Question about Refrigerators
Urban Cowboy is right. If your refirgerator is a new system or you have recently recplaced your tubing/pipes that deliver water to the ice making system this could be the cause. Also, if the system is an older system, the tubing/pipes could have some contaminate build-up that is causing the problem. Lastly, since it looks like your refrigerator uses a UKF8001AXX water filter when is the last time it has been replaced? The UKF8001AXX filter Reduces sediment, chlorine, bad taste, odors, and other water contaminates but generally is only effective for about 6 months.

Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
New plumbing connections? New plumbing connections
can cause discolored or off-flavored ice. Ice stored too long? Discard ice. Wash ice bin. Allow
24hours for ice maker to make new ice. Odor transfer from food? Use airtight, moisture proof
packaging to store food. Are there minerals (such as sulfur) in the water? A water
filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals. Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark
discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system
needs additional flushing. Flush the water system before
using a new water filter. Replace water filter when indicated.
