Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, I did not? that's strange. It never popped up or I would have responded. The metal bar was not clipped in place right?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The metal bar seemed to be OK after I removed ice from the metal and rubber tubes. There was a clip that looks like it holds the plastic tube in the plastic "bucket" that receives water for the ice maker trays. I removed that to take out the plastic tube but then replaced both items.
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 2 years ago.
Perfect. Yes, that clip just holds the rubber part of the fill tube to the bucket. The fill tube is not very long. On the back there is a connection that comes from the water valve which is on the bottom. Take the toe kick off the bottom and you'll see the water valve and main water line. I believe right in the middle on this one.
