Model 106 Kenmore ColdSpot / WhirlpoolFor several days while the whole family was on vacation the icemaker was left on (oops, should've locked it) with the water off.  After noticing a puddle behind the fridge I checked the icemaker and it isn't producing any ice (the water going to the icemaker is slowly dripping out the back where the supply tube leads in).  I figured it was probably frozen up somewhere and poured some warm water in it and that seemed to "help" as it did spit out about five or six overly large cubes before eventually getting locked up solid (I'm assuming a result of having more water in the tray than it could handle when it froze).  This of course has led to the same leaking as before.I've shut off the water and locked the icemaker but I'm not sure what I should do next.  Breaking up the ice that has frozen in the tray would be the first order of business but that will just lead to another large frozen block if I leave the extra water in there, I'm sure.  What would be the easiest way to drain the water from the tray after it has been melted?Can I be reasonably positive that that is the only issue?

Need the rest of the model number. 106. is only the prefix that tells us it was made by Whirlpool.  Remove the ice maker from the box and dump it out in the sink, then reinstall it, put the arm down and turn the water back on.  Defrost the thru tube while the ice maker is out with your blow dryer, pouring water in this area will just make matters worse.  However you have another problem since water should not be leaking from the fitting in the rear when the tube is frozen, need to see about this leak also.
