Question about Refrigerators
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you just changed the filter you have to remember that new filter did not come pre-filled with water. It will take up to a day for it to fill with water. There is a possibility that the new filter if it is a latch type / turn and lock filter that it is not locked into place. There is also the possibility that the wrong filter was installed. Example a kick panel filter PN ends in 10 while there are other turn and lock filters used on other models that ends in 08. They are not interchangeable.
If you have a behind the unit "in line" filter... same story it can take the better part of a day to fill the filter. A normal ice maker water demand is 120 to 140 cc per cycle. (7.5 seconds of fill time with a tiny supply line)
If you need more help with filter verification we will need your make and model number along with the part number of the NEW filter you installed.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
