Can you locate the Kenmore Model Number? It will look like this=> 321.654987 What I think is the dual water control valve is leaking once it turns off. Here below is a ice a ice maker repair clip on You-Tube where he shows a slug of ice filling the ice maker fill tube. In most cases replacing the water control valve will stop the continued water flow to the ice maker once the ice maker fills. I will be here to answer any questions you have Thanks Sea Breeze
If water continues to flow slowly after filling the water control valve for your model will need to be replaced=> 241734301 Water Inlet Valve If ice maker simply over fills and then the water turns itself off then this points to a problem with the ice maker=> 5303918344 Ice Maker Assembly I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

There is an orifice that controls the water flow to the ice maker . If to much water is being fed to the ice maker it will result in an overflow. You may want to check the pressure of the water system in your house.
If the overflow is being caused by a continuous feed to the ice maker your electric valve supplying the water may not be reseating after it shut off electrically. If this is your problem obtain a new valve assembly to replace it.
yes, in fact the icemaker does meter the amount of water delivered to the icemaker, the valve should only be energized for 7 seconds. after that the power is cut off, so if valve continues to let water flow, it's bad (might have debris from water line keeping it open. unserviceable. )
