Icemaker in brand new fridge makes ice that tastes like mildew

We washed out the ice bin, so it's not that. It's a side-by-side GE with ice maker/water. Any help would be appreciated!

Could it be the plastic hose that runs to the ice maker from the water supply???? My brand new fridge also has water that tastes and smells like mildew. I have dumped several bins of ice but the problem persists. Ice I make out of the tap in ice cube trays does not have this taste... so it is no my water. I thought maybe I should replace the plastic tubing for copper????? Think that would help????

Brand new?OK...first,did you flush the water filter by dispencing 2 pitchers of water through the door.wait,that it.basicly the water in your ice maker is the same water that comes out of your tap.you may find that you dont like the filtered water, there should be a bypass plug that can go in place of the filter.solution wise thats about it.

Ge fridge is not making ice at all


Make sure the wire arm is in the down position. If it is in the up position this signals the icemaker that the bin is full and icemaker shutsn off. Hope this helps.

You have biologics growing within the water circuit somewhere. Shut off the water valve and remove the hose from the valve and the fridge so you can empty it; make a 2 tbls. bleach per gallon of water solution and clean out the hose by soaking. Retain some of the disinfectant within the hose when re-attaching so that it flows through the rest of the system. I would recommend replacing the filter if yours has one (some do not). Open the valve and make a tray or two of ice, repeat if needed to kill the algea.

GE PSS26GRE SS not dispensing ice


Hi,
The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed.
If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

I have a PSS26 ge profile fridge and it quit making ice


The icemaker is bad . You have an electronic icemaker and the internal boards cannot take the freezing and the heat (freezing moisture) . Just replace the icemaker .

Ice maker water taste like chlorine but tap tastes fine


Put a in-line water filter on the water line if you want. The taste is from the food and items you have in the refrigerator. Clean it out and keep your items in proper storage. Ice collects the smells in the line and the fridge. Change your ice that is sitting in the bin, wask out the bin with water and baking soda. Hope this helps.
