2 Month old fridge making ice taste BAD!

I just bought a NEW Samsung fridge about 2 months ago and all the sudden the ice tastes HORRRIBLE! I have cleaned the ice tray and the inside of the ice maker and it still tastes so bad! The water is fine so I know it's not the filter. I have run out of ideas on what to do to fix it!

Re: 2 Month old fridge making ice taste BAD!

The first few gallons of water in a brand-new fridge may taste or smell bad, and so too will any ice made from that water. We recommend dispensing 2 to 3 gallons of water to flush the system, and throwing out the first batch of ice the fridge ever makes.


If the refrigerator isn't new and the ice or water just started to taste or smell bad, the recommendation is to replace the filter.


Once the new filter is installed, dispense approximately 2 to 3 gallons of water.



If the water or ice still tastes or smells bad after you've replaced the filter, there might be a problem with the water supply. Contact a professional plumber for further assistance.
