Sounds like either the water tube is not located inside of the ice maker cup right or something in the cup of the ice maker is blocking the water from going into the ice maker mold....

My question is:

Why did the ice build up in tube enough for the water to leak into compartment?

And my question is:

Huh?

Ah, ok, this is caused by your water inlet valve not sealing completely: http://www.repairclinic.com/referral.asp?R=154&N=1071263

This, in turn, can be caused by your water pressure being too low-- although I'd expect to see other problems such as hollow ice cubes. Or sediment in the water-- install a whole-house water sediment filter if you're on a well. Or could just be time for that valve to fail.

Replace the valve. Machs nicht on shutting off the water in the meantime.

Indeed, my son. An old filter will not only restrict flow, but can cause other, more unpleasant problems as well. Harken and beware: http://fixitnow.com/wp/2003/08/11/appliance-tip-of-the-day-icemaker-water-filters-2/

don't know if that means Garlic... Knoblauch is German for that... :P (when I go and get my occasional Kebab serving from the Turkish lads at the kiosk, I ask for Sarymsak). 

This last question withdrawn. :D:D
