If water keeps running out into the icemaker and overflowing the icemaker, it means that your electronic water valve isn't sealing up on your refrigerator anymore and will need to be replaced. The part number for the water valve is(###) ###-####and this is the valve which can be located above the entire unit by the compressor or below the entire unit depending on where the water line from your house connects to the refrigerator. This valve will need to be replaced.
