I disconnected power. then removed all the shelving, then the cover plate at bottom back. taking the four screws off that held the next piece for the ice maker dispenser and then the cover for the fan and motor. replacing the blue grommets first then reinstalling fan with white set collar, re-securing to bracket and replacing all parts. luckily everything was a nice fit and that made the repairs easy adn fast.

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.

The video showing how to remove and install the auger from my GE ice maker was FABULOUS!!!. I am a 71 year old senior woman, I am proud I fixed this appliance without any help other than the video... The Video is why I purchased from Parts Select.

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.

First thing was to watch the video. This really helped. After that I just followed the lead of the man in the video and completed the repair. Really easy.

icemaker augur had fractured

I followed very carefully the instructions in the video online, and without this there is no way I could have done the repair because a critical step involves removing a plastic cover over the cutter blade compartment, and it is really hard to remove. After trying many approaches, I finally took faith from the video that it would slide out but it required much force. I am unable to understand why anything would be engineered this way, it could have been made much easier and more intuitive. Once that problem was solved, the rest went smoothly. Video was excellent.

Pieces of auger broke off and came down the ice chute.

I followed Parts select video and the only tough part was the plastic tabs were difficult to release. A good tip so that you don't mix up the cutter blades is to slip them on a screw driver as you take them off old auger. I'm a 84 year old widow and I'm proud of myself!

A piece of the plastic Ice Auger broke off and was dispenced with the ice cubes

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.

The ice machine would not dispense ice.

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.)

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
