We have a Maytag refrigerator which is less than 1 year old. Revently we have noticed an unusual taste to the ice that the built-in icemaker produces. We have replaced the water filter not too long ago. What is the possible reason for this problem? We will appreciate your response & any suggestions you can make. Sincerely, Hans & Loreilei Fink

The water may have been in the tank for too long. Draw and discard a least 8 glasses of water to freshen the water supply. Draw another 8 glasses or more to completely rinse out the tank. Repeat the process if necessary until the water supply has freshen up. Please indicate the exact model number of the refrigerator if you need further advice.

    Our Maytag is a Side-by-Side unit & the Model # MSD2247VEB00.

    If this makes a difference to the initial suggested solution, I will appreciate to hear about it.

    The model number is requested just in case further troubleshooting is required. Follow the first suggestion and see the result as it is always address the bad taste problem with the ice maker.

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator . Model? But though it's about 8 to 10 years old, it wasn't used for about 4-5 years. It has been fine for the last 5 years that I have used it, it has been working fine....

Joann I would suggest you look and change your water filter. It should be located in the refrigerator side on top. Just twist it off, take it to Lows' and find a new one.

Ice from refrigerator taste like ammonia

very rarely does the fridge make the water taste bad, it is usually from the plumbing. First check if the fridge has a water filter and replace it if it's over a year old.

I have a Maytag bottom freezer refrigerator w/automatic ice maker. The ice has terrible odor and taste. I do not have owner's manual and cannot locate a filter. i believe the fridge is about 3 years...


Searching the parts breakdown for your model number i do not see a listing for a water filter so i suppose it doesn't have a built in one. If it did have one it would be on the right hand corner of the ceiling of the fresh food compartment.
This link is for a pdf version of the owners manual

Ice taste funny with black specks on it, need to know how to clean ice maker

You will not be able to clean it....the coating is coming off the mold. You will need to replace the icemaker It is easily replaced by removing three 1/4" screws and unplugging the old icemaker. The new one will plug in exactly the same and install exactly the same. You should have no trouble replacing this yourself.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Freezer burn on ice-cubes

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.
