Hi everyone. I'm trying to diagnose a fridge, which came with the house we moved into last september. The ice cubes and water from the dispenser have an odd taste/smell. It hasn't been a big deal but with the heat wave we've been going through more ice. I've been reading this is possibly due to an old water filter?

I checked for a water filter at the baseplate but there is none there (front cap is missing as well) - but the water dispender/ice machine still functions. I've also read there may be a filter bypass installed?

Wondering what my options are at this point?

thanks for your help

Go to page 14 of your owners manual here: searspartsdirect.com/model/1peruexnyj-000582/kenmore-10674953400-top-mount-refrigerator-parts

It explains that you can use the ice maker/water dispenser without a water filter. It has a built-in water filter bypass. You can also find your water filter and cap at the link above too.
