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.

Kenmore fridge with a strong chemical taste in water and ice


Every time you replace a water filter you want to purge about 3-4 gallons. Or maybe the filter was bad.

Ice from dispenser tastes bad...almost a chemical taste...any suggestions? Thanks...


Do not use a steel or plastic braided supply line. They make the ice taste bad.

Ice tastes funny all of a sudden.


you need to throw out the ice. ice gets stale after a couple of weeks , so toss the old ice. also is there something like garlic or another food that has a strong oder uncovered in your refrigerator section? air flow covers all of the unit, both refrigerator and freezer sections. if your refrigerator is not smelly , put an open box of arm hammer baking soda on a shelf in both sections of the refrigerater. if water and ice still taste funny shut off water supply and check the filter at the rear in the lower part of the unit. take off connecter and visibly check the strainer in the water valve,clean it out by removing it and rinsing it under the sink faucet. make sure that water from other faucets taste ok . the only thing left is to flush out the water tank by filling up glasses of water until the water gets room temperature . that's about all you can do short of replacing the water line leading to the refrigerator, although i have never had to do that before. 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!
