SOURCE: water from dispenser slows down while filling cup

If your water is slowing down the screen on the water valve may be stopped up or the filter (if it has one, when was it last changed?) or line feeding the refrigerator may be stopped up or the water valve its self may not be opening all the way and staying open.

To eliminate 3 of the external problems take the water line off the fridge and run some water into a pan and open and close water like at your kitchen sink and see if the water slows or speeds up noticeably while running into the pan. If so the problem is in the water line. While you have thew line off remove and inspect the water inlet valve screen and replace the hose washer (if so equipped) this brings your problem if you have not found it yet to the inside of the fridge. Usually on the corner of the door hinge the water line makes a turn up to the dispenser inspect it there and see if its twisted or kinked. Also there is a water resiviour inside the fridge look there for the same thing and possibley where food may have been forced agianst the line.

If you still dont find it by now I'D have to know what you did find and where.

If this helps you please rate me with as high a rating as you can and thank you for using fix ya.

SOURCE: the cold water dispencer freezes in my amana

The water line runs through the door and this is where it freezes. It's usually defetive insulation. Other than replace the door you may can tape or other wise fasten more insulation to the inside of the door in the area you think it's freezing in.

SOURCE: Proper refrigerant levels for Amana Side by Side refrigerator

Hi, normally the suction pressure on a refrigerant -22 system will be between 60 pounds gauge pressure (which keeps it above freezing point) and about 80 pounds. This depends on the temperature condition.Make sure that the superheat and subcooling are correct to see what is to be considered normal for the conditions you have present.

Take care

SOURCE: How do you get to the water shut off in the door

The water in the door is controlled by the switch you push for water which opens the valve which is the water inlet valve on the rear of the fridge/freezer. It's where your water supply connects to the fridge on back. Yours is sticking open sometimes causing your problem. You need to replace the dual water inlet valve. Part 14 on this Diagram and parts list is your dual water inlet valve.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

it could be the differential in pressure between the cold water from your booster pump and the hot water from your solar water heater . the cold water which feeds your solar heater is probably being reduced in pressure by a pressure reducing valve . so what you need is equal pressure on both your hot and cold water system you could install a pressure reducing valve on the pipe thart feeds your cold taps etc valve set at the same pressure as the one on the solar water heater that would give you a balanced hot and cold water system

Will not fill with hot or cold water and is connected


You need good water pressure on hot for these machines to work, gravity fed systems may not be enough. I had to attach a pump to mine to improve the hot water pressure (UK)
Switch over the inlet pipes ie hot to cold and cold to hot and try filling the machine when switched to fill with hot water, (machine will fill will cold). proving the valve is opening and it is a pressure issue on you hot water.

A plumber has just installed a shower which has uneven water supply pressure. The low pressure hot water from a head tank had a 3/4" pipe supply whichin spite of being questioned the plumber has reduced...


Hello,
You aren't the first to run into this dilemna.

The size of thhe pipe will affect your system in this way.
If you start 85lbs of pressure in the water main, The meterhas a 1" pipe inlet and a 3/4" outlet. The meter reduced thhe pressure to60 psi and then it is reduced again at the point of entering the structure dropping to 1/2" pipe. By resucing the pressure is upped approx 5-7 lbs. The point of regulator and pipe size is the only time the pressure changes. The lowest pressure will drive a rainbird spribkler,actually several. But too many rainbirds won't affect by pressure as much as volume. The pressure will push whatever is available.By reducing the 3/4 to 1/2" didn't affect your pressure as much as it did your volume.. The reason your hot water starts to run cold sooner is that now you do not have the volume ratio between the cold and hot.It 's 1:1 now instead of 1.25:1. Hot more than cold. It takes more hot water to heat cold water than ittakescold to cool hot. Plus, the hot water you use is being replaced by cold water and that water is cooling what hot water is in the tank as the heat moves to the cold. The heater cannot heat al that water fast enough, but the cold water line is happy as can be.No pressure changes and no temperature changes. Before, you had to turn up the cold to bring the temp down to comfortable or safe. I just had my shower redone and everything is the sme size. Here is something to think about. Ck the shower head. They clog up and cause poor mixing over time. Yoou should be ok. How old is the water heater? Over time they get a build up of calcium and lime which is very detrimental to the heaters efficiency and recovery time. I hope this all made sense to you. At times when we have things done right it seems to be wrong because we are accustomed to the way it was. You will get accustomed to it and find your water heater gobbling less energy. Good luck and I hope it all works out, There is no need to fret. Sincerely -Ned-

Cold water pressure is very low. Checked water line and screen. Hot water flows without a problem. Cold water sometimes starts fast and then reduces to a trickle.


Do you have a regular "boiler drain" type valve for your cold water supply? Is it possible your washer came loose inside the valve like mine did?

You will of course have to turn off the water mail to check this.

The water does not flow to the softener reservoir of my maytag neptune tl.


most likely problem is to low of cold water pressure. if you set it to cold/cold, and the water coming in doesn't have much pressure, the screen on the cold water valve could be plugged. turn the water off to the washer, remove the water hoses from the washer inlet valve in the back of the washer. look in the inlet valve, there is a screen. if it has sand and debris, clean the screen, hook hoses back up, and check the pressure on cold again. if it has more pressure, this should allow water into the softener reservoir. Also- make sure you take the softener reservoir out, and clean both pieces. make sure the syphon holes are clear. hope this helps. shane

Why is my warm water is cold? The hot is hot and cold is cold but warm is cold.


There is too much pressure on the cold feed, reduce the pressure on the cold by partly closing off the tap on the cold.
Or ensure the hot feed is fully open and not blocked, check if there are filters inline - remove the feed pipes at the washer end and look into the inlet valves - clear if blocked.
The inlet valve is common to hot and cold water with only a small pipe to fill the machine, the cold water is being forced back up the hot water pipe due to the pressure you can feel the pipe cool down after running hot then go to warm, if hot water is flowing the pipe will stay hot, if not then cold is going up the hot pipe.

Low cold water pressure


Could be sticking plunger in valve, if youn have ascertained that the pressure is o/k,\then I would suggest a new valve is called for.
