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.

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.

I emptied the ice maker and found the auger had broken. I got the model number, ordered the part (auger) and waited for it to get here. In about three days it arrived. I laid the bin on my workebench, removed screws and took auger out of bin. The assembly requires spreading of the plastic to allow retainer tabs (2) to release. Important**** the nylon nut holding the end on the auger is left hand thread. Assembly was the reverse.

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.

broken ice bucket auger

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.

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.
