Sounds like your water inlet valve is malfunctioning. This is a dual solenoid valve located in the back, behind the cardboard cover.

Why is the water on my kenmore refrigerator coming out so slow?


I do not know the unit but it sounds like the water filter has plugged. Just replace the filter and the problem will go away. The ice maker can fill very slowly and you would not notice it.

My frigidaire gallery french door refrigerator is making ice very slowly. the water is coming out fine. It is only 4 weeks old. i got solutions from frigidaire from the valve to the water filter. Any...


Hi,
The theory to making ice is temperature, water, and ice mold to function. What are the temperatures inside the freezer currently. It must be below 15 degrees to function and prefer the freezer to be at 0 degrees to product effectively. Are you ice cubes solid or hollow? If hollow you can jam the ice inside the ice maker causing slow production. Rare to have a water valve problem this young be is possible. I would look at temperatures first than cycle time to determine the next step. In a perfect world, your unit should drop ice every hour to and hour and a half.
Good Luck

The water dispenser is really slow coming out and it takes however to make ice. There is no kink in the water line to the fridge.


water stopped dispersing out of water dispense, No indication as to why. New filter was instlled, checked water line, no leakage indicated, ice maker had been making ice prior to this, turned off ice maker to avoid motor burn out.

Why would the water start coming out very slow?


If you are referring to water coming out the fountain it could be a leak in the system somewhere allowing air into the lines that run the water, if you are referring to water coming out of the ice maker itself you need a new ice maker the lining is bad

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator/freezer. I am getting really slow flow from water dispensor (outside freezer side door). It takes 20 seconds to fill up a glass of water.


check to see if your ice cubes are well formed or hollow / if hollow replace your filter 1st and if no good replace your water line / if cubes are large and well formed the replace your water valve to fix your water problem.

Jenn air Mdl#jcd2389ges Very slow water dispenser


You will probably find that if you have a water filter in your model refrigerator that is is clogged. Replace the filter and voila, good flow again. You probably also have small or hollow or chip ice cubes as well, if your filter is clogged.
To save the cost of the filter you would need to check to make sure you are getting strong water flow to the solenoid valve located in the bottom rear of your refrigerator.
I hope I helped, supertechks

Hollow Ice- Slow Ice!!


Hollow ice is a dead give away that there is not enough water filling the trays. Check that the line isn't pinched from pushing the unit back in place, etc. Also check any filters or filter screens in the water line to the ice maker.
