When activated, the auger rotates and pushes ice out of the bin through the chute to the user.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
I had to completely disassemble the ice bucket (dispenser) to gain access to the parts that were being replaced.*It was helpful to have the exploded parts diagram to aide in reassembling the ice dispenser when replacing the parts.

The OEM auger pitted and rusted. My ice was coming out brown. I had cleaned it before, but in no time is was back to 'spiced' ice cubes. I cleaned the entire ice bucket and disassembled, ordered the part and re-assembled. Now the disassembly was a different day than the assembly. It's a good thing the parts diagram was on the web, I am no Thomas Edison when putting things back together. It is pretty general though. I sand blasted the tin cover and re-painted before buying a new one. That had rusted too. Before that expense, I thought I would try it. Be careful of the bucket as it can crack. I am not sure when mine was cracked, but I noticed it this time. If you are contemplating the purchase of a new auger - don't. The new one is stainless and the old steel and chrome is a joke. The inside of the freezer where the bracket spins the auger is rusty too and the old auger will rust again in no time. Buy a new one for under $50 shipped to your door. Another note, be sure to remember what screws came from what hole. It will eliminate the guess work when assembling. Also, the spring on the arm that controls the crushed ice function, note the position before tearing apart.
It's a good idea to take closeup pictures, that will eliminate guessing when you put it back together. There was no instructions. I was happy to see GE knew there was a problem with the chrome auger. The replacement is STAINLESS STEEL.
I carefully removed the screws and laid aside in order. Taking off the ice grinders was the trickiest part, but I had read before to make sure to keep them in order. Replaced two new parts and reassembled. Pretty simple, but just keep track of where each part goes.
removed old auger; replaced it with a stainless steel auger
Removed the screws holding the faceplate. Then couldn't change out the auger so needed to remove all of the other screws in the unit and fully disassemble the icemaker unit. Should have marked the parts as I took them apart as I needed to find a parts diagram on-line to reassemble. Not sure that I put them back together right as the unit will not dispense whole ice cubes as it did previously.
I never realized there were so many parts. I carefully took the Ice Bucket and Ice Crushing Assembly apart and laid all items in order, but once it went back together, I fear I did something out of order. Although the ice is now rust free, the ice moving assembly and crusher makes too much noise. I will be required to take it all apart and figure out which part I put together in the wrong order. I could use a diagram that gives the correct blade and spacer order...
