Resolved Question:

I have a Jenn-Air french door refrigerator (circa 2005). The filtered-water dispenser worked fine in the past. It started to run slow; I changed the filter; it continues to run veryu slow. I replaced the filter with the by-pass cap. It runs fine! Any suggestions for using the filter and having adequate flow again?

Try a different kind/brand of filter. If it still doesn't work, then the receptacle tabs aren't pressing down as far as they need to and you'll want to replace the receptacle. Installing the filter should have little affect on the water pressure and the water should still flow at about 80% of what it does with a by-pad cap installed.
