I unfortunately know nothing about `load-with-code-conversion' (so far).
Perhaps someone else will be able to offer a suggestion regarding the error

The first step for something like this is generally to try to find out
exactly which part of your .emacs provokes the error. To do that, use a
binary search: Comment out half of the .emacs to find which half is
problematic, then comment half of that half, and so on. Binary search is
extremely quick - in a few iterations you will have at least located what,
in combination with Icicles, is provoking the error.

Also, please always report which version of Emacs you are using. The more
info you provide (platform/OS, Icicles update #, phase of the moon...), the
