Based on your description, I'm betting the problem is a cracked manifold valve outside in the access compartment. Its hard to see cause its insulated with silver tape and electric 12v element wire. Its happened on this forum a few time already. Problem is valve is hard plastic and if not disconnected and drained the water is trapped within, if freezing its the first to fail. Mine has one 12 volt valve for on door water and behind it is a 117volt for icemaker feed, could be either. Two winters ago when I started back up forgot to tighten one line at bottom of valve. It leaked into the interior just like yours. Just had to tighten up, but I had it drained during the winter. Hope you find it!

I've never had and ice maker even here at home, for future reference are they really worth the trouble and loss of space in the freezer?
Depends on how much you like having ice for a cold beverage....for me, it's one of my favorite "extras" in my Berkshire....use it all the time. To each his own!

I agree CWGD. I grew up south if Houston so virtually every liquid that goes into my my mouth has ice floating in it! I love the ice maker. When mine was down, I had many ice cube trays in there to keep up with my demand and the volume of those trays plus another reservoir to hold made ice cubes is about the same as the auto maker plus its bin. I suppose if you always camp in more northern climes and fancy coffee and hot chocolate over iced tea and probably wouldn't want the ice maker.
