I watched the video from PartSelect.com. Made all the difference in the world. I had to refer back to it a couple of times for the spacer cutter placement. I probably would have had a real time trying to figure this out without the video or some sort of instructions.

I did the repair per the video;pausing the video as I went along. I hit some snags which I refer as stop points, which may result in buying the entire assembly instead. I trudged through having to back track and disassemble 2 times. I made it through to a functioning unit. I am sure I would do better in the future. Overall, a good and sucessful experience.

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.

I followed the PartSelect repair video to replace the ice bucket auger and it was the greatest thing I've ever seen. There's no telling how long this repair would have taken if the video had not walked me through the perfect steps to fix the problem. The video was clear and concise and perfect! It was as if I had the repairman in my kitchen holding my hand step by step as I replaced the part. The video made simple what would have been a complicated and arduous task had I tried to figure it out on my own. The repair video is the only thing you'll need to perform this repair (as well as a couple of screw drivers, chanel locks, and a putty knife)!

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

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

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.

I followed the instructions on the youtube video supplied with the shipping confirmation email. At 3:06 on the video, the repairman states, "next we have to depress a tab on each side at the top". This comment leads you to believe the tabs actually "depress". They do NOT! The tabs on my ice bucket are solid protrusions on the side of the front assembly. You must work the sides of the ice bucket away from them without bracking the bucket. "It's fairly snug in there" is a gross understatement!! Once I managed to remove the assembly, without breaking anything, the rest of the disassembly and reassembly was a breeze.

Followed the on line video. It was a piece of cake. Have also replaced a defrost heater using their video (at a different time). Also excellent. The new part came in a factory sealed bag. undamaged. Followed the very well done video on changing the auger...2hrs later was having a bourbon on the rocks. Thumbs Up.
