I have a Therminator that has not been used in a while. I have flushed it forward and backward for several hours each way. Still find bits of debris.
I have read about Baking them in an oven. Some suggest a Clean cycle in an electric oven. That would be OK mine is electric. Some suggest 350*. I have contacted John Blichman about the baking idea and he does not advise it. His position is to flush. I've spent hours flushing and am ready to try another method.
But I also don't want to ruin my chiller in the process. So I ask, what do you advise?
One more thing, rather trivial but none the less. I would rather not burn the sticker off the Therminator if not necessary. I'm guessing the oven method will do that for sure. I'd buy a package of stickers if I could. I just like to keep things looking good as new. But if the oven is the way, function before beauty in this case.
Sorry for the spelling. I lost my spellcheck function. Another thing I got to deal with.
