Bugs in ice maker

Ever since I moved into my new apartment, I've been getting bugs coming out in my ice from my ice maker. I've let it run and run for days, but still they seem to be coming out. What are they and is there anything I can do about them?
There are no visible signs of bugs anywhere else in the refridgerator, freezer, or kitchen.

If you are meaning bugs inside the ice cubes, not able to happen..even if bugs climbed inside the water flow tube when ever the unit was unplugged, just a few cycles of ice being made would of cleaned out the hose.

Definately bugs? You didn't say what size can't be sure if it's specs of something.

Three possibilities that I can think of:
While the apartment was empty, bugs crawled into the water line that is now hooked to your fridge. They are not bugs, but bits of carbon from a filter in the line This is a troll.

Thats not all too bad. Just a little extra protein in your martini. Much worse was when I made a mixed drink and found my bloody frozen penis inside an ice cube. Turns out my wife cut me off when I was drunk the night before.

Do not clean with vinagar - that will attract tiny fruit flies.

I have so many fruit flies that go up into my ice maker!!! Drives me crazy. I agree with the person that said don't clean with vinegar. I only use vinegar so maybe that is drawing them and they have to be drawn to the cool of the ice maker???? They aren't on anything thing else...there's nothing else out. Someone told me they can live/breed in houseplants. I might move my plants and see how that works.

I don't know about white vinegar, but cider vinegar in a jar with a hole in the top makes a good trap. Yet, it does attract them.

How about a couple of photos? Include a ruler in the photos so we can judge the size of your bugs.

I have the same problem. I dumped all the ice out of the ice storage bin - no bugs. I think they are not in the ice, they land on the dispenser end of the ice maker and maybe die there or something, I don't know why. Try cleaning the dispenser end before getting ice, and/or run a bunch of ice out and throw it away before filling your glass. That seems to work for me.

Are you sure they are bugs and not pieces of a carbon filter breaking off? Very new bugs would survive a freezer and there are few ways they could get in.
