Norcold 1200LRIM Leaking - Outside Compartment

Hello, and thanks in advance...

Tonight we noticed some water leaking under our Norcold 1200LRIM.

After examining the underside thoroughly, we determined that it was likely originating from somewhere else, mostly likely behind the refrigerator.

Sure enough, there is some kind of line with a blue piece in the middle of it. The leak seems to be coming from there. Please note that we're not engineers or technicians, nor are we particularly mechanically-inclined, so please forgive our generic use of words to describe things.

Attached is a picture of the leaking piece, with the point of the leak highlighted.

Can anyone provide guidance? For example, can this piece be repaired or replaced without the entire cooling unit being replaced?

Again, thanks! As always, we post the resolution to any issues, no matter what we discover, in the hope it will help others down the road.

Your photo did not post. Please try again. From what you describe , I would guess it’s the water supply line for the ice maker.

You may be right! Sorry about the photo thing. Not sure what happened. I've edited the post to include the photo.


Thanks!

The water line for the icemaker to my 1200 Norcold developed a leak so I turned it off at the kitchen sink where it got it's water from.

It's so weird being the same age as old people.

That's a great idea. We don't even use the icemaker.



Unfortunately, I don't think the icemaker in the 1999 Diplomat can be turned off like that. If it can, we'd love to know how!


Anyone...?


Thanks, Arch Hoagland!

Looks like you just need a new washer in that connection.

^^^^^^^ What he said. That's a standard hose bib connection so a garden hose washer will work.

Agree with Lt. Dan. That is a standard hose style of connection. If attempting to change the washer, be sure that the water is turned off to the MH. Either the electric pump or the city water hook-up. That connection is the incoming water line to the ice maker. That blue thingy is the ice maker solenoid, the white line and white nut on the bottom of the blue thingy is the inbound side to the ice maker. Water comes from its source to the blue solenoid to the line on the bottom to the ice maker.
Look under the kitchen sink for a set up of those small water lines and see if there is a valve with a small handle to shut that flow of water off, for servicing or if you no longer want to use the ice maker.
