Question about Refrigerators

ICE is contaminated but water is clear. The cotamination is a white filmy substance that settles to the bottom of your glass. I have installed a new filter but this does not help the ICE... What is this stuff? How can I fix it? Thanks.

    I have the same problem, but the white, filmy contamination is also in the drinking water.

    I have the same problem, but the white, filmy contamination is also in the drinking water. I replaced the filter and it went away for a couple of months, but now it's back.

Why is the ice from under counter ice machines so much better than refrigerator ice?


Refrigerator ice forms in a mold (think ice tray) made up of not only water, but whatever impurities it may contain. Even safe, municipal water supplies have some sediments and a range of chemicals from treatment. Ice machines create ice from water moving across a freezing surface and the result consists almost totally of water without impurities. So it is much more clear than ice from a mold in the refrigerator. Both systems work well, but the results have marked differences.

Replacement ice maker dispenses ice that has cloudy residue as ice melts


This is a physics issue due to the minerals that are present in your water. When the water is let into the ice maker, the minerals are dissolved in the solution, when the water freezes the molecules are brought closer together and the minerals are squeezed out. When the ice melts the minerals drop down to the bottom of the glass because they are cold and out of solution. The process is called precipitation of solids. The common mineral are lime, calcium, fluoride and many other organic substances. It wont hurt you it just looks bad.

How to get rid of the sediment at the bottom of my glass from the ice


The sediment is the result of the minerals in your tap water precipitating to the bottom of the glass after the drink has sat for awhile. The minerals in the ice cause you ice to be cloudy and not clear. The only way to reduce or eliminate the sediment is to filter the water going to your ice maker and water dispenser.

Have just been experiecingetal or oily tast fro water and ice dispensers. I can see oily substance on top of water. Changed filter and no difference.


Good day,
Unusual problem. It's possible that the dual water valve in the bottom back of the machine is at fault, but only a guess. Changing it may be your first option.
I would also check where your water supply line is tapped into the house supply.
If it's a horizontal line, and the tap in is done on the bottom of the line. I would reinstall the tap in to the 3 or 9 o'clock position or the top if that's possible.
As well, if no luck, I would consider calling your water dept. and have them check for possible water contamination.

Ice with white flakes from refrigerator ice maker


Try setting the freeze temperature down to the initial setting selection. Your freezer is getting to cold. Hope this helps.

Undissolved minerals can appear when ice cubes are added to chilled drinking water. Freezing tap water causes dissolved minerals to solidify and scatter, giving a cloudy appearance. When ice cubes melt, any undissolved minerals settle to the bottom. These mineral compounds in our drinking water are naturally occurring and safe.
Sometimes we see black particles which can be the non-stick surface of the ice mold flaking off.

Sediment at the bottom of my glass of ice water


The sediment is condensed minerals. Applying a filter should fix that problem.

Ice maker on Admiral HMG 62165 side by side


check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.
