Re: water line clogged

To prove if it is the filter or associated pipe work connect an inlet hose direct from the tap to the inlet valve on the back of the unit,if this works then you have a defective filter, its not unknown. Regards Advisor

Re: water line clogged

No to air, due to the small bore of the pipework they usualy run slow this assists the water to cool as it lows through the unit. Regards Advisor

GE Refrigerator Water dispenser trickles

Side like a water supply issue or a kinked line. Good pressure at first then weak pressure after a short time is a restriction in the water flow.

Water dispenser isnt working. Water is slowed to a trickle and ice maker isn't getting enough water to make cubes. We have checked the line from the wall for clogs and it is clear.

Is there a water filter in the unit and if so, when was the last time you changed it? If there is a water filter and the flow of water to the dispenser and icemaker could be impeded by a filter full of "stuff".

There are 3 types of the PSW26P. They are basically the same when it comes to changing water filters. I do not recommend placing air into the water system, I believe that is what at this point is the problem. After changing water filter there is a period of time that you need to push the dispense water switch to allow for the air that is trapped in filter to purge. One moment I will send links, Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped working

The water line may be clogged with debris. there is sometimes a filter in the water line to the fridge, or also a screen filter may be located at the point where the water line connects to the fridge. If they are clogged, your ice maker will not make ice and may even burn out.
Check that the water in the line is flowing freely. Also it might be a good idea to defrost the freezer in case you have a ice buildup in the freezer compartment. To do that, empty the freezer and blow air into the freezer for 30 minutes while the power if off. Note, keep the other side closed to protect the milk and other perishables.

The ice maker in my Jenn Air refrigerator stopped working.

Check that there wasn't a clog in the line after replacing the filter. Make sure you get water going to the solenoid, if so, it may either be a clog in the solenoid or a fluke that it's no longer working.

You have another plugged filter. That is why you ice cubes are hollow, the water is flowing so slowly into the ice maker, it does not fill up.

Recommend you install an external filter somewhere in the feeder line that connects to the rear of the refrigerator. The are surprisingly inexpensive, compared to the filter inside the new 'fridges. I recommend you buy a replacement external filter cartridge at the same time you buy the external filter kit. Of course you will need to change the internal filter one more time or bypass it per any instructions provided with your fridge.

Water dispenser is just a trickle

the biggest culprit for slow water dispensing aside from the filter is the water supply its self. check to make sure the water line isnt kinked behind the refrig, if thats ok then disconnect the water line from the refrig and run water into a bucket and observe your water flow. good water pressure would basicly fill a 2 gallon bucket in less than a minute. much less than that can cause problems. hope that helps peyton

Water won't flow from GE Smart Water under-sink RO water filter

Disconnect the water pressure tank making sure the end the line hooks up to is open. The tank should be relatively light, and if you shake it you should not hear any water. If you hear water in it, or it feels heavy, that means the bladder inside the tank has failed. Replace the tank with a new one, and set the pressure on the bicycle type valve at 8 PSI before you connect the tank up to the water line.
