Water leaking from ice maker on 1992 Kenmore Coldspot Premium side by side by side refrigerator

The model is a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106 purchased in 1992. We were away for a month and I shut off the water to the house. When we came back, I turned the water on and the next day found water frozen in the supply tube in the freezer. I took it apart and thawed the tube but then water started leaking down the back wall of the freezer. The owners manual for this ice maker is listed as 2147464 Rev. D but it will not come up on a search list so I can look at a cut sheet on where the water is leaking from

I know that it can be difficult to have your refrigerator leaking. From what you are describing, it sounds like the fill tube stretched when the line froze. This will allow for more water to enter the ice maker during its fill. It is a timed system, so it can be overfilling the ice maker, which would cause the leak. I would suggest that you replace the fill tube on the unit to keep this from happening. If you would like to view a parts diagram, just click on this link and enter the model number:
