Residential Fridge water line shut off?

Sorry, I tried to search for this, but could not find anything meaningful.

I have 390-RB 2014 with residential fridge. Our water line to the ice maker has developed a leak... in the basement about 12 - 20 inches before it turns up to the fridge. The leak is up under a main beam, and I can't get to it.

I've had this repaired earlier... and seems that closing the kitchen slide creates the issue. When we first opened the slide, all was good (water thru the door and ice maker all worked find, no leaks detected). Closed the slide and Old Faithful spewed forth.

As long as the water is hooked up to city or the pump turned on, water gushes from this leak.

It dawned on me last night, that there might be a shut off valve for this, so we can keep the water on until we can get this looked at.

My question is, is there a shut off valve for this and if so, where might it be located?

Thanks in advance for any input...

We are heading to New Mexico for a week, and would love to have running water.

I have a 390bh and my shutoff is in the cabinet under the bathroom sink and is in the cold water line there. I have also seen where the shutoff is in the kitchen under the sink. This one had a square enclosure around it and you have to look into the enclosure to see the shutoff. Not sure if it is in a different spot for the 390 rb.

If worst comes to worst you can always turn the cold water off at the manifold for that area. Jim

My 2015RB had a leak in the refrigerator water line so I thought. What I found was the packing nut in the needle shut off valve was loose and water ran toward the frig. Before you undertake a major task of removing the frig take a 7/16 wrench and tighten the nut. Good luck.

My 34qs has the frig ice maker valve under the bathroom sink. The water was leaking where the hose connects to the frig on the back and at a fitting under the kitchen sink. The only way to get at it was to pull the frig.
