If the water flow was OK before the filter change I would think you somehow got a bad new filter. I haven't heard of that too often but I guess it could happen. Otherwise look for a partial blockage in the main water line to the back of the refrigerator.
I understand the correct manufacturers number for the PuriClean II water filter for your refrigerator should be UKF8001 or UKF8001AXX, that you have the correct filter, and you have plenty of water out of the dispenser when the filter is not installed. If all that information is accurate you have 30 pounds or more water pressure (although the minimum is 20 pounds the higher the pressure the better for flow will be), then I would try holding the filter under the faucet to be certain the water flows through the filter without a lot of resistance. If that checks out, I would look for a gasket or some other part from the old filter that is stuck in the filter housing.
Check the supply line and valve to see if any dirt or foreign.matter got into the line or valve when you changed out your faucet. if this is not the problem you may have a faulty faucet. You may be able to back flush the faucet with a garden hose by leaving the hot side open, but you will get wet. If you used Teflon tape on the supply line and it is a compression fitting, some of the tape could be blocking the water. for more info go to waterheaterflush.com
Hi .. first I would try and eliminate the filter as the problem. Remove the filter and try the water again. If the water flows strong, then the filter is the problem. If the water stills sputters and is low flow, then there is a partial blockage in the internal tubing , or a problem with the supply. If you roll the fridge out to get at the suppl. you could shut it off and disconnect the supply tube from the fridge, then turn the water on slowly to check the flow at the supply. If the flow is good there , then the blockage is internal.
Could be low water pressure coming into the refrigerator or some kind of partial blockage in the water tubing within the refrigerator. I would first check at the on-off valve that connects the house water to the refrigerator tubing. Turn off the valve, disconnect it from the refrigerator line, hold the valve over a bucket, and open the valve. Does the water flow look good? The openings in these valves are very small and are easily stopped up with mineral deposits.
If the water flow is good at the valve, the problem is somewhere within the refrigerator tubing. I have found that plastic weedeater line is good for opening up blockages in these lines.
Try replacing the water Filter also remove the airator on the end of the faucet and see if water comes out all the time. If it does clean the air rater by washing the sand out of it to do this flush it out in the revers direction of the screen. You may have to use a tooth pick to clean out the holes to allow water to flow. Also try hot watr side to see if it flows out there at all, if it does not then you need a new filter or you need a new screen on the air rater on the end of the faucet.
