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.
Had the ice maker replace. However, now that it is making ice again the ice despensed is always crushed. I can not get it to despense cubed. Does this mean I need to replace the ice bucket and assembly?
Answer Pam, No, This doesn't mean you need a new ice bucket assembly. You first want to make sure the end of the shifter arm on the bucket is properly installed in the solenoid yoke WR17X1066 so when the solenoid is activated it raises the arm and cubes are dispensed. You will also want to check the wire harness at the freezer door hinge, make sure there are no loose connections or frayed,broken wires. Then you will need to access and check the cube solenoid WR62X58 " The ice dispenser drive motor and cube solenoid are located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment. The drive motor moves the auger via a fork located on the drive motor. The cube solenoid allows cube or crushed ice to be dispensed on demand. 1. Remove 1/4-in. housing mounting screws (4) located at the four corners of the housing.
2. Slide the housing forward until the connector is visible, disconnect the connector, and remove the unit from the housing. 3. Disconnect the cube solenoid wires. 4. Remove cube solenoid 1/4-in. mounting screws (2) and remove the cube solenoid." You'll need a test light or multi meter to check for voltage to the solenoid when cubed ice is selected and the paddle is pressed. If there is no voltage to the solenoid then the dispenser control board is at fault WR55X10562
Need a white ice bucket but can't figure out which part # it is.
