Ice buckey auger was broken

  • Customer: Steven from Ridge Manor FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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!

I watched the video associated with the auger replacement (I'm very glad there was one!) and managed to get it done. It's a "tricky" fix but the video helped quite a bit.

I went on google search looking for the part. Second search was your website and the price of the part was good. Scrolling down the page I noted a video on how to install the auger it sure was well done step by step, heck I can do this so I ordered the part. I live in a rural area and received the part in 2 days (what great service). I set my computer next to the ice tray started the video and went to work. GREAT instruction easy to follow once the part was out the instructions went part by part on reassembly.The person doing the video did a super job of explaining each step. You will have a happy customer forever.

Need an additional part to complete the job as the new auger is held to the ice crushing blades by a coupling. The new auger screws onto the blades. So I need a new ice crushing blade assembly. To complete the job.

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!

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.)

As per the video with one exception. That part of the shaft between the start of the plastic and the flattened portion that accommodates the cutters was longer that the original. Required an additional washer approximately 1/16 of an inch in thickness to take up the slack of the cutter assembly.

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.

  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I found out that the tabs that hold the ext. had broken or worn off. I decided to pull the front panel off and remove the filler spout assy. I just glued the new funnel ext. onto the funnel, and caulker the panel,and hopefully I will never need to replace it again. It will be a little more difficult to get it off now. Also, the instructions were so small I had to read it with a magnifying glass.

My fridge starting getting warm inside so I took the back panel of the freezer off and seen the coils being completely frozen. I thawed it with hair dryer and took out both the heater element and thermostat off and performed an ohm test with multimeter. Heater seeme good with 23 ohm resistance but thermostat had no current flow through it. After replacing the thermostat the fridge works like new. I replaced the heater as well even though it seemed okay for peace of mind.
