Ice maker is leaking into the tray where the ice is dispensed causing the ice to become embedded into the tray
I have a GE side by side model #SSS25KFMC WW and my issue is that when the water is dispensed into the tray it is also leaking water into the holding tray so everytime it makes ice the next time it pours the water some of it is coming into the holding tray causing the ice to become frozen into the tray. Is there something that I should be looking at specifically to locate the problem????????
Extra water is getting into my ice cube tray and leaking down the back into the bottom of my freezer. The GE repairman said I needed a new saddle valve because the ice maker wasn't getting enough water. I replaced the saddle valve and the water filter in the refrigerator (the refrigerator is 6 months old). The problem is getting worse.

Just because you get water from the dispenser does not mean you should also get ice made in the ice maker. Fact is there are two side to the water control valve. One for the ice maker and the other for the water dispenser. Is there ice remaining inside the ice maker slots? If not then pour water into the tray until full and if after the water freezes it drops the ice into the ice bin this will indicate a defective=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet ValveIf nothing happens and the ice maker tray are full of ice this will indicate a defective=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker AssemblyThe ice maker is cannot be rebuilt on this model.

Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 321.1234578 Are you sure that the water in the ice maker is melting and flowing down into the ice bin? What may be happening is the water control valve for the ice maker may be allowing water to continue flowing into the ice maker tray even when off due to the water control valve being defective. If your refrigerator also has a water dispenser and the water is not continuing to leak is because the water control valve has to sides. One side is for the ice maker and the other side is for the water dispenser. I am here if you have questions, ThanksSea Breeze
Good day, Water leaking from the water fill valve when it should be off can overfill the ice maker cavity causing that, or the fill tube from the back of the machine going into the back of the ice maker has become dislodged.
Machine could be going into it's defrost cycle for too long, warming up the area around the tray causing the cubes to partially melt.
So the dispenser is getting water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then
try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell
you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
If the valves clicks but water doesn't get to ice maker the fill tube can be stopped up with ice.The waterinlet valve on the back of the unit where the
water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and
block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to
see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill
try turning down your water inlet pressure go about half way and play with it from there also check the tube going to the icemaker to put water in the maker make sure it is all the way into the ice maker
