After moving house it has taken us 6 months to re-plumb our fridge back to the water supply. Now that it is all plumbed in and a new filter has been fitted the water and ice have a nasty taste to it, im wondering if the pipes inside the fridge/freezer need cleaning? if so how??

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.
the stem is part of a cartrige its either brass or plastic covered with about 6 " O " rings. it gets corroded in place. moen sells a cartrige puller. see a plumbing supply house such sa HUGHES SUPPLY or Ferguson or o local plumber.
Hello.Maybe the drain is blocked.it sounds like your machine is working ok to me,if you can hang the hose over the edge of a laundry tub & make sure the plug is out,see if the water drains away,otherwise it sounds like a plumbing problem not the machine.it started only after you moved houses so more likely the plumbing.hope i helped.
If your fridge has a water filter, you should change it every 3 months. An old filter can cause slow flow problems.
But it will never come out as fast as the kitchen sink. Depending on the location of your fridge, you have 10 to 25 feet of 1/4" pipe between your water glass and the high-flow plumbing, and water just won't move very fast through that.
