My Kenmore refrigerator ice maker overflows the cube tray when filling with water before the valve closes. The water valve shuts off completely. Any ideas? Thanks.
Ice maker overflowing:
The water inlet valve supplies water to refriderator ice.
The valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to work.
It means water pressure is to low.

I just replaced the fill valve on my Whirlpool ice maker because it would not pump water. Now the tray fills and keeps overflowing into the ice bin.
Drain machine with little valve in back. Then try again.
model 795.5101 water over flowing ice maker
Installed new ice maker and water valve ,it made ice for a few weeks and now water leaks from drain tube into drain pan.
I have replaced the icemaker and water control valve on my Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator. When the ice tray fills, water still runs into the bin.
This sounds like your "shut-off valve" is getting stuck. It may need to be cleaned. Though you said you just replaced it, which makes me wonder if it might be something else like a bent bail wire.
Ice maker water does stop filling up.
The water overflows in the cube tray in my Frigidaire ice maker. It flows into the ice bin and freezes there.
The water inlet valve supplies water to the refrigerator ice and water dispenser. The valve requires a minimum of 20psi to work properly. If the water pressure is too low, the valve may not close fully when the power is shut off. As a result, the valve leaks water into the ice maker, causing it to overflow.
I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator, about 7 years old. I am having trouble with the icemaker, it makes ice cubes, but somehow there is ice forming in the bottom of the ice tray.
Is there possibly water overflowing in the icemaker? Could it have anything to do with the refrigerator water filter being clogged? I have noticed that the water flow has gone way down at the water dispenser.
Please advise on how to fix the icemaker problem.

I just had this problem with my Amana. I cleaned the condenser coils under the fridge. It was caked with dust and pet hair and cleaning it solved the problem!
My Kenmore refrigerator ice maker will not turn off and overflows the container. What should I do?

The icemaker water valve needs to be replaced more than likely. The valve allows water to seep through the hose at a slow rate which freezes at the inlet to the icemaker.
My side by side refrigerator leaks water into the ice bin when filling the ice tray with water. The water leaks as it enters bin from the chute.

Sounds like the water valve is sticking open when the ice maker is asking for water. If you have hard water i would say that will be your problem. Also the ice maker will have a water adjustment on it. Look in your owners manual to see were the adjustment screw is locate.
My Frigidaire ice maker keeps filling the tray up every 5 minutes. I checked all the micro switches in the maker and they are good. Is the ice maker bad?

Do you have the lever bar pushed to stop the ice flow? I ask because I had an auto ice maker once and didn't know there was one for the longest time ;-)
My Sears ice maker overflows when filling. I replaced the water valve, but it still overflows. Is there an adjustment on the ice maker to control the amount of water that goes into the ice maker tray?
I have a Kitchenaid refrigerator, model #ksrj25cnss00. The icemaker has water coming over the front panel of the icemaker and making a large icicle in my freezer. Any advice?
