Hi this is Bryan. I have a feeling its not the icemaker leaking , Its probably you defrost drain is clogged.every 8 hours or so your ref. goes into defrost and the water is suppose do drain down a hole under freezer coils behind rear panel inside of freezer section , to fix leak remove rear panel in freezer and underneath the coils you will see more ice. take hot water (and some towels) and pour hot water under coils until all the ice is gone and it drains down hole freely this will take care of your problem. and you will be able to turn ice maker back on.,hope this helps Bryan, please press accept if your happy with reply, and please leave feedback , thanks again Bryan
