Default Flushing mold from in refrigerator water line
Model Number: SDI25FL   Brand: Amana   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


How can I flush and decontaminate mold from the coiled up hose inside the refrigerator that feeds the in-door ice maker and water dispenser? The refrigerator sat for a year and the hose laying inside the box behind the veg bin is full of mold. There is only one disconnect in view. I would rather not replace the whole hose assembly if I could figure a way to get chlorinated water into the system. Thanks for your advice.

You can disconnect the line where it comes out of the water inlet valve and try to pour the solution in there, let it sit and then flush it out by running water through it with the water dispenser.
