Ice maker problem

The ice dispenses well and regularly, however, the ice has a foul odor that makes drinking ice water unpleasant.
The ice is perfectly clear looking even though it smells bad.
The filtered water otherwise tastes fine and fresh and appears clear when tasted without the ice.  about one month ago I changed the filter without any problem and it has been working fine up until now.
The ice maker recently stopped dumping dumping the ice from the tray. As a result, I turned it off for 12 hours or so, turned it on again, and it began to work again.  That's when the bad ice began.  
What do I do?

Why does my drinking water from the auto water dispenser smell??


In some instances when the cool water and/or ice maker is not used for some time, mold can accumulate in the tubing between the water intake and the ice maker. Once this happens, it is very difficult to eliminate. One method is to disconnect the tubing from both ends and block one end off. Then fill the tubing with bleach or half bleach and half water and let stand for just a few minutes. Then drain the bleach from the tubing and flush the tubing thoroughly. Be sure to run adequate water through the system to completely eliminate the residual odor/taste of the bleach before reconnecting.

FRIGIDAIRE FRS26ZSG - WATER DISPENSER


Is there an overflow module that connects the icemaker to the water dispenser? If you are still getting ice, it is probably just extra water.

It's not making ice. Not sending water to the ice maker. I replaced the filter this morning. Water is dispensed for drinking , but not for the ice maker.


I just replaced the water valve because my water dispenser in the door kept dripping. Google parts for your model and put in water valve. It will cost around $80 for the part. My sic year old did most of thr reacement after watching an online video.

I have an Amana refrigerator, model #ABB1922FEB2. The ice that is made by the automatic ice maker has a foul odor and taste. The water that comes out of our faucet tastes fine, and it's the same water...


Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice New plumbing connections? New plumbing connections
can cause discolored or off-flavored ice.
Ice stored too long? Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow
24hours for ice maker to make new ice.
Odor transfer from food? Use airtight, moisture proof
packaging to store food.
Are there minerals (such as sulfur) in the water? A water
filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark
discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system
needs additional flushing. Flush the water system before
using a new water filter. Replace water filter when indicated.
See "Water Filtration System
To purchase a replacement water filter, model UFK8001AXX-750,
contact your dealer or call 1-877-232-6771 U.S.A. or
1-800-807-6777 Canada

Dispenses water for drinking but not to make ice in ice machine


Your model refrigerator uses an electronic Ice Maker. You can test the Ice Maker by filling with tap water and let freeze sometimes they already have ice inside and shrinking because of defrost. If you can fill the trays with tap water and it freezes and dumps but does not refill with water the problem will be the water control valve. If ice maker does nothing and on then the Ice Maker is the problem. Try that first and let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

Ice maker quit, water still dispenses


even though you still have water dispensing you may have a frozen line to the ice-maker, take out your ice-maker and check to see if the feeder tube has ice in it, take a drinking straw and insert it into the feeder tube for the ice-maker and see if you can push it all the way to the valve, it's lite enough not to damage the feeder and strong enough to break up whatever Ice might be blocking the tube

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first
