Ice maker is leaking water and causing the ice to freeze?

This problem is faced  by many other refrigerator users.The ice maker assembly needs to be removed and inspected.If the ice maker assembly is cracked then it has to be replaced,.
If not then re seat the assembly and check.
If you notice its overflowing and due to that its leaking water,then its faulty water inlet valve,that has to be replaced.
But if its not overflowing and water is leaking from ice maker assembly itself.Then it has to be replaced.
Replacing ice maker assembly on most of the refrigerator is not very difficult and procedure is near to same.But not exactly same.On some models there is clips holding the parts and on some models there are screws holding parts.Many a times screws are hidden and difficult to see.

One of the user who replaced ice maker assembly has mentioned the procedure to replace ice-maker,Go through this procedure :---

First  remove the Ice bin. Then loosen the ice bin rail under the ice maker and remove the screw attached to the bottom of the ice maker to the side of the fridge. I unplugged the power to Ice Maker from the back of the fridge and unscreewed the two screws that secured the ice maker to the fridge. This allowed the Ice Maker to be removed from the fridge. To replace the new ice maker I simply repeated the steps in reverse.Be careful that you place the ice maker assembly in proper position and not in tilted or wrong position.Do it gently,slowly and carefully.
