ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES

HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER
THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM

I have conpletely emptied and washed the ice cube holder. I threw out all unwrapped and old frozen items. All was either unopened or well sealed. I washed out the freezer with baking soda and rinsed well. I expected the ice to be just as it was in the beginning when the unit was new. The very first time I put the 'fresh ice in a cup with water the taste was there. I have a gadget with charcoal that should be absorbing the stale taste and smell of the ice along with a box of baking soda. None of this has helped. I was so glad to get this icemaker for extra ice and am not able to use the ice at all, It was fine until this last year. This is a Kenmore, top freezer model and almost three years old. I will welcome any suggestions!

Your model will have a filter for it. it is located usually on the fridge side torwarss the top back of the fridge. it sounds like you need to replace the filter. it needs to be replaced every 4 monthes or so to keep the water clean. also you may put some water in a cup from the tap/faucet and make sure it is not the water it's self. if it is you may want to think about also having a water filtration system installed in your home.

We just bought a new frigidare refrigerator with a new icemaker installed its been a week and keep dumping the cubes..terrible taste really no smell though.. any suggestions?


Do not use a metal braided line or a vinyl braided line. Get the plastic ice maker tubing and that will fix it. I learned the hard way and now ice taste great.

ICE CUBE MAKER SMELLY ICE CUBES


Hello margrek
Welcome,

YOU SAID, YOU HAVE KENMORE ELITE BOTTOM FREEZER WITH ICE MAKER THE ICE CUBES SMELL HORRIBLE ALWAYS, I EVEN TOSS THEM OUT EVERY FEW DAYS, STILL SAME PROBLEM


Ice has bad odor and taste.

1• Ice has picked up odor or
flavor from strong food stored
in refrigerator or freezer.
2• Water running to ice maker
has poor taste or odor.
3• Ice not used frequently enough.
4• Cover foods tightly. Discard stale ice. Ice maker will
produce fresh supply.
5• Add filter to water supply line. Consult a water purifying
company.
7• Discard stale ice.

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi there,

sounds like the i/m is making ice. if you have ice in the bucket, it means that the only problem is the dispensor. if you have frost anywhere, the problem is with the actuator, which is the ice pladdle. you may have a broken spring or just the ice paddle need to be replaced.
