Will an ice maker burn up without water?
P.S. Ice makers left on extended periods without water connected can ruin the ice maker. The reason, is there is a calrod heater molded to the bottom of the ice maker to loosen the cubes. With no water, it will cycle these heaters every 10 minutes or so eventually burning out the heater, which is non-replaceable.
Should you turn off your ice maker?

Why won’t my ice maker shut off?
If it is a water valve issue, then it is an issue with the valve not closing and continuing to distribute water. This will result in frozen drips and frozen puddling in your ice maker. You will want to shut off the water and power to your refrigerator ahead of time.
