I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your ice maker. If the water supply line from the wall is plastic (flexible), it needs to be changed to copper. A plastic (flexible) hose can create a taste problem. Usually, the main reason for ice to get an odor or taste bad is because of the air flow, inside of the refrigerator. Air is circulated throughout the refrigerator and it blows directly on the ice cubes. The air will pick up any odors inside the refrigerator and blow it directly on the cubes, which in turn absorb the odor. To correct this, the inside of the refrigerator needs to be cleaned. The best way to clean the inside of a refrigerator is, with a mild detergent and warm water. I hope this information helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I am having the exact same problem with my Kenmore bottom freezer unit. My concern is that the plastic (vinyl) tubing sold to me at the time of purchase could have significant health risks. Now that I know this is a recognized problem, I plan to have my tube tested by an independent laboratory to see what chemicals have been leeching into our ice. Luckily, I still have all receipts, UPC codes, etc.

Gaining access to some parts can sometimes be a challenge. The information you have received from James is good but it does not pertain to this problem. To access the defrost heater will require removing the back panel in the freezer. Everything in the freezer including the icemaker and side panels will need to be taken out. I'm attaching a picture of how to remove the icemaker. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.
