    Default Peculiar Tasting Ice - In Freezer Ice Maker



    I am hoping someone in this group may have a suggestion. My DH has been complaining that the ice I have been putting in his beverages has a "defrost" or "odd" flavor. My refrige has the ice maker in the freezer compartment, not the door. I have cleaned the freezer with baking soda without any success in changing the ice flavor. I thought maybe it was picking up odors from the food being stored. Any ideas what could be causing this and how to remedy??





    Many thanks.

    Default Peculiar Tasting Ice - In Freezer Ice Maker

    I have 2 things to recommend. First, if there is a filter for the

    water (there should be) to change it. If the water line does not

    have a filter, add it.

    The second recommendation is to get a small back of the cheap bbq

    charcoal brickettes. Not the easy start, but plain charcoal. This

    stuff is even more effective than baking soda at keeping odors

    down. I have 3 in the fridge and 3 in the freezer, in the door part

    in a disposable plastic cup. I have 4 in a margarine bowl in the

    chest freezer.



    The charcoal is also wonderful to place in shoes (insert in old

    socks) to keep odors down, and to place in ice chests or thermoses to

    prevent odors.

    I say the same thing about our ice.I would think it's from the water hose that goes to the freezer.I'm not sure but I'll be reading to find out why.
