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.

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.

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 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?

Vanes on ice auger broke

After receiving the replacement auger, I watched the Partselect video on how the repair should proceed. The warning about correct placement of ice crusher blades was helpful. The auger housing was a bit tempermental during disassembly, but finally removed. After watching the video again, the ice crusher blades were installed on the new auger and the assembly put back into place. No parts left over! And it works!

I followed the convenient video, but had some problems with it freezing up. After watching the video and putting it on pause a few times I finally got the thing back together. It is working, but the broken auger wasn't my only problem.I have since ordered a new solenoid to correct the problem of getting crushed ice all the time.I'm awaiting the shipment of the solenoid.

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

Ice buckey auger was broken

The part arrived sooner than I expected. Upon receipt of my new ice auger,
I went back to the website where I made the purchase and found an
installation video. I watched the video then turned off my icemaker,
emptied my ice bucket and went to work. It took me about 20 minutes to
switch the parts out and it works fine! Maybe half an hour total time
including the video. I got a bonus by going to your website. For the last
year I haven't been able to dispense water thru the door. I read your
trouble shooting hints and was pretty sure my water line inside the door
was frozen as everything else worked. I disconnected the water line, shut
down the refrigerator and let the water line thaw out. It's working like a
charm! Thanks guys, great price with lots of helpful info!
