Could these two conditions be related? I tried replacing the water filter and that helped a bit for a while. It will literally take me a minute + to get 8 oz of water out of this thing. The water filter doesnt seem to be the issue as it didnt really improve things. Might of shaved 10 seconds of the fill rate. I tried finding a search function on this forum to see what else has been posted on this topic but dont see that function. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you using any external Water Filters or an RO (reverse osmosis) water system ?

How strong is the pressure on the supply line feeding the fridge?
was a pierce-type saddle valve used?
remove the line from the rear and let it flow into a bucket...is the stream strong and robust?
if not, there is your issue...

No other water filters used. gate valve is used off cold supply at sink. Normal pressure is present. Maybe I will just bypass it. I dont really care if the water is filtered or not. Wife probably will though...

If you have normal pressure going to the water valves and weak pressure coming out then your valves might be gook'd up. What's your water source?
