I am an Lg authorized tech. my company was rated the best company in the south eastern united state so i do a lot of lg work. There really isnt to much u can do for the taste of the ice. you can wash the ice maker and if that doesn't work i would have the company come back out and hopefully you will get a guy who is nice and ask him to change out the ice maker but usually if you just was it out it will solve the issue. the ice maker can be taken off fairly easy just two screw that hold it on and a ground screw under the ice maker. you also dont need to be worried about it being anything unhealthy like i said its just the ice maker taste. just try cleaning it. hope this helps

How do I clean my ice maker?


Curious, does your refrigerator have a water dispenser? How does water taste from it? Your ref. has one water supply for both ice and water. Changing filter was a good start but if it's been over a month, there's something else going on. I would look and see behind your ref. and look at the water line. I've run across a bad plastic tube that causes a bad taste. If you have a plastic one, change it out with a new one. Also, ice absorbs food odors from both the freezer section and refrigerator sections, so check your fridge for bad food. Bell green peppers are the worst, they'll leave a metallic taste. Good luck!

Have a new frigidaire how long does it take for ice bin to fill after waterline install


Ice maker will call for water 12-14 hours after plug in. If the ref was running and then Waterline was connected it should call for water in 4 hours or less. Easy rule, after 24 hours, ice bin should be full.

I have a Kenmore Model 795 refrigerator with an ice maker in the bottom drawer. We purchased the refrigerator in August of 2008 (currently November of 2010) and finally hooked up the ice maker last week. ...


The 795 model you make reference to only tells me that this is and LG bottom mount Refrigerator. There are several numbers missing from the model number. This is and example of a good part number: 79577253602 The filter for bottom mount LG units is usually in the upper RH side of the fresh food compartment. See this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fK0810366-00001.png (item 611E)

The weak chlorine taste should fade unless the source is from your house water supply. Let the ice catch bin fill completely once and then dump everything in it. After that your ice should be normal. I think you may be noticing the taste you get from unused plastic tubing / water carrying parts. Just so you know if anyone used bleach to clean the freezer compartment the ice maker will catch any bleach water drips and pass that immediately into the ice. (Have very long customer warranty story with repeated in home visits about how I learned about people using bleach to clean freezer compartments!)
I digressed... just dump the ice collection bin after it is full one time and then check the ice taste on any ice after that. If you think maybe the taste is originating from the freezer compartment get a box of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, cut off the top of the box and leave it in your refrigerator freezer for 6 weeks then toss it in the trash.

Another note no manufacturer will tell you is if you install a cheap in line water filter before the refrigerator water connection you can make the EXPENSIVE ONE on inside of the fresh food compartment last a very very long time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a side by side refrigerator that is 5 years old, and the ice maker does not work. We purchased a 5 year warrenty from Best Buy and requested warrenty repair. It took 3 weeks to get the repair part...


The ice makers are rather finiky. limit switches for almost every movement. Sounds excessive, but replacing the ice maker module will save you a lot of worries. The signal to fill with water comes from the icemaker when it is in the correct position

We just bought a new frigidare refrigerator with a new icemaker installed its been a week and keep dumping the cubes..terrible taste really no smell though.. any suggestions?


Do not use a metal braided line or a vinyl braided line. Get the plastic ice maker tubing and that will fix it. I learned the hard way and now ice taste great.

Bad water & ice cube taste


the feed line of the water source is bad replace it you will also need to clean the ice makers insides to remove the rest of the contamination
and 2 more suggestions:1) change the filter - older refers have the filter in the water line serving the ice maker - newer refers have the water filter in the refer (it looks much like an auto oil filter); 2) do not store ice for extended periods when ice use is not high e.g. during cooler months. Unless you use a full basket of ice over say a few weeks you should dump all and start over periodically.
thanks.
