SOURCE: Coffee tastes like rubber / plastic - brand new

After getting in touch with the Keurig folks - I tried their solution. And... it worked! The coffee this morning tastes wonderful! Here is what they said:

To get rid of the "new brewer taste", we recommend you flush three reservoirs of water through the system. Please add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar to the first reservoir of water. To do this, follow these simple steps:
~ Open and close the handle to simulate a brew cycle (without a K-Cup)
~ Press the largest cup size and brew a cup of water.
~ Repeat the process (opening and closing the lid, then brewing) until the reservoir is empty.
~ Flush two more reservoirs of water through the brewer in the same way.

This process will clear any lingering odors or flavors and allow you to enjoy an unadulterated cup of coffee.

SOURCE: Strong plastic smell and taste on a new Keurig Platnum coffee mak

I had the same problem and I discovered that after running 3 resevoirs full of water through the machine at 192 degrees , it got rid of the plastic smell. Set the cup size at the largest size mug and then just open the lid and close it , hit brew and let it fill the cup. Dump the water in the sink and repeat until you go through at least 3 resevoirs. The smell should be gone by then.

Keurig new with burnt plastic smell


We had the same problem with the Keurig 2.0. We ran many cups of vinegar followed by water and it didn't fix the problem at all. The only fix was calling Keurig and they replaced the unit. We had a real nice 460. They replaced the unit with an inferior 350. Smaller reservoir, B&W screen and some missing menu options and different color trim. However, it works.

Fridge has chemical smell


The smells are being pulled in through the air intake from the fridge from the chemicals they used on the floor. As the coating cures, the odor will end. As for the damage to your food and drinks? I would assume if the food tastes like the chemicals, I would avoid eatting them if you do not like the taste )
