If you're talking about the ice maker The ice maker hangs on the wall with three screws. two at the top and one at the bottom. Just loosen these screws and the ice maker will lift off the bracket and you can then reach the wiring harness to unplug it.

If you are talking about the ice bin...Just take it out.

The white Residue may be mineral deposits, such as lime and /or calcium deposits. There are products on the market such as 'Lime Away' or ' CLR' that remove mineral deposits. They can be found in any supermarket in the cleaning/laundry isle

Steam holes on the plate are letting out limescale onto clothes, is there a way to clean out iron


Yes you fill the Iron with White Vinegar (the acidic Vinegar dissolves the lime deposits), and then flush with hot water, then clean the bottom with CLR (Calcium Lime and Rust remover) brand cleaner from any hardware store. This also is how deposits are cleaned out of a Coffee pot.

WHITE RESIDUE ON BLACK SINK do I need to seal the sink? aor how do you clean it?


It is probably only calcium deposits from hard water. 'Lime Away' will remove such deposits easily.
Black may be beautiful in the showroom or on people but not very practical for household stuff; we will never buy black kitchen appliances again.

I would like to clean off the calcium deposits that are in the dishwasher. How can I do this or what product should I use.


there are few things you can do to remove the calcium deposits.....

Change the detergent you use. Powdered dishwasher detergent is more efficient in removing grease and oil than gels. Decreasing the gunk left on surfaces may help slow lime scale buildup.


Put a quart of vinegar or lemon juice in the bottom of an empty dishwasher and run it up to the "dry" cycle once a month to keep up with accumulating scale. Extended exposure to mild acid and hot water dissolves most scale.


Clean circulator arms with vinegar or lemon juice and a vegetable brush or toothbrush. Let the acid sit on the scale before scrubbing. Use a needle or hat pin to pierce clogged holes, then rinse by running a cycle with vinegar.


Use plain salt or baking soda to scour surfaces with a sponge or rag. Rinse with boiling water or run a cycle with an empty dishwasher. Do not run the dry cycle.

    What do I use to clean the calcium deposits in the ice maker? The note inside the machine says to use a bottle of Nickel safe ice machine cleaner by Nu Calgon.....Home Depot doesn't have it....Target...


    CLR will work great, just rinse the ice maker very well after cleaning the calcium deposits and throw out the first few batches or bins of ice produced after the cleaning process. Good luck !

    Spots on freezer door


    Use a product like lime-away may help. These water spots are caused from calcium buildup. Lime-away or similar product will dissolve the calcium. Then use the stainless cleaner on it.
