This might leave some water in the valve itself and don't ask me how I know it will freeze and crack over the winter. I do worry about water left in a filter if there is one.
As far as water in the icemaker itself, there are no pipes and valves in the icemaker unit since it lives in a below freezing environment anyway.
Good stuff. My shut off valve to the fridge is behind the pantry. I'll blow all the air out and disconnect the fridge line there. I'll then turn the ice maker on and let it cycle.
We will be camping this weekend at Put-In-Bay. No need for ice this weekend so I'll do this on Saturday and let it run over night. I'm thinking that should do it.
Is there any chance of burning something up by running it with no water being supplied to the fridge?
I'll pull the filter out as well when this is done.
