ice maker spews water into the freezer compartment. Ice maker seems to work properly, but fill tube spews water at the back of the ice maker, it doesn't leak after shutting off or fail to shut off.

Two things come to mind. 1. Check for any ice in the fill-tube 2. Carefully pry the front cover off the ice maker. On the top right you will see a screw sideways and above it a + and- sign. This is the fill adjustment screw.
