Do you have a 12v or residential fridge. No such thing as 12v residential and there is a difference on winterization.

For my residential I hook up an air compressor to dry winterize and let the fridge run for about 2 or 3 hours so the ice maker cycles and the air blows out all the water. I then connect up antifreeze for wet winterizing and keep that going until I see a few pick slush cubes.

It takes time.

We just ran the pink stuff through it like everything else in the system.
Afterwards, let it cycle enough to clear it out. It's non-toxic.

I don't use the pink stuff other than in ptraps and opt to use a compressor to blow all water out and winterize. It typically works well, and we get to below zero F up here in northern NM a couple of times a winter.

This method is fully incompatible with a residential fridge. The back of the fridge blew out the first time we took the fridge out after winterizing - the compressed water didn't blow clear through the icemaker and there's no good drain under it.

I've considered adding a high point valve to allow air in so water will drain, but we simply don't use the icemaker enough to justify the effort.



So... use the pink stuff or disconnect it! Lots of wisdom from EA37TS and Gritz.

We use the pink stuff and run it thru the icemaker.
There is a video that shows the jump wire sequence to accomplish this.
I keep the jumper wire in the ice maker face place and marked the 2 holes to jump. Works very well and no issues thus far.
