SOURCE: ice maker's ice taste funny

You may consider pulling out the ice maker and tossing it in the trash if you look at it and see that where the ice sits it's corroded or its close to a 10 year old in age (IT'S DUE TO GO OUT ANYWAY).Other than that:you have a 3% chance that the tube that goes to your ice maker is bad.

SOURCE: Bad water taste coming out of Refrig

Hello collado36.. I'll give you a few ideas of things to try.. First off..is there a coffee scent in the refridgerator or freezer compartment when you open the door/s? If so, try emptying the fridge and wash everything with white vinegar and dry all surfaces with a soft cloth ( dish towel is OK).. air drying is OK but you don't want the food you removed to clean it to go bad.. Do you have any food in the fridge that may have been exposed to that coffee that may be 'out-gassing' that coffee smell?

The water comes into your fridge via an electrically operated inlet valve and is dispensed into the mold tray of your ice maker as well as the drinking water spicket. ( I am not sure if your model fridge has a reservoir to chill the water prior to dispensing but it probably does...but that reservoir should not be exposed to the inner refridgerator compartment nor should it pick up any scents or tastes from there either. )
In trying to diagnose exactly where the foul water is generated.. can you detach the incoming water feed line from the fridge and drain that into a large jug? Then check that jug for the same smell? If it only happens within the fridge then the white vinegar wash should help.. .if it also happens in the jug then your incoming water may be the culpret.
Another way to clean your water supply system to the firdge would be to detach the water supply line.. buy another length of flex water line with couplings.. and fill that section with white vinegar that can be forced thru the water system and clean it from the inside out.. if you do use this approach, make sure you flush teh system clean of any leftover white vinegar .. Hope these tips help you resolve your problem.. please get back to me if after you've tried these, they don't work.. Good luck..

SOURCE: Ice tastes funny all of a sudden.

you need to throw out the ice. ice gets stale after a couple of weeks , so toss the old ice. also is there something like garlic or another food that has a strong oder uncovered in your refrigerator section? air flow covers all of the unit, both refrigerator and freezer sections. if your refrigerator is not smelly , put an open box of arm hammer baking soda on a shelf in both sections of the refrigerater. if water and ice still taste funny shut off water supply and check the filter at the rear in the lower part of the unit. take off connecter and visibly check the strainer in the water valve,clean it out by removing it and rinsing it under the sink faucet. make sure that water from other faucets taste ok . the only thing left is to flush out the water tank by filling up glasses of water until the water gets room temperature . that's about all you can do short of replacing the water line leading to the refrigerator, although i have never had to do that before. good luck

SOURCE: Plastic Taste in Refrigerator Water

Hi there, I noticed the same condition when I left the filter in ours a little too long. The optimal performance from the filter is achieved (I have found) when you change it after 3 months. This is about the same amount of time it takes for the light to change from green to red on the filter light.
Hope this helps. ~Steve

SOURCE: Terrible taste that came from water?...

Do you have a water softener? It's possible the softener was in soak when you used the water dispenser. That would explain the "salty" (hi sodium) water taste and thena retrun to normal later.

Also, if you get your water from a muncipal well, they may have been experiencing a problem at the time with higher than normal sodium content.

GE fridge 1999 model. water started tasting funny. found black stuff in a peice of ice. Water in rest of house seems fine.


Hello there,
When your water starts tasting funny and you can see some kind of particles in the ice, then it means the water filter is dirty and needs to be changed. Try to get the water filter replaced and the funny taste will stop.
If you are having some kind of lime taste or mud taste, or lime deposits or mineral deposit, is simply means you will have to replace the water line and reservior.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Coffee tastes funny. does machine need to be cleaned?


Yes, in this type of machine, put a little bit of vinegar and water in top and run a couple times through machine, with of course filter basket on, not with filter or coffee, and brew a couple times. Use 25percent to water ratio, do this twice then do it again, twice with only mineral water. Then make a pot normal, and let me know how coffee taste now. Thanks Mr Bean Man

Kenmore refrigerator model# 70192001 has funny chemical tasting ice


Do you have a water filter, either inline or inside the fridge side? There is nothing in the water lines or valves within the fridge that will contribute to chemical taste. Unless it's just been connected and the line was dirty. It's either your water supply, and if so install a quality inline water filter will help. Some times if the fridge filter is clogged the water flow to the ice maker is restricted and little bubbles get trapped in the ice and they taste off. You should have crystal clear ice. If not get a filter.

Sub Zero 650S with bottom freezer-Ice tastes funny(musty ? taste)


The 650 does not have a filter built into the unit. Any filter would be on the supply line to unit, usually in the basement below the unit, or under the kitchen sink. Do you use alot of ice? If not you may want to empty the bucket every few weeks to let it produce fresh ice.
