So there are 2 things you can do to stop the icemaker from cycling if you don't have the water connected. The icemaker is mounted above the ice bucket on the door so if you just flip the switch on the head of the icemaker to the off position, the icemaker will not make ice. If you can't locate the on/off switch on the icemaker, the other thing you can do is remove the ice bucket. The unit will detect that the bucket is not installed and it will not cycle the icemaker.
