Water dispenser is slow

3 possibilities.
1. Water pressure is low going into the fridge- the way to test this is turn the water off, remove the line from connection in the back of the fridge and put it in a bucket to see the flow. The water should be shooting out with good pressure. If it is not, then you have a plumbing issue, likely at the valve under your sink.
2. Water filter is clogged- If your model has a water filter, it should be changed every 6 months.
3. Bad water valve. The solenoid valve in the fridge, right at the back where the water connects could be going bad and not opening all the way.

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.

Water flow is slower than the normal. we check the saddle valve, lately we changed the water filter from that day on water flow is very slow.

In some models it creates an automatic by-pass when the filter is removed. If this is one of those models remove the filter and use the dispenser with it out. If you get good pressure now, it indicates a problem in the filter housing. If it's still slow it could be due to low supply water pressure or a defective valve. You can check the water at the valve inlet and outlet. First turn the inlet (main) water supply valve off. Now disconnect the water inlet line at the valve and place the end of it in a pitcher. Turn the water valve back on and check if there is a good solid water flow. If the water flow is good reconnect the water to the valve and now take the water line loose on the back side of the valve. Activate the water dispenser and check how the water flow is coming out of the valve. You will probably need another person to help you with this check. If the water seems slow, then the valve will need to be replaced.

Water dispenser in the freezer door has a constant slow drip, how do I fix it?

You will need to replace the water valve. It is located in the back rear of refrigerator. If it is leaking by then you will see drip. Before you replace valve make sure the water pressure of water supply is proper. The valves will not seal properly without proper pressure.

The water dispenser pressure is very slow and the ice maker works very slow also. Could this be a problem in the line.

Yes it could! If your house water pressure is good inspect the line for kinks, if you find none then check the actual connection to your cold water supply. Saddle valves are easy to install but use a very small hole that is prone to easy blockage and restriction. You may be able to help by turning it off and then back on.
Lastly check your filter if this unit has one, a restricted filter will cause the same symptoms.
good luck!

Ge profile refrigerator slow water dispenser

you have a seperate valve for ice maker and water dispenser, though it is possible both could have debris preventing proper water flow, i would check the water pressure you have going into the valve solenoid housing. turn off water to fridge, disconnect the line at the fridge, not in basement at saddle valve. place end of tube in bucket, turn on water. how is pressure? good or slow? if its good, then you probably do need to replace valve solenoid housing. You can NOT clear debris out of these, they must be replaced.
If your water pressure is still not good, either y ou have a kink in plastic water line. Despite having changed saddle valve in basement, if the stem of saddle valve is mounted on bottom half of pipe, debris from pipe is getting into water line and so on.

The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure
. Disconnect the ice maker line from the water inlet valve valve(on the back where the water supply connects). and watch to see if it has a slow drip.

Ge side by side refrigerator/freezer. Water flow is very slow from water dispenser. I have changed the water filter but water flow is still very slow. What might the problem be?

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.

Water supply very slow to the ice maker.

Is the water slow coming out of the water dispenser? Your fridge should have the same water pressure as any sink in your house. Most of the time low water supply is from thw water valve in your basement or under the sink or wherever your is hooked up. Most people use piercing valves and they always plug up

Ice maker very slow

Sometimes the water supply can need to be replaced if the water pressure to the refrigerator is slowing. To check turn the water supply off to the refrigerator and pull it out and remove the water line. Have someon turn the water back on while you spray it into a bottle or a bowl. Check the pressure. If the flow is slow then you may need to replace the water supply line and the valve. If the water pressure is good then the problem is in the refrigerator. The icemaker cycles off of themerature. If the freezer is not getting cold enough then it may only cycle a few times a day or a few times a week. If this is the case then the refrigerator will need some service to determine why the refrigerator is not cooing good enough. You can put a thermometer in the freezer and make sure it is getting to 0 degrees. If it is getting to 0 and the water pressure is good then the line in the refrigerator can be clogged or the inlet valve on the refrigerator may not be opening completely. You can replace the valve and that will solve the problem. The valve number is
