HI, This will be the result of a failed water inlet valve. There may be debris present in the structure of the valve, that is preventing the valve from closing, correctly. This is know as mechanical failure. This will require you to replace the valve, asap.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source. Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place, and replace the valve.

Testimonial: "Thank you, we have replaced that before so I know right where it is. I will try it and hope for the best!"
With GE it could be a bad water valve, bad microswitch that actuates the water or could be a bad main control board. You can diagnose the valve by simply pulling the wire harness off and turning the water on. If the water starts to flow with the power removed from the valve then the valve is stuck and needs replacing. If the water stopped with the power removed, check the valve's wire harness with a volt meter and see if 115vac is being applied. If so then the switch or the board are bad. You can check the switch by setting your meter to continuity and checking the com part of the switch to either the no or nc part. One should test good for continuity, the other not and with the switches buttong depressed the exact opposite. If the switch test good then the board is bad.
