First there are a couple options. Turn the water on and use the water dispenser. If you dispense water out the front dispenser and the icemaker starts filling with water and overfilling at the same time, you have a failed diode cluster which is down by the water valve on the back of the refrigerator. The diode cluster would need to be cut out and new one spliced in it's place. Now if the water dispenser doesn't affect the icemaker you have 2 other possibilities. If you turned off the icemaker off and the water stopped flowing in and overfilling the icemaker, you need to replace the icemaker itself. On the other hand if turning the icemaker doesn't stop the water from overflowing, your electronic water valve on the back of your refrigerator has a solenoid sticking open so it'll need to be ordered and replaced.
