Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

There is a smell coming from my KitchenAid Superba refrigerator and it smells like glue. I've changed the filter and the ice maker was replaced because it stopped working. We thought it was the motor in the ice maker that caused the smell, but now that it is replaced, it is worse. The water is even worse than it was before - it smells like glue. Do you know what it could be? I've cleaned everything out of the frig. It is cooling ok, no problems there.

    Ice maker mal-formed ice


    no "slug" is available however you could just use a reverse osmosis diaphram pressure tank to boost the water pressure. you can also use a water supply tube to bypass the in-refrigerator completely.

    Ice maker water taste like chlorine but tap tastes fine


    Put a in-line water filter on the water line if you want. The taste is from the food and items you have in the refrigerator. Clean it out and keep your items in proper storage. Ice collects the smells in the line and the fridge. Change your ice that is sitting in the bin, wask out the bin with water and baking soda. Hope this helps.

    Change ice maker filter?


    If you have a silver metal braided line to water source that is your problem. Replace mine with a braided vinyl line and it cured it. ps flush new line for about two minutes.

    Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


    Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
    Hope this will help you.
