You will not be able to clean it....the coating is coming off the mold. You will need to replace the icemaker It is easily replaced by removing three 1/4" screws and unplugging the old icemaker. The new one will plug in exactly the same and install exactly the same. You should have no trouble replacing this yourself.

The ice tastes funny, what could be the issue?


Your water filter needs replacing?

If you are at a cottage or using well water, it often contains iron which DOES taste odd.

Commercial ice makers recommend that you clean the system every 3 months.

Take some ice and put it in a saucepan and boil it until it runs dry. WATCH IT NEAR THE END AND DONT LEAVE IT! See what is left and the colour.

GE fridge 1999 model. water started tasting funny. found black stuff in a peice of ice. Water in rest of house seems fine.


Hello there,
When your water starts tasting funny and you can see some kind of particles in the ice, then it means the water filter is dirty and needs to be changed. Try to get the water filter replaced and the funny taste will stop.
If you are having some kind of lime taste or mud taste, or lime deposits or mineral deposit, is simply means you will have to replace the water line and reservior.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

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 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 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!

Ice maker's ice taste funny


You may consider pulling out the ice maker and tossing it in the trash if you look at it and see that where the ice sits it's corroded or its close to a 10 year old in age (IT'S DUE TO GO OUT ANYWAY).Other than that:you have a 3% chance that the tube that goes to your ice maker is bad.
