Water on the ice maker doesn't shut off - drips into the ice pan

I don't know what causes the water to shut off when filling the ice tray, but no matter what, the water keeps dripping over, and begins filling up the ice tray itself.

Most models of Ice makers have an automatic timer for the amount of water that is allowed to enter the Ice Maker tray. If your timer valve is going bad you need to replace it. First I would reduce the amount of water coming from its source. There should be a tapped valve under your sink, connected to your water line. You have to turn the top of the valve clock wise to reduce the amount of water the is going to the back of your refrigerator. That is where you will find the timer valve. Reducing your water flow should help reduce the volume of water being let into your Ice Maker.

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?

At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

Water dripping into the fridge, was told their might be a clogged drip tray but don't know where it is.

the drip pan is under the unit,, along the edges of some models inside, are little alleys that lead to the drip pan, sometimes they fill with ice and need to be cleaned out , look along the inside walls of the freezer

Ice tray filler tube freezes up and clogs up so no water goes into tray

The water inlet 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 tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

We are getting an overflow of water in the pan in the bottom of the refrig. What causes that and can the pan be removed to empty?

This may sound strange, but the cause of your problem may be your icemaker. The fill tube may be leaking before it gets to the ice maker and causing the pan uner the fridge to fill up too much. try turning your ice maker off for a few days and see if the issue stops. Or you can see if the tube is loose or iced up. If it is iced up, you may have a bad water valve. If you need more assistance, let me know. Hope this helps!

Our model 532 keeps over filling the ice maker causing a build up on the back and down all of the drawer. We can turn it off and thaw the entire box and the water keeps filling the tray even though the ice...

The fill valve for the ice maker could be stuck partially open and dripping into the ice maker. If this is the case shut off the water line to the ice maker and if the water stops you will need to replace the ice maker fill vavle

Water Leaks from Ice Maker of Sub-Zero 642

Sounds like the water inlet valve to icemaker is leaking - not closing completely after filling the tray. Rare, but possible. Prove it by shutting off icemaker arm or switch. If that is the cause, the drip will continue.
If dripping stops when I/M is off, then it is ice blockage in I/M fill tube and or diverter funnel at end of ice tray. Remove I/M, clean ice from both, and re-assemble.
Replacing that valve (water supply to refrig connects to it in the back) should solve it.
