Question about Refrigerators
My freezer ice maker is throwing machine oil into the ice. I am afraid this might have been going on for several years and that we ingested the oil, because when I smelled the frank green oil that is now coming into my ice, it smelled just like the off smell my ice has always had. I once had the machine serviced and complained about the off smell of the ice and was told that the smell had to do with the water supply in my municipality. I hope this oil is not cancerous. I also wonder what to do about this problem.
The reason I wanted your model number is to see if your fridge has a built in filter. It doesn't. Have you considered connecting one to your incoming water line? You can find one here or at any local hardware store (Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, etc...).
Your ice maker won't introduce oil into your ice. Neither will your water inlet valve. So the source of you contaminant must be coming from your incoming water supply.
