Plastic Ice Taste...

Posted by mrmagic (My Page) on

Hi All,
I relocated my refrigerator with a kitchen remodel and now my ice from the ice maker tastes like plastic.

The water coming out of the flexible stainless tube that connects with the fridge tastes fine but once connected to the fridge and frozen it tastes like plastic.

I have tried dumping the ice and remaking NUMEROUS times with no luck. The fridge is a bottom freezer kenmore with no water spout.

Help please!

"flexible stainless tube"

Is this a braid covered flex tube?

hey have a plastic core.
The flavor should eventually go away, but it can take a long time.

Copper tubing is usually more 'taste free.'
