SOURCE: Plastic Smell & Taste

take up smoking
and then you will loose you smell and taste.
every thing is made of plastic and aluminum now.
only a stainless pot does not leach plastic cfc into water when hot.

SOURCE: strange taste in ice cubes

Did you use new water lines? If you did then clear the icecubes from the tray and use an appliance store cleaning solution to wash it out with. their solution is designed for fridge use and wont leave an after taste......Rinse well...... Also for awsome Ice......Install a large in-line water filter.... Makes mine taste like frozen mountain spring water with no nasty taste or smell. Hope it works for ya!

SOURCE: ice maker has bad taste and smell

Add a cap of Miltons or a couple of granules of pool chlorine. Allow it to stand for a couple of hours and then drain.

Awful smell and taste to water boiled in a stainless steel kettl


I have the same problem. Noticed it was in two different pots. The comment number one must be correct because I only use VERY high alkaline water to boil my foods. I had a feeling it was my water. So interesting! I will clean it w white vinegar and see if the smell goes away. SAME weird chemical smell- turns your stomach.

Ice tastes funny and a strange metallic or plastic type smell


Sometimes the smell comes from something in the freezer or even the refrigeratior and makes the ice taste funny. My suggestion is to clean out the freezer compartment of anything frozen that has been there a while and may have freezer burn. That may be the funny smell you are experiencing.
Hope this will help you.

Plastic Smell & Taste


Just because its made of plastic doesn't mean it should taste like plastic! The engineers made a mistake in design! Get your money back and don't risk taking in carcinogens!

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).
