Q:

Why is the water from my drinkiing dispensor on my Kenmore refrigerator model #79551036010 started to taste chemically like plastic?

A:

The water from the dispenser not tasting good can be an inconvenience and keep you from enjoying some purified water. I did some research and I was able to find a link that will provide you with some good information. I hope this helps with your water dispenser troubles while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you. We have run multiple gallons of water through since changing the filter and the smell/taste still returns. Incoming supply line is copper.

I share your distaste over bad tasting water coming from the refrigerator. You have taken all the right first steps to find and correct this problem. The process of elimination leaves the water reservoir. The plastic coils may have deteriorated and taken on this unpleasant taste and smell.

I recommend replacing the water reservoir, which is usually located behind the crispers. Be sure to disconnect power to the unit first and turn the water supply off to the refrigerator.

You will need to remove the crispers to replace this reservoir. See second image. There will be a connection on both ends of the reservoir that you will need to disconnect and the reservoir will pull out. See third image below. One side of the reservoir will connect to the water valve behind the refrigerator and the other side connects to a connection under the freezer door. There will be a connection on both ends of the reservoir that you will need to disconnect and the reservoir will pull out. See the first image to see what the reservoir looks like. It is a coil of tubing.

The water reservoir (water tank) is part #MJM61904701. You can order here; Sears Parts Direct .

After replacing the reservoir, you will need to go through the process of purging about three gallons of water through the system again. I hope this leaves you with fresh tasting water. Please reply to the same thread if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
