Steve: Hi, it’s Steve from PartSelect, you’ve decided to change the Ice Bin Drive Coupling
on your refrigerator, it’s a pretty easy job, all you’re going to need is a Philips
screw driver, let me show you how it’s done.
Now to change the ice bin drive coupling, we need to remove the complete ice bin off
of the door, simply open the door, and there’s a release button on the side, you simply depress
that and lift the whole assembly off, you can close that door again.
We’ll set this on a suitable work surface so that we can change this drive coupling.
Now with the ice bin removed and sitting on a nice flat surface, we can change that drive
coupling, it’s held in place by a Philips screw, now the caution that we have to take
here is that all your cutter blades are inside of here, and these stir around is up in the
bin area, if we take the screw out, with it up side down, then that arm will fall out,
and all those cutter blades will become dislodged and it’s a real pain to them back together.
So you want top make sure that you support that arm when you remove the screw. I’m
holding that arm, you can just tilt that up, and drop that part out, there is a small thrust
washer that needs to go on first, and you’ll note that the original drive coupling might
be smaller than the replacement one, it’s a little bit beefier, again supporting that
arm, you want to line that up, put the slides over the shaft, and then replace the screw.
Make sure it’s in tight, and we are ready to reinstall the ice bin.
Now, that we’ve got the drive coupling installed, we just need to put the ice bin back on your
freezer door, and you may have to line that coupling up with the other half, I suggest
that you take the arm and give it a little turn till it drops into place, make sure it’s
latched, and our repair is complete, that’s just how easy it is to change the ice bin
drive coupling, on your refrigerator. Thanks for watching, and good luck with your repair.
