How do I clean my ice maker?


Curious, does your refrigerator have a water dispenser? How does water taste from it? Your ref. has one water supply for both ice and water. Changing filter was a good start but if it's been over a month, there's something else going on. I would look and see behind your ref. and look at the water line. I've run across a bad plastic tube that causes a bad taste. If you have a plastic one, change it out with a new one. Also, ice absorbs food odors from both the freezer section and refrigerator sections, so check your fridge for bad food. Bell green peppers are the worst, they'll leave a metallic taste. Good luck!

Bad tasting ice/water/food


Have you put a few boxes of baking soda in the fridge to absorb the pungent odors? Do that.

Water and Ice have tasted like **** since we got the refrigerator (about 1 year ago) I believe the soultion is bypass the storage tank, but I can't find it..


When the Ice Smells
1. Replace water filters every 6 months to avoid musty odors from getting into your ice. If you don't replace the filters, they become clogged with the chemicals they have been removing from the water. In addition to smelly ice, you may see a drop in water pressure if you have a water dispenser, and possibly a decrease in ice cube size.
2. Remove the cap from the new filter.
3. Place the cartridge inside the holder, and twist to the right.

When the ice smells...water & ice have tasted like ***** also.

Good day : )

Have LG LFC237560ST with ice maker problems.Metallic taste, This refrigerator was purchased less than 3 weeks ago. A new waterline was installed by thefolks that sold us the unit. the tech that came to our...


I am an Lg authorized tech. my company was rated the best company in the south eastern united state so i do a lot of lg work. There really isnt to much u can do for the taste of the ice. you can wash the ice maker and if that doesn't work i would have the company come back out and hopefully you will get a guy who is nice and ask him to change out the ice maker but usually if you just was it out it will solve the issue. the ice maker can be taken off fairly easy just two screw that hold it on and a ground screw under the ice maker. you also dont need to be worried about it being anything unhealthy like i said its just the ice maker taste. just try cleaning it. hope this helps

My ice taste like metal and the filter does not need changing


I have a whirlpool refriderator that only makes ice. There is no filter in the fridge itself. The water line in the basement is copper, then it has a valve off of the main line. I originally had installed a stainless steel line running to the refriderator. The order of the ice can be described as a metal tasting taste. I purged the line prior to connecting it. I then replaced it with a pvc line, purging it all so. The taste of metal isn't there but it still has a small taste to it. Prior to having a ice maker, we made ice in ice trays with the sink water and had no issues. Can someone shed some light on this issue please.

Sub Zero 650S with bottom freezer-Ice tastes funny(musty ? taste)


The 650 does not have a filter built into the unit. Any filter would be on the supply line to unit, usually in the basement below the unit, or under the kitchen sink. Do you use alot of ice? If not you may want to empty the bucket every few weeks to let it produce fresh ice.

Ice from ice maker does not taste right


Hi

Ice storage bin needs to be emptied and washed. Unsealed packages in the refrigerator and/or freezer compartments may be transmitting odors/tastes to the ice cubes.
Interior of the refrigerator may need cleaning.
Water chemicals. Installing an in-line filter can help with many odor/taste complaints.
An open box of baking soda in the refrigerator section can help with preventing the transmitting of food odors.
This is a common in-line water filter, they are fairly easy to install and usually come with instructions.

Even when your well or municipal water supply provides healthy, potable water to your ice maker, some impurities may remain. These can affect the smell or taste of the ice cubes, and therefore the beverages in which you serve them. A taste and odor water filter on the incoming water-supply line--such as our charcoal "Universal Replacement Water Filter"--can help a lot.

Also, over time, the ice cube bin can absorb difficult-to-remove odors from the freezer. Some manufactures recommend that you replace the bin every 2 to 3 years, whenever it seems to be retaining objectionable odors and transferring them to the ice cubes.


A Fixya Rating would be appreciated.

Thanks
