Ice maker makes hollow ice cubes why?

That is what is commonly known in the biz as "Shelling". This is cause by low water pressure. Probably a clogged water filter or worn out water valve, kink in supply line. That sort of thing.
The water should fill for 7.5 seconds. If all of the above mentioned is good then the ice maker itself could have a problem between the copper plate mounted under the main drive wheel and the probe that makes contact with it at the end of the harvest cycle.

My ice maker has quit making ice. The refrigerator is only 4 years old and this is the second time this has happened.

You will need to install an inline filter on the water line going to your ice maker. The city water pipes have minerals and dirt in them that cause the problems.The dirt gets in the ice maker and clogs it up.

Kenmore refrigerator model# 70192001 has funny chemical tasting ice

Do you have a water filter, either inline or inside the fridge side? There is nothing in the water lines or valves within the fridge that will contribute to chemical taste. Unless it's just been connected and the line was dirty. It's either your water supply, and if so install a quality inline water filter will help. Some times if the fridge filter is clogged the water flow to the ice maker is restricted and little bubbles get trapped in the ice and they taste off. You should have crystal clear ice. If not get a filter.

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty

The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

Ice maker filter

No, they do not. If the ice is old it can absorb taste from the air. You can also buy an in-line filter for your unit. Hope this helps!

make sure the ice maker is turned on, push and hold the little round button on the front for 15 seconda and see if it starts up an cycles. Also check to make sure the fill tube isn't clogged to the ice maker and another thing to check is the water valve.

Ice maker

Old message but will reply anyhow-

All machines with icemakers have an inline filter.
If you have a water supply not completely devoid of particulates, the filter may be clogged.

I can't tell you where it is located in your fridge but if you still have the user guide, it will tell you.
The recommended interval on ours is 2 X yearly.
Yeah, well . . . we have a whole house filter so I don't worry about it.
