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.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water driping from freezer to refrigerator


If this is a side by side refrigerator, water dripping from the cold air return indicates a warm air leak, or some source of constant heat presence. Check to make sure doors close completely, that you have a tight seal along the entire edge of all four sides of both doors, that a light is not staying on when door is closed, that your ice maker is not stuck in the harvest cycle which turns a heater on underneath the ice maker, some other cause not determined without personal inspection.

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Ice maker water keeps running


Please keep in mind that I am attempting to diagnose a problem with your appliance without being there and with very little information.
My first guess is you will need to replace the water valve. How fast is the water coming out. If it's a trickle, you have a bad water valve. If it is flowing as hard as it flows when the ice maker calls for water,
there could be a problem with the switch inside you ice maker is bad and continues send a signal to the valve to keep sending water. You can check this by unplugging the ice maker from inside the freezer and if the water valve stops sending water. You will need to replace the part inside the ice maker or replace the whole ice maker.

Water driping on top shelfe from freezer,


The drain most likely was blocked by food debris and the water from defrost cycle had no where to go...unplug refridge...chip some of the ice along the bottom carefully or use heat gun to melt ice...when the tube becomes exposed put some hot water in the drip pan..this should help the ice melt in the drain tube....use a straw or curtain wire to clear blockage...you should see the water suddenly drain down tube...put everything back together...this is not a temp issue but more a blockage issue.

Ice maker freezes up and drips water


I am assuming you have the ice maker that the tray twists to release the ice. There is a new tray out with a wall to prevent the water spilling over. The part number is
