If you have a water dispencer on the door of the fridge, and it taste funny, it has nothing with the inside
of the fridge. You could have a dead body in it and it would not do anything to the drinking water.
There should be a filter for the water, you need to look at the manual and see where the filter is
so it can be replaced. If the unit does not have one I would put one in just before the water line
enters the unit. If the line comes up from basement, then the best place is in basement just below
unit where it goes up through floor, this way a good unit with replaceable cartridge can be used.
The larger the unit usually means more time before replacement, volume of water run through it.
If there is mold growing on the plastic water line that runs through the fridge, I would believe that after
very long periods of time that it could leach through the line. 50/50/10 Bleach and water and 10%
dish detergent. If you can clean as much of the line that you can get to with this,then it should stop this.
Does this have any kind of a drain in the bottom of this unit, let the solution of this cleaner go down
and if this flows into a tray, clean tray. You can also cover the drain, fill the area with enough of just a 50/50 water/bleach mix so that it goes over the seams at the bottom, this way say something leaked out of this area there is a chance that the mix will stop this from smelling. This would be
in the last ditch effort, because it is not recommend. You should leave a box of baking soda in each compartment fridge/freez.
Any questions please post back.

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.
