Broken end cap on ice icemaker bin

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.

Ice maker end cap was broken, and water did not come out of the front.

Removed the ice tray took the screws out and installed the end cap, then took the cardboard cover off the back removed two screws unscrewed the water lines and replaced the water inlet valve. Should have done this years ago. What an easy fix. It was real nice to talk to a tech that was able to tell me what was wrong and how to fix the problem. Saved me alot of money!

Ice maker auger wouldn't turn

I removed the ice tray and removed the front plastic cover that simply snapped off. I removed 4 hex screws with 1/4" nut driver. Then pulled the auger forward. This allowed me to slide the end cap into place. I put the auger in place and retightened the 4 hex screws, snapped on the plastic cover it worked fine
