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

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.

I watched the video provided by PartSelect.com a few times to familiarize myself with the steps of the auger replacement, which made installation much easier than attempting it blindly. PartSelect saved me $100 based on the price of a new replacement ice bucket!

Ice bucket auger broke in several pieces

We order a new part from the website. We disposed in the sink all the ice inside the ice bucket and using the screwdriver we take the parts apart. You just have to be very careful about remembering where every part go. A good tip is to place the screw back into his slot temporary so you will know for sure where it goes. My wife helped me holding the parts while I put all the pieces back together. We finished in less than 30 minutes. You can put back some of the ice to check it, but is better to wait until the bucket is full of ice to test it 100 %.

I ordered a replacement auger from PartsSelect. I disassembled the ice maker bucket and replaced the auger. The most difficult part was removing the plastic housing around the ice crusher. The parts snap together, so I used a couple of thin screwdriver blades to slip them apart. The repair required disassembling quite a few parts. I had to take careful note of the position of each part and the order in which each was removed.

Replaced the broken auger. I followed the instructions post on the Partselect.com webpage for the replacement auger. The most difficult part was removing the ice crusher housing becuase I was afraid of breaking the housing while prying the tabs away from the side of the ice bucket. Otgherwise it was a 10 minute job. Thanks PartSelect.

Cracked ice auger/no water dispensed

  • Customer: Elizabeth A from Henderson, NV

Watched the video and worked next to the laptop to pause it at every step. Ordered a new plastic locking nut with the auger. Good thing, because the old one cracked when the e-ring was pried off. Put the new auger in and returned the bucket to the freezer. Changed the water filter. Like magic the water dispenser worked again! Made sure the spring-arm moved after cubes were in the bucket. It was stiff. Popped it a few times to make sure the lever worked OK. After the bucket filled checked both ice functions. Cubes dropped right away, crusher worked after a couple tries. Releasing the plastic tabs was the hardest part. WATCH THE ENTIRE VIDEO, THEN FOLLOW THE STEPS IN ORDER. The ice and water are flowing again! Many thanks for a great how-to video!

The repair was quite easy. The installation video on your web site was a lifesaver. Without your video the installation would have been far more difficult.If you are doing this repair watch the video,it will save you a lot of time and potential problems.
