Why water tastes bad in French Door fridge water dispenser?

Last Update Date : Apr 19. 2018

In case of initial installation :

 

Bad tasting / smelling water is most commonly experienced with the first few Litres of water the refrigerator dispenses. Samsung recommends you dispense 5-7 Litres of water after you initially set the water line up to flush the system.

Ice bucket is recommended to clean before using ice and do not use ice for 1 or 2 days and empty the ice box once it produces full of ice in ice bucket. 

 

In case of water flow route contamination :

 

When you install water connection, do not forget to install water filter before dispensing water. If you dispense water without water filter installationwater hose & water tank will be contaminated and hard to clean it back.

 

In case of filter contamination :

1 If your refrigerator is not brand new, and you are experiences an odour in the ice or water, replace the filter.
2 The filter may not be clogged, but it may be contaminated with excessive impurities.

After installing the new filter, flush the system by dispensing approximately 5-7 Litres of water.
