Run a fit for human consumption cleaner through the system maybe vinigar...sounds like you have stagnent water or mould in the system...run plenty of water through after cleaning.

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 and water tastes funny after I installed a rubber water hose


Discard the first few batches of ice made by the ice maker. If new plumbingconnections are installed, discard the first few batches of ice. The plumbingsystem is flushing and may cause a bad taste or odd color. Discard ice stored in the bin for long periods of time. Wash the ice binwith warm water and mild dish detergent. Dry thoroughly before replacing thebin. Place foods in airtight containers to prevent the transfer of odors.Thanks and hope it's helpful.

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.

Funny tasting coffee


Vinegar/water cleaning is a good idea, but it won't necessarilly solve funny-tasting coffee. First, replace your charcoal water filter - you can get the Cuisinart brand-name replacements at Lowe's, Bed/Bath/Beyond, or Williams-Sonoma in most areas.

To do the vinegar/water cleaning, just pour 1/3 caraffe distilled white vinegar and 2/3 caraffe water into the water reservoir and brew it like it was regular coffee - I would simply bypass the self-clean function if your Cuisinart has one. Repeat up to 3 times, using a fresh batch of vinegar each time.
(if you have the caraffe-less DCC-2000, then just pour in 4 cups vinegar and 6 cups water).

Then run a full cycle of water. Then run a combo of 12 tsp lemon juice and 12 cups water (or 10 tsp and 10 cups water) to improve the taste.

On your next batch of coffee, use bottled water just to rule out any possibility that your local water supply may be contributing to funny-tasting coffee.

Now your coffee should be tasting fine again.

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 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.
