    The auger stopped because water got in it. I dried it out and when I reconnected it I wasn't paying attention and plugged it in backwards. Lights went out and ice maker went out too. Freezer is still working fine

    That's not good. I would guess that it probably fried the control board that sends power to the auger motor and possibly some of the wiring.
