I was persuaded to purchase a Crosley CRSE263TW side by side fridge last year. The fridge has worked perfectly, until appox. 2 weeks ago when the ice maker suddenly stopped making ice. Not knowing much about appliances, I simply began to purchase a bag of ice to fill the ice tray. Last night before bed, I heard water and rushed to see where it was coming from. The water was pouring out of the ice dispenser in the door of the freezer. I used a small container to catch the running water from the ice make and closed the shut off valve for our entire home and turned the ice maker to "off". When the water quite running from the ice maker, I cleaned the water up around the fridge, moved the unit to clean under it, then also shut the ice maker water line off. I then turned our main(whole home) water back on. I have read that there was a possible clog that caused the water to run from the icemaker. Now I am concerned about what damage could have occurred to the ice maker with the amount of water that poured from the fridge door and ice machine. I thought I would ask advice here to see if anything jumps out to someone that has dealt with these type of issue before.
Thank you in advance,
Jason

it sounds like you either have a bad inlet water valve or possibly a bad icemaker that stuck in the position that calls for water 
this is the inlet valve for your model https://www.appliancezone.com/242252702-frigidaire-refrigerator-water-inlet-valve/
and this is the icemaker for your model https://www.appliancezone.com/241798224-frigidaire-refrigerator-ice-maker/
