Ice maker leaking into ice tray making icebergs

Maytag 20.6 cu. ft. Model # M1TXEGMYW ice maker leaking into ice tray making icebergs. has been doing this for months and is getting worse with time. I cant see any dial or adjuster to decrease the fill of water to tray. can someone please tell me if this is normal and if there is a simple way to fix this it is only 7 years old and has had one other issue that we had to thaw it out and clear the discharge tube from debris in order to fix that one i hope this is an easier fix

The icemaker could need seal replacement. Check with an appliance parts supplier.

Testimonial: "it turns out the unit needs to be replaced as it is allowing more water to discharge into the tray than is necessary causing water to dip into a iceberg or mountain below the icemaker in the ice cube tray. constantly have to remove the block of ice (daily) or it becomes one solid block of ice in the tray requiring us to remove the entire tray and start over."

SOURCE: Maytag Icemaker freezing up

Possibly a bad valve but more likely not enough water coming to the unit,follow the water line from the back of the unit to where it hooks to the pipes there is usually a little saddle valve there,try closing it all the way and then open it back up check the water through the door and see if the pressure doesn't improve. 
 You can also remove the Ice maker clear out the fill tube and sit a cup under the end of it for a day or two if you get water in the cup and Ice in the tube you probably have a solenoid valve that isn't closing completely.
