Why does the ice from ice maker have an awful smell and taste? Is there a filter that needs to be replaced?


i found that the previous homowners hooked the icemaker to soft water instead of hard water. Once I changed it to hard water, both ice cubes and water tasted fine.

Water would not stop running into icemaker, now


The water inlet valve(where the water supply connects to the back) may have been staying open and now has burned so it don't work at all. . You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it.

Ice maker in refridgerator freezer won't make ice. It seems as if the water is going up into the freezer but no Ice is being produced. The ice tray has frozen ice in it, but it will not dump it in the ice...


Sometimes icemakers get all frozen up, such that the motor cannot turn to eject the ice. Also, in some cases the water supply line freezes up, although that does not sound like your problem.

Try leaving the freezer open to defrost it manually and see if it starts working by itself. Also, the icemaker motors can and do fail. In some cases you smell an acrid burning smell when the motor fails.

Smell in kitchen water


Is your supply line plastic or copper? If its plastic then that can absorb a smell. There is nothing in the icemaker that would make it smell. You may need to replace the supply line and the inlet line that feeds the icemaker. Is there a smell in the kitchen faucett?

Ice maker ice smells


Dump out the ice, let the icemaker refill the ice container, dump all that out as well and then it should be cleaned of whatever was in the line..
You may want to roll the fridge out and visually check the supply lines on the back of the fridge for contamination as well.

Not making ice, indoor water spout working


Check the temperature in the freezer. The temperature must be below 0 degrees for most icemakers to perform properly.

Odor


Replace your water filter and totally clean your icemaker. Check the drip pan under the unit if you can smell it through the whole house. You have more than an icemaker issue.
