Green Residue in Icemaker After Cleaning


  • After cleaning the icemaker with the ice maker cleaner there is a green liquid in the ice bin
  • What should be used to clean a green liquid from the bottom of an undercounter ice maker?


Green liquid in the ice bin after running the cleaning cycle could be attributed to a number of factors, such as the frequency of cleaning, color of the cleaner, scale build-up, or copper corrosion of the water supply line.
Clean the ice storage bin by scrubbing the bin with a mixture of the ice maker cleaner and hot water; rinse with hot water.
Refer to the product use and care guide for further information.
