Family helped me out and gave me a new fridge/freezer with ice maker but I can't keep the ice maker from backing up. It makes ice until the plastic tubes that go from the back of the freezer to inside the freezer (and into the ice maker tray) freeze up.

A plastic tube runs from the bottom of the refridgerator to the top near the freezer. I unplugged the freezer end and placed it in a bowl overnite to see if it leaked. It does leak (probably +12oz in 8 hours ), but I don't know how to fix it. I'm assuming this is caused by a water inlet valve leak. The fridge is not on a level surface either.

Thanks,
lucid

Trust me, that is not expensive compaired to some of the newer ones, and no,  cannot tighten any bolts.  The problem is internal, something is keeping the plunger from seating properly inside of the valve.  You can try taking it apart and flushing it out but it will probably leak out of the body, but you could try it.  If it does not help, or leaks, you will need to replace it.  Not worth the trouble to try to clean it out compared to possible problems from taking it apart.
