Bad taste and smell in water at kitchen sink faucet

We just installed a new faucet and supply lines. The supply lines are white hose type (not PVC). Since the change, the water has a bad taste and smell. It is not like rotten eggs, more like metallic and the water from the bathroom facets are not affected.

What can we do to resolve this problem?

Check your water filter inside the unit up in either the left or right side of the top. If you do not have a filter then add a filter to the unit on the supply line to help with this problem

Install a charcoal water filter on the end of your faucet. You can pick one up for under $40 at the local hardware store, installation is easy and only takes about 10 minutes.

    But why does the new faucet cause this? Is this common? I would rather not spend money on a filter - would rather take the faucet out, return it and get one that does not cause the water to taste bad. don@rockanchorage.com

You have biologics growing within the water circuit somewhere. Shut off the water valve and remove the hose from the valve and the fridge so you can empty it; make a 2 tbls. bleach per gallon of water solution and clean out the hose by soaking. Retain some of the disinfectant within the hose when re-attaching so that it flows through the rest of the system. I would recommend replacing the filter if yours has one (some do not). Open the valve and make a tray or two of ice, repeat if needed to kill the algea.

Try to follow the water supply pipe all the way to the meter. It might have a rubber hose connected to it. Could have been some ones leak repair.

Smell in kitchen water


Is your supply line plastic or copper? If its plastic then that can absorb a smell. There is nothing in the icemaker that would make it smell. You may need to replace the supply line and the inlet line that feeds the icemaker. Is there a smell in the kitchen faucett?

We had a new kitchen faucet put in today and the water tastes terrible now. Can we do something?


Nothing other than let the water run at 1/4 throttle in an attempt to clear the nasty tasting water from the supply lines. Let it run for maybe an hour and taste it again.

Working on the lines might have shook loose the foul taste way back up the system. I would hope an hour would clear it but it may take more.

Some cities with less than perfect water will flush their supply lines by opening fire hydrants in a certain pattern designed to shake loose deposits from inside the supply pipes. They often report that people have bad tasting water for days afterwards - perhaps in a few days you might get your relief too?

Ice machine has oily film in water resevoir


There must be something coming in the water line. The only other possible source for this contamination would be some lube coming down from the circulation pump. This is an easy part to change but you could pull the white cover (back right side of trough) to have a look at it.
