Re: GE side by side refrigerator
You need to put a inline filter on the wqater line going into the unit. get one that has activated charcoal and reomoves bad taste and other contaminents. replace it every 6 monthe and you should be all right.

I would suggest changing the plastic feeder tubing to the filter and the ice maker on the unit.
Also, the ice maker units unplug and can be removed quite easily, you can also take that out and give it a thorough cleaning with warm soapy water, being a careful not to get water on any electrical parts.
We have a similar fridge: part of the issue could be with the filter, GE has a 6 month filter and a 1 year filter. Might be time to change it (I believe the MWF filter is one year, the GWF is 6 months). Changing the filter helped in our case.
But overall, if you leave lots of leftovers in the fridge, the ice will pick up the smell. A couple of boxes of baking soda should help absorb the smell before it settles itself in the ice.
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.
