The water in the door comes out real slow

The water pressure from the door is coming out real slow. I checked the connection to the water line and the pressure is good. I can tell that it's something with the refrigerator. I can't see any kinks in the lines that are visible. What else can I look at?

Ice maker makes hollow cubes and water thru the door runs real slow

If your water line is the right size, then what has probably happened is that you have ice build up in the line. You need to take everything out of your freezer, and check for ice. Blow a hair dryer on the warm setting at the point the line comes into the freezer! I have to do this to mine every once in a while!

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.

The water pressure for drinks is really really slow. checked all the lines and they all seem ok. Just bouth a filter so it should be that. Any suggestions

check the valve where the water line is connected to the house water supply,if it's one of those self tapper valves it could be the valve is bad or the hole has to be opened up one size more.shut down the house water supply then go to the back of the fridge,disconnect the water feed line,stick it in a bucket and have someone turn the water back on,if it's coming out slowly there then you know it's that valve,shut the water off again,remove the tapper valve and drill out the hole one size bigger and see if that helps,if it doesn't change the valve.if the water is coming out with force then you most likely have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge,sediment gets in them and plugs them up and the valve should be changed out.

The water supply line going up thru the freezer door has frozen. Quick way to test is to disconnect incoming line at bottom of freezer door and close door and activate switch to see if water getting to the door at least. If it is then you will have to defrost the line in the door with a hair dryer. The area that freezes is near the switches. Slow process but will work. or unplug for 24 hours which is real inconvenient.

Water in the door continues to drip after use

The water lines if not tight in their connections can pull in air which creates extra pressure in the lines and pushes the water out slowly till the pressure levels out. The first thing I do to try and find the problem spot is use my thumb to block the water spout while pushing in the dispenser paddle to create extra pressure in the line and see if water comes out anywhere in the lines. Keep a towel handy cause after your push the paddle for a few seconds you will feel the water pressure under your thumb build and when your thumb cant take it any longer or your done testing that water is going to come out. Not a lot but enough for a towel. If no water comes out unfortunatley you will have to follow each water line and look at every connection point in the water valve, and at the bottom of the freezer door. I will even pull the lines out of the conection and cut a small piece of the line off clean before putting the line back in to improve the connection. Hopefully this helps.

Water in door too slow coming out

A strainer before the inlet valve can get stopped up restricting flow. It's on the back where the water supply connects.

You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see how fast the water comes out when you try the dispenser. If it's slow here there is a valve our water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Whirlpool ED22PE refrigerator in-door water dispenser very slow

remove the saddle clamp that some idiot put on the supply line under your sink and splice in a real "T" with a real cutoff. hopefully the saddle clamp is past your main valve and not before it or you'll have to turn off all your water first.

Water in refrigerator door coming out slow

Hi Ben22 Sounds like some thing pluging the water line or the water line pinched some where.. if the hole was 1/4 inch you should get enough water with that big of a hole. I would check the water line for a obstruction. Let me know if this helps. Krazytech
