I just moved into a new house and the fridge is not dispensing water with any vigor. All I get is a slow stream or a drip. I did some research and found the solution to install the heater to make sure the line doesn't freeze. So I ordered one online only to go home and look and see it already installed. When I put my ear up to the fridge and listen for the click, i do hear it, and I do hear a slight hum. Water does come out, however it's slow and sometimes just stops. I also put a hair dryer to it, for 15 minutes with no change.

Is there a water pump that provides pressure so water comes out at a fast rate?

The fridge makes ice and dispenses it just fine. There doesn't see to be a problem there. It's just with the water pressure.


Any advice?

Thank you,
Barry

normally, it would seem to be a clogged Water Filter,
but on that model, the the dispensed water, and the IceMaker water is filtered.
There is no water "pump", just a Water Valve that lets the House water pressure flow.
It may be a bad Water Valve, or a clogged inlet screen on the Valve.

The icemaker on this one, if it has the green LED, is "smart" enuff to compensate for low pressure...

Install the bypass plug or a new filter and see if it s better.

They said if you took the filter off, the water would still run. I took the filter off and still had the same results.

Whats the bypass filter do? I already have a new filter on order.

How could I get to the clogged screen? Where is the valve? Where would that be? I'll be sure to check them all tonight

not true..

the bypass does what the name implies...allows water to flow thru the filter base without a filter in place.
the screen is in the watervalve...may not be servicable.

have a helper press the water switch while checking the flow right out of the valve... disconnect the larger of the two lines from the valve and observe ...

Thank you for all your answers. The problem was the water filter. I put in a new filter and water flowed normally.
