SOURCE: ice maker over flows with water

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.

SOURCE: Ice maker feeding too much water and overflows

I have the GE Profile TFX24PR that exhibited the same symptoms. I had water leaking, making ice in the bottom of the ice bin, as well as under the ice bin. I also discovered ice down the back wall of the freezer.

A technician replaced the ice maker, which did not solve the problem. He put the original back and replaced the valve on the back. That too did not solve the problem. I took matters into my own hands.

I discovered that the ice maker water fill tube that comes in through the back of the freezer wall was leaking. Water would run down the outside of the tube. Some of the water would go into the ice maker, some would go into the ice bin and some of the water would also run down the wall of the fan housing where it passes through a hole in the fan housing. The big problem was the water running down the wall of the fan housing. From there it ran onto the cooling coils, where it would freeze, causing the freezer to go into extended defrost. My freezer and fridge would warm up and I had some food spoil.

If this looks like it may be your problem, you may want to enlist some help for this; it is tedious, time consuming and requires working in the confined spaces of the freezer.

After disassembling the fan housing I was able to access the fill tube. It just pushes in and is prone to wear, especially after fourteen years. I just reversed the ends of the tube and pushed it back in for a snug fit. You may want to consider using a sealer. Everything is working fine now; lots of ice in the bin, and no stray ice or water.

SOURCE: Ice Maker Problem with overflowing

When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and the problem is in the ice maker board but if pours water for nomore than 7 seconds and still overflow it means that was extra water in the ice maker ,that means that the dual water valve(located in the bottom back of the refrigerator) is leaking and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.

I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Bx 21 refrig with ice maker in lower freezer floods over when it fill the ice tray is it the water valve or the ice maker bad


The valve could be bad if the water continues to run and overflow or if the valve is slow to close allowing it to overflow. If it just fills and cuts off quickly then the ice maker may be the problem. On some ice maker you can take off the plastic end cover and look for the + -. Turning it towards the - is less water. -

I have an U-line combo 75A and the ice maker(part number 400) has started overfilling. When water enters the ice maker, it runs out the overflow hole. Any suggestions?


few thing can happen, bad thermostat it caused the ice maker stuck in harvest cycle, short in ice maker defrost heater, bad water valve switch or the overflow hole drilled to low, it should be 1/4 inch below the top, I seen some of them drilled 1/2 inch below and it caused water leak.

Ice-maker water overflowing into the freezer/ice-maker.


Possibly the inlet valve.  If it doesn't shut all the way off it will drip water which will freeze in the chute and cause it to overflow.

Water in icemaker overflows into ice cube storage box AND CAUSES ICE CUBES TO FREESE TOGETHER AND FORM BIG ICE CHUNKS. ALSO THE FULL SHUT OFF PADEL HAS ICE FORM ON TOP OF IT


Check the ice maker after it dropped the ice cubes and when it calls for water it should be pouring it for no much more than 7 seconds ,if more it overflows, in this case the module board inside the ice maker has to be replaced(or for almost the same price with parts and labor you can replaced it for a new ice maker) But if water is sitting in the ice maker all the time , the dual valve which supplies water to the ice maker is leaking and needs to be changed (it's located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover where the water line is hooked up).

Ice maker overflows with water


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. )

Water dispenser


wow that's agood one!!!! theres a short for sure, just a matter of where. somehow your energizing both sides of water valve at once, sounds as if it would be behind the dispensor, at the switches. would remove the dispensor cover and have a look for a bad switch or exposed wire
