The motor broke off the plastic enclosure. I can not get the "Assy, auger motor/ yoke" off the motor, to install it on the new plastic "enclosure". That yoke can't fit thru that small round hole. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Sadolf. You can remove the yoke by unscrewing it from the motor. These can be very tight and hard to remove. You will want to try to remove it with channel lock pliers. Hope this helps.

I have my parts assembled, but now the ice tray is not filling up. It was working fine before. It seems to be leaking underneath the refrigerator.
Answer Hello Jim,
You need to make sure the icemaker fill tube is no frozen up. You should use a straw or similar item to push into the fill tube since the fill tube can be blocked with clear ice. If not, make sure the water lines are all connected properly.
Does part number 12001773 the correct part for my model number and does the yoke ( the blade that threads on the end) come with the motor assy.
Answer Andy, The correct part number for the auger motor is 12001773 based on the basic model number you supplied. The ice dispenser yoke
63052-2 is a separate component, and will also need to be orderred.
How do you get the "U" shaped spinning piece off the motor assembly? I can't remove the silver plate that the motor attaches to bc that "U" shaped piece is holding the plate on.
Answer Hello Posties. You will need to turn the yoke 63052-2 clockwise to remove it. Also, you can use channel lock pliers to hold the shaft, or take a hammer and tap quickly on the yoke to break it free on the shaft. Hope this helps.
What's the thread of the the shaft that the yoke screws into. I would like to crew a nut onto the shaft as the
yoke has striped
Answer Hello Xeiong. The manufacture does not offer the size of the threads. You will need to contact them for this information. They recommend when the yoke strips, you replace the yoke assembly 63052-2. A nut will not hold it enough to turn the dispenser. Hope this helps.
I replaced the ice cube bin shelf because the motor has broken off in the back. (plastic gave way) Now this shaded pole motor assembly only runs CCW. (facing the gearcase output shaft) This drives the auger pushing the cubes backwards. ????? Thanks! Flipping the wires does no good, in or out of the fridge. Is it DC?
Answer Hello Mike. I have not had a similar problem, most auger motors either run or don't run. Most of the problems are due to a stripped auger drive yoke, not the motor itself. No, the auger motor is not a DC motor, it's an AC, and only has 2 wires to it. I can only recommend you re-order the part12001773 (you have the correct part number). Looking at the drive shaft, it should rotate in a clockwise direction. Hope this is helpful and Thanks,
