how to remove Drive Auger Disp part number AP3795799 if i hold the shaft with pliers the drive easily spin but cannot be removed. i can see the shaft spinning but if i hold the drive in place and still the shaft spins. is it both the motor and the drive thread stripped? how will i know if i cannot remove the drive?
Answer Neil, It's most likely the drive yoke WR02X11941 that has stripped out on the motor shaft threads. you'll need to hold the motor shaft still with a pair of pliers, grip the drive yoke and pull out and turn the yoke clockwise until it threads itself back onto the shaft, then you can unscrew the drive yoke off the shaft. You may want to remove the whole assembly from the freezer compartment, it may be easier to work with.
