Welcome to the forums.

I would turn off the water supply or the ice maker until the problem is fixed.

That fitting is a replaceable item.

If you leave me a make and model I'll point you in the right direction.

That part is the fill tube. It connects to the water line and creates a pathway for the water. The part is replaceable from the back of the fridge.

Sometimes I've seen it leak at that point if it has become frozen shut. If yours is not leaking any water inside and is making ice that wouldn't be your problem. The part may just have cracked.

Below is the link to your part. Available from any online parts store as well as local appliance parts places.
