Make sure the water is not splashing out the fill tube rather than the icemaker. Sometimes ice forms in this tube and causes the water to shoot over the tube and run down. You could also try turning the water faucet valve down a bit. Your water pressure could be too high and it is filling too fast. Last thing if you have very hard water the cubs could be sticking in the mold tray and not releasing. When the icemaker fills again there is still ice in ther causing the icemaker to overflow.

attempt to pry off the plastic cover over the ice-maker (or look for screws). You should see at least one screw adjustment and clockwise turn is more water.

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.

Water from ice maker leaks into freezer and freezes door shut


http://www.appliancepartspros.com/frigidaire-valve-242252702-ap5671757.html


It sounds to me like the valve is not closing all the way and allowing water to flow when it should not. This overflows the tray and allows water to run to the bottom of the freezer. It could also be a timing or switch issue. IF you want to be sure replace the valve and if that does not work then replace the whole icemaker.

Ice maker not working on model #frs24zsg


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Icemaker overflows into holder freezing


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Freezer is not making ice, help?


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes after freezing , but doesn't refill with water , then replace the water inlet valve ( part that wall water line connects to on fridge ). If the icemaker does not dump and holds the frozen cubes , replace the icemaker . Also check the fill tube at the icemaker to make sure it is not frozen closed , due to a seeping water valve , and make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig of dust , lint , pet hair , etc.

Frigidaire not making any ice...


check inlet tube behind icemaker and make sure its not froze up. If so, it may just need to be thawed out but if it happens again you will need to replace water valve.
