Well first of all could you tell the one responsible for the online video that I love them. Without the video I'm sure I would have needed more than just a new auger once I got finished with it. Not to mention being in trouble with my wife for destroying the entire ice box. The video showed exactly what I needed to do down to the smallest detail such as the reverse threads on one of the nuts. I'm confident I would have destroyed it had I not been made aware of that small detail. Everything went well and I was just wondering whenever I have additional problems with my home would you be willing to take special requests and prepare a video for me to use as well.

Remove broken ice cube auger and replace

  • Customer: T. J. from Temple TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench(Adjustable)

Used the video instructions. The hardest part, as described by others, was releasing the two plastic tabs on the white cover. I had to call on my wife for help, since it was nearly impossible to juggle two screwdrivers and the cover. The caution about the reverse thread on the nut was very helpful. It would be nice if the plastic blades on the auger were metal. Thanks for the fast delivery of the part. Ted

icemaker augur had fractured

  • Customer: John from Cape Coral FL
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers

I followed very carefully the instructions in the video online, and without this there is no way I could have done the repair because a critical step involves removing a plastic cover over the cutter blade compartment, and it is really hard to remove. After trying many approaches, I finally took faith from the video that it would slide out but it required much force. I am unable to understand why anything would be engineered this way, it could have been made much easier and more intuitive. Once that problem was solved, the rest went smoothly. Video was excellent.

The repair went fairly easy, the only problem was the tabs on the side were difficult to release. That is what the putty knife is for. The repair video was extremely helpful. What I was most impressed was the speed in which the part was delivered. I ordered it about 3-4 in the evening, It was here about 11:00AM the next day. So in less that 24 Hrs. I had the part and the repair was made. I will Always PartSelect for my appliance repairs. Kenneth J. Wells

The repair might have gone more smoothly had I received the correct parts. Evaporator fan grommets were ordered, light bulbs were received... Changing the water valve went smoothly and was quite easy.

Ice would not come out of the slot

There were pieces of plastic in the tray so figured it had to be the dispenser crusher. Removed it from the ice maker using two knives which was the hard part. Ordered the dispenser crusher which was not the part I needed. Then ordered the dispenser crusher cover. Putting it back together was easy after watching the video online. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver. if you do this repair do not remove the auger from the dispenser crusher. Remove them together.

The icemaker was not dispensing ice.

  • Customer: Sherryl from Farmington AR
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The dispense cover was cracked and would not allow the blades to circulate, so it would not dispense ice. There was an excellent video on this page that explained how to remove it and replace it. The main trick is to be sure that the ice bin is left out so it will warm and make it easier to remove the parts.

Crusher Cover cracked

  • Customer: Holly from Norman OK
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

I followed the video. Everything was extremely easy, but I am 74 years old, have never repaired anything, and have arthritis in my hands. When I got to the step where I had to push in on the tabs, I couldn't do it. I had a friend push in while I pushed up...voila! But it took two of us. I also had a little trouble putting the spring back as it had been a few days since I had removed it. For us beginners, Steve, close-ups of things would be useful. I LOVE this site, however, and will use it again. You saved me over a hundred dollars! (I know because this lousy part has broken twice before.) Now that I know its name, I will not be crushing ice anymore.

Pieces of plastic shards dispensed with ice

Followed the video provided by PartSelect. It was very helpful. The most difficult step was removing the ice crusher unit. The instructions say to use the putty knife to depress the tabs while pressing on the bottom of the crusher to release it. The tabs are much tighter than indicated, and there is no easy place on the bottom of the crusher to apply pressure. Even though the unit was thoroughly thawed, there was still slight cracking of the plastic housing. Really needed a second set of hands. Once the crusher is released, replacing the crusher cover was literally a snap and now the entire unit works like new. Saved me a couple of hundred bucks.
