U-line Model 45A Ice Maker: Ice Bucket?

Post by Steve424 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 9:00 pm

All,

I have a U-line Model 45A Ice Maker aboard my 1980 F36. The ice maker works well. But.... The Ice Bucket is missing. :cry:

The original parts catalogue describes the part as “item 40, Part No. 524.”

Unable to find the part anywhere online? Should I just call u-line?

Best,

Steve

Sorry for the late response. I did speak with U-line. They no longer manufacture the Ice Bucket/Bin. I sent an email to U-line as well. I received the same information. They no longer make it and they do not manufacture a like substitution.

My short term solution?

I took the fruit bin from a small college-dorm-room refrigerator. It kinda fits and collects the ice OK. I will continue to search for a better solution.

Perhaps you could make one from fiberglass.

I love that site.

My dimensions on my bucket are 10w x 11.75d x 5.75h which matches this item from what I can tell on the 1 inch grid marks.

Might want to check at a boat salvage yard. When I needed an extra ice bucket I found one it was $5.00.
