SOURCE: 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.

freon has no smell or taste and in any case doesn't get anywhere near the water. look elsewhere like your water supply

SOURCE: 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.

Add a cap of Miltons or a couple of granules of pool chlorine. Allow it to stand for a couple of hours and then drain.

Water out is very salty(?)


FOUL TASTE OR SMELL IN ICE OR WATER FROM FRIDGE

Check ice and water filter: If equipped, the Ice and Water filter in your refrigerator is responsible for removing any debris or contaminants from your water that may still remain after local water treatment. Most filters contain and are made up of carbon and fabric filter. Over time, the filter may become restricted and reduce the water flow to the ice maker, causing a symptom of little or no ice. Most manufacturers recommend replacing the filter every 6 months but local water conditions may require that you replace more frequently.

Kenmore refrigerator model# 70192001 has funny chemical tasting ice


Do you have a water filter, either inline or inside the fridge side? There is nothing in the water lines or valves within the fridge that will contribute to chemical taste. Unless it's just been connected and the line was dirty. It's either your water supply, and if so install a quality inline water filter will help. Some times if the fridge filter is clogged the water flow to the ice maker is restricted and little bubbles get trapped in the ice and they taste off. You should have crystal clear ice. If not get a filter.

Bad tasting water and ice from refridgerator.


i agree with rpbuice but in addition to flushing the water line you may need to replace the line then using the water dispencer run out about a gallon of water thru the door. this will clear the reservoir of bad tasting water. for the i/m throw out all of your ice then let it make a couple of batches and throw out that ice as well be sure to clean your ice bucket very good to remove any lingering tastes from the old ice.
fyi bad tasting water is generally from bad water supplies. good luck..

Ice maker filter


No, they do not. If the ice is old it can absorb taste from the air. You can also buy an in-line filter for your unit. Hope this helps!

Ice Maker


First, are you getting water at the door? If not, the filter is installed wrong or there is some packing on the filter you didn't remove.
