The ice maker tray was removed and the e-clip was removed from the end of the auger shaft,I then released the snap clip retainers and removed al the screws to romove the end of the Ice crusher section on the box.(It is a good idea to run this whole unit under hot water as the plastic could crack if to much force is applied during dissasembly. Plastic can be brittle when very cold). The shaft (auger)was extracted and the plastic retainer nut removed with a channel lock plier. Careful as it has a left hand thread. I was then able to remove the crusher blades and bushings from the end of the auger shaft and reassembled the parts on the new shaft. Refer to the parts catolog blowup view page on the website for proper installation of these parts if you get them mixed up. It is of great help. I then reassembled the auger back into the box and reassembled the other parts and screws to finish assembly. Popped it back into the frezzer and it works perfect. Tools required were nothing more than a thick kitchen towel to hold the Auger down and a flathead screwdriver for the e-clip retainer. A channel lock plier to take of the end nut as it has no flats for a wrench and a phillips screw driver for a couple of screws. Total time was about 20 minutes. I probably saved about $100.00 in doing this myself. Thanks again to PartSelect for getting my paet to me in a couple days.

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!

After receiving the replacement auger, I watched the Partselect video on how the repair should proceed. The warning about correct placement of ice crusher blades was helpful. The auger housing was a bit tempermental during disassembly, but finally removed. After watching the video again, the ice crusher blades were installed on the new auger and the assembly put back into place. No parts left over! And it works!

I followed the convenient video, but had some problems with it freezing up. After watching the video and putting it on pause a few times I finally got the thing back together. It is working, but the broken auger wasn't my only problem.I have since ordered a new solenoid to correct the problem of getting crushed ice all the time.I'm awaiting the shipment of the solenoid.

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.

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 saw the video on the Part select website how to replace the Auger and Auger Nut. I ordered the parts and proceeded with the installation which was relatively simple. The video was extremely helpful. I don't think I would have attempted the repair without it. Also Parts Select reps were extremely professional and made sure the parts were applicable to my model before shipping.

Pulled the Ice Maker tray out, emptied the ice and turned the ice maker off. Then I took the inspection cover off, which was simple but I was trying to remove the Ice Crusher Assembly, I thought I might break the tray assembly if I forced it. I remembered seeing a link for a video link. Took time to watch it, just a few minutes, it made mention that you needed to let the tray warm up or it could crack when you pry the ice crusher assembly out. Once I saw how they removed it, it was a piece of cake. Guys watch the video and it will be a simple fix.

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.
