My couple moves FREELY within that threaded screw...Do I remove just the coupler or the couple + threaded screw?
Do I need to take apart the entire unit and then unscrew the coupler? My coupler moves freely and it won't come off..I tried pulling it..no luck..
Answer Hello Newbie. You will need to use some channel lock pliers and unscrew the coupling from the threaded shaft. Then screw the new coupling W10169511 onto the shaft. These acn be hard to get off, when the coupler cracks or strips out. You will need to pul and turn at the same time to remove. Hope this helps.
I'm trying to remove my coupling and I'm turning it in the direction that the motor spins, but it won't come off. The motor just keeps spinning. Do you have any suggestions? I have removed the entire motor housing to try to get a better angle but no such luck.
Answer Dave, sounds like you've got a "stripped out" coupler thread. You are holding the motor shaft with a pair of pliers,aren't you ? If you are, then you may want to try pulling out on the coupler and turning, until you get past the stripped thread(s)and finish the removal process. Everything else you're doing is correct. Thanks, and Good Luck.
How do you remove the coupling. Is there a way to tighten it?
Answer Hello Wayne. It unscrews in the same direction the motor turns. It will screw on in the reverse direction. Use channel lock pliers to do this. Hope this helps.
What tool do you use to remove coupling from ice dispenser motor?
Answer Hello Gary. The best tool to use is channel lock pliers. It unscrews in the same direction the auger motor turns. Hope this helps.
