It may be the arm in the ice maker is down. Even though the ice maker does not have the water hooked up if the arm above the ice bin is down it will still cycle the ice maker try lifting up the arm it should stay up this signals the ice maker that the bin is full and should shut off the ice maker. Hope this helps.
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.
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes all power to the door so the refrig can still run while working on the dispensor . Use a butter knife slipped down between the lower portion of the dispensor cover and the main dispensor from the inside and press down . There are 2 plastic tabs holding the lower cover in place . After the lower portion is unclipped , lift upwards to remove the top portion . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor front . There are 3 or 4 screws holding the white " body " in place , so remove them and it should slide out a little ways to allow access to the inner workings .
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.
The easy way to fix is unplug appliance - take back panel off freezer - melt ice in pan below evaporator - when ice is melted and you see drain tube mop water up with paper towel - with a measuring jug pour hot water into pan/tray below evaporator...repeat this at intervals of a few minutes 2-3 times moping water up each time with paper towel - next find something flexible to clear blockage in drain tube, curtain wire works - when you see water suddenly drain down tube blokage has cleared.
put back together and plug in..you are good to go.
Hope this helped, if you need any further assistance of have questions please feel free to comment again.
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.
the ice maker has an adjustment for the ice cube size. take your ice maker out and then remove the white square cover you will see a screw whit a - + symbols our it ours the + and that should solve your problem. NOTE: if the water over low and end up on the freezer turn it back to the minus a little.
Ice maker was installed properly, when you put the arm down it doesn't call for water to fill unit. It doesn't make any kind of noises at all. The water is turned on and all plugs are in there are no kinks in the line but when the arm is truned down for it to call for water nothing happens
The is for a frigidaire refrigerator.Ice maker is all new..
