Have you realized that the ice maker in the refrigerator is making ice cubes that smell funny or taste bad? As confirmed by the reviews on the Ice Cubicle website, this is a relatively popular issue in ice makers and in this article we would talk about a few likely causes and solutions.

The first likely cause for ice that isn’t really proper is a bad water filtration system filter. If your filter happens to be older than six months then it’s  time to get it replaced since that’s about as long as they are made to work properly.

As a matter of fact, if your family makes use of much ice you might need to get the filter replaced at more frequent intervals, due to the fact that the more water it has to purify the less time the filter lasts. You might want to request for a few additional filters to keep on hand too, luckily filters are not very costly and can be ordered online most of the time.

A second likely cause for poor tasting ice is that you have old ice cubes in your ice bin. If you do not use your ice manufacturer that often, it’s likely that the old ice has absorbed odors from other items inside the freezer or refrigerator. It’s easy for odors and food gases to be transferred to ice and water, especially from food that’s spoiled and old.

To avoid this, keep a close eye on the items in your refrigerator and empty your ice bin of old ice at consistent intervals and clean the bin as well. This would go a long way in making sure that you keep your ice clean and preserve the taste too.

Most times a refrigerator will have a lot of items in it that it becomes hard to take note of spills, so you should have a constant schedule created to remove all food and clean the inner compartments; examine a sample on the Ice Cubicle website.
