Hello collado36.. I'll give you a few ideas of things to try.. First off..is there a coffee scent in the refridgerator or freezer compartment when you open the door/s? If so, try emptying the fridge and wash everything with white vinegar and dry all surfaces with a soft cloth ( dish towel is OK).. air drying is OK but you don't want the food you removed to clean it to go bad.. Do you have any food in the fridge that may have been exposed to that coffee that may be 'out-gassing' that coffee smell?
The water comes into your fridge via an electrically operated inlet valve and is dispensed into the mold tray of your ice maker as well as the drinking water spicket. ( I am not sure if your model fridge has a reservoir to chill the water prior to dispensing but it probably does...but that reservoir should not be exposed to the inner refridgerator compartment nor should it pick up any scents or tastes from there either. )
In trying to diagnose exactly where the foul water is generated.. can you detach the incoming water feed line from the fridge and drain that into a large jug? Then check that jug for the same smell? If it only happens within the fridge then the white vinegar wash should help.. .if it also happens in the jug then your incoming water may be the culpret.
Another way to clean your water supply system to the firdge would be to detach the water supply line.. buy another length of flex water line with couplings.. and fill that section with white vinegar that can be forced thru the water system and clean it from the inside out.. if you do use this approach, make sure you flush teh system clean of any leftover white vinegar .. Hope these tips help you resolve your problem.. please get back to me if after you've tried these, they don't work.. Good luck..
