Replacing Auger in ice maker

I bought this Auger part to replace in my ice maker. I can't figure out out to get the old/broken auger detached. I have it pretty much taken apart, but can't get the broken auger unscrewed from the plastic part. Can't figure how how it is screwed in to unscrew it.

    actually, I've been told that it is an auger (the twirly thing that pushes the ice forward) that goes into the Ice Dispenser. I can't figure out how to get the broken one off the claw type part that crushes the ice.

Kenmore cold spot refrigerator model # 106.56662500 ice is not dispensing through the door. How do I fix it?


This is common in these units. When the dispenser lever is depressed, an auger motor rotates the auger wire. When the auger rotates, it pushes the ice toward the dispenser door and chute. When the auger is defective, it isnt able to push the ice out of the dispenser. You need to check the auger to determine if it is broken or disconnected from the auger motor. If the auger is broken, replace it.

Ice maker does not dispense ice through the door


Hello. I had the same problem. I replaced the auger motor(around$95) 3 times and would only last about a little longer than a year. I bought the 4th one but this time, I wanted to diagnose the issue. So it turns out that the auger motor goes installed with the impeller upwards. What was happening was that if a piece of ice would stay in the dispenser chamber and melt, the water would go into the auger motor eventually causing the auger casing to get full of water and slow it down or short it out. I took the casing apart and noticed that there was a small space between the motor and the casing. I drilled 2 nice sized holes in the dimple of the new motor very gently as to not drill into the impeller motor and installed the auger. To this day, 3 years later, no more having to buy new auger motors. Hope this helps!

UNIT making ice but will not dispense......makes terrible noise......


Sounds like the auger has broken. Look inside the ice maker if possible to see if the blade has detached from the auger bar. Here is a link to all the parts you may need to make the repair.

GE refrigerator model GSS22 WGMD ice maker motor


If you cant manually turn your auger motor, it may be bad. Does it dispense solid ice or no ice at all? Another thing may be your control panel. That could be bad too, it's the one sending juice to both your solenoid and auger motor.
