The downspouts themselves might be blocked.

If your gutters overflow when they are cleaned, it is possible that the downspouts are clogged with dirt. You can pour water from a hose directly into the downspout to see if it flows as required. Check also to ensure that the gutters are slopped properly. Improper slope can be corrected by lowering the positions of the brackets that support the gutters.

You may need to add another down spout. Or the gutter might not be pitched properly. Also check if the down spouts are clogged.
