Default Ice Maker Connector leaking

I had new flooring put in yesterday, and we found a leak behind the refrigerator. It's coming from the ice maker hose/connector. The problem is that I can't find this type of connector anywhere. Any advice would be great!

Default Ice maker

never seen that kind of valve before I would change that just
because its plastic???? is the leaky from the hose were the stainless
Steel collar is pressed on????

could you change the hose and change the valve
I'm not a fan if plastic valves or hoses use a stainless
Steel braided hose and a brass valve if you can
have you taken it apart and put a little pipe sealant on the threads
and union connections??

Thatís a factory joint and you have to have a plumber tear the entire recessed box out And replace it with something better
