I have a KitchenAid side-by-side refrigerator model KSBS20Q.  It is a counter depth unit bought in 1999.  For over a year the icemaker and water dispenser were not used.  We are now using the ice maker with no problem, but water dispensed through the door smells musty, unpleasant.  Is there a reservoir or something I could clean with bleach?  Where is it located?

Thanks

Scooter,   Why don't you put a inline filter in on the back  and see if that helps.  The reservoir is located on the refrigerator side behind the bottom drawers...Ron

I am using a charcoal filter. That helps the cubes a lot, but I think that leaving water standing in the reservoir, undisturbed for over a year, must might have grown mildew or something.  I thought that removing and cleaning it with bleach might get rid of the taste.  Is the reservoir easily removable?
