HOW TO CLEAN AN ICE AND WATER MAKER IN A REFRIGERATOR
How to Clean an Ice and Water Maker in a Refrigerator A refrigerator ice maker and water dispenser are fun features that sometimes get overlooked during routine kitchen cleaning. They do require regular maintenance, especially in areas with hard water as lime deposits may clog lines and dispensers or cause white stains to build up around nozzles. Most refrigerators require deep cleaning every six to 12 months. Let’s see how to do it. What You’ll Need: Screwdriver Small funnel White distilled vinegar Clothespins Empty bowl Flashlight Clean rags Cotton balls or swabs Steps:
- Shut off the water valve that feeds the water-dispenser and ice-maker lines by turning clockwise. Use a screwdriver to remove the screw affixed to the plastic/copper tubing water lines. Remove the ice-maker line completely, but leave the dispenser line attached to the dispenser door nozzle.
