I need to replace the ice auger and I don't see how to do it. The original one is in place but is corroded and ice taste bad. Thus the blade also needs to be replaced. Anything that is metal in that system. How do I do it. Do I really need to buy the hole pack of washers for the blade when I only need one? if you can tell me how to step by step; I will get the parts.
To replace the auger on the unit, there are 2 screws at the bottom of the front plate that you will remove on the bin. Once the screws are removed you will then lift the entire crusher housing and auger out of place. You will have to remove the spring and clip holding the bar that runs front to back in place. Once you have the assembly out, remove the e clip and washer on the housing of the crusher. Remove the screws that hold the housing in place and remove. Turn the nut on the auger that holds the blades in place counter clockwise to remove. When removing the blades pay close attention to how the come off to make sure that they are put back the same way. Remove old auger and install new auger. Reinstall all parts in reverse. The washers only come as a pack.
