SOURCE: Problems with Black & Decker

you have to open it up and look where the water is dripping from. it could be from the rubber hoses that connects the tank to the faucets.

if it's on the hoses, that would be easy to replace, but sometimes the leak would come from the stainless tank whiich would be very hard to replace.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Hamilton Beach water cooler dysfunction.

Check to see if the dispenser has an integral water filter. If yes, replace it to improve the taste of the water. If no, then unplug and remove the top panel and shut off the water supply line to the unit.

You'll want to drain the cooling tank and clean it with some white vinegar to remove any mineral deposits that could be affecting the taste of the water. You'll want to lightly scrub the inside of the chilling/cooling tank with a mixture of at least 2/3 white vinegar and warm water to help dissolve any residue in the tank.

After you've gotten it as clean as possible, turn on the water supply line and flush the tank by filling a pitcher from the cold water dispenser. Do this for at least 2-3 gallons of water to completely clear out the vinegar mixture.

You'll also want to remove and sanitize the dispenser valves on the front of the unit, as there could be some gunk inside the spout that is adding to the foul taste and odor.

I would also suggest you install an inline charcoal water filter to the supply line serving this cooler, as that will only help improve the taste and clarity of your drinking water.

You should be able to adjust the temp of the cold water with a thermostat controler located inside the cabinent. You might want to contat Hamilton Beach to obtain an owner's manual for your unit to get more detailed information about use and operation recommendations.

Hope you found this info very helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: Water Cooler - Water has mildew taste

I just put about six cups of white vinegar (not diluted) into the reservoir and let it sit for about an hour. Then I emptied that out and flushed a few pitchers of very hot water through. It seems to have worked quite well.

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

Ice cubes have a medicine taste after we changed the filter on our new (6mos) whirlpool refrigerator, not in the water. Did not have the taste before changing filter


Did you run water through the new filter before you installed the line going to the refrigerator???? Some time if you don't do that you will get some residue from the carbon filter. and that will leave a funny taste. I would make a couple of more batches of ice and throw them out and then try a taste test of the new batch. That should take care of the taste.

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.

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

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.

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.
