I cleaned my water cooler with vinegar but the water still taste bad. What can i do ?


it it is a plumbed in unit running off utility water supply, there is a small ceramic water filter assembly that can be fitted into the water inlet side of the unit
because it is extremely fine it removes the contaminates that make the taste if that doesn't work you can fit in tandem a charcoal filter after that ceramic to guarantee perfectly clean tasteless water
add to the fact that every 12 months ( depending on volume usage) the ceramic filter can be removed and the contaminates scraped off the surface using a knife which regenerates the filter
if it is bottle feed then clean out the holding tank using bleach, wash thoroughly and allow water to run from both taps for a few minutes to remove all residue bleach , the fit new water bottle
spare bottles are subject to algae growth ( taste ) if stored in a well lit area so store spare bottles in a dark room ( closet , under bench etc )

Water from house pump tastes of chemicals. It is coming from the pump.


It can be replaced with a metal one if you can locate a metal one that is the same.

What brand/model of pump do you have? You may have a well pump or a pool type pump?

New kettle leaves a metalic tast to water after boiling.


Try different water. If you use tap water normally, buy a jug of water at the store. The pH may be wrong (particularly if it is too low) and leeching metal from the kettle. Good luck.

Ice maker water taste like chlorine but tap tastes fine


Put a in-line water filter on the water line if you want. The taste is from the food and items you have in the refrigerator. Clean it out and keep your items in proper storage. Ice collects the smells in the line and the fridge. Change your ice that is sitting in the bin, wask out the bin with water and baking soda. Hope this helps.

Bad water & ice cube taste


the feed line of the water source is bad replace it you will also need to clean the ice makers insides to remove the rest of the contamination
and 2 more suggestions:1) change the filter - older refers have the filter in the water line serving the ice maker - newer refers have the water filter in the refer (it looks much like an auto oil filter); 2) do not store ice for extended periods when ice use is not high e.g. during cooler months. Unless you use a full basket of ice over say a few weeks you should dump all and start over periodically.
thanks.

Coffee tastes like metal


THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert

New danby kegerator - tastes like rubber hose


There is a check valve inside the coupler of the danby kegs that cause this problem. The valve is mainly there to prevent beer from back-flowing when changing the keg. Next time you change your keg check for a little black plastic retainer and also a small white plastic ball inside the coupler. Remove those (or just smell it) and you should notice that this is the taste/smell your beer has. I removed mine after this discovery, and there isn't any issues with the taste/smell since. I've heard this is a common issue with the Danby D coupler systems. Also, you won't have any issues with beer backflow when you change the keg, provided the line going to the tap is empty (which usually is if keg is kicked).
