If you have a water filter, the filter might be too old and plugged. If you've replaced the filter or don't have one, I would check the water supply to the frige. You might have a kinked line. Also if you used a self piercing saddle valve on your plumbing supply it may be blocked. You would need to turn the water off to the house and replace it with a saddle valve that would require you to drill a hole in the water supply line. Also most friges have a tank in the frige to keep the water cold. If the frige is too cold it could freeze the tank. The average frige temp should be 35-36 deg.

Slow ice production on maytag fridge


Replace the water filter. If you replaced your water filter, depending on the fridge, they have two filter models. One is a fast fill filter (has less media and takes out less contaminants). The other filter is a better filter and takes out more contaminants (because it has more media) and will slow down the water pressure.

Slow water flow from water dispenser


Hi.

Either low pressure from the line, or blockage in fridge water hoses going to the dispenser.

If water pressure is OK, then the problem is often given by a blockage caused by water freezing in the fridge's hoses. Try doing a complete defrost.
If defrost does not help you will need to find blockage accessing the hoses, start from the inlet at the back of the fridge.
Do defrost first.

Regards.

Water runs slow


Check the inlet valve, check the pressure at the inlet of the fridge. Is low rectify your water supply section. If there is pressure at the inlet then there is block within in the valve or water line . Flushing the sections will solve.

Hi My fisher payel fridge with the under freezer has a built in ice maker and it has stopped working. What do I need to do to fix it?


Tell me more, why did it suddenly stop? What did you change? Did you turn off electric? Get anything water wise that is new? Did you lower the water pressure coming into your home? Where do you live - house, apartment?

I can't say why it quit, unless you left it running on "make a lot of ice" (some fridges have this option), were out of town and had some electrical issues, went through a big storm or changed the water coming into the fridge. These are the obvious reasons why you'd have an issue.

A little more detail, Please?

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

Low water flow after changing the water filter in a gf profile re


Just a suggestion, you could try installing a filter on the water supply line to the fridge. A nice one should dramatically lessen the frequency of replacing the one in the fridge. As for your the pressure being low, look for a kink or pinch in the water supply line.

Ice maker too slow


Ice makers will only drop cubes about every two hours. There is nothing you can do to speed it up. However, if you have low water pressure to the fridge, then you will have slow production. You need a minimum of 30-40 pounds (constant) of water pressure to the fridge for the ice maker to work properly. Things I typically see causing low pressure are: Self piercing saddle valves on the water line (need drill type), and reverse osmosis systems connected to the fridge. In some rare cases a very old water filter or limed up supply line.
