ON PART NO AP4909160 IS THRE BACK OF IT WHERE THE AUGER GOES INTO THE FRIDG MOTOR . IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE WATERPROOF OR NOT? THANK YOU
ANSWER Hi Abraham. No, since ice cubes only go into the bin(normally) then it is an open area. You have to regulate the ice maker arm so it will be off with a full bin of ice. This way any overfill of ice cannot overflow into the back auger motor /auger assembly. If people use crush and the bin is not cleaned monthly, then the ice chips will collect on the auger and eventually freeze it into place. Then breakage occurs while calling for crush or cubes. The ice bin assembly is part # W10312300. Thank you.
