The auger has broken the front of the ice bucket chute. I need a new bucket which is available separately, however the unit I have appears to be a sealed unit and I can not figure out how to disassemble the parts so that I can replace only the bucket. Can you help? Do I need to order the entire unit?
ANSWER Hi Tamera. Ice Crusher The ice crusher uses a deflector. When the deflector is UP (“Crushed Ice” is selected on the dispenser control panel), the ice crusher operates. When the deflector panel is DOWN (“Cubed Ice” is selected on the dispenser control panel), the deflector is normally up. 1. Remove the ice dispenser tray and assembly (see page 21). 2. Remove 2 Phillips screws from the ice dispenser cover bottom. 3. Turn over the ice bucket and ice dispenser cover. Remove the Phillips screw. 4. Remove the cover. 5. Remove the Phillips screw for the ice cube control linkage and slide the linkage to the rear of the ice bucket.6. Using a pair of pliers, break the tabs off the back cover. 7. Using 2 flat blade screwdrivers, disengage the locking tabs at either side of the ice crusher (front top) and remove the assembly.8. Slide the back cover off the auger. The back cover must be replaced because of tabs broken off for disassembly. 9. With a flat-head screwdriver, remove the C-clip from the end of the auger. 10. Remove the auger and ice crusher blade assembly. Thank You.
