Having an ice maker is always a plus to have around. I was able to find some general information that might help you along in finding out the possible issue. The other suggestion that i would provided is if you can find the actual model number of your unit. So that way the expert can provide you with specific information.

I'm sorry you are having this problem. The information you have received is good but this seems to be a different type of problem. Unfortunately, without a model number, I will not be able to provide any specific information. However, if it's dripping behind the icemaker, it could be a fill cup problem or the tube itself could be leaking. Sometimes adjusting the fill tube will help stop a water leak. For more assistance, a complete model and serial number will be needed and any additional details will be helpful. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
