Question about Refrigerators
The water level is sensed and turns off a valve, usually by a solenoid. Most likely the valve is worn. Here's how another FixYa tech answered the same question:

If the fill pipe that fills the ice maker is in it's proper position, then it is a defective water fill valve located in the bottom rear of the machine.
After harvesting the cubes the ice maker mechanism continues to rotate and turns the water valve on for 7 seconds. If it does not shut off smartly then it can cause the well to overfill, and flow water into the bucket.
Do not let this go. A small leak could turn into a major overflow, even overnight causing serious problems to the machine and as I have seen the entire house.
Good luck and hope this helps.
