If the fill tube continues to drip water the fill valve is likely going bad. Is there a water filter in the system that you can check? Did you flush the main line in the back into a pan for a few seconds while you had it off to check flow rate, etc.?

I have a Jenn-air JSD2789GEQ the ice maker was working but now has quit , the water is working but slow and not much preasure


Most likely your inlet valve is bad. To test this disconnect the hoses from the inlet valce. One line is from your home the other two are the ones you disconnect. Test the door water first. After that switch the quick connects that run to the inlet UNPLUG fridge first. Switch connections plug back in and than test water in door again. See how much water is coming out. If plenty of water than in may be in your reservoir or your filter. If low pressure disconnect water line from home and see if you have good pressure If you have good pressure from the house than replace the inlet valve. If you dont than check house water pressure.If you have any questions please feel free to comment me.

My washer cold water wont work the supply is good and it puts out hot water whats wrong


If I understand your issue correctly, you're saying no cold water gets to the machine. If that's true, then do the following:

Turn off the hot and cold water to the machine
Disconnect the cold water hose to the machine - catch the water from the hose in a small container
Check for a plugged water inlet screen - this is pretty common
Clean the screen, reconnect the hoses, turn on the water, check for leaks and try again
If no luck, you may have a bad cold water inlet fill valve, but it's much more likely to be a plugged screen

Water wont go all the way into the ice maker


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
Or
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Clogging Frequently -- Very slow brew


Hello enrichyourli,
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have you machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ

Water Fill Issues


try unscrewing the hose at the back of the machine. There should be another filter there. If this doesn't solve the problem replace the fill valve. This part is not expensive. Take the old one with you. a generic is much cheaper. I have bought new for under $5. You can fix this yourself.
