After two months the water that's boiled it still makes tea and coffee taste funny ?


What are you using for water? If you are just using tap water try buying a bottle of distilled water at the grocery store. Tap water - especially if it has Chlorine in it - makes terrible tasting coffee. Plus I'd suggest it's not good for you anyway.

You can also try the manufacturer's cleaning recommendation which typically involved running a water/vinegar mixture through the unit and then a couple of empty pots of plain water.

Last thing to check is to replace the water filter in the coffee maker if the model you have has one. Some higher end models do.

Good luck.

Kenmore fridge with a strong chemical taste in water and ice


Every time you replace a water filter you want to purge about 3-4 gallons. Or maybe the filter was bad.

I installed a new PureSource2 filter a month ago. The taste of my water improved and all was fine. Last week a chemical taste began to build and then it became undrinkable. I bought a new filter and...


Search for "how to remove ammonia from tap water" and also for "ammonia added to drinking water". You''l find information, about Chlorine, Chloramines, and Ammonia as different ways to treat water. There is suggestion for ammonia which was to let some water sit for a while to try to off-gas the ammonia. I'd use a glass pan to avoid any metal contamination/confusion for the before/after smell tests. There are kits to test the water.

But first line some facts up
1. Get a water report from the water company to see what naturally occurring minerals are in the source of water and how much of that is removed and what is used to remove it, and, how it compares with local and national standards.
2. Use the water kits, if need be, to confirm these reports.
3. Look at the water filter labels or go to the product's website. There are different levels of purification some these water filters provide. Prices go up correspondingly. I would be surprised if a filter "added" taste. Removing some contaminates might reveal other masked tastes. These filters also recommend the number of hours to be used; the ones with higher removal capability have shorter hours. I'd expect 1-2 years of use.
4. Other solutions:
- use the bypass cap that came with your frig in place of a filter for a before and after taste test.
- use a Brita pitcher.
- look into using a whole house cartridge based system (not water softeners) to get good smelling water everywhere. Replace cartridge(s) annually. Note: I would bypass the outside water bibs for lawn and pool; why use pure water to water the lawn?

Hope this helps.
Ultimately your water source is the problem source.

We have a sunbeam peace and quiet kettle ke7500s it is approx 3months old. When we reboil the water there's always a tainted water taste in the tea and coffee .The taste is so bad we tip out the hot...


As you know friend, some water when it is boiled it really taste bad so I suggest use a water purifier to filter other out dirt, dust, other particles in a water street supply. Sure when you drink the water (not boiled) it doesn't taste bad, that's normal because we can't distinguish it easily. Also try to clean your kettle using baking soda it will eliminate tainted taste.
I hope my advice help you with your problem.

Why does the water boiled in this kettle smell and taste chemically? Any boiled in a plastic kettle in my home is fine.


hello,

the chemical taste of smell from your kettle means that the element in the kettle which provide heat to boiled the water has gone bad due to over heating

this occur when there is shortage of water level in the kettle when the power supply is on

to fix up this problem of smell and chemical taste in your boiled water you will have to make a change of the element (heater)because it has gone bad you can get a replacement of it in the store .

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Awful smell and taste to water boiled in a stainless steel kettl


I have the same problem. Noticed it was in two different pots. The comment number one must be correct because I only use VERY high alkaline water to boil my foods. I had a feeling it was my water. So interesting! I will clean it w white vinegar and see if the smell goes away. SAME weird chemical smell- turns your stomach.

I have a Bunn VPR, it brews fine for a couple pots


Try running a quarter-pot 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water through to clean out calcium deposits in the pump system. Use a clean filter to catch the pumped debris. When pumped through, let cool somewhat, and reuse the cold mixture again twice more. Pour out the vinegar solution and run several cold water loads through to wash out the taste. Hope this helps!

Self cleaning the quisinart coffee maker


I always use a mixture of 50:50 of cold water and white vinegar to help clean the internal parts of any minerals and scaling.


Unplug the coffee maker first, then add the water/vinegar mix to the reservoir.

Place a new, clean paper filter in the basket to help catch any deposits that will be dislodged and cleaned from the coffee maker.

As far as having the coffee pot dry, there is no need for that. I do tend to wait about 15 minutes to let the cleaning mixture disolve any deposits in the main water reservoir and then I turn on the coffee maker and let it process the water/vinegar solution through it.

Once it's done, turn off the coffee maker and discard the solution in the pot. And rinse out the coffee pot/carafe with clean, fresh cold water. Remove and throw away the used paper filter element andrinse out the basket with warm water and put it back on the unit.

Now fill the coffee pot/carafe with fresh, clean water and pour that into the coffee maker's water reservoir. Put in a new, clean, paper filter and turn the unit on and run a plain pot of water. This will help to clean out any remaining residue and clear the unit of the vinegar taste and odor.

Now you're all set to start making fresh tasting coffee again. I always recommend using filtered water for the best tasting coffee, as the taste is a direct result of brewing temperature, water purity, and the coffee you use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kitchenaid 14-Cup has plastic, chemical taste


Run 1/4 cup vingar with a pot of water. The coffee is not finishing its cycle and some remains in the works. You may have to do this several times. Washing the carafe with ice and salt by swirling it around a few times until it sparkels clean. Last thing for a good cup of coffee is filtered water which will keep the unit cleaner too. :)
