Hotwire to thaw frozen fridge waterline Answered
My fridge water dispenser waterline gets frozen from time to time. Im thinking about inserting (and leaving there) a thin piece of wire (insulated, folded by half) through the line with the two ends left out, so when water freezes i will just connect a battery for a few minutes to get the wire warm and thaw the ice. Question is what battery can I use to heat about 25 inches of wire, and what gauge should I use (the thiiner the better). I dont want need too much heat as I dont want to risk melting the plastic water line.
