The temperature in the refreezer and refrigerator was slowly getting warmer although the condensor motor was running continually.

Unplug the refrigerator and remove frozen food, shelving, light and back panel inside the freezer section to expose the cooling coils. The coils were completely iced over. Using a wet dry vacuum to discharge the air toward the coils quickly melted the ice. The trouble shooting section on your website described my problem and I bought both items which were the most common problem. Using the video(s) e-mailed to me when purchasing the parts provided great information regarding details for the repair. After replacing both parts the refrigerator is working great having spent just under $25.00.

The repair was extremely easy because PartSelect.com had a video on how to repair this item. I set up my ipad and played the video step by step. The gentleman, who was explaining how to replace the part, was outstanding! He did not miss one step which made my repair very easy. It took less than 30 minutes from getting my tools, replacing the part, re-installing the ice bin, and clean up. The only prep work was, in the morning, I removed the ice bin so it could be room temperature, just like the video said. (I saved the ice so my family could have ice throughout the day.)

I followed the instructions under "Plastic auger blades broke in ice tray". The only difficulty was getting the part 325 to release from part 352. Had to do some careful prying with small flat screwdrivers to make the release.

Not a clue on what I was doing. I watched the video this company sent me on how to remove and install the auger. This video came with my email confirming my package was sent. I watched this video as I installed pausing it until my task was completed and it was done in no time.

I photographed the setup before beginning, but found myself referring to the video provided for the repair. Excellent instruction, and if it wasn't for the video, I would have gotten the blades mixed up, broken some plastic, you know, the typical mistakes a fumblefinger like me would eventually make. Strongly encourage following the step-by-step video for the repair.

I went online and found a u-tube video for replacing an auger in an ice dispenser. It matched everything I needed and the process also included replacement of the cover as part of the instructions.. The hard part was removing the cover.. I ended up sliding two table knives in between the outer casing of the ice maker and the inside cover to compress the tabs on both sides.. trying the putty knife (as instructed) I could not get the tab to stay released as I shifted from on side to the other.. each time the other side would slide back in and lock.. the table knives worked nicely.. held the tabs out of the way while I pulled the cover off.. My husband was thrilled I accomplished this.. He's not mechanical at all.. I've been bragging about saving us a bunch of money as well.

Ice bin auger broke near discharge end. Not dispensing ice very well.

Viewed the video associated with the part before it arrived. Really helpful to understand the sequence of disassembly, reassembly, and a few tricks to anticipate. Went just as advertised!

Followed the instructions which walked me through the installation. When I had a question, paused the video instructions and carefully watched the technician and repeated his actions. My results were the same. Amazed how simple after watching the video completely before starting repair. His tip to let sit (and warm up) was vital. Letting the plastic become pliable before attempting to disassemble is critical. Again, watch the video first, pause & replay when you have a question and take you time. You can do it if I can.

Ice bucket auger broke

We called GE - they wanted $150 + shipping to send us another ice bucket with auger. They wanted $51 for the part (plus shipping cdost) for auger alone and you had to have a tech come out & pay labor to replace it. Partselect.com had same auger - cost $33 (including shipping) - and the website had a "how to" video. We got the auger in 2 days - replaced the auger ourselves while watching the video - in 10 minutes. I sent a compliment to the BBB website - Partselect.com is awesome! We will go there always before we order direct from manufacturer to see if we can do the repair ourselves. THANK YOU
