Ok so this happens every time the icemaker fills correct?
or is the icemaker constantly dripping?
ok good info on the rear of the icemaker there is a white fill cup !
This fill cup is where the water enters the rear of the icemaker for it to fill the icemaker mold cavity.
some times that fill cup will get some frozen water in it and the water can no longer go into the ice maker mold correctly .You can take your finger and feel inside the cup to see if you feel any ice.
and look at the end of the fill tube as it comes out of the rear wall ,make sure it does not have any ice on it ,that can cause the ice to spray as it comes out of the fill tube.
Let me know if you feel ant ice in the cup or see any on the end of the fill tube.
ok good info , would you say that the icemaker is level ?
It could be that the front is lower then the rear for it to overflow from the front.
ok and if you need to manually cycle the icemaker you can.
You will need a short jumper wire about three inches long (I recommend a piece of #12 electrical solid wire ) make a U shape and .Remove the front white cover from the icemaker it just pulls off and you will see some holes and letter next to the holes jump T to H and after the unit begins to rotate remove the jumper.
And let it harvest and fill that way you can watch it .
Oh your model is a bottom mount so you have to tape the door light switch up so it thinks the door is closed also for the icemaker to work.
