    U-Line Ice maker DIED-gctid392123

    After 20yrs of faithful service my U-Line ice maker has died - heard new is around $1,100, any thought on another brand ... thought there was some threads on BOC, could not find them.

    It appears the stop/start relay is dead, replacement is 3wks away for $30 ... then we'll be able to tell if the compressor is toast too ...

    Its pretty hard to fault an appliance that lasts 20 years.

    Possibly Uline might be a pretty good machine???

      Maybe 3 weeks away with that dealer but you can fed-ex one in 24 hours if you find the part. Here is just one supplier: http://www.repairclinic.com/U-Line-Ice-Maker-Parts

        Yes you are right about the 20years as that is how long ours lasted and we soon found out what it was like to have

        to go buy ice all the time. We bought a new U-line just like the old one from Camping World as the also use them in RVs.

        To bad they cost so much but I guess that is Boating. The compresser would not come on as that why the need to replace.

        Good luck and hope yours can be repaired. Arizona Bob

            I HAD TO REPLACE My ice maker AFTER 17 YEARS ........if you want no install problems and a perfect fit ..... stick with u line call bob for a price at north land supply @http://www.norsupco.com/index.html they are in ont canada ....good luck

            also the edgestar ice maker that the other boc member recomends will not fit your opening with out doing some carpentry and produces only 1 pounds of ice in 24 the u line produces 24 pounds in 24 hours

              My U Line ice maker also died after 20 years of service. When I called U Line to confirm exact measurements,(as this was critical in my case) customer service was less than good. After looking closer at the back of the unit I found that in 1988 or so, Raritan made the marine units for U Line. I then called Raritan and found their replacement was exactly the same as my old " U Line". I went on line ,looked for the best price, and for about 900 bucks purchased it. Has ben working great for the last 4 years. Good luck!

                  My U litne ice maker stopped working several years ago.

                  I replaced the ice maker unit, that has all the controls in the front of it, and all is well.

                  If you try that route be sure to get a U-line ice maker as they are different than the ones that are found in refrigorators - although they look the same.

                  $200 was much better than $1200.

                    How was the swap, did the new fit without any modifications & does it produce enough ice compared to the U-Line?

                          I have a stainless steel U-Line Ice Maker that I pulled from my boat. It was working fine, but needs a new ice basket. Will sell for $150 US. Available in the Seattle area.

                            And never leave a dock with a water connection.

                            I like clear ice but I don't want my battery bank pumping water and running the inverter to be frozen and melt away if I am not going through cocktails fast enough.

                            Best Ice you can get for a cooler is clear ice that is then put into a deep freeze to bring the ice temperture down a bit further even though most of your "cold" (I know there is no such thing just an absense of heat) is wrapped up in the phase change between ice and water.

                              Hi Endless Summer,

                              We have one for sale that was pulled from a Grand Banks, everything is in working order, the only thing missing is the coverplate over the lower part of the unit. It has a stainless exterior. If you are interested let me know through a private message on the blog, we are located near Seattle.
