I think the picture is clear. The ice maker works fine but over the past 4 months, I began to notice a large ice dam or build-up which appears to be coming from the ice maker. I am guessing it is a leak when the ice maker refills but I would like to know what is the easy fix for this. I have not done a lot of searching but this must have been noticed previously. Any help would be great.

The above picture is from within the ice tray looking up at the bottom of the ice maker. The ice block/dam/build-up was cleared ~2 weeks ago and now shows this. The longer one waits, the bigger this becomes (obviously....)

Thanks in advance!

Yes, Rick is correct.

If no ice in the fill tube then its the ice maker itself thats leaking.

Here's the Ice Maker for your model you can order here:

If there's a metal clip holding it in the ice maker fill spout, remove it and the fill tube will probably come out. It slides over the piece coming through the back wall.
