Resolved Question:

I have a Amana ACD 223 4HRS side by side. The Auger in the ice maker became disengaged from the plastic hub in the rear of the ice bucket. I got it back on but it was very difficult to do so.

Now the auger is very tight. The motor does turn it but I'm concerned about burning the motor out if its tighter than it should be.

Should the auger be this difficult to turn?

How would you have reattached the plastic hub to the metal auger?

After looking at the diagram I think I figured out that the hub (part #2) goes inside the bucket (#1), not outside is this correct?

That's correct! Yes it goes inside the bucket, thats your problem, I'm glad I was able to find the diagram for you, I hope this information is useful, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
