Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect you may have a leaking water inlet valve that is overfilling the ice maker.
May I please have your model number from the tag on the refrigerator so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?
Well, the valve itself will need to be replaced. It is mounted under the cabinet, accessed by removing the panel below the doors.

The water leaks through the diaphragm in the valve and into the tube that leads to the ice maker.
Do the cubes seem to be normal size when they come out of the ice maker? Can you see an ice trail from anywhere that leads to the ice bin?
So the water has to be leaking from the ice maker or there would be a trail. I would replace the valve.
You may be able to but it will only go into a harvest to fill for about 10 seconds or less every couple hours....
The only way water can get into the bin is from above the bin. If you see no ice trail, it has to be dripping down from the ice maker. The plastic line is solid from the valve to the ice maker, so you would see evidence if it leaked before the ice maker.
