Water supply for Frigidaire fridge - how to deal with?
So my previous Frigidaire has died, and they are bringing me a brand new one. Here's the question. I have the water supply going to the icemaker right now. When I pull out the fridge, I see no valves in the back going into the wall... so I have no way of stopping the water. The stipulation from the store is that the fridge has to be disconnected. What should I do? I am not 100% certain where the overall apartment water stop is......... is there perhaps something I can screw into the existing water line to stop water leaking while they replace the fridge?
It looked a bit like a cable modem valve (I couldn't take it off to look cause water started coming out), so I thought of screwing in a male to male cable modem (RG-8 / UHF) .. something like this:
I'm not sure if that works. Any opinions appreciated...

So you live in a apartment and don't know where the water supply comes from to turn it off?
The apartment maintenance person should know where it turns off at, if all alse fails you should have a main water shut off to you apartment, that will shut the water off to everything in your apartment so you can hook the new refrigerator up.
That part you posted above I have no clue about that, sorry.
