Winterizing Maytag residential refrigerator
During the coach winterization I'm always a little hesitant on how to do the ice maker in the residential frig.
Is it best to :
1: Just turn the ice maker off immediately after an ice dump, possibly
leaving a small amount of water in each cube maker due to melting
process to dump the cubes, and run the water dispenser until pink
stuff appears. Then leave it this way all winter.
2: Or run the water dispenser till pink appears first, then turn ice maker
on so will dump normal ice and refill with pink then let the pink
dump later so cube sections will be empty all winter (assuming the
slushy pink cube will be solid enough to dump - never tried this). This will
probably leave some pink liquid in bottom of each ice cube form for the winter.
Never know if any fluid left in ice cube sections all winter can cause any damage or flaking off of material in the sections. In our last house ice maker after a few years it looked like little metalic spots flaked off on cubes.
