Ice maker piece turning auger just spins
Connection point where auger on ice bucket does not turn when ice on door is pressed. it appears, the shaft where the auger meets the ice maker, butterfly mechanisim on end of shaft that meets the auger is loose and unable to tighten so that the auger will turn. Anyone have any idea how to tighten the butterfly on the shaft so that it will spin when the door button is pushed?

I'm assuming the part you called "butterfly" is the yoke (#9 on the diagram). Remove the yoke by turning it CW while pulling away and check the motor shaft threads for damages.

If the shaft threads are OK, replace the yoke.

If the shaft threads are damaged, replace the auger motor.

- The yoke Part number: AP4072309

Part number: AP4072309

- The auger motor assembly Part number: AP4009036

Part number: AP4009036

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG MSD2757AEB Ref - SXS/I&W |
