I saw the video on the Part select website how to replace the Auger and Auger Nut. I ordered the parts and proceeded with the installation which was relatively simple. The video was extremely helpful. I don't think I would have attempted the repair without it. Also Parts Select reps were extremely professional and made sure the parts were applicable to my model before shipping.

Ice Bucket Auger broke

Pulled the Ice Maker tray out, emptied the ice and turned the ice maker off. Then I took the inspection cover off, which was simple but I was trying to remove the Ice Crusher Assembly, I thought I might break the tray assembly if I forced it. I remembered seeing a link for a video link. Took time to watch it, just a few minutes, it made mention that you needed to let the tray warm up or it could crack when you pry the ice crusher assembly out. Once I saw how they removed it, it was a piece of cake. Guys watch the video and it will be a simple fix.

Tried to remove plastic nut used as a bearing as a right hand thread. I put part in hot water and was still unable to remove nut and finally checked the new part and found out that part was left hand thread. It would be very helpful to have some brief installion instructions

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
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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 %.

Part of the plastic had broken off

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...

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.

Auger plastic broken

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?

Broken auger and broken deflector

  • Customer: George from Talladega AL
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

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.
