The only thing that would really be preventing the bucket form going back on is if the auger gears weren't aligning. The best way I've found to put it back on is to have someone help. Tape the freezer door switch in to simulate that the door is closed. Have someone push the ice dispenser paddle on the front of the door while you push in the release button on the bucket and wiggle the bucket down and into place as the auger is turning.
Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open. Is there anything else I can help you with?
