    Hi,

    First Pull your refrigerator out away from the wall, turn off your water supply line that goes to it, then take off your water supply line from the water inlet valve, then get a bucket, cup, bowl, etc to catch the water, then put your water supply line in the bucket and turn it on, your water stream should be really good with good water pressure, if not then the problem is in your plumbing water supply line.

    Let us know how the water pressure is.

    Default About 1 quart per minute

    Thanks Jake, for the quick reply. I would say roughly 1 quart per minute, and I could stop it with my fingertip pretty easily. Not exactly blasting out of there, but not terrible, either.

    Then thats likely the problem. You shouldn't be able to stop the water pressure.

    Where does your water supply line hook-up to?

    A very LARGE problem in the last few years has been the self piercing shut off valveclogging up with calcium and junk! Replace the self piercing shut off valve with a drill type shut off valve. You drill a 1/4" hole into the pipe and install the shut off valve the same way you would with a self piercing valve.

    Great advice from Jake.

    I have also removed the self piercing shut off valve, drilled the same hole out a little bigger and put the same valve back on.

    The hole does not have to be much bigger. Most of the time you will see a bit of a burr left in the hole from when the self piercing shut off valve made the original hole. I drill it out just big enough to get a nice round clean hole.

    I turned off the water, drilled a slightly larger hole through the copper pipe and the rubber seal, put it back together, and it works great ! Thanks a lot guys !
