We recently purchased a new home and it came with all the major kitchen appliances included a GE side by side refrigerator model#GSL25JFRFBS. This refrigerator looks fairly new maybe 4 or 5 years old and has a build in water filter system. The first time we went to get water out of it we noticed it smelled and tasted bad, I would describe it as a mildew smell. After finding this I purchased a new water filter, but this has not helped. The ice seems to be fine, it's just the water. I have also filled a glass with water from the water outlet behind the refridgerator that feeds it and it also taste fine. Also if I pull a alot of water out of the refridgerator (maybe a gallon or more) it starts to taste fine, but going back to get home water a couple hours later it tastes and smells bad again. Has anyone else had this issue? I spoke with a local appliance store and after pulling up a diagram their suggestion was to replace the water storage coil, they think it might have some got mold or mildew in it. I think their thought makes sense, but I hoped to hear if anyone else has had this issue and found a solution. Also would replacing this water storage be something a do it yourselfer can do? Any info would be helpful. Thanks.
