Why does the water or ice from my icemaker smell funny or taste bad?

Solutions for common icemaker problems involving the taste, look and smell of water or ice

  • Be sure to change your water filter regularly  –every six months to a year.
  • Use a refrigerator or freezer deodorizer like Fridge Aid Deodorizer to absorb odors
  • If you have just added a new icemaker with water dispenser, throw away the first batch or two of ice. If you have a water dispenser on your refrigerator, you may want to run some water through the dispenser and toss that out as well. After a few gallons of water have gone through the system, all of the plastic smell and taste should be gone.
  • The white specks in your cubes are caused by calcium carbonate deposits. As the water for your cubes gets colder, the less mineral content can be suspended in the water. As the cube freezes, these formerly invisible particles start to become visible. You can reduce the amount of specks, or completely get rid of them, with the use of a water filter.
