Auger broke

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Well first of all could you tell the one responsible for the online video that I love them. Without the video I'm sure I would have needed more than just a new auger once I got finished with it. Not to mention being in trouble with my wife for destroying the entire ice box. The video showed exactly what I needed to do down to the smallest detail such as the reverse threads on one of the nuts. I'm confident I would have destroyed it had I not been made aware of that small detail. Everything went well and I was just wondering whenever I have additional problems with my home would you be willing to take special requests and prepare a video for me to use as well.

Remove broken ice cube auger and replace

  • Customer: T. J. from Temple TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Used the video instructions. The hardest part, as described by others, was releasing the two plastic tabs on the white cover. I had to call on my wife for help, since it was nearly impossible to juggle two screwdrivers and the cover. The caution about the reverse thread on the nut was very helpful. It would be nice if the plastic blades on the auger were metal. Thanks for the fast delivery of the part. Ted

icemaker augur had fractured

  • Customer: John from Cape Coral FL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed very carefully the instructions in the video online, and without this there is no way I could have done the repair because a critical step involves removing a plastic cover over the cutter blade compartment, and it is really hard to remove. After trying many approaches, I finally took faith from the video that it would slide out but it required much force. I am unable to understand why anything would be engineered this way, it could have been made much easier and more intuitive. Once that problem was solved, the rest went smoothly. Video was excellent.

The repair went fairly easy, the only problem was the tabs on the side were difficult to release. That is what the putty knife is for. The repair video was extremely helpful. What I was most impressed was the speed in which the part was delivered. I ordered it about 3-4 in the evening, It was here about 11:00AM the next day. So in less that 24 Hrs. I had the part and the repair was made. I will Always PartSelect for my appliance repairs. Kenneth J. Wells

It required three different efforts to secure the correct part, but once the right one came, it required no more than removing the old bucket and replacing it with the new one, which is now working perfectly.

Adding a small amount of water to the filter would resolve the problem for a week or two. So, I thought this was an issue with the filter and decided to try the bypass cap to help zero in on the problem. The bypass cap had no instructions concerning the need for O ring so it was trial and error. The O ring was not needed. After installation of the bypass cap, no water flow resulted and I had to replace the filter. Intermittent problem continues.

The appliance hinge was the incorrect one.

I drilled a hole and was able to install the new hinge. Moreover, somehow the wrong hinge arrived however I simply drilled another hole. The new hing works fine. I appreciate the quick arrival of the part. Thanks, Stephen. It took about one hour to modify the part.

No water, Ice inlet freezes

  • Customer: Laurie from Fulton NY
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I had a problem with no water flowing and the inlet for the ice maker would freeze. I check the solenoids on the blue valves for resistance and found the water one was open so I replaced the valve. I now had water flowing out the valve and the ice maker did not freeze but I still did not have water. I had to hook a hair dryer up to the water line at the freezer door control panel and let it run for a while then blew it out with compressed air. The water line must have also froze inside the freezer door some place.
