Re: metal like taste in water

Install a inline water filter that they can change from time to time
there are several types of filters that can do different things some for odor or for minerals some for iron removal
if they have iron in the water that would be the first one to try

How do I clean my ice maker?

Curious, does your refrigerator have a water dispenser? How does water taste from it? Your ref. has one water supply for both ice and water. Changing filter was a good start but if it's been over a month, there's something else going on. I would look and see behind your ref. and look at the water line. I've run across a bad plastic tube that causes a bad taste. If you have a plastic one, change it out with a new one. Also, ice absorbs food odors from both the freezer section and refrigerator sections, so check your fridge for bad food. Bell green peppers are the worst, they'll leave a metallic taste. Good luck!

Ice maker is makeing bad tasting ice water supply is good no bad taste in water , can it be cleaned

Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.

Metalic taste in cold water and ice cubes from refrigerator

I had a similar problem and I was able to get rid of it by replacing the copper lines that go to the refrigerator with plastic ones. It didn't make any sense to me since the pipes are all copper, but the taste is gone and hasn't come back.

My ice taste like metal and the filter does not need changing

I have a whirlpool refriderator that only makes ice. There is no filter in the fridge itself. The water line in the basement is copper, then it has a valve off of the main line. I originally had installed a stainless steel line running to the refriderator. The order of the ice can be described as a metal tasting taste. I purged the line prior to connecting it. I then replaced it with a pvc line, purging it all so. The taste of metal isn't there but it still has a small taste to it. Prior to having a ice maker, we made ice in ice trays with the sink water and had no issues. Can someone shed some light on this issue please.

The water and ice both have a strong metal/mineral taste to them

Remove filter and use dispenser a lot. Chlorine in water may help clean out system that filter is now removing. Not much else you can do other than replace all the water lines and tank. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
