Bad tasting water and ice from fridge and kitchen tap...

Over the past 6-8 months, we have noticed a bad taste in our water that comes from the kitchen tap, as well as from our refrigerator water and ice. The taste is sort of like an old or stale water taste - like what you would expect it to taste like if it sat in some sort of weird container for several months. Possibly metallic? The water that comes from our bathroom sinks does not have this taste. We suspect maybe it is our ice maker line, but this is clearly speculation and we only think this because we can't think of what else it would be. To give you more detail, our ice maker line is a thin copper line that is tapped into our main water supply. Any ideas on what could be causing our bad tasting water?

My BI95 ice maker freezes and has water flow, the mould maker fills, the water continues to run into the bucket and it freezes solid. I changed the mould maker and water valve. The problem remains

If water keeps running after the fill cycle is usually indicates a bad fridge inlet valve. This valve controls the amount of water going into your icemaker. It is found where the water line goes into the fridge, usually in the back of the fridge at the bottom. You would need to cut the power to the fridge, turn off the water supply going into the fridge and remove a panel to get to it. You can check out online what a fridge water inlet valve looks like so you can identify it. It usually has 1-2 water lines going into it and 1-2 wire harnesses attached. You can buy new ones at a appliance parts store or online.

No water to ice tray

Check water supply and pressure is. o.k (behind the fridge). The ice maker water solenoid is located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.Disconnect the tubing that goes up to the ice maker, and wait for it to cycle.You may have to cycle it manually.
If the solenoid buzzes but no water comes out, the solenoid is bad. Replace thesolenoid.
(Solenoid will get energized only when previous ice made cubes are not disturbing the shut off arm. Hence make sure you have emptied the ice bucket)

You have biologics growing within the water circuit somewhere. Shut off the water valve and remove the hose from the valve and the fridge so you can empty it; make a 2 tbls. bleach per gallon of water solution and clean out the hose by soaking. Retain some of the disinfectant within the hose when re-attaching so that it flows through the rest of the system. I would recommend replacing the filter if yours has one (some do not). Open the valve and make a tray or two of ice, repeat if needed to kill the algea.

We had a new kitchen faucet put in today and the water tastes terrible now. Can we do something?

Nothing other than let the water run at 1/4 throttle in an attempt to clear the nasty tasting water from the supply lines. Let it run for maybe an hour and taste it again.

Working on the lines might have shook loose the foul taste way back up the system. I would hope an hour would clear it but it may take more.

Some cities with less than perfect water will flush their supply lines by opening fire hydrants in a certain pattern designed to shake loose deposits from inside the supply pipes. They often report that people have bad tasting water for days afterwards - perhaps in a few days you might get your relief too?

Bad taste and smell in water at kitchen sink faucet

Check your water filter inside the unit up in either the left or right side of the top. If you do not have a filter then add a filter to the unit on the supply line to help with this problem

Ice machine has oily film in water resevoir

There must be something coming in the water line. The only other possible source for this contamination would be some lube coming down from the circulation pump. This is an easy part to change but you could pull the white cover (back right side of trough) to have a look at it.
