The oiginal ice bucket auger became rusty and discoloered the ice.

I went on line to find the part. Luckily I found PartSelect.com. All I had to do was enter the model number into the search box and scroll through the list of parts.
I ordered the part over the weekend and recieved it on Tuesday!
All I had to do was remove 4 screws from the original Ice Bucket and attach the new one.
Perfect fit in under 15 minutes!
Awesome place to do business with! I hope I never have to do another repair, but if I do I will go to PartSelect first!

Ice bucket shelf broke at screw hole also at back . Metal attachment at back broke free from fan cover.

GE in my opinion made a poor design the ice shelf bracket attached to the metal fan cover after metal tab was bent down that is also where it broke it was riveted to this but the metal broke free
So i purchased a piece of aluminium flat strap cut this about 1" long then riveted this to the shelf bracket and pushed this through the metal fan cover and let rest there and put screw in at other end. Also purchased alum angle also to remake ice shelf when complete then i will use it as ice bucket shelf instead of plastic one.

Replacing filter and auger/ice bucket assembly

After I realized that I needed to take the front and door off the old ice bucket (which involved removing 4 screws) and mount it on the new part (putting in those 4 screws), the job was easy. Installing the new assembly requires shoving it into place without really being able to see how or where it attaches, so I wasn't sure it worked until it produced ice a few hours later, and it did.

The filter on the fridge was more than 10 years old, but the new GE Smart filter and its adapters screwed and snapped into place easily. Subsequent filter changes will be simple - just a snap!

Ice was discolored due to rust on auger

Removed the old assembly from the refrigerator. Used a screwdriver to remove the four screws attaching the old assembly to the plastic front plates. Opened the box holding the new part (which had arrived very promptly at our doorstep), removed it and attached it very easily to the plastic front plates using the same four screws. Placed the new assembly in the refrigerator and started making new ice. It was EASY!! We had read what others had said about this repair and knew it would be something we could do. Your website is very user friendly and helpful.

Ice auger rusting

removed front from old ice bucket and placed on new bucket, very easy. when attempting to place in freezer, would not fit. on furthur inspection noticed the metal rod that sticks out from back and goes into the back of freezer was at an angle different that of the old bucket. there was a hole in the shipping box and figure the metal rod was bent in shipping. would have been a very easy repair but for that. had to call to return the item.

Ice maker crushed all ice and would not make cubes. Pushing the switch and changing to cubes did not work.

Removed old ice bucket with auger. Unscrewed front plates that form the front of the ice bucket. Replaced the front plates on the new part (ice bucket and auger). Replaced new assemblage. It took about 20 minutes. Had to empty ice out and put in a temporary cooler for storage. Bigger problem than the repair was diagnosing what was wrong. Pushed disagnose button and it said ice maker was working normallly. Careful examination of the ice bucket removed from refrigerator showed spring out of place on long metal rod that protrudes from the back of the ice bucket and fits into a square hole in back of refrigerator. Examined other end of rod that engages with plastic parts that run the ice auger and ice crusher mechanism. A piece must have broken off. That was the problem. Refrigerator ice maker now works fine as originally designed. Push crudh the ice crusher engages and you get crused ice. Push cubes and the icemaker crusher slides out of the way and you get cubes.

Rusted auger and broken ice bin door

After bagging the ice in the old bin and rinsing out the new bin, I removed 4 screws that held the old ice bin facing/door frame to the old ice bin and the facing came right off. Then I just screwed the facing on the new ice bin, popped the new door into place, and put the new ice bin back into the freezer. Although web descriptions for the parts I ordered referenced GE and other appliance brands and not Kenmore at all, the search engine led me to these parts and everything fit perfectly.
