Have a problem with my GE IceMaker #WR30X0289.  Ice Maker has recently started to overfill.  Removed it to check operation, etc.  Initially checked to make sure level, etc.  Installation is OK, and it has been working fine for years (until recently).

Don't see any obvious problems internally, but assume there must be a microswitch malfunctioning, etc.  Ice maker seems to want to go thru the filling cycle 2-4 times before water finally shuts off.  Puts quite a bit of extra water into unit, which obviously leaks out all over.

From what I remember (before I disconnected/removed unit).  Think water is supposed to fill twice and ice maker motor goes thru 2 full rotations.  Ice maker now goes thru 4+ full rotations before it finally stops.  Feeler arm seems to be functioning correctly and is not jammed.  Any ideas?  Would rather repair than have to purchase an entire new unit. 

Have you ever heard of this problem before?  Any suggestions on what to check/test/replace?  Or, should I break down and get a new (updated/improved?) unit?  Comments?  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Ken

Sounds like something is wrong inside of the ice maker, I have not seen this before, what you are describing.  Perhaps someone else has seen this and can shed some light on this demented item??/
