We have a new fridge with the old type automatic ice maker that dumps the cubes into the bin.<br /> <br /> We've dumped out 3 bins of ice due to a "plastic" taste. Should this issue be resolved soon or do I have to dump the ice for days before it tastes right?

I've never liked refrigerator ice machine cubes, even using a very high end water purification system. Taste terrible. I've been buying crystal clear bagged ice exclusively for a long time.

That's what I'm using right now, Bobby. We usually use the "good" ice for cocktails and the ice maker ice for water or iced tea.

The best way to get rid of the 'plasticky' taste is to run five loads of ice through it. Then run at least two gallons of water through the system (select "cold water" instead of "ice"). The taste comes from not only the ice tray, but also the water line feeding the fridge and the internal water tank.<br /> <br />

I installed an in-line filter on the water line.<br /> <br /> No complaints here, and I never drink the tap water here without putting it through a Brita pitcher first.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

We use the icemaker in the Kenmore fridge here at FDP HQ. We run an RO system for coffee, cooking, and ice and it's great. I have no idea if it was plastic tasting early on. <br /> <br /> In Peegoo we trust.

My fridge manufacturer (GE) says to run two gallons through the lines and dump 24 hours worth of ice each time you change the filters.

No water tap in the fridge, just an old timey ice maker. I guess we'll have to keep dumping it until it tastes ok.<br /> <br /> Thanks.

I have to run at least a dozen pots of clear water, and a few with coffee, through a new coffee maker before I cannot detect that awful plastic taste. I would be dumping that ice until it's right, because ice is important!
