The water going to the ice maker wont shut off

I have a GE side by side. I noticed water running down the front of the freezer door. I did a check to see where it was comming from, and found it was the icemaker. When it is time for water to fill the icemaker, it no longer knows when to cut off. The water keeps running, spilling into the ice tray, and out the chute in the door. Is there anything that I can do to fix this...Please help!

Have a GE side c side and can't get water thru the
go here and look at part number 810,this is the water tank in the fridge section,get a hair dryer and heat up the tank where the water lines connect to it,also g.e. has problems with the water line in the freezer door the line freezes up.also when was the last time you changed the water filter?try this,open the freezer door and remove the bottom kickplate,on the left side you'll find a connector for the water line,disconnect it shut the door and hit the water dispenser,if water comes out of line where you disconnected it then you know the line in the door is frozen,if no water comes out i would change the filter and it that doesn't work i'd have to say you have a bad water more thing and this might sound crazy but if i didn't see it myself i wouldn't believe it,when you went to dispense water have you ever noticed that the condenser fan motor would sound like it was slowing down and also the strip in the middle where the doors close together touch it to see if it's hot,i've found three mother boards bad from this,i'd dispense water, and the fans would slow down, i hope i'm not confusing you by telling you this,lets stick with the basic things first disconnect the water line under the freezer door and behind the kickplate,shut the door and hit the dispenser,if water comes out of the hose the water line is frooze in the door,if no water comes out,heat up the water tank with a hair dryer,after a while like 5 to 10 minutes hit the dispenser but water will leak out the tube if the tanks frozen,if that doesn't do the trick i would change the water filter and if that doesn't work bad water valve,if you look down where the kickplate is you should find a tech sheet that will tell you how to jump out the ice maker,now what did you change out the ice maker?you said you changed two parts,what's happening that you changed the ice maker,was it not getting water to it,i mean if you're not getting water through the door and no water to ice maker,you either have a bad water valve or filter,start there and heat up the water tank,if that's frozen you won't get any wateralso look at this it will tell you how to start the harvest cycle on the ice maker,i beleive you shut it off for 20 seconds,turn it back on and move the arm in and out like three times.
hope this helps and good luck,let me know please what you find.

Ge model gsl251frfbs side by side. Ice maker/water dispenser not working when activated. makes ice, just won't dispense ice or water through front door. don't hear motor activating.

I would check the door switch that turn the light on for freezer. When the door opens the switch changes to deactivate the controls on the dispenser panel and when shut should turn it back on. I will help you trace the problem because sometimes there is a broken connection from the dispenser panel to control board. Let me know, Sea Breeze

No ice instead water dripping down into freezer making icicles

If you have icicles, where are they forming at? If on the front of the ice bucket, then look at the dispenser shoot door is closing all the way. The way to check that is to look into the shoot while holding a flash light (or bright light) up into the dispenser from the front side of door. You should see no light.

Now if you have ice buildup around the inside of bucket, mainly from the ice maker to the bucket then you either have an ice maker that is leaking water or you have a water valve that is not shutting off all the way. Suspect water valve if you have ice buildup within water inlet tube on top of ice maker. Frozen water within tube is good indication that water valve is leaking.

Look inside refrig side of refrig, usually located on right top side of wall, you will find a tag with model number and serial number. Need both to get you the right part number for ice maker or water valve.
