  2. Disconnect the water supply line from the water inlet.

  3. Shut off the electric supply at the main electrical power source.

  4. Take out the ice storage bin to remove any remaining ice and water. Dry the bin.

  5. Pull off the drainage tube of the water trough to drain off all water.

  6. Leave the door open to allow for circulation and to prevent mold and mildew.

  7. Leave water supply line and power cord disconnected until ready to reuse.
