Does anybody know if the ice maker Lowes (#57773) sells will replace my defective unit in my Norcold 4 door model #1201LRIM. Thanks

Can't say about the Lowes. Take icemaker out and bring it to an appliance parts outlet and they can match it. Mine was a whirlpool product. I'll see if I can find the # on it. Pretty install, be sure to bend down the tab to allow the water inlet line to go into the reservoir. Also pull the cover off and adjust the water level to the max as they come set to the lowest setting. I went ahead and drilled a hole in the cover over the adjusting screw.
Hope this helps.
Dave

When I was looking at icemakers at Lowes for a unit to add to a residential fridge, they had 2 models. Both seemed about the same size, but they had different plugs. You will probably have to remove the Norcold icemaker to get at the plug to see if it matches anything at Lowes.

MCDDY also had a good idea to check an appliance parts store since they may have access to more models of icemakers than you could find at Lowes - possibly the exact model Norcold uses.

Thanks to all who answered my question. I took the good advice,removed the ice maker,took it to Lowes and it was an exact match. For 49.95 it included the ice maker, water valve and parts I will never use. Thanks again

Just for future reference, do you have the make and model number for the replacement icemaker you found at Lowes? Was it the #57773?

Thanks,

JEFF, According to the salesman at Lowes it is a Whirlpool universal ice maker kit, Part no. 57773 Model No. ECKMF94, RETAIL PRICE WAS 49.95. It was an exact replacement for the ice maker, the water valve needs an adapter,not a problem. I hope this helps, Ronnie

Ronnie,

Thanks for the information. The last time I had to replace a icemaker, Norcold wanted about 3 times that amount for their part.
