Broken Auger Drum
Very simple fix! Just removed the screws holding the cover over the drum, and then the screws securing the drum to the shaft. Remembering the order and placements of the ice choppers and the block on the drum shaft is the hardest part; however, if you hold a long screwdriver up to the end of the threaded shaft and slide the ice choppers, block, spacers and washers from the shaft right on to the screwdriver, you don't even have to remember the order they attach in. Just set the screwdriver with those parts hanging from it aside, and slide them right back on after you replace the drum on the end of the auger screw shaft, re-attach the covers and you're done! I replaced the original plastic auger shaft with the aluminum corkscrew shaft years ago, and have had no problems until the drum started to crack and break. Too bad somebody doesn't make a replacement drum out of machined aluminum. The auger and drum are pretty much the only real failure points, and if they were aluminum instead of plastic, that assembly would be almost indestructible. Probably isn't as much of a problem if you let the icemaker do the job, but I don't like the taste of our water (even with the in-line cartridge filter that plugs in to the bottom of the fridge) so I turn the icemaker off and fill the bin with harder "crystal" ice from the store. Pretty sure that's why I have had to replace these components. The ice made by the refrigerator isn't frozen as hard as the ice I buy, so it is a lot harder on the unit. Fortunately, the replacement parts are pretty cheap (under $20), so if I need to do this every few years, it's no big deal.

Broken Ice Bin Auger Drum
This site sent a link with a video showing precise repair steps. I simply set my tablet with the video in front of me and stopped it with each step and was able to successfully complete the repair in less than 30 minutes. One thing that I did and would suggest is that you remove the ice and let the plastic get to room temperature to make sure the brittle cold plastic doesn't chip or crack.

Ice would not crush or dispence
(Your inst video did not apply to our model ). Removed the cover. Removed the 2 drew's to remove the housing over the crusher and auger drum. The housing would not come off. Finally I had to remove the auger shaft nut and then the housing came off. . As the housing was removed. The crusher blade Assy came with it (it was stuck together) when removed the crusher blades fell out. The problem was gettin all 3 blades with the washers inside the 2 metal brackets. It took hours to figure out how to get them inside those 2 brackets. When we finally got them inside the brackets and reassembled it. It worked fine. How we got the blades inn the right order was divine guidance. Our model is old and plastic cover and crusher blade Assy were stuck together. But we got it done

New auger and drum
Watched the repair video a few times and had at it. Used my cell phone to photo grinder set up, this did help. Now I am hoping it works like new.

Auger drum was broken
I just followed the video on You Tube. Very simple repair. Did have trouble with the little spring in the rear. When I re-installed the bucket in the the freezer, I couldn't get crushed ice. After pulling the bucket back out, checking to see that everything looked like it should, I saw the spring on the are had popped off. Replaced the spring and all is well.

The ice maker would not dispense ice.
I watched the repair video that was provided along with taking pictures with my phone as I disassembled the auger drum so I would know where all the parts went when it was time to reassemble the auger drum. It really was easy and the instructions provided were great.
