Question about Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator
Kenmore 10656713500. we have not been able to use the water or ice for a year now. We had to change some computer board. Did that. Then the freezer/fridge had a metallic/fish odor, causing everything to taste horrible. we changed out the tubing and filters but we still have bad tasting ice/water. I cannot leave anything in the freezer for longer than a few wks or it has the same taste (metallic/fishy). This has been a year. Help
Have you put a few boxes of baking soda in the fridge to absorb the pungent odors? Do that.

SOURCE: Bad water & ice cube taste
Hello redwood City
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.
First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE
When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.
Let me know what works,
Thank You ,

I had a similar problem and I was able to get rid of it by replacing the copper lines that go to the refrigerator with plastic ones. It didn't make any sense to me since the pipes are all copper, but the taste is gone and hasn't come back.
