Hello.

I need to remove ice auger motor from Whirlpool Gold Side-by-Side Refrigerator Model Number GS2KVAXVS01. Motor is in a very tight spot - Adjacent wire connector is blocking removal. Just moving wire to side does not allow enough travel space for motor. Wondering if I can somehow safely remove the wire connector from the interior wall?

Would any one have a service manual for this unit? Any tips, tricks or advice would be appreciated.

As always, thanks very much

Have you already removed the 4 screws holding the motor in? Should be plenty of room to get the motor out...no way I know of to remove that harness from the door...foamed in?

for future reference, check out the diagram below, you gotta pull out the #22 and then you can get to the shaft below the coupler, #30, and #26Posted Image

Yes sir, the shaft is out. The only thing holding the motor is molded material around the 2 wires as shown in the image above. thank you.

Sorry Roberto. It's just a piece of rubber and the wires right? try prying it past the top of the boot it the door with a screwdriver or sumthin.

Sorry Bro...I have had a hundred of these out and never had a problem...any chance it is frozen in? Is there any play in the motor. At all will it wiggle?!

There is play - very little - right, left and up. I've tried using a putty knife to suppress the wire enough to slide the motor over them. Hasn't worked yet.
Thanks to all for the input so far.
