This happens to these icemakers - you wonder what the engineers were thinking.....I have done this multiple times. Clean all ice out of the bucket and hook the wire into the round plastic piece at the back of the bucket. Now the fun part - it takes some gyrating and perseverance, but turn the front of the auger and at the same time push the round plastic piece back into the hole that it came out of. It may take a while to see how to best get it lined up to make that final push to get it back into the hole. You can push on it pretty hard - just be careful not to break the bucket.

Out loading auger problems


if by this your saying that the ice dispenser auger has a problem ?

a few things to look at on a ice dispenser
1st remove ice bucket with auger completely out of fridge
look at back of fridge is there a build up of ice there ? if so you may have a leaking water valve for ice maker
carefully inspect the back of ice bucket to see that drive catch is not broken or missing parts
2nd verify that the door to side that contains the dispenser is all the way shut , sometimes ice build up keeps door from closing all the way to allow door switch to say ( door closed safe to dispense ice) this switch is not allways at top or bottom of door but maybe in the middle too
and last but not least , make sure all switches and childlock outs are set correct to working positions and that glass sensors detect the glass in its place

Sub-zero 685, how do you replace the auger in the ice bucket?


Short answer, you don't. They only sell that bucket as an assembly. If it has popped out of place, you can try to force it back into its pivot, but it will come out again eventually. Good luck!

Our subzero freezer has a new problem. The cubes


Ice cubes WILL BE slightly moist when they land in the ice bucket. they've just been slightly melted in order to eject from the ice maker. Stop playing with the settings, for starters. put them back to normal, i.e., middle setting, place thermometer in center of freezer, and if you can, one in center of fresh food. monitor after 24 hours, and for the next three days thereafter. freezer temps should be in the -5 - +5°F, sometimes up to 10°, fresh food should be 35-40, sometimes up to 44°at the normal settings. If you are not having temperature issues, see if you notice any frozen drips of water on the underside of icemaker, indicating a possible crack in the ice maker mold, or a faulty water valve. You didnt include your model and serial number, so not knowing the path of the ice shoot, some go out the freezer door, some slide over and get dispensed from the fresh food side. Its possible you may have a problem instead with the flapping door that opens to allow ice cubes to be dispensed, or similar type mechanism. If this door does not seat completely when its closed, it will leak warm air directly into the ice bucket, which would make them slightly moist, also too, this warm air can cause frost and ice to buildup near the warm air source...look for any unusual forms of ice and or frost leading up from the flapping door to the ice bucket. Also look for any gaps in the door gasket when closed, this warm air leak can also cause similar problems, but its most likely with the ice door. could be the door, the spring, the solenoid, or something else i wouldn't know without personal refrigerator inspection.

What is a replacement part number for the ice maker tray 197D2303?


Hello BeckJeff, I believe that your fridge has the built-in ice maker and water dispenser and as such, only accumulates ice cubes in the ice maker's integral ice bin or as they call it, the ice bucket.

According to the parts list for the PSS26MSR series of refridgerators, the ice bucket and auger are supplied as a complete subassembly.

The part number is WR17X11447 and you can get ordered through any GE appliance dealer or online from several sources of your choice. If you have difficulty getting the part, you can also order it directly from searspartsdirect.com.

The approximate retail price for this should be $165.00 or less, again, depending on where you order it from.

I would suggest you confirm that this is the correct replacement part for your specific fridge model, before you order the part, so you're certain you receive exactly what you are seeking. You can call the folks at sears, toll free, to confirm the part. They can be reached at 1-800-252-1698.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

you have a bad seal, Take a dollar bill and slide it in between the door seal and the frig. slide it up and down to see if if has drag on it. If you find places it dont touch loosen the screws and adjust the hinges till it fits tight. In some cases you might have to tweak the doors if they need it.
