I need to winterize my icemaker during the winter when I closed a summer house. I was considering blowing compressed air throught the water line that feeds the ice maker. To do this I need to energize the water value so that I could blow out the water through from the supply to the ice maker itself. Does the water valve activate with 120VAC? Does this seem like a viable way to winterized the ice maker?
To get the water out of the line going to the icemaker you would just need to disconnect the water line from the valve. Once disconnected the water should free flow out of the line. To get the water out of the valve, disconnect the supply line and keep the icemaker line free. Cycle the icemaker and the water in the valve will come out when the valve activates.
