I have a Kenmore fridge that is about 3 years old. When I moved into
this house, the water dispenser (on the door) dripped so Sears came to
fix it (they replaced a valve where the water comes into the fridge -
and maybe adjusted it to reduce pressure???). I later found out that
my house had too strong of a pressure coming in from the meeter/street
(so I fixed that). Now the fridge water pressure seems very low (it
seems to take forever to fill up a glass of water). Any suggestions?
Is there an adjustment on the back valve? I looked but didn't see
anything too obvious. Please help if you have suggestions. Thanks.
Personally, I don't know. Never heard of them. I just know that
polyethyllene is bad.
I have woven stainless steel over a rubber washing machine supply
hose. In a size for an ice maker or a humidifier, what is inside the
woven stainless steel? Something must be inside the the woven plastic

What is the pressure in the line? It should be about 50 psi. At work, we
have 105 psi and no problems with anything. Did the change happen after you
reduced the pressure? Any other faucets or toilets affected?
Could be a few things. Saddle valve plugged, pressure too low, filter
plugged (some fridges have them built in), line kinked.
That water filter is the problem.
When new, it takes 22 seconds to fill a 16 oz bottle.
After 1 year it takes 65 secondes to fill.
I couldn't believe the price they wanted for that filter so I just
removed it and it now takes 20 seconds to fill.
I've now added a whole house water filter on the wall behind the
fridge. It takes 21 seconds to fill.
I have the proper amount of pressure coming into the house (recently
replaced the regulator - it is 50 psi, I think). Yes, there is a
filter in the fridge (on the front bottom panel - under the doors). It
may need to be changed... however, the pressure has been low with
previous filters new and old. I will try replacing the filter (or as
WM suggested, removing it completely). Thanks for all the advice
everyone! I really value these groups. - Hunter
