How do you replace the ice crusher auger on a whirlpool ed5jhaxtq02 refrigerator?
To replace the ice bin auger you will need to remove the screw located on the bottom of the bin that holds the assembly in place. You will then take the 2 or 3 screws inside the bin out and then the auger and crusher assembly will lift out. Once this is out you will need to remove the crusher assembly paying attention to how it came apart. Reinstall onto the new auger and reassemble.
The container that the ice cubes are frozen in is slowly dripping. Can I fix it or how can I buy another one?
Answer Hello Larry. You need to check and see if there is a water leak in the unit. If not, there is warm air causing the ice to melt and then leak water.
Our electricity went out after a storm and was off several days, the ice melted in the bottom of the bucket. When the power came back on the water froze again and my husband tried to get ice out of the dispenser and the auger busted out the back of the bucket. So what I need to know is ordering the bucket going to solve my problems and will instructions come with the bucket on how to reassemble the auger into the bucket?
Answer Chance, If the bucket got cracked or distorted, replacing the "bucket" should solve the issue.No, the part will not contain an instruction sheet (most parts don't) but it is doable, but you have to be carefull. When you remove the front cover 12571606 from the bucket don't break the tabs on the top or bottom. Once you remove the two(2) screws on the bottom of the bucket, the auger and chopper assembly can be removed as a single unit 12740302. Reverse the procedure and test the dispenser for operation.
