Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
The aluminum casted auger motor casing failed and broke off at one of the screw mounts so I am forced to replace the whole motor. My problem is where the the u-shaped drive auger bracket attaches to the motor drive shaft. It is held on by one of those special speednut clips with the hexnut which GE refers to as the J-nut. I ended up cutting it off with my dremel as I have to replace the motor anyway.
But, how am I going to tighten down the new one as it appears to require a special tool. The hex nut has two notch bump outs machine into it so a standard wrench or socket will not be able to get a clean bit on the nut.
Are special sockets available or any other ideas. If I am forced to call a GE repair person, I've already done half the work at least.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I have a Kenmore Side by Side with the same problem. Sears says the dispenser can not be replaced as a unit. I have to remove the bucket and free the cubes jamed in the dispenser by hand weekly. I've found the same problem listed for Whirlpool Side by Sides. Appears like a design change is needed. T. Macaluso

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.
