We have Kitchenaid model ksc25inbl00 that has a old ice smell we cannot get rid of. We have replaced the water filter, checked the food and replaced the ice five times and it still smells on both sides of the refergerator and freezer. Any ideas?

Wash it out with bleach. Nearly always solves this problem.

SOURCE: Refrigerator Smell

Is the problem more in the freezer than the fridge section. If it is it is possible that on a defrost cycle the heaters which warm the coil may have warped and ar heating something they shouldnt. Another possibility is if there is something in the condensate tray (where the water collects) or something touching the compressor which runs very hot, or even the compressor relay if it is a 'plastic' smell. Smells are notoriously bad things to trace as engineers normally turn up when the smell is either gone or so faint as to not to detect. All I can suggest is trying to narrow the search area as much as you can and hopefully youll find it. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: chemical odor...

try putting crumpled newspaper in it daily to get rid of the smell, the coolant if leaking should not cause any horrible smell, Freon they use today has very little smell to it. Frost free units have heaters and fans in them to keep them frost free. It could be that a fan quit and the heater overheated something around it."

Let me know if this helps, good luck

SOURCE: Ice and Refrigerator and Freezer smell like alcohol chemical

All items stored in the refrigerator and freezer should be stored in sealed packaging. Frost free refrigerator operate with a very low humidity and will pick up odors from products. Somewhat of an ozone smell will be in some frozen foods. This is a normal condition. Deodorizing packs are available on the market to absorb odors. Baking soda does the job in most cases.

SOURCE: Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell

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.

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.

Ice maker water taste like chlorine but tap tastes fine


Put a in-line water filter on the water line if you want. The taste is from the food and items you have in the refrigerator. Clean it out and keep your items in proper storage. Ice collects the smells in the line and the fridge. Change your ice that is sitting in the bin, wask out the bin with water and baking soda. Hope this helps.

    Very bad tasting/smelling water and ice cubes - Superba KSRS27QAAL05


    Since I found that the water itself being fed to the trays and being dispensed was bad. I replace the nylon, reinforced plastice icemaker hose with 1/4" copper supply line. That, along with purging the hopper (getting rid of) any old ice as well as washing the hopper out real good and giving the freezer a general cleaning - seemed to do the trick. No repugnant odor or taste. (I didn't even replace the filter- the cycle is every 6 mos.)

    Hope this helps others who may be experiencing this same prob with this type of side by side appliance.

    Good luck!
