Sounds like you need a new line. Are you sure it is leaking from the middle, and not seeping down to the middle from one end? Is one end plastic? And if so, did you use teflon tape?

Water leaking from the bottom of the refrigerator

You could have a clogged drain line or a cracked drain pan. I would start with the drain line.

Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.

Replace the water filter cartridge in your refrigerator if the ice tastes bad or the control center display recommends it.

I would replace the plastic tubing ASAP. After 8 years using the plastic tubing we found our finished basement ceiling leaking water. When we looked into the source we found a hairline crack spiraling along the plastic tube. This must have leaked for several months. The very fine water spray ran down the wall and through the supply line hole in the floor and onto the ceiling. Replace the plastic line with a steel braided one. You wont have any issues with taste or breaking.

Water is leaking from water hose at bottom of frige when water handle is depressed. Ice maker works.

If your hose is copper or plastic, this is a common problem.

I reccomend replacing it with a stainless steel braided, icemaker line. They are more flexible and less prone to leaks.

Automatic water dispenser not working/bypass valve leaking alot

Dear Rodeo mary,
Before you do anything else, please first defrost the fridge. Yes, turn it off and leave it open for a couple of hours until all the ice in all compartments has melted. Clean it and put it on again. Is it ok ? Please let me know.

Samsung Ice Maker on Mdl RB215LASH

It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.
