How to Remove Hard Water Deposits from an Ice Dispenser ...
Put a paper towel on the tray and pour vinegar on it. Pour enough to saturate the paper towel. Let it sit. You can put a saturated paper towel on the water dispenser. You might have to cover it in foil to keep it on.
Remove the tray..i like to use a solution of dish soap water and alcohol..spray it down let it sit for a couple seconds and wipe it down
I just pop mine out and put it in the dishwasher.
That is hard water deposits you are seeing. Clean it up the best you can with vinegar and maybe a magic eraser. You could use harsher cleaners too . If the tray comes out, it is easier to clean. We have a soft water system and reverse osmosis for the drinking water so we do not have the hard water deposits. However, my mom had this on a refrigerator. We were selling the house and I wanted it to look nice. I cleaned it the best I could and then carefully taped everything off with paper and painters tape. I then used spray paint designed for plastic. I used black. It came out so nice. We stopped using the water at that point since we were listing the home so I don't know how long it would hold up. We ended up selling the fridge on Craigslist after house sold, but we told the buyer what we had done. He was not going to hook up water to the fridge, so he did not care.
Dishwasher about once a month keeps mine clean.
I use vinegar and baking powder made into a paste and an old tooth brush to remove the hard water stains/mineral deposits on mine. I only have to clean mine every few months
Vinegar method is my favourite!
Lime Away or other lime scale remover
Soak in white vinegar. For the parts that don't come off/out wrap in a paper towel soacked with the vinegar and cover with a baggie. Be generous, it's cheap. Tie on for several ours.
Refrigerator repairman showed me this......with a dry microfiber cleaning cloth. Works on tray and the levers.
The vinegar is the best, All great things that work!
Agree with all of above=moved into house that had a stained try and used vinegar and baking soda. Looks like new.
The fridge in our new home was so bad the vinegar didn't work, went to lime-away (still orange) used spray paint. Looks like new.
I tried the vinegar to no avail but CLR helped amazingly!!
I also had a hard time trying to clean mine. I scrubbed most of the paint off. My husband bought silver spray paint and now it looks brand new again.
If the refrigerator is leaking water, then the problem can be a gasket, the water inlet valve (which supplies the refrigerator with water and ice with dispensable water), or even the ice maker. Water on the kitchen floor? What about the pool that is growing on the floor inside the refrigerator? This common problem is usually easy to fix because there are only a few potential offenders: your door gasket, defrost drain and drain pan.
