Question about Amana SXD524VW Side by Side Refrigerator
Helloo, The water system (Amana SXD524VW) gets a growth of a green like parts ? in the tubes and in the water tank. I'm not sure how to clean it out. Is there is a way to get the tank out and clean it? User Manual will help?. Thanks david
A possible solution is depending on your water source... Chlorine will kill the algae, mold & mildew but the filter blocks chlorine. What we tell people is if you have chlorinated water, remove the filter (a bypass device may be needed depending on the make/model) and run without the filter for a week or so. The chlorine will kill all that stuff and then you can run the filter again. If you don't have chlorinated water you would have to mix a solution of bleach/water in a tank of some type and then use a pump (usually a Sur-Flo RV type pump) to supply the pressure and run a few gallons of chlorinated water through the system (again without filter) then let it sit 24 hours to kill the gunk. After that hook up to normal water supply and flush the system until there is no chlorine smell. The ratios for bleach/water, etc. are available on the internet if you "Google" the process.
