disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. If it comes out good here Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws.
A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

We have a primo water dispenser, model # 900183 and the water is dispensing as one slow stream not a fast full stram of water as it use to. how do we fix that?

Had the same problem. I tried cleaning it as instruction on the copany website with bleach and water. I also unplugged it for a couple of days to see if the lines were frozen. Finally out of frustration I put my mouth on the water dispenser, pushed the button, and sucked some water out and spat it out. After that I did the same thing again but blew into it instead. I did this a couple of times and my water dispenser went from a trickle to flowing like the day I first got it. Also, you should probably clean the water dispenser after doing this, just saying.

Water does not flow

Sounds like air in the line.....the filter may be cracked/damaged, or not quite seated...?

since you've tried 2 new ones....I'm gonna bet they are not quite the correct ones for your fridge.

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.

I have a side by side refridgerator freezer. I have just connected the water to the ice make / water dispenser for the first time and just a short trickle of water flows into the ice cube maker - not

I would guess that you need to purge the air out of the lines and system for it to work correctly. You can hold down the water dispenser for awhile to help, but if you do nothing, it should purge itself over the next few days.

The hose inside the very long,I think maybe that is why I don't have good preasure in the water dispenser,can I cut it? and would it help

If you have a side by side the coiled tube in the back of the fresh food compartment is the resevior for the chilled water it goes there and gets chilled before being dispensed through the in door dispenser. LEAVE IT IN PLACE AND DO NOT CUT IT,
Instead if you havent already done so replaceyour water filter,if equipped with one it will be in the front grill below the freezer door, OR if you have checked it or it doesnt have one pull the refrig out and disconnect the water pressure coming into ref. from house plumbing, if it only trickles its restricted somewhere in the line and seek out why that is .

Water dispensed with good flow. model # KBFA20ERBL01 , I replaced water filter with recommended #4396395. Now water trickles at very low flow rate. What can I do? Thanks, Jess

Any time that you replace the water filter you need to run about 2 gallons through the dispenser. The new filter is full of air not water, you just need to flush the air out of the system. The trickle is water siphoning through because the air is still in the system.

Water is trickling down through where the ice dispenser depressor sticks out of the freezer door. The ice is getting soft. Water is trickling down under the framing for the ice /water dispenser on the...

By not being there seeing the amount or flow rate i'm not sure but from where your saying it's coming out, It sounds like this is either condensation from behind the framing or the flap that closes when your not getting ice is not closing. This could be a broken spring but if the flap is closing. There is a heater blanket behind the framing that heats and dries the condensation out. If it goes out, water will leak out from where your describing. Try going to and enter your model number. This should bring up diagrams of your unit. See if there is a heater that goes in your model. if there is, I'm pretty sure it will be bad and need replacing.

Disconnect the water line where it comes out of the water inlet valve and see how the flow is when you try the dispenser. Disconntct the water line at the bottom of the freezer door where it goes into the door. If it flows good here it may be freezing in the door. Open the door till it thaws.
If it's good at the inlet valve and slow at the door, some models have a way to put a plug in and bypass the filter.

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
