It will be good to clean well the full line leading to the filter.Since when the filter is changed you must make sure the supply lines had not been clogged. Now drain out the water for sometime after the new filter is changed as it will have a chemical smell. Flush off for sometime before you can start using. There cannot be any other reason than this , make sure there is no fault in the water inlet line.
Hope the filter that was changed was the original component. Hope you check this out. Good day

Kenmore fridge with a strong chemical taste in water and ice


Every time you replace a water filter you want to purge about 3-4 gallons. Or maybe the filter was bad.

Ice smells like mildew! We purchased the refrigerator/freezer new 6 months ago. It does not seem to be a problem caused by other foods in the freezer. Model number: FFTR2126LW


Mildew smell in your ice is caused by one of three things. 1. Old, dirty, clogged water filter 2. Bad water quality from your house water supply 3. Ice that has not been used and sits in the bucket for time can become stale tasting.

Water and Ice have tasted like **** since we got the refrigerator (about 1 year ago) I believe the soultion is bypass the storage tank, but I can't find it..


When the Ice Smells
1. Replace water filters every 6 months to avoid musty odors from getting into your ice. If you don't replace the filters, they become clogged with the chemicals they have been removing from the water. In addition to smelly ice, you may see a drop in water pressure if you have a water dispenser, and possibly a decrease in ice cube size.
2. Remove the cap from the new filter.
3. Place the cartridge inside the holder, and twist to the right.

When the ice smells...water & ice have tasted like ***** also.

Good day : )

FRIDGE FREEZER SIDE STINKS


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.

Plhs67es fridgidaire refrigerator no water despence or making ice


Always remember Safty First to turn off power and water supply and only turn them on as needed!!!
I checked water supply it was great and then check the valves (solinoids) and the power and all was good. The next thing I checked was the water from the supply valve to the filter at the same time I put some water in the ice maker to make sure it was working (leave it to make sure it drops the ice). The filter was new but was defective. Water went to the filter but did not return any to the despencer or the ice maker. During the different test I performed I also found that the lines hook to valves that the filter plugged into and since the new filter fixed the problem those valves were ok but could have been the problem therefore I suggest if you have this problem remove the filter and depress the small valve with a small object (like a hollowed out pen) and call for the water to be dispenced. If the water does not spray out then you have another problem...I went threw the whole system to find a bad filter, which I thought in the begining but since the other filter was new I done all of the above.
Although I figured out the problem myself this is a great Web Site. Thank You

I have a bad smell and taste in water and ice from fridge/freezer


Take out all shelves and accessories that can be removed. Wash these thoroughly with a mild detergent (dish washing liquid and warm water) and rinse thoroughly. Allow them to air dry completely.
* Wipe the inside walls of the refrigerator and freezer down completely with a solution of 1 quart warm water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Wipe the walls completely dry.
* Leave the doors standing wide open. Use a fan to circulate air through the cabinets for several hours to completely dry the inside walls. After several hours, turn the fan off.
* Replace the shelves in the refrigerator. Place shallow trays of one of the following deodorizers on the shelves of the refrigerator and freezer:
o Baking soda
o Activated carbon (used in aquarium filters, can be obtained at a pet store)
o Cat litter
o Fresh and unused coffee grounds (this may leave a coffee smell that would dissipate after several days)
* After 24 hours, plug in the refrigerator and allow it to cool for several hours with the deodorizer still in place. Once cooled to normal operating temperature, remove the trays of deodorizer and put your food back into the refrigerator and freezer.
* Keep some cereal size bowls of a deodorizer in the freezer and refrigerator cabinets for several days

Bad water & ice cube taste


then change your filter. the new filter could be different with the old filter. check the new filter, see if there is odor removal and taste removal with it.

if not then get the filter with carbon filter, odor and taste removal.

then with a new filter, run about 5 gallons of water before using the water for drinking.

tnx 4 using fixya,
