Replacing Norcold 1200 icemaker tray

I have a Norcold 1200 frig with icemaker and the icemaker is beginning to leave occasional spots on the ice cubes. Somewhere I think I remember reading a post describing how to remove the tray only for replacing.

Anyone know where this might be or can give instructions on removing this tray. I can probably figure it out but always prefer to have some expert advice before starting a project.

Thanks for any help here.

P.S. I'm still getting the message that "my message is too short, please lengthen by 3 characters". Can't understand the problem with the above posting being too short.

The ice maker itself is a Whirlpool design that has been around for 30 years. They can be purchased and many of the home improvement stores rather inexpensively. Remove the 2 screws in the tabs above the ice maker mold going into the back freezer wall. Remove the lower screws of the plate the icemaker is mounted to going into the back freezer wall.
Once you get the ice maker free of the wall you will have to manipulate getting it turned. There is a quick connect Molex plug on the wiring harness going into the ice maker. Depressing a tab on the connector will allow you to unplug the wiring harness.
You can have an appliance parts company order the mold but I would just replace the entire ice maker. You will have to change the metal plate over to the new ice maker and remove the section of the fill spout to match the direction the water is introduced. Reinstall the ice maker in reverse order of removal and you should be back in business.

I replace the Norclod Ice Maker with the Whirlpool from Lowes for less than $50. and it works better than the one that came with the Norcold. Took less than 20 minutes to replace.

Thanks, sounds like a simple do-it-yourself job. Even I should be able to handle it. Appreciate the excellent instructions.

I sure wish I could shop at YOUR Lowes - their website lists the icemaker at $99.88...

I would visit your local store as you will most likely find it for $50. I have two Lowes near me and both were the same price. Good luck!

I bought mine at a Lowe's while on the road for less than $50. Googled how to change the ice maker on a Norcold 1200 and chaged it in the parking lot in case I needed any other parts. I did not, the package was complete with parts left over that are not used on the 1200. It was a universal ice maker the fits Whirlpool refrigerators.
