Probably the solenoid valve leaks(electric valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water) and overflood the ice maker,the only way to fix this is replacing the solenoid.

Hi and wlecome to FixYa, I am Kelly. You really have 2 problems.... 1 the inlet water valve has failed causing the water in the ice tray. The only remedy for this is to replace the inlet water valve. If you can squeeze the rubber fill tube at the back of the icemaker and it is / was frozen solid the inlet water valve is for sure bad.
Turn off the water supply to the ice maker until the water valve is replaced or the current problems you have WILL repeat.

The other problem you have is due to the door being open the evaporator coils iced up big time and the normal defrosting process is not removing all of the ice. Unplug the unit and direct a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours with the freezer contents removed. While the unit is manually defrosting... open the back of the unit by removing the lower fiberboard cover and clean the condensor coils and fan along with the drip pan / tray.

After 2 hours clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service. It should work just fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

The fill valve for the ice maker could be stuck partially open and dripping into the ice maker. If this is the case shut off the water line to the ice maker and if the water stops you will need to replace the ice maker fill vavle

GE Monogram refrigerator/freezer problem/ice dam in ice maker


I have had the same problem with ice forming. I found the problem is from the ice maker. The water fill tube delivers water to a plastic piece that acts like a funnel. The water goes through this plastic piece into the ice maker. Ice forms in the plastic funnel piece causing the water to overflow into the ice bin and freezer.

Ice maker won't stop dripping


If your i/m is dripping you most likely have a crack in the ice mold, you should replace the ice maker.

Ice maker freezing up


The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.

Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing


Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck
