Why does the water to the ice maker and water despensor run extremely slow when the new water filter is installed.

The water to the water despensor and ice marker started running extremely slow. The water inlet valve was replaced. When I installed the new water filter the water continued to run slow. With the water filter removed, it run normal. WHY?

check the ice maker, the motor module on these is real bad about the shaft snapping. take out the icemaker and remove the white cover. if you can take the round gear off then the shaft is broken you can probably find the other piece in there if it didnt fall out when you opened it up the module is easy enough to replace make sure the heater on the mold assembly is still good

You did remember to turn it back on? Mine has a handle that detects when the tray is full and you flip it up to turn it off and down to turn it on. Good Luck

try this:

1. Remove the bucket from the door to get some room.

2. Put a piece of tape on the sensor flapper to hold it down so you won't damage it while removing the ice maker.

3. Remove the ice maker service cover door by spreading the two hinge fingers apart away from the center and the door should lift out of the slot.

4. Remove the screw in the right rear bottom side of the ice maker.

5. After removing the screw that cover should lift up from the rear and just work it out from the rear and you see the electrical harness.

6. On the left track the should be a tab toward the bottom which you need to push up.

7. Push up tab and start working the ice maker towards you pulling it out of the track.

8. Careful with the electrical harness in the back as you're pulling out.

9. Disconnect the electrical plug by lifting the clip on the plug.

10. Remove the side cover on the side module by pulling off.

11. Remove the bottom shield by removing the 3 screws on the bottom.

12. To install reverse the order as it came out.

This is a common issue with water dispensers in the door. This can be caused by a couple of things, the most common being, air in the line. Proper bleeding of the system will eliminate the issue. Leaking water valves' can cause the same issue, and is the second most common issue.

SOURCE: My Kitchen Aid Superba side by side ice maker is

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Water dispenser running slowly


Hello Cynthia;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a water pressure problem. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to open the solenoid valves. I suspect you are getting small ice cubes.

If you have well water you are not going to get the pressure for fully dispenser flow.

I have experienced bad water filters. One time our techs received a large shipment of bad water filters. Remove the water filter and test the water dispenser.

With low water pressure you may not want to use a water filter

HAVE A KENMORE FRIDGE M.#106.74253400 WATER DESPENSOR STOPPED WORKING AN CAN HEAR IT HUMMING AN ALSO THE ICE MAKER WORKS SO I NO ITS GETTING WATER? THANKS


my kenmore did the same thing, It had a duel water solenoid on it and one that let water into the door water dispenser went bad. also my ice cube started to get smaller, the rubber in the other side of the water solenoid was dry rotting and eventually ruined the ice maker. I replaced the duel solenoid and ice maker and had no more problems.The solenoid is on the back of the fridge, it is what the main water supply connects to.

Ice Maker is making ice but at an extremely slow pace. The Ice Maker has been in the "On" position for approximately 48 hours and the pan is only 1/4 full.

Icemaker has always been slow. It produces ice, just a couple or 3 times a day. We have to keep our old fridge running just to get enough ice... Cubes are full size, freezer is 0 degrees, not much...


Hi,
The main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Water runs extremely slow and the ice maker continously gets jammed


Could be a few things. The first most obvious thing would be to replace your refrigerator's filter as it may be clogged.

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

The water despensor and the ice maker both stopped working


sounds like your folter may be plugged up or frozen, the water goes to the filter first then to the dispenser and ice maker look there first.

Ice Maker


First, are you getting water at the door? If not, the filter is installed wrong or there is some packing on the filter you didn't remove.
