When activated, the auger rotates and pushes ice out of the bin through the chute to the user.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
1) Removed the ice bin and emptied the ice.2) Removed 5 screws total3) (hardest part) JImmied a flat blade screwdriver into the left top side of the housing and pried gently to disengage the plastic holding clip. This only allows the left side of the housing to move up about a half-inch. Did the same on the right side and 'walked' the assembly out of the bin.4) Removed the C clip and washer that holds the auger. and removed the auger assembly.5) Before removing the screw at the end of the assembly, it is a good idea to take pictures of the ice crushing part of the assembly so that it goes back on correctly.6) Removed the screw and carefully stacked the ice crush blades and washers.7) Installed the ice crush blades on the new auger, re-installed the screw, washer and C clip.8) Re-assembly is easy, you just need to set the end of the auger in the back of the ice bin and slowly re-install the housing portion.

Dis-assembly only consisted of three screws, but for the not-so mechanically inclined, I would suggest taking a picture of the ice crusher blades before removing them from the auger shaft.
removed the depenser or ice collecter disassyble,replace the new auger and install the collecter tray in freezer.the bulbs i got was for use as i needed,at a later date i have not been able to fine the ice and water depenser bulbs on the open market.
Read your instructions, which were very helpful, and followed them to install. It took a while for me to realize that the threaded cap at the end of the auger was a left-hand thread. Other than that, I had no problems.
Ice maker assembly removed from refrigerator and disassembled. Note nylon nut holding the Augur in place is removed clockwise. As you take the assembly apart, note each piece for reassembly.
Problem: The hardened ice crushing blades had worn the shaft causing them to "lay over" and get stuck.Remove the ice maker drawer. On the bottom remove two phillips screws to take off the front cover.The interior white insert in the front has two tabs that hold it in place. Releasing this is the hardest part. I used a small straight screwdriver to CAREFULLY pry the sides away from the tabs so that it could be lifted out. This removes the whole ice ejector and auger shaft.Lift out the shaft, leaving the crusher blades in order.Slide the new auger shaft into the crusher blades, pop in the back part and reassemble!
I followed the directions provided by Robert of Florida. My contribution is, be aware that the plastic nut on the auger shaft turns to the right to loosen.
I agree with the other posts that suggested taking a picture of the blades and spacers before taking the auger out, makes it so much easier to put it back together in the same way. The only difficult part was holding the two tabs apart while removing the unit, you need a second person to help with this. I used two small screw-drivers to gently pry the clear plastic box away from the white plastic holder, while my helper pulled the holder loose. Keep in mind that the plastic nut that holds the auger in place is a left hand thread. Went back together very easy and it's working great.
I replaced the auger. It took removing 3 screws,pry apart, remove a snap ring. Replace the auger, realine 3 ice crusher blades, put back together, install the 3 screws and it was good to go.
The difficulty was in separating the plastic ice crusher housing from the ice tray so you could get the old auger out. You need three hands. My son had to help hold the tray so I could get those two catches (one on either side of the ice tray) pressed in and unsnapped. I wrapped a small screwdriver with electrical tape and slid it between the two pieces to get them to unlatch. Once this was accomplished, the new auger was easy to install.
removed 4 screws in order to view and remove auger. removed metal and set washer on back of auger. This step not difficult. This will release auger from plastic ice resovoir. Again, not difficult. Remove plastic nut after removing auger. This procedure will release crushed ice blades and 5 plastic washers, 3 flat and 2 raised. You have got to remember order of blades and washer. Again draw diagram take pictures. Very, very important. Put back as taken apart. Good Luck
have had 2 strokes in the last year, I took the Ice Maker apart and lain out the parts. put the new part in and put the balance of the machine together. Iw works great. I might be slow getting it done but I got it done and saved alot of dollars
Studied this problem from online people with the same problem, then found the parts needed from the online manual part list and removed the necessary things out the way and replaced them.
Remove Ice Bin and replaced auger. Auger part was sent right away. Shipped in 3 days. Installed and fixed in less then a hour. Thank You.
Replaced the ice dispenser auger. Removing the auger from the ice drawer is not to bad. Removing the ice crushing teeth at the front of the auger is a little more challenging. Putting the auger in a vise helps simplify the job.
