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.

This is my second day with my machine, and after I brewed some tea.... it smelt and taste like plastic. Also after brewing when u pick up the machine it sounds like there's still water in it? What do I do?


Run several cups of just plan water through your B-40, The plastic taste and smell should disappear, And, there will always be about 8 oz. of water that will remain in your B-40 at all times, after first use !!!

Steam smells odd and affects milk taste.


The boiler is contaminated with milk and needs to be descaled and cleaned.

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.

Coffee tastes very acidic


Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran

I would say because it's new.
it has hot steam going through a plastic nozzle so there will be some initial smell

Coffee pot


durabrand has no contacts outside china this is a unit made for and imported for walmart only walmart is the only contact ...... your problem is not anything you or walmart can do anything about the problem is the cheap plastic that is used , when it gets hot some people can taste and smell it and others cant . .. its getting more common in everthing that heats water .. personaly i would not drink anything from an appliance that puts a plastic taste in my water ..... if you move up in price the problem is reduced , better plastics are used , but your not going to get one for 10.00 ! "you get what you pay for " more now than ever .... good luck Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob

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!
