OK so the tube that goes to the icemaker has come off?

correct

OK it likely came out if the fill tube to the icemaker froze up. The tube should just push back into the fitting, but you should make sure the fill tube is clear otherwise it will just pop out again next time the icemaker goes to fill up. Also if that continues to happened change out the fill valve as the valve is leaking through causing the fill tube to freezer creating the issue you are having.

All I ask is...Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. Even though you paid the site they will not disburse any part of it to me until you supply a good rating. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
