Ice Bucket Auger broken

  • Customer: T. from Argyle, TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

Removed all parts to get to the LEFT Hand Thread nylon nut that holds the auger in place. I used a stiff putty knife inserted in the slot of the LEFT Hand Threaded nut to unscrew the nut and then when finished to tighten the nut. Also be careful when removing the plastic covers as they are held in place with plastic catches that can break. I used a thin flat blade screw driver on each side of the covers to gently pry the covers apart. Also note the position and number of the metal fingers and nylon spacers on the auger, a photo of the assembly is helpful.

Read a few of the comments then watched the video. The video is priceless. Doing this lets you know the tools you'll need and any problems you could run into and gives you all the confidence you need to get the job done.

Not a clue on what I was doing. I watched the video this company sent me on how to remove and install the auger. This video came with my email confirming my package was sent. I watched this video as I installed pausing it until my task was completed and it was done in no time.

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.)

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!

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.

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 photographed the setup before beginning, but found myself referring to the video provided for the repair. Excellent instruction, and if it wasn't for the video, I would have gotten the blades mixed up, broken some plastic, you know, the typical mistakes a fumblefinger like me would eventually make. Strongly encourage following the step-by-step video for the repair.

Followed the instructions which walked me through the installation. When I had a question, paused the video instructions and carefully watched the technician and repeated his actions. My results were the same. Amazed how simple after watching the video completely before starting repair. His tip to let sit (and warm up) was vital. Letting the plastic become pliable before attempting to disassemble is critical. Again, watch the video first, pause & replay when you have a question and take you time. You can do it if I can.
