Why are icicles hanging from my ice maker in the freezer?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model number 106.51564102. The icemaker has slowly started to make icicles hanging from the icemaker during the past month. At first, they were small, and then they grew larger every couple of days. Now it forms frozen puddles on the food containers. The ice maker has worked fine for 5 years. It continues to make good ice at its normal pace. Is this a problem with the icemaker or the solenoid valve? Can the ice maker be removed by taking out the three cap screws in the bottom?

I wonder if you could tell me the part number of the water valve that is mentioned above so that I can fix my icicle problem as well? Thanks!

From your description of the problem it sounds like the water valve is the problem. The icemaker you have produces 8 cubes per harvest. The water valve should only give 130cc's of water each time it fills. Unfortunately to cycle this icemaker and check the fill rate is very difficult to accomplish and it is typically more economical to just replace the water valve as most times it takes care of the problem.
