Question about Refrigerators
SOURCE: Ice from Ice maker smells
if the ice has been in the freezer ice bin for a couple of weeks or if you added any food to the freezer that is not totaly frozen before adding then the ice will absorbe the odor of the food added, also the defrost of the evaperator will also add to bad ice taste
a new filter for the ice maker is maybe needed, depending on how long it has been since it was changed
if it has been changed, youcan try this whirlpool tip
put a small pie pan in the freezer and one in the fresh food section
add 1/2 inch of fresh coffee not coffee grounds to each pan
leave in for 24 hrs
dump out coffee in the sink drain
repeat the process
dump coffee in 24 hrs

depending on the brand and the style, locate the filter and change it out. Please note that you must empty out the remaining water from the refrigerator cause if you don't, when you change out the filter you might get the same taste for a while until all the remaining water is replaced by freash water.

SOURCE: bad smelling water
The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.
