Part of the plastic had broken off

  • Customer: Annette R from Round Rock TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

My husband and I teamed up and completed the project and it works! I was continually wincing - worried that he was gonna force some other piece to break. A video that we watched made it look easier than what we experienced. I don't think I could have done it alone - he had to exercise restraint and I added attention to detail - you have to think it through and focus. We actually found that the crusher piece had a crack - we super-glued it - undoubtedly, it will not hold but we don't use the crusher that much anyway. That repair can wait...

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

  • Customer: Alex from Fort Worth TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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 %.

Auger plastic broken

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

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

  • Customer: Michael from Milton FL
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

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.

I went to internet and reserched this site and put the model number in serch. Great site for instructions. I looked for the double valve and a union connector. Did not know what they looked like so I searched the detailed parts of the back of the ref. Looked at the video on how to install parts very easy. I ordered the parts. They came really fast within two days in the mail. The video told you what tools you would need to do the job. Pulled the ref out, set on the floor, undid the 6 or 7 screws from back panel and followed the instructions from video. The part itself had only 1 screw to remove. I'm 64 female and it was really easy and I now have water.

Adding a small amount of water to the filter would resolve the problem for a week or two. So, I thought this was an issue with the filter and decided to try the bypass cap to help zero in on the problem. The bypass cap had no instructions concerning the need for O ring so it was trial and error. The O ring was not needed. After installation of the bypass cap, no water flow resulted and I had to replace the filter. Intermittent problem continues.
