    I hook air compressor at 40 psi to water connection (set on city) and blow out all the lines including ice maker. Then **** off line to ice maker and winterize camper with antifreeze.


    Regards,
    Tony

    If a Residential Refrigerator, there are a few more things in addition to the water feed line. Check out our Residential Refrigerator user guide for details. The refrigerator specifics are for a Frigidaire, but your refrigerator is probably similar.

    Depending on what state you live in this process could take two maybe three days.

    On my Frigidaire, the water will not pass thru without the filter in place, so I took the old filter out and cut the end off and took the insides out. Then glued it back together, so now I can fake out the Frigidaire and blow air through the entire system.
