Bad tasting /smelling water

Unless I pour and dump out 4-6 classes of water before I drink a glass my water tastes and smells bad.  To me it is undrinkable so I no longer get water out front the front.  I have even tried running it with out the filter as a last ditch effort but still tasted the same.

This happens each time you get water or only when you've recently changed the filter?  Do you live in an area with hard water/well water?  I would try cleaning the water line out with warm water and vinegar to see if this helps.  
When is the last time the filter was changed?

Bad fan blower smell and bad smelling and tasting ice cubes from ice cube maker


If unit has a water dispenser, how does water taste? I've run across bell peppers that will emit a bad smell. Keep in mind 95% of all refrigerators circulate air from freezer to refrigerator side and then back. It continues to circulate air so bad produce from refrigerator side will get into freezer side and ice will absorb smell. First, dump all ice. Then line shelves in refrigerator side with newspaper, that absorb smells. You can even try kitty litter in small cups in refrigerator side. Bell peppers gives off that metallic smell and can take some time to get out of unit. Highly unlikely a motor is bad and you've already changed outside water line.

Why is there a bad taste and smell in water in all faucets


Could be old pipes you should get a new clean glass container, get a water sample and take it to the water department and have it tested. I would not drink it until you have it checked.

Keurig bad taste


I had that bad Keurig taste/smell for the first few months I owned it and almost returned it, but then someone suggested I run vinegar (1/3) and water (2/3) through it as though it was time to clean it and flush with just water for 3 cycles (see instructions)... and it worked!!!

Drinking water has a bad taste and smell.


You will have to trace where the foul smell comes from by tracing the water line and testing the source. Check if it is before or after the filter you get the smell, if it is before the filter, you need to check if it is on the line which comes from the source or it is from the source. Most likely cleaning or probably a replacement of the part if cleaning does not help.
