Orange flakes like a thin scrapes of wax show up in ice and water

Refrig not used for a year. Now 2 new filters tried. Thin flakes of orange "stuff" in water and ice. House water is clear. Problem seems to be after the filter. What/where could this be happening?

There was water in the lines that evaporated and this is the residue that was left. If you gan get to the inlet, put some full strength white vinegar in it and let it soak for 10 - 30 minutes. This will soften and break loose the remaining deposits. Connect the water supply and flush well.

Paint flaked off. How to repaint?


Scrape off any loose paint. Sand it down, removing any rust. Use an enamel spray paint primer first. Then finish with a good quality exterior spray paint like rustoleum. Put on a few thin layers of paint allowing it to dry between coats.

Our Whirlpool Refrig GD25DFXFW02 is working fine our problem is the ice maker , the cubes contain white flakes, is there a coating on the ice maker that could be chipping off> We have changed the filter...


The inside coating has come off the inside of the ice maker . The white " flakes " is calcium deposits , sticking to the exposed cast metal , inside the ice maker , and sticking to the cubes , after water freezing in the mold . You need to replace the ice maker .
