to get it done. It's a "tricky" fix but the video helped quite a bit.

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.

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.
