Question about Refrigerators
I have a Maytag fridge that has black mold around the freezer section gasket. Also the ice-cubes have a terrible freezer burn taste after only a day. Are they related problems and how can I fix my poor tasting ice-cubes?
Well, this is just a weird question I wanted to ask.
My fridge isn't fancy, so we've got the ol' ice cube tray's, fill them up, and the like.
Okay, I've noticed that fountain drinks have ice that is pretty clear looking.
Ours in the freezer are kind of frosty white and I think my dr. pepper taste horrible when I use the ice cubes here.
Why in the world do my ice cubes taste weird all of the time?

Black mould around the freezer seal is normal if it has built up over a long period of time or has stood in damp environments. Normally hot soapy water can clear this right up. The ice taste would probably be resolved by fitting or changing the water filter, and / or cleaning the ice maker module located at the top of the freezer section and any route that the ice would take. Cleaning solutions for ice makers are available you just might need to call a local engineer for some advice on where to get some in your area. Hope this helps.

Try a spray bottle of vinegar and an old toothbrush for the seals---hoses leading to the icemaker might need to be replaced

is just a matter of taste. The silicone ice cube molds are more flexible and
often take up less freezer space but some people don't enjoy the struggle of
getting them out of the molds.
article that reviews ice cube trays and gives an opionion on the best ones. For
me - I still love the old fashioned plastic trays that don't flop around when
you are trying to put them in the freezer;
