How do i disconnect the water supply from my Kenmore stand alone ice maker, without shutting the entire household water supply off. I'm waitingon a recall part

Kenmore 2313855. I have a leak at the point at which the water supply attaches to the ice maker. I'm waiting a week or so to get the new part. I need to stop the water, without shutting off the entire water supply to our house. There is not a shut off valve at the water source. is there any way to shut it off at the ice maker?

If the water connection to the icemaker is leaking and there is not a separate shutoff valve, then there will be no alternative but to shut the water off, to the entire house. If the water supply line to the icemaker is copper, I recommend getting a compression type inline shutoff valve. Simply cut the copper tube and insert the fitting. You will need to know what size the copper line is. It could be 1/4", 5/16" or 3/8". You can get this type of fitting at most any local hardware store. If you don't feel comfortable installing this or any shutoff valve, I recommend having a plumber come out. I'm listing a site you can access. If you do not feel confident in completing this type of project yourself, I recommend that you use a pre-screened professional from the
