Sounds like your ice maker is froze up.
Unless your sure that the solenoid is defective,
1/ check the ice maker and see if it has water in the maker part or does it have ice in there.
2/ If it has ice in there its probably froze up to the incomming line causing the water to flow into the freezer.
2/A/ By unpluging the refrigerator and allowing the ice to melt. This should cure a frozen up refrigerator freezer even though it might be self defrosting.
3/ However if you do need to change the solenoid valve it not to hard you just need to know how to use a phillips screwdriver,cresent wrench,and pliers.
4/ the solenoid is in the back bottom of the refer. Turn off water supply to the refer and unplug refer.
5/ Call or go to sears with your model,serial no.,year and make or refer.
6/ purchase valve , compare to the old part ,then remove and replace if there's a match.
Good Luck,
