The ice tastes funny, what could be the issue?


Your water filter needs replacing?

If you are at a cottage or using well water, it often contains iron which DOES taste odd.

Commercial ice makers recommend that you clean the system every 3 months.

Take some ice and put it in a saucepan and boil it until it runs dry. WATCH IT NEAR THE END AND DONT LEAVE IT! See what is left and the colour.

Ice taste funny with black specks on it, need to know how to clean ice maker


You will not be able to clean it....the coating is coming off the mold. You will need to replace the icemaker It is easily replaced by removing three 1/4" screws and unplugging the old icemaker. The new one will plug in exactly the same and install exactly the same. You should have no trouble replacing this yourself.

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty


The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

Ice taste funny and is smelly; What must I do?


Actually GE's Website provided the answer for me. It offered a few possibilities and I determined that we had not been using much ice for a while and the ice in the tray apparently had been sitting a long time (old). I dumped all the ice from the tray, cleaned the tray, cleaned the door receptacle by running some distilled white vinegar and warm distilled water through the door area receptacle and now the ice is fine. The smell is gone and the taste is better.

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.

Ice maker's ice taste funny


You may consider pulling out the ice maker and tossing it in the trash if you look at it and see that where the ice sits it's corroded or its close to a 10 year old in age (IT'S DUE TO GO OUT ANYWAY).Other than that:you have a 3% chance that the tube that goes to your ice maker is bad.

Freezer burn on ice-cubes


Black mould around the freezer seal is normal if it has built up over a long period of time or has stood in damp environments. Normally hot soapy water can clear this right up. The ice taste would probably be resolved by fitting or changing the water filter, and / or cleaning the ice maker module located at the top of the freezer section and any route that the ice would take. Cleaning solutions for ice makers are available you just might need to call a local engineer for some advice on where to get some in your area. Hope this helps.
