Model number JFC2089HTB When I change the water filter there

Customer Question

Model number JFC2089HTB When I change the water filter there is a sudden rush of water as I would expect with the new filter, but within a few seconds the flow is reduced to about the same as it was before the filter change. Have verified the filter number.

There may be some air in the system flush the system a little more and it might go back to normal if not, the remove the water line off of the water inlet valve and look for debris or anything that might have the valve stopped up some, this especially the case when you have copper water lines connected to the unit calcium deposits tend to build up and clog up the line, if you find nothing that could be clogging it up, then replace the water inlet valve because the solenoid is not allowing the valve to open up properly.
