Model 1200 ice maker line melted

This problem is on a 01 Endeavor. Is this something that I can replace without a lot of problems?

If the line was a 1/4" plastic one , and you feel it would just melt again , consider copper tubing .
Depending on the connection locations , the fridge might have to be pulled out of the cabinet 4 to 6 " for access at the back of the fridge.

melted from what? If it's resting on something hot, you can replace it with new plastic tubing and route it away from the heat.

If it's original, I'd pull out the fridge and replace all of it. It gets brittle over the years from age and could start leaking. If you just want to replace the part you can access from the outside panel, you can cut it above where it is melted, get a coupling and replace the damaged portion. That tubing and fittings are available at Home Depot, lowes or most hardware stores.

My tubing is wrapped in foil tape and inside that are wires to keep the tubing from freezing. You can unwrap the wiring and then re-install the wire/foil tape when completed.

We're all assuming you mean the plastic water line, but which one? There's one going from the water supply to the ice maker solenoid, then another going from the solenoid to the ice maker. First one is easy, depending on your access. The second one is a bit tough, but doable. This second line, from the solenoid to the ice maker, doesn't actually connect to the ice maker; it connecs to a trough that the water goes down into the icemaker. It is also heated to keep it from freezing.
