I know it can be frustrating when the icemaker stops working. The information you have received from Joseph is good but this appears to be a different problem. Usually when the water overflows like this, the problem will be with the water valve but it could also be a defective icemaker. Unfortunately, without a full model number, I will not be able to provide specific information. A good check for this that may help determine the problem will be to manually cycle the icemaker. To cycle the icemaker listed, pull the front cover off and you will see some test terminals (see picture). Place a well insulated jumper between the T & H terminals and be careful, this is a hot (live) check. The icemaker should start into a cycle. If it doesn't cycle, the door light switch may have to be pressed in. When the icemaker starts into a cycle, remove the jumper after approx. 12 seconds. Toward the end of the cycle it will fill with water and if it starts overflowing, disconnect power from the refrigerator. If the water continues to fill with the power disconnected, it will indicate the water valve is stuck and will need to be replaced. If it does stop filling, it will indicate the icemaker is keeping the valve energized and need to be replaced. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, a complete model and serial number will be needed and any additional details will be helpful.

Thank you for the full model numbers. On this icemaker, there is no other way to start a cycle, other then using the jumper wire. If you can catch it when it goes into a cycle, watch it through to the end. During the last part of the cycle, it will activate the water fill. It should fill for approx. 7.5 seconds. If water continues to fill after this time period, pull the power cord, to see if the water stops. If it does stop, it will indicate the icemaker # D7824706Q is sticking in the fill cycle and will need to be replaced. If the water continues to fill, the water valve # 12490801 will need to be replaced. These parts are available at the link listed below. If you would like to have a technician check this, you can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out. I hope this will help you.
