Ice crusher/dispenser would run but no ice would come out.

I removed the ice drawer,dumped out the ice and found the front end of the clear plastic auger and the crusher housing cover were broken. To dissassemble the auger system, I removed the phillips head screws that hold the crusher-dispenser onto the drawer, took off the washer and extrernal snap-ring from the auger shaft end. After removing the auger assebly, I pressed in on two plastic catches (on the dispenser housing) and gently pried the dispenser from the drawer with a small flat screwdriver. Then I removed the plastic nut from the end of the auger. Ass'y was much easier once the parts arrived. This repair would probably be too much for the average homeowner.

Brittle plastic pieces crack and break.

Repair was simple; unscrew and unsnap the various pieces, and snap-and-screw it back to together. But what a disappointing design. Between replacing seized solenoids (twice) and plastic parts, this through-the-door dispenser "feature" is a maintenance money pit. Sure glad that PartSelect can provide the parts quickly.

Plastic parts of the auger were appearing in our glasses of water...

I took the ice bucket out and looked at it carefully. The auger was breaking apart little by little. I went on-line to find what part I needed. I came to Part Select and they had a diagram telling exactly what part would solve my problem. I ordered it online and it arrived, nicely packed about four days later. I took out the old ice bucket with the broken auger and replaced it with the new one (which I washed out before installing). It was so easy and I didn't have to pay a repairman to do it. The price was reasonable, too. I have this site bookmarked in case anything else needs to be replaced. It's amazing what you can do yourself!

Icebucket plastic cracked and was spitting plastic through dispenser

Repair was as easy as could be...All I had to do was slide out the old bucket and slide in the new one. The only problem was Partselect initially shipped the wrong bucket/auger unit. Upon being notified of the error, they shipped out a new one and I received it three days later. The quality seems the same as the original part, and the Partselect price was almost 35% less than from the mfg. I would definitely order from them again!

Auger for the ice dispenser would not turn.

I replaced the ice tray with a new one. Could not tell what was broken in the tray, so I just purchased a new one, as the repair man service charge is 60.00 and then you have to pay for the part.

Broken auger nut and crusher cover dispenser

1. Slide out that big box with all the ice in it
2. Remove two screws (phillips tipped)under white plastic cover,pull off the cover
3. Press the two plastic tabs in, to release white box thingy
4. Pull the box out, long plastic ice screwer and all
5. Notice how the stainless blades go back in before removing
6. This up to you, but at this point I took a break
7. Note: the auger nut is a left hand thread, it took me a while to figure that out (Porter?)
8. Screw on the new auger nut, I used a putty knife to span the screwdriver like slot, slide your new crusher cover on, slide assembly back into place, install snap ring
9. reassemble
10. Realize the real problem is the solenoid for the rubber flapper that is stuck open allowing the ice to frost and freeze and break the parts I just replaced
11. to be continued ():
