Question about Refrigerators
I recently replaced the water inlet valve 2206123 because the icemaker water ramp was freezing up. After I Installed the new inlet valve, the icemaker works GREAT, but now when i press the in-door water lever, water flows into the ice maker, which overflows if I don't stop. I was told I got a bad valve, so I got a new one, installed it and the same thing is happening.

SOURCE: Ice maker overflows
The Icemaker may not be dumping the cubes after they freeze then more water pours in on top of them. The icemaker has a heater which turns the cubes loose and allows them to dump. You may find someone to work on an icemaker, not sure. If this is the case, I would replace the icemaker.

Tips for a great answer:
refrigerators are made by Whirlpool and what you have happening is common with a
couple possibilities. Most likely the W10245167 Water Inlet Valve
is not shutting off after the fill time of about 7.5 seconds. If this is
happening the water will slowly fill the
ice maker tray above the lever that it should and causes the ice to connect together
on the top thus not allowing the cubes to be harvested because they are
basically welded together as a whole piece. And the other possibility is the
ice maker itself is needing an adjustment of the water flow time. Below I will
post a Icemaker
Repair video telling how to adjust the
time and other things to look for. This is possible but most times not always the case. Adjusting the flow time is
delicate and a little change can cause too much or not enough water. Lets watch
the icemaker a little closer and see if there is ice freezing up in the fill
tube behind the ice maker. You have seen the leaky faucets before and an old W10245167 Water Inlet Valve
can do just that making a mess inside your freezer and ice maker if
leaking. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker
