GE Profile PFSS9PKY Water is leaking into ice maker causing

Customer Question

Water is leaking into ice maker causing huge blocks of ice to form. I don't think it's the icemaker since ice is being made and there are no little icicles within the icemaker itself. Repair person told me this is a problem of GE and is often caused by something freezing somewhere else in the refrigerator; he advised me to thaw out the refrigerator which I have now tried, twice.
Water also leaks from ice maker into water catch tray, overflowing down the door.
When I try to turn off the ice maker by using the ice lock button, it still produces ice. How do I turn off this ice maker?

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If the ice maker is continuously leaking, you may have a faulty water inlet valve or the water pressure to the refrigerator is too low, not sealing the diaphragm in the valve. Is the water hooked to a Reverse Osmosis water filtration system? Has the filter been replaced recently?

Too long to receive reply. I had repair person out more than 24 hours ago and parts have already been ordered.
