Here are some of the most common ice-maker problems and the most probable causes of it:
Ice-maker not working
Temperature Is Too Low
The ice-maker will not produce ice cubes efficiently if the freezer temperature is too high. Ideally, the temperature should be set between 0 and 5° F or -18 and -13° C. If the freezer temperature stays above 15° F, there is probably something wrong with the appliances cooling system. This can be caused by accumulated debris on the condenser coils, preventing the coils from properly dissipating heat. The failure of the condenser fan motor to properly circulate the air, or frosted over evaporator coils restricting airflow. The evaporator coils being frosted over, indicates a failure in the defrost system, which is caused by a defective defrost control, heater or thermostat.

Frozen Water Supply Tube
A frozen water supply tube leading to the icemaker tray can also prevent the ice-maker from working. You can thought the supply tube by heating it with a hairdryer, but be aware that a frozen supply tube is usually caused by insufficient water pressure or a defective inlet valve.
Ice tastes bad
Here are the most probable causes:
Dirty Ice Bin
If the container, where the ice is stored, becomes dirty, ice will have a bad odor and taste. Unscrew, wash and dry the ice bin. Reassemble it and check if the problem has been resolved.
