I have a Frigidaire PLHS269ZEDBZ and the ice maker continues to run.
This problem started when I turned off the ice maker because the ice bucket was full. When I turned it back on, the ice maker continues to run through the cycles. It will fill up the ice tray with water, then the ice maker will immediately run through another cycle and add more water. This process overfills the ice tray and water runs through the freezer and out the bottom of the door.

If the ice ejector turns constantly, and water flows with each turn, you have a bad limit switch inside ice maker. This switch stops the motor inside, and thus the ejector, and allows for a freeze cycle. There are other possible problems but i suggest just getting a new ice maker. Not that hard to change out if you have any mechanical skills.
-Turn the ice maker off. If still leaking and decide not to use the ice maker to make any more ice then unplug the
water valve that let water run to the ice tray. Only the one for the ice. Otherwise you will not have any water at all.
first check the water supply on the ice maker check inlet water solinoid valve then reset the unit by unplugging power cord after a minutes plug the unit and start ice maker see to it that the compressor running.
Ice maker has built in thermostat that turns cycle on at around 10 degrees F. If freezer temp does not reach that point the ice maker will not cycle. So either the freezer is not cold enough or the thermostat is faulty.
Make sure that the ice maker motor that turns the cams and controls the various stages is also working.
See if the fill tube is partially blocked with ice. It's the tube where the water comes into the ice maker. 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.
A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up
If water keeps running to the ice maker all the time even when it doesn't call for water , the water valve for the ice maker is leaking(located in the back of the refrigerator,bottoom right),but if overflow only when it calls for water(no more than 7 seconds) the problem is in the ice maker control board, you can replace it but it will cost almost as a new ice maker.
