The owner of the refrigerator lives in Delaware and goes to Florida in the winter I want to drain all the water from the refrigerator so that it doesn't freeze

Tried calling you. If this refrigerator has ice and water dispenser in the door the best way to get rid of the water is to connect an air compressor to the 1/4 line that goes to the fridge from the house water and with the fridge plugged in hold a glass under the water dispenser until all the water is out and only air is coming from the dispenser.
