I have a Samsung refrig. The icemaker auger will not rotate.

Customer Question

I have a Samsung refrig. The icemaker auger will not rotate. Is it worth taking it apart to try to free it up? A replacement is $88. Thanks
JA: The Appliance Technician's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. Can you guesstimate how old your Samsung is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: RFG297AABP About8 yrs old
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yup
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Guess not
