  1. Hi justpasnthru,
    Depending on the icemaker style the water to it is controlled by the module mounted on the front of the icemaker. There are contacts inside that open or close depending on the part of the cycle the icemaker is in. The contacts inside must be stuck closed, because when you turned the power off the voltage stopped going to the valve. If you reply as to the model of refrigerator you have I will assist you in getting it running or give you a link to a new icemaker. Good luck with it.

  2. Hi justpasnthru! That's a fun screen name! Can you post the model number of your fridge? That would be useful in troubleshooting this issue. Check back soon for a response from an Appliance Expert-they will be able to offer a suggestion or two!
