Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

The ice maker shut off arm is bad which is the on off for the ice maker, if it was working properly as the ice bin filled with ice it would push the arm up shutting the power to the ice maker off, so the ice maker will need to be replaced. Below is the replacement ice maker:

that is a link to order it at sears but you can get a brand new one on ebay far cheaper - click here

In the meantime you can uninstall the ice maker to make it stop making ice so you can run the fridge.
