There is an orifice that controls the water flow to the ice maker . If to much water is being fed to the ice maker it will result in an overflow. You may want to check the pressure of the water system in your house.

If the overflow is being caused by a continuous feed to the ice maker your electric valve supplying the water may not be reseating after it shut off electrically. If this is your problem obtain a new valve assembly to replace it.

SOURCE: Ice maker overflows with water

yes, in fact the icemaker does meter the amount of water delivered to the icemaker, the valve should only be energized for 7 seconds. after that the power is cut off, so if valve continues to let water flow, it's bad (might have debris from water line keeping it open. unserviceable. )

SOURCE: Ice maker feeding too much water and overflows

There is nothing wrong with the icemaker if infact it is "overflowing". Be carefull not to confuse "overflowing" with the ice maker leaking. Nevertheless, if the icemaker is "overflowing" with water and is still making "BIG" ice cubes then you need to replace the water valve located behind the refrigerator in the compressor department. Hint: it is blue.... Also, you may want to hire an appliance person to do this for you. Should cost around $200 to have fixed.... goodluck..

Note: If you determine that the icemaker is not "overflowing" but instead is "leaking" water then you need to replace icemaker instead of water valve. One more tid bit of information for you, Its bad when I can look at the model number and know EXCATLY what your fridge looks like! This GE fridge will give you cooling problems in the near future. Turn off during thunderstorms, too many flicker's of electricty will burn up the computer board on your fridge costing you around $400 big ones.. More from my website on GE at:

The ice maker overflows the ice tray, so water runs down the side of my freezer.

if it has worked for 3 years then I would guess just a new tray

Ice maker not making ice

Not sure what model you have, but recommend you check to see if there's not a cube stuck in the dispersal unit. If not, then check plastic water supply tube in the back of the icemaker, sometimes they freeze solid and won't let water flow into the ice tray. I've had to use a hair dryer to defrost it if the freezer temp gets too low. Also, sometimes the ice maker inadvertently lets too much water enter the trays and it slightly overflows, which results in the freezing of the gears and paddles of the maker and you simply have to chip away the excess ice that overflowed the trays. If none of the above are the case, make sure you still have a solid water supply to the back of the unit, if the line runs outside of the heated portion of your home, it could have frozen outside of the fridge. Hope this helps.

Ice Maker Overfills With Water

Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module
