first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.
another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..
Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.

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. Please Rate This !

Drain line froze.
Used hair dryer to thaw frozen line, works OK now. 01/07/09
Think the frozen drain line was caused by the light in the refrigerator not shutting off when the door closes, causing excess cooling in the freezer. Poor design on the light shutoff switch, corrected design to make permanent repair

If it's a frost free model, it could be caused by a plugged defrost drain. Every time it goes through a defrost cycle the water is supposed to drain into the compressor compartment. You can defrost it by unplugging it for a day or two and then remove the panel covering the evaporator coil. You should be able to see the drain tray under the coil and find out whats blocking it.

You have a defrost problem. No biggie. Check your heaters first, then your t-stat and timer. After a year, you may need to repalce all three parts as after time, the ice takes out other parts if they are not changed right away. You will need to make sure the unit is completely thawed out before replacing parts for optimum use. Call or email us for the part that you need and we'll be sure to get them to you right away! Hope this solves all your problems.
