My ice maker is producing ice but the ice is getting a "freezer burn" feel/look to it and has a chalky taste. I emptied the hopper and filled it with store bought ice. That ice took on the same characteristics as the ice produced by the ice maker. I replaced the water filter and adjusted the freezer temp in both directions. These actions did not affect the situation. The water from the door dispenser tastes ok. Any thoughts? Thank you!
ANSWER Pete, First thought is, Odors and taste in the ice cubes is due to: water quality, and or articles in the refrigerator or freezer transferring to the cubes by way of air circulation. Store bought ice cubes and a new filter, without a remedy, pretty much eliminates the ice maker and water supply as the culprit. You're best bet is to clean out the refrigerator and freezer, wash the interior liners, door liner and door bins, ice bin assembly and ice maker with hot, soapy water, aand thoroughly rinse with hot water.
