Default getting the soda smell/flavor out of a corny keg

I recently got a corny keg from a local commercial bev supplier and I haven't been able to get the soda smell and flavor out of it. Its not totally overpowering, but definitely there and definitely coming through a bit on the stout I'm pouring out of it on the kegerator right now. Any suggestions on a thorough treatment to really get this thing so its not contributing any aroma/flavor to my beer?

I fill mine with water, then some baking soda and let it sit for 24hours. Always worked for me, I'm sure there are other options.

Start by COMPLETELY taking it apart....and throw all the rubber away.
Then over night soak in PBW (or OxyClean) and HOT water.
Put back together with new o-rings....good to go.
