Winterizing Frig...

Winterized the MH, 2011 AC Revolution with Whirlpool Frig, ice maker and water dispenser, for the life of me I can't get RV antifreeze to pass thru the water dispenser , or any water for that matter. Have winterized the same since 2011 and haven't had a problem. Yes, I removed the cartridge filter, turned frig on/off, let it get to temp, turned ice maker on/off. No luck, any ideas out there in IRV2 land????

Thanks
Ron K.

Never had an occasion to turn it off. Disconnected lines to the frig and tried air pressure into the frig, from the frig to the disconnected line at the water feed point. No luck. Obviously there is a block in the line somewhere or the relay, which I can hear activate when I push the water glass fill is faulty.
Short of pulling the frig I'm out of ideas.
Thanks

If it has a filter, you have to put the filter bypass plug in. Also. I wouldn't put RV antifreeze in the fridge, air is good enough. Use low pressure and activate the water and ice dispensers until all the water is out. Air or anti freeze won't pass through the fridge unless the water solenoid is activated. If you can't hear it opening and closing it may be the source of your problem.

Don't ya just hate it when something hasn't worked for a couple days then all of a sudden starts working again. Went out yesterday and started "working" on my, no water thru the water dispenser, pushed on the dispenser and heard gurgling. A few seconds later water flow then pink antifreeze. No change other than threatening to pull the frig to look at the flow valve. Now ready to put it in storage and will see what happens with it when we get to Florida in January
I think I've just about had all I can take this time around, 8 new lifeline AGMs, 8 new Michelins, wax job, winterizing and finally ready for storage!!
