Weird taste and smell in water from cooler

I got a Sylvania water cooler from my father, bought new water for it, put it on, and there is a funny taste and smell in both the cold and hot water. The water is fine, but the water cooler probably needs to be cleaned (we can smell it when we took the bottle and top off) My question is, what do i need to do or how do i get inside to clean it?

Use a 50% mix of white vinegar and 50% water. Pour it in ans run a little through to fill the tubes. After 15 minutes, rinse it with plain water. Next, do the same with unscented clorox. 1/4 cup clorox to 1 quart water. Rub any areas you can reach. The vinegar will melt away mineral deposits and the clorox will kill any mold and mildew spores that are causing the stink.

The best way to clean it is to run pipe cleaners through the tubes followed by a baking soda solution. If you have an empty cooler bottle put a gallon of hot water into it and three tablespoons of baking soda. Install it and run all of the water through the cooler and also through the hot side. This will make it clean and sweet smelling once again.

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.

New danby kegerator - tastes like rubber hose


There is a check valve inside the coupler of the danby kegs that cause this problem. The valve is mainly there to prevent beer from back-flowing when changing the keg. Next time you change your keg check for a little black plastic retainer and also a small white plastic ball inside the coupler. Remove those (or just smell it) and you should notice that this is the taste/smell your beer has. I removed mine after this discovery, and there isn't any issues with the taste/smell since. I've heard this is a common issue with the Danby D coupler systems. Also, you won't have any issues with beer backflow when you change the keg, provided the line going to the tap is empty (which usually is if keg is kicked).
