Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

That is your problem.
The plastic supply lines over time deteriorate and wind up causing the water to smell.
Replace the plastic line with a stainless steel ice maker water supply line available at any home improvement center. They are 1/4 inch inside diameter lines and fittings.
They come in 5/10 and 20 foot lenghts.
After you do this run about 2 gallons of water through the water in the door dispenser. Discard the first 3 drops of ice from the ice maker.
Your ice quality will improve.

Check the condition of the teflon on the ice maker. You will probably need to replace the ice maker if the teflon is cracking and getting into your ice.

I honestly don't know anything about these freezers but if your ice is that bad then i would suggest one of two things is going on
1- the supply line is causing a problem, to close to something that is heating it up or else
2- The filter in the fridge might need changing since it's possible something got into it.
That's about the only suggestions i have for this problem. Hope this helps
