Water Turn Off Valve for Ice Machine?

Has anyone implemented a water shut off valve for an ice machine? I want to leave the cooling aspect of the machine running but be able to turn off the water so that we’re not making a bunch of ice, only to have it melt, while we’re away from home for a period of time.

Kind of curious if there would be any issues with shutting water off only and leaving the rest of the machine running.

Brand and model of the machine?

Some of these are designed so that you do have to leave the water flow available or the motor can be damaged. while others simply automatically shut off if there’s no incoming water. But it’s going to depend on the specific model.
