After removing the ice bin from the freezer turn off the ice maker. Removed the clear ice shield(one screw) from the front top of the ice bin. Turned the ice bin upside down and removed the two screws to release the ice crusher box Then removed the screw holding the ice crusher control rod in place, you will also need to release the spring tention and slide the spring along the rod(not to easy) With the rod released you will need to insert your finger into the ice crusher opening and lift the white plate up to allow the rod to be disconnectedd from its hole in the ice crusher parts. Turn the bin right side up and with two flat screwdrivers pry(on the two short sides) opposite each other, insert the flat ends into the gap between the ice crusher box and lift the bin up and out and remove the ice crusher box and auger out of the bin. Once you have the auger and box out, stand the ice crusher box on end and remove the clear plastic plate up the auger(this is a little tricky and you will have to wiggle it around until you can get it up and off the auger shaft. Once you have the plastic plate off, lay the ice crusher box and auger down on its flat side. Hold the auger so it does not turn and remove the C-clip with a flat screwdriver. Remove the auger from the ice crusher box. Hold the auger to prevent the auger from turning and remove the large white nut(left hand thread)turn clockwise to remove. The ice crusher parts can now be removed from the shaft, it is very importment that they are put back onto the new shaft in the right order. To help you get the order correct, place them down onto the workbench with the white nut at the top of a single column with the last item taken off, being closest to you, in the same order and with the front side facing up. Replace the broken auger and install the parts starting with the part closest to you. Once you have the ice crusher parts back onto the shaft reinstall the auger into the ice crusher box and reinstall the C-clip to hold the assembly into the ice crusher box. Now reassembly the unit in the reverse order.Once you have the auger and ice crusher box into the ice bin and the rod and screws in place, you are ready to reinstall the unit into the freezer. Note how the drive arm is positioned and insure the auger drive end is aligned to fit into the drive arm in the back of the freezer. Turn on the ice maker(green light should come on) and reinstall the bin.

Auger broke

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

  • 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

Ice Door Not Closing, building up ice in refrigerator

  • Customer: David from Oviedo FL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Disconnected power to unit. Using small Allen wrench unhooked 2 catches in electronic control panel. There are two holes underneath. Push up and pull out on panel as you release the catches. Remove wires. Remove 4 Phillips head screws in plastic panel, then remove panel. Solenoid has 3 screws. I replaced my screws being they were very rusty along with the solenoid. The spring on the door is easily replaced by removing two small screws on each side of the door hinge. There probably was nothing wrong with the old spring but for insurance replaced. Put the unit back together, no more ice buildup and clogging in ice chute through door. Likely saved $100 in labor repair bill by doing myself. Note: There is a few seconds time delay on the door closing. At first I thought I hadn't fixed the problem but then realized a delay in built into the system to avoid the door getting caught on any slow falling ice.
