My ice make works fine. However it seems that somehow my ice melts just enough to clump up and refreeze. This leaves large clumps of cubes which in turn makes ice not dispense properly. It has since broken pieces off my auger. I will replace the auger but what causes this clumping?
The clumping is somewhat normal. When the unit goes into a defrost cycle the cubes get a bit watery and will refreeze sticking together. Over time the ice will become larger clumps. In some cases though, the icemaker could be leaking and causing the issue. Look for deterioration of the icemaker mold. If deterioration is present then it is recommended to replace the icemaker.
What's the part number for the auger and bucket assembly for this GE model side by side?
Answer Hello Jan! The complete auger and bucket assembly listed for your model is part number WR17X11419. Thanks!
Wanting to know the difference between (AP32041914) Complete bucket and auger asm. and (AP3203458) Bucket and auger Asm. Which one will fit my model # GSS22JETGWW?
Answer Hello Matt,
WR17X11419 is about 12 inches wide x 16 inches deep x 6 3/8 inches high. This refrigerator ice dispenser bucket assembly includes the auger, bucket, cutting assembly and cover. So all you have to do is slide it into place. [AP32041914] does not come up as a valid part number and WR17X11429 is a complete auger assembly that is about 9 inches wide and 18 inches deep. It is not listed as a manufacturers' recommended replacement part for your unit.
