Watched the video I found at PartSelect when I ordered the part. Let the ice bucket warm to room temp and disassebled as the video suggested and reassembled with the new part. Knew there would be several parts to the ice crusher and important to get back in order because of the video.

I followed the instructions on the youtube video supplied with the shipping confirmation email. At 3:06 on the video, the repairman states, "next we have to depress a tab on each side at the top". This comment leads you to believe the tabs actually "depress". They do NOT! The tabs on my ice bucket are solid protrusions on the side of the front assembly. You must work the sides of the ice bucket away from them without bracking the bucket. "It's fairly snug in there" is a gross understatement!! Once I managed to remove the assembly, without breaking anything, the rest of the disassembly and reassembly was a breeze.

Followed the on line video. It was a piece of cake. Have also replaced a defrost heater using their video (at a different time). Also excellent. The new part came in a factory sealed bag. undamaged. Followed the very well done video on changing the auger...2hrs later was having a bourbon on the rocks. Thumbs Up.

Tried to remove plastic nut used as a bearing as a right hand thread. I put part in hot water and was still unable to remove nut and finally checked the new part and found out that part was left hand thread. It would be very helpful to have some brief installion instructions

My husband and I teamed up and completed the project and it works! I was continually wincing - worried that he was gonna force some other piece to break. A video that we watched made it look easier than what we experienced. I don't think I could have done it alone - he had to exercise restraint and I added attention to detail - you have to think it through and focus. We actually found that the crusher piece had a crack - we super-glued it - undoubtedly, it will not hold but we don't use the crusher that much anyway. That repair can wait...

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

  • Customer: Michael from Milton FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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.
