You could have a fill valve not shutting off all of the way, or the microswitch may not be cutting off voltage to the water valve.  Does it do this all of the time or just after you use the disp.  We cannot be of much help without the model number since K.M products are made by many different manufacturers, so this could be about 7 different brands with the Kenmore name on it.

This is a G.E. refrigerator.  It is possible your fill valve is not closing all of the way or something is feeding low voltage to it at all times.  Hard to tell which it might be without going in and doing some testing to these areas.  If you were to un-plug the wires from the side of the fill valve on the back of the box, that feeds the water disp., the side with the 3/8 water line, and the water stopped would be an electrical problem.  If the water kept running then you would know the water valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced.
