there is an arm on the side of the ice maker (wire arm) you lift it up all the way to shut this off, if that doesnt work you most likely have a stripped gear in the module, if you can stop it you will need to remove it, there are 2 screws on the top if you look at the picture you can see the hangers the screws do through, and usually there is one on the bottom also, remove those and the unplug the ice maker from the connector, this will completly eliminate the ice maker and water valve from running, hope this helps, thanks Bryan

will I need to disconnect the water line or will the water stop entering the freezer?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
it will stop if the ice maker shuts off by lifting the arm or removing the ice maker. the water valve will no longer get power from the ice maker. if you wish to replace the ice maker you can order one at this blue link. thanks Bryan

Does every reply cost me $30.00 ?? If I shut the water off to the ice maker will that stop it from running?? will it damage the refrigerator ??

Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.

Know each reply doesn't cost $30.00, when we are finished you need to press the accept button and you will be charged only $30.00, you can't just shut the water off because the icemaker is going to try to keep running it won't damage the refrigerator itself but it will drive you crazy, shut the water off will keep any water from coming in to the icemaker yes but it still going to make noise, like it's trying to run, eventually it'll burnout valve so if you can either shut the icemaker off way I said or take it out this. That, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
