I have had a repairman look at this refrigerator
Usually it takes too much labor to fix that line, Kitchenaid built in refrigerators have capillary tube which licks at the back by suction line tube. Refrigerator will need ti be moved out from cabinet in most cases. Tech would want to give You a warranty, so they usually would replace the whole sealed system for big money, but most likely it last 10-15 years. If They will fix one pipe, next year You might call him back, leak might be in different pipe, but it will be the same expensive (due to labor). Check my video out. A Year ago found leak at evaporator, explained to customer better to do the whole system, but he wanted only evaporator replaced since its so obvious. Now we will replace the whole system, Evap is ok, heater too, but now, capillary tube + suction line + drain pan heater loop(freon pipe). If You watch video thru till the end, you will see where heater on old evaporator touching evaporator coil in multiple bents.
