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.

Your ice maker is overflowing and asking for to mush water to make the ice, you may have a real hi water pressure on your water supply
the is a easy way to adjust that but you are going to have to take
your ice maker out
then using a flat head screw driver remove the white square cover
you will see a gear and a adjustment screw and a lever like this
( - I + )
turn the screw to the minus sing a quarter way and install the ice maker back up.
Or a easier way is just closing the water valve before your fridge a little so it wont have so mush pressure and will not fill your ice maker so fast.
the ice maker feel up buy time not buy water level.

Ice maker Diagnostic Test:
- Remove the ice bucket
-Turn the ice maker off, wait 15 seconds than turn it back on
-Press the ice paddle three times, this will begin diagnostic test.
-PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH ICE MAKER DURING DIAGNOSTICS
-In 3 minutes you should see the rack inside turn 360 degrees
-AND the ice maker bowl should fill with water
-IF either DID NOT work, call 1-800-GE-CARES for ice maker replacement. A service call is approx $80. The $80 will be deducted from the part/labor if you choose to purchase/install parts from the service technician. If not, you will pay for the service call. Good luck.
