CHANGE OF WATER TASTE

RECENTLY I CONECTED THE WHOLE HOUSE WATER LINE INTO A WATER SOFTENER. THE TASTE OF WATER THROUGH THE WHOLE HOUSE IS OK EXCEPT THE FRIDGE WATER FILTER DISPENSER. IT IS SO SALTY AND PRIOR TO THIS IT WAS FILTERED AND OK. DOES ANYONE KNOW WHY? IF THE SOFTENER DISTRIBUTES WATER TO ALL TAPS WHY ONLY FRIDGE HAS DIFFERENT TASTE?

I put a new filter in my Sansung Refrigerator and the water taste worse than the old one, why?


I agree with Gramps... the system needs to be flushed, but one question... why did you change the filter in the 1st place... was it cause you had a smell or taste in the water AND ice, or the filter light came on?? I would remove water line going to ref from house plumbing... run water in bucket for 2 min, then take a small taste to see if good..If water taste good, then hook water line back up to ref, and run water at the door for about 1/2 gal, then taste and smell water to see if it passes... If still have problem, you are going to have to replace filter head and/or water reservoir.... But before i did that i would contact Samsung to get their take, depending on age they might send parts at no charge to you the consumer....... Ken Hawk

My ice and water out of the fridge taste bad


I recently had a customer who had bad tasting ice. She'd had technicians from the place she purchased her fridge out, and they replaced the supply lines to the fridge, added water filters, but the problem persisted.

The problem actually started under the house. The fridge is on a wall opposite the kitchen sink and the dishwasher, so it was the only thing using water at the end of a long run of copper line, about 10 to 12 feet of it. Since the ice maker doesn't cycle allot, the water in that line was getting stagnant.

I ended up running a new line from a supply line in the adjacent room where the washer was. It was much shorter and didn't leave the fridge at the end of the line. And that was the end of her problem.

Check the supply line under your home if you can. If there's no other way around it, but that it be at the end of a long run, try running a smaller line to reduce the amount of water that sits in the line, and flush it often.

Hope this helps.

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

My amana side by side fridge water dispenser drips and seems to drip a lot more when say the toilet flushes or the washing machine is running almost like it starts a siphon


Sounds like you need to replace the water solenoid valve, located where the water line connects to the back of the fridge, usually behind the fiber cover at the bottom.

These valves are damaged by dirt in the lines. Dirt and scale roughs up the valve needle and seat, and leak more with lower water pressure.

You can get valvesand valve kits from appliance part stores, Home depot or sears parts via ordering. I highly suggest an external in-line filter that will stop this forever, and suppliment the internal filter for taste. If particles are damaging this valve, it is also slowly causing damage to the other water valves in the bathrooms and toilets. If you have to replace valve washers a lot, then a whole house filter would be worth it.

How do i get clean ice cubes from frigidare?


In order to get as clean an ice cube as possible, it all depends on the quality of the water that goes into the ice maker. If you have a water softener, your cubes will always be a bit cloudy, since the added salt slows down the freezing slightly and thus the cubes get cloudy.

That said, there are a few things you can do to improve your water. Adding a whole house water filter with a sediment charcoal filter, will remove the impurities and help to improve the overall taste. Then add an inline charcoal filter on the water line into the fridge. That will filter your water a bit more and help further improve the clarity and taste of the cubes.

Beyond that, you might want to look into a reverse osmosis system to really get the best possible tasting water you can.

The old adage of "garbage in, garbage out" is a good analagy for water quality issues, so you need to figure out what's in your water in order to take the steps to treat your water for the best possible results.

I recall that Sears offers free water testing (to help sell water softeners) so that's an option, as well as getting a home water test you can perform yourself.

Hope that helps you with your situation. Best regards!

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!
