Flush it through with clorine bleach(as clorine is a gas it will dissipate quickly,and leave no taste...)

Water smells from my side by side


Hello Maria, this is JK. I understand that you recently purchased a pre-owned refrigerator. Changing out the filter and the tubing were a great start to clean water. If you have not already, I would encourage you to run 10-12 glasses of water to freshen the supply and rinse out the tank. If you find that this odor and taste still persist, you may want to have the water tank replaced. Hope this helps!

Water (not ice) tastes bad in our <3 yr old side by side Whirlpool frig. We've replaced filter, no change. After we empty about 3-4 cupfuls of water, then it tastes okay again.


Look behind the crisper in the fridge and see if it's molded inside the water reservoir. If it is you may be able to put some bleach in it to kill the mold and then run lots of water thru it to clean it out.

Ice in my ge frigerator smells and tastes like mold,in the fridge


I would suggest changing the plastic feeder tubing to the filter and the ice maker on the unit. Also, the ice maker units unplug and can be removed quite easily, you can also take that out and give it a thorough cleaning with warm soapy water, being a careful not to get water on any electrical parts.

Ice maker water taste like chlorine but tap tastes fine


Put a in-line water filter on the water line if you want. The taste is from the food and items you have in the refrigerator. Clean it out and keep your items in proper storage. Ice collects the smells in the line and the fridge. Change your ice that is sitting in the bin, wask out the bin with water and baking soda. Hope this helps.

Bad water & ice cube taste


Hello redwood City
Welcome

You said,
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.

First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE


When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing."



Whirlpool remedy
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.

Let me know what works,
Thank You ,
HUUUM!!
