Remove the broken part and disconnect the plug for the motor for the ice dispenser. Then I cut a hole large enough to insert the motor prongs in the new part. Made two braces to add strength where I cut and reinstalled the motor . I was not able to disengage the prongs and didn't want to brake it. Works fine. The part came in one day. Great work Parts Select!!

Located part on your web site with the aid of the drawings. Ordered part received in two days. Read the descriptions of the repair on the web site. This took a few minutes and was well worth the time investment. Do not skip this step. Reverse thread on the auger yoke info was very helpful. Your website is wonderful. Only bad thing my wife said is now she does not get a new refrigerator.
I read all the other repair stories and followed them. The only thing I would add is to use Lock ease on the screws (had trouble with getting two out) and yoke before removing them. I sprayed the lock ease on two screws and the yoke, left it sit for 30 minutes and everything removed smoothly. Especially the yoke that everyone wrote as the most difficult thing to get off.
Removed icebin from refrigerator and placed it in sink. Saw the iced over hole where the motor mount used to be. Removed screw from under shelf with nut driver. Used a hair dryer to melt ice buildup from shelf (don't forget towels to soak up water). Remove the shelf out 6" to unplug harness from back wall. Pull shelf out onto counter to remove all screws. To remove u bracket from motor gently tap bracket with hammer to "break loose" bracket from motor. Put the motor shaft through new shelf hole and attatch screws and u bracket. Put shelf back in and reconnect wire harness to wall. Test the motor by pressing sensor to dispense ice. If all works Finnish reconnecting and put ice bin back in to collect ice. I emptyed my ice bin prior to putting back in.
unscrewed all the electric componets from the broken enclosure and screwed them to the new one and reenstalled. we got the new enclosure faster than expected will probably use part select again when needed.
Having a diagram really made the job easy. The best surprise was ordering the part on Monday and having it my doorstep on Wednesday. The last time I had a repairman work on the same refrigerator it took two weeks for him to get a part. Who needs the Maytag repairman with service like this.
I read the blogs and followed other people's experiences. It was easy and everything is back to working order. I saved a ton over having soemone come out to repair.
1. Remove any screws still holding the switch mechanism or motor in place2. The motor that powers the auger had cracked the plastic and broken free from the enclosure. I removed the screw holding the enclosure from underneath 3. There is a wire harness that supplies power to the motor and the switch. Squeeze the top and bottom of the harness and pull the whole thing out. (You don't need to remove any wires from the motor or switch it should come out in one piece.)4. Getting off the auger bracket takes a little brute force. The tread on it is left hand.5. Remount the motor and the switch, then push the enclosure back in 3/4 of the way and plug-in the harness.6. Don't forget the mount screw underneath the enclosure.
