I have a GE Side by Side Stainless steel refridgerator which the water continously runs to the icemaker and will not shut off. The refridgerator is only 3yrs old. Does anybody know what is wrong?

The fill valve may hae a chunk of debris such as rust in it. If you disconnect power and water, you might disassemble the valve if it's the type that was screwed together. If it's riveted, you'll have no choice but to replace. In either case, make sure you have a filter in the line so this does not happen again.

If the icemaker has finished a cycle and stopped, or if you unplug the icemaker and the water will still flow in, replace the water fill valve. (the part the incoming water line connects onto) If you post your model number (located on the wall of the fresh foods section of the refrigerator) I'll look up the part number for you.

    The valve is a part number
    WR57X10032 which goes for about $50. The water line filter (pre-valve) that Bat1956 mentioned might be a good idea also. (available at hardware and appliance stores) A bump up on the rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

How do I shut down the water flow to the ice maker


There are three ways.
1. Shut water off to the fridge via plumbing valve.
2. Lift arm on ice maker or use on/off switch depending on ice maker model.
3. Unplug ice maker wiring harness. It won't be able to call for water.
It depends on why you want the water off. A make and model of the fridge would help so I can give you a more specific answer.

GE Profile refrigerator side by side, water and ice through door. Ice maker works fine, water will not shut off. Had to turn water to frig off.


The water inlet valve on the back where the water supply connects to the unit is stuck open. You may can clean the valve out and get it to closing or just replace it.
