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.

Ice maker is leaking water.


hi John.
Troubleshooting an Ice Maker That Leaks

When troubleshooting ice maker there are a lot of different things to be aware of. Ice makers are very useful when working correctly, however if there are any problems, it's important to fix these as quickly as possible. One common problem with ice makers is that they can leak. A leaking ice maker can be a result of a number of different reasons.
You will need to put your detective's cap on in order to inspect and diagnose what is actually causing the problem with your ice maker.
Checking Your Refrigerator For the ice maker to work properly it needs to be perfectly level. If it isn't level, this can cause leakage.
Before leveling the freezer you should unplug it so that you can work on it safely. Check that the freezer is perfectly level by placing a spirit level on top of the freezer from side to side. The leveling feet can then be adjusted by twisting them to raise and lower them. Continue this until the freezer is aligned properly from left to right.
Then repeat the process by putting your spirit level from front to back to ensure the freezer is completely level.
Ice Maker Level The ice maker unit itself can also be leveled. This is inside the unit and can be repositioned if needed. Loosen the mounting screws and align the ice maker unit so that it is perfectly level. After leveling, ensure that the mounting screws are tightened to prevent the ice maker from moving.
Water Supply Line The water supply line could also be damaged or broken. This is the tube that is behind your freezer. It's a fairly strong tube and is susceptible to damage. Check that the pipe isn't pinched or kinked.
Fill Cup When water enters your freezer it will be put into the fill cup. This is a funnel that directs the water into the ice cube molds. If this isn't aligned correctly, it can cause problems with leaks.
If you see any ice forming on the fill cup, this could be because the valve is not working properly.
Inlet Switch Remove the inlet switch and inspect it for signs of corrosion or damage. If any of the terminals have corroded, you will need to replace them. Using a multimeter, you can check that the switch is working properly. Press the switch and check that it connects and reduces the resistance as it should.
Inlet Valve If you are testing the inlet valve, you must first disconnect the power so it's safe to work on your freezer. The inlet valve is located in the bottom of the freezer. Turn the water off at the source and then disconnect the supply line. Use a bucket to catch all of the water from inside the inlet valve.

Label the location of all the wires and disconnect them. You will also need to remove the inlet supply tubes. Using a multimeter, check the resistance of the coil. Also inspect the mechanical functioning of the inlet valve, as it can fail mechanically as well as electronically.
After following this troubleshooting guide for your ice maker that leaks will get you back in business. Now you can enjoy a cold beverage for your hard work!
Comments Troubleshooting an Ice Maker: Ice Tastes Bad
Shares
When troubleshooting ice makers there are a number of steps that you can take to find the cause of the problem and put it right. One common problem is when the ice doesn't taste right. If the ice tastes bad, then there can be a number of reasons for this.
When working out why the ice tastes bad there are several things that you will need to consider. The problem could also be caused by one or more of the factors that could make solving it slightly move complicated.
Washing the Ice Bin The ice bin is the container that stores the ice, if this becomes dirty or moldy it can make the ice taste nasty. Simply taking the ice bin out of the freezer and then washing it will solve the problem. Read the instruction manual to find out where the ice bin is located.
Unscrew or unclip the ice bin and then wash it in warm soapy water. Dry the ice bin and then reassemble it. Place it back into the fridge and then find out whether it has resolved the problem.
Old Food If there is any old food in your refrigerator, it should be removed. The ice could taste funny because of this food. Empty your refrigerator of any old food and wash all of the shelves so that the fridge is completely clean.
Once the old food has been removed and the fridge has been cleaned completely you should then test the ice maker to find out whether the problems still affect you.
Flushing the Supply Line The supply line carries water to the ice maker. Sometimes the water can become stale, which is why you might be able to cure the problem by flushing the water pipe out with fresh clean water.
Test the ice maker after flushing the supply line to ensure that the water is now clean that the ice doesn't taste bad.
Water Inlet Valve If the water inlet valve is damaged, then this could also be because of the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve is damaged or broken, it can leave the water exposed to smells inside your fridge, which can make the ice taste bad.
The water inlet valve will need replacing if it is damaged or broken. By replacing this water inlet valve you will be able to correct the problem and enjoy better tasting ice.
Replacing the Water Filter There is a water filter inside of your fridges ice maker that is designed to remove particles and bad smells from the water. The water filter needs to be removed and replaced.
The water filter should be replaced with the same type and model suitable for your freezer. Use your freezers model to ensure that the correct filter is fitted.
Supply Line Filter If your fridge doesn't already have a supply line filter, then fitting one could greatly help to reduce problems with the ice tasting bad. These can be fitted to virtually any ice maker.
Now you should be in good shape thanks to this troubleshooting guide for an ice maker that was producing bad tasting ice. It's time to reward yourself with a cold beverage.

Ice maker not pushing out cubed ice makes funny sound also has a chlorine taste even after changing the water filter


The ice cubes may have melted somewhat and are sticking to the bottom of the ice bin.
Take the ice bin out and dump the ice. Wash and DRY the bin. Put it back in and wait for more ice to make,then try your dispenser.
Let us know the outcome.

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.

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty


The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

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'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.
