There is not another water valve, but this unit is sort of known for this problem and the issue is that the icemaker will cycle twice and overfill. The front interface display board is what controls the icemaker on this model and the logic inside the board has been updated. You would need to replace the front board if it's started overfilling and double cycling the icemaker or filling too long. Below is a link to the board you'd need and it's about $200.
