Piece of cake!Removed the old ice bucket which was cracked and ice would not dispense. The Helix Cap also looked worn which is why I ordered both parts. (Probably if not for the shaking of the ice bucket the Helix cap would have been the only part required. We ended up cracking the ice bucket) Removed the four hex screws from the auger system on the old ice bucket with a socket wrench. Removed the old Helix end cap from the auger system and replaced with the new. Literally just slips on the auger. Reinstalled auger system back onto the new ice bucket. Total time not even five minutes. Working great! Probably saved $ 75.00 - $ 100.00 on a service call. Half of a wrench on skill level needed (One=Low skill level/ Five=High skill level)Great response & delivery from Parts Select!Definitely recommend highly.ToddLancaster-PA

First, I removed the ice bucket and crusher assembly and emptied the ice into a tupperware container.Next, I removed the face plate by carefully pressing the bottom of the ice bucket and releasing the tabs on the face plate.Using a 1/4" nutdriver, I removed the two screws near the bottom of the ice crusher and auger assembly which holds it to the ice bucket.As long as the auger was off, I decided to replace the end cap to see if that would solve the jamming problem. It takes a little finesse to figure out how to twist the cap so it can be removed, but it is fairly easy once you see how it works. Reassembly is the reverse procedure. When putting the face plate back on, be sure the lip at the top (just below the clear window) laps over the top of the bucket.
With the repair parts ordered and received from PartsSelect.com, I was able to install a new Ice Bucket and the crushed ice agitator assembly. This simple repair has the refrigerator dispencing ice like new.
First I removed the outer shell part then removed the 4 screws holding the ice bin together.After taking the parts out of the old ice bin it was easy to put all the new parts together except the new helix end cap which was a bit tricky to put it in place.It wasn't difficult to reassemble but I would stongly suggest taking notice how everything fits together before taking it apart.
Well it was very simple. I just pulled out the ice cube bucket , removed a few screws from the front of the bucket, pulled the front panel off, replaced the helix end cap too the auger, put all of it back together into a new ice bucket, screwed the front panel back on , than lined up the auger to line up with motor shaft of the freezer motor and what do you know I HAD ICE. My family was happy and i did this for under thirty dollars. A repairman would of cost more than three times that just to look at problem and would of cost more for the parts and the second trip to fix it. Thanks you for making it easy to find the part and for the quick delivery of the parts.
One day when i went to get ice our ice maker started to jam. When i took it out i noticed that the metal arm that turns was out of position and blocked due to the End cap being out of place. I then put it back in place and it happened again. The bucket cracked due to the pressure caused by the ice been . The only problem that i have now is that when i hit cubed ice, crushed ice comes out...and when i hit crushed ice, cubed ice comes out. The installation and swapping of parts wasw really easy. Partselect has great breakdown diagrams so if you get lost u can turn to them.
I pulled off the plastic shield from the front of the ice bucket. This exposed the two screws that I needed to remove to disassemble the ice crusher mechanism. Once the screws were removed, I was able to remove the helix and replace the end cap that was broken and place it in the new ice bucket. If I would have known it was this easy, I would have changed this out a year ago, instead of doing without crushed ice through the door for so long. Thanks PartSelect. com! I am a customer for life!
First, I removed the bucket and drained all the ice from it. Then I took the ice bucket out and lifted off the cover of it which exposed the teeth that grind up the ice. I then removed these in succession and placed on my table so I could make sure I put back together appropriately. Once I had the bucket with everything off of it, I replaced and threaded the auger back through it so I could attach the end cap to it. Once that was in place, I put the parts back on the way I took them off. It really was a painless process and saved a ton of money versus calling a repair person. Definitely will use the service again. Very prompt delivery as had the parts 2-3 days after ordered. Well done.
Removed ice container, replaced end cap that holds Auger shaft that connects to shaft that turns the Auger. End cap plastic nubs wear where it makes contact to the turning stub. Removing a few screws on the front of ice container allows the Auger shaft to slide forward and away from the end cap. Maneuver end cap from shaft, replace using same maneuver and that is it.Pretty easy, even for a novice like me. A $6.00 end cap verses the whole assembly at around $70.00I'm pleased.......
Removed Ice carrier and diassembled the Ice carrier with a socket set. Four screws, cap came right off. Placed the new one on and finished.
I removed the bucket and then took the feed screw out and replaced the end cap and reinstalled the feeder in the new bucket and put it back in place and it worked fine. This is not a hard job, you just have to pay attention to the dismantle so you can get every thing back together properly.the breakdown and parts list was a big help.
!st I called a repair man because the fridge is under warranty. They came out and this part was not under the warranty. I started looking online and found PartSelect.com. They broke down the icemaker into parts and I could see that I did not need the whole icemaker, just the bucket and a cap. I could not believe how simple the problem was. Took just minutes to fix and now I can get ice from my door again! I got the parts quick and I got what I ordered. I highly recommend PartsSelect.com!
remove the tray from the freezer. unsnap the front cover from the bin. remove the four screws holding the metal helix and grinder assembly to the bin. slide the metal helix and grinder assembly out. slide the new end cap onto the end of the helix. (this is the only tricky part and takes some patience. The stub end of the helix has to slide into the hole in the end cap. You can't bend the helix, just work the end cap around until it slides over the helix end stub). Reassemble the grinder and helix to the bin, snap the cover on and slide back into the freezer.
