I think your right, you will have to pull the foil of and then you'll see a big split.
Watch out for the heater wire. When the tech put mine on he ripped a lot of the foil. I plan to make sure that I replaced that and put some more insulation around it before I get somewhere it may get close to freezing.

Thanks for the tips. I though maybe the brass nut and the brass ball seal needed a rubber seal. But it still leaked regardless. It's coming from the valve somewhere.

I'm sure it is warranted, but the dealer is eight hours away, and the local place said it wasn't worth there time to do warranty repairs.

I'll add this to the list of things needing fixed, next to the leaky hydraulic system.

Thanks

Just a suggestion, but your owners manual on the fridge should have instructions on how to winterize the ice maker. Follow that procedure which should include using an air compressor on the valve to blow out the valve and water line. This procedure forces the valve to " cycle" through as if making ice. Perhaps the valve is stuck or clogged.

If there is no outside access (not always fitted). You may need to pull the box in. Check for braces top and bottom. Power cord and feed tubing will have enough length.
