Why does my Magic Chef fridge ice maker dump ice and water into the ice tray?

Magic Chef model# RB191TM serial # 13277745MZ when the ice maker makes ice, it dumps out the ice and it is frozen, but it also dumps out water and creates a large chunk of ice in the ice tray. I cleaned off the coil in the back from dirt and dust. Is the ice maker bad? I need some help.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your question. It is concerning when the refrigerator is not functioning correctly. In the case of this refrigerator, dumping ice and water at the same time, it sounds like the fill contact switch in the module is stuck to the harvest contact switch. If you want to replace the part yourself here is the link to the module which crosses over to the complete icemaker.
