I recently replaced the PUR filter and hooked up the water line to the fridge. We never had the line hooked up since our other fridge didn't have a dispenser. The Ice maker and the water dispenser works, but the ice doesn't taste like it's filtered and the water flow is coming out slowly. I turned the valve underneath our sink to fully open and still the water comes out slow. Any ideas what could be going on? My wife doesn't like to use the ice maker because of the way it tastes.

Thanks.

Did you bleed the air out of the system? Wait until the ice maker makes about five or six batches then dump them out. It should get better.
