Customer Question

We have an LG side by side. For several months, our food has an odd taste. Especially butter, sour cream, ice, etc. My husband thought it was all in my head; however, he does taste it as well, and my son who was visiting a few weeks ago, noticed that it tasted funny. I have no way to identify the taste. Can't think of anything to liken it to. It's just not pleasant in the least, and though I've put the packaged butter in zip lock bags, it continues to still taste odd, and literally ruins anything we use it in or on.

OK have you tried an activate charcoal filter in your unit? If not try this CLICK HERE

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't believe we have the filter in because we have a home filtering system and didn't need it.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

That is a refrigerator filter that you can buy and put in the unit. It should solve the issue.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is the filter available only at dealers who sell LG appliances?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.


It just hangs in the refrigerator and you can also find it at some Target stores as well.

All I ask is please rate my service thanks
