Turn off water to fridge?

I have a 2008 Magna.

I don't use the ice or water function. Is there a way to turn off, or cutoff water from reaching the fridge?

Thanks in advance for your help!

You might try going outside and opening the access door to the back of the frig. That's where mine is.

Yes, there is a shut off valve. Finding it can be an issue. Hopefully someone with your unit will chime in with the location. They are all over the place.

Mine is older but I found my shut off on the outside where the refrigerator vent is located.

I assume that an '08 Magna has a residential refrigerator and doesn't have an outside vent. My Allure doesn't. Anyway, my fridge is raised and has two drawers beneath it. I've looked behind them and there isn't a valve there, but I can see the water line. The other end of the water line starts on the passenger side in the bay with my Aqua-Hot. Just above my Aqua-Hot is a fiberglass panel that hides plumbing to the black and grey tanks as well as some fresh water piping. One of those PEX pipes transitions to 1/8" poly water line for the fridge. It would be easy to cut and add a shutoff in that cubby. There may be an access hatch somewhere in another bay that has a shutoff valve but I haven't found it.

The first time I had service work done by way of the outside vent to my refrigerator on my 2000 I learned the wood under the refrigerator was all rotted out because of a leak I turned my Frig water off and never turn it on again. I was told leaks were A fairly common problem. My shut off was very obvious and easy to fine by way of that vent. While in there I also found wasp nests.

I capped the brass pipe behind the access door when I was installing the residential fridge in 2016. But OP's is a 08 Magna, all electric, no access door at the back of the fridge. There are 3 options I see -

(1) Remove the anchors, pull out the fridge and shut off the pipe at the back then reinstall it.
(2) As BonS suggested that find the line and install a shutoff valve.
(3) Take the filter inside the fridge out, block the water pass, make it a dummy filter and put it back in.

The last one is the easiest.
