Why does my ice taste like plastic?
To avoid personal injury or death, disconnect your appliance from its power source before you start any troubleshooting or repair work. Use caution when working inside any appliance.
If you have a brand new refrigerator, or have just added an ice maker, the new plastic lines are still leaching out some of the plastic smell. Throw away the first batch or two of ice. If you have a water dispenser on your refrigerator, you may want to run some water through the dispenser and toss that out as well. After a few gallons of water have gone through the system, all of the plastic smell and taste should be gone.
