Question about KitchenAid Pro Line Coffeemaker Coffee Maker

Lasting plastic smell

Bought one few days ago. I ran water thru more than 10 times on day one, and the taste of plastic stay strong, second days I do three more water run, still the same - havent try to brew coffee yet.
The manual suggest just one time water run thru so is mine proline a defect one or the taste just stay for a long time?

    Thanks for the advice. However I did try the cleaning cycle and it was good for couple brews then the smell came back. The temperature is about 182. SO I am going to return this one.

Obviously, this should not be! First, we need to know if the coffee maker is working correctly. If you have a candy/oven thermometer, check the output temp of the water. Be careful...it will be hot! The correct temp should be about 180-185 degrees. If it is hotter than that...return the machine. It has a defective thermostat.

What you can do about the taste: try taking some baking soda and mix it with the feed water. Use about 2 tablespoons in at least two cups of water. Then, add plain water. The baking soda can't hurt you but throw it away and clean the pot. Now, take some water and run it through. If the taste is gone...enjoy! If not, try another unit.

This is my second day with my machine, and after I brewed some tea.... it smelt and taste like plastic. Also after brewing when u pick up the machine it sounds like there's still water in it? What do I do?


Run several cups of just plan water through your B-40, The plastic taste and smell should disappear, And, there will always be about 8 oz. of water that will remain in your B-40 at all times, after first use !!!

Keurig new with burnt plastic smell


We had the same problem with the Keurig 2.0. We ran many cups of vinegar followed by water and it didn't fix the problem at all. The only fix was calling Keurig and they replaced the unit. We had a real nice 460. They replaced the unit with an inferior 350. Smaller reservoir, B&W screen and some missing menu options and different color trim. However, it works.

Refridgerator water odor


I think I fixed the smell problem. Of course it may come back in a few weeks but what I did was I used a large syringe filled with vinegar and pumped that through the lines. I was able to get a really good seal using just the plastic tip of the syringe pressed really hard against my abdomine while I used the water despenser to let the pressure go through the line. I left the filter in because I think the bacteria had contaminated it as well. I kept refilling the syringe and pressing it into the fridge's water line and running the water dispenser at the same time until I got about 10 oz of vinegar in the lines. At that point I could taste the vinegar coming out in the water. I then ran out of vinegar (oops) so I started waiting till I could drive to get more vinegar but gave up after waiting over 1.5 hours (I had a reason why I could not just go and get more). At that point I was kind of worried I might pickle the lines and never get the taste of vinegar out so I reconnected the water lines and flushed the vinegar through (about 2,5 gallons). It seems to still be good tasting after the second day so at least I know the vinegar kills that bacteria, just not sure if I got enough vinegar through to completely fill the lines (it only tasted a little like vinegar when I ran out). I don't think a plumber would know to try this.

Hope this helps others.

durabrand has no contacts outside china this is a unit made for and imported for walmart only walmart is the only contact ...... your problem is not anything you or walmart can do anything about the problem is the cheap plastic that is used , when it gets hot some people can taste and smell it and others cant . .. its getting more common in everthing that heats water .. personaly i would not drink anything from an appliance that puts a plastic taste in my water ..... if you move up in price the problem is reduced , better plastics are used , but your not going to get one for 10.00 ! "you get what you pay for " more now than ever .... good luck Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob
