Broken ice bucket auger, cracked crusher cover, chipped auger nut

I watched the "how-to" video on the website and decided that I needed to disassemble the icemaker first (before ordering parts) so that I could make sure I was ordering all the parts necessary for a complete repair. Good thing I did. I didn't notice the cracked cover and chipped nut until I had the icemaker all apart. I then ordered the necessary parts. When they arrived 2 days later, I set up a table near my computer so I could re-assemble the unit as I watched the repair video...pausing the video as necessary. It all went without a hitch and worked perfectly when re-installed in the freezer. **Note: I left the old parts out of the ice bucket while I was waiting for the new ones to arrive...taped up the gaping holes in the ice bucket with blue painter's masking tape and re-installed the bucket in the freezer with the icemaker on...so I could still manually retrieve ice out of the bucket. I left the switch on the front of the freezer door in the "water" position to remind me that I couldn't dispense ice. Water dispensing worked fine. The video is the key. Impossible to make a mistake if you pay attention.

Blade broke off auger

It was more involved than I thought. I didn't have the proper tool for removing the snap washers but a screw driver and pliers did the trick with no damage. I think this is the first time I repaired something right the first time.

Lack of a schematic form part-select

I followed the isntructions of another fellow who had repaired his ice maker, but made the mistake of taking the ice crushers apart before noting where the fixed blades were to be reassembled. Since there was not a schematic with the part I had to go on line to your site and enlarge and use the one there, while accurate, was very hard to read and when I finished, I think it is in the wrong place as I'm not able to get the fineness of crushed ice I had before the repair, but absent a very legible schematic I'm not going to try to fix it further. The auger works, gives us ice cubes and half crushed cubes.
Another tip for future repairers is to to wait for the ice container to warm up or use a hair drier on the part where the tabs need to be depressed to slip off the blade housing. When cold it's extremely brittle, but since I had to leave the job for later at one point and left in on my work bench I found it much more pliable and easy to assemble.
All in all, I'm OK with the part and the result, but wish I could have gotten the fixed blade back into the right spot.

Pieces began to break off the auger and be dispensed

Remove tray assembly and dump ice. Remove two Phillips screws from bottom near front. Disengage latches at top near front, and remove front cover.

There is a long, spring-loaded rod on the bottom, whose position determines whether the ice is cubed or crushed. Remove one Phillips screw and disengage the rod from the crusher assembly. Be careful not to bend the rod, and be sure to reassemble it after the auger has been replaced.

Use pliers to remove nut from front of auger. It has left threads, and no flats for a wrench. Remove snap washer from end of auger with flat screwdriver, and remove large washer. Then you have to disassemble the crusher and phenoodle the auger out of the plastic housing. Be very careful to lay out all the parts, so you can remember how they go back. Also, note how the clear plastic back cover for the crusher is positioned. You can't put it back wrong, but it can confuse you if you don't remember how it was assembled.

Reverse the process to put it all back together. It works just fine.
