Either a clogged filter or a pinched line. Has it always been like this?

I have never used mine, I have the ice maker off and the water valve to the refer off. If I get some time I will turn it on and test it.

Yes we have the same problem with ours.We had the dealer in Nova Scotia take a look at it when they attached our refrigerator after it came loose but the tech said that he could not see anything wrong so I will add that to the list for LazyDays when I get back to Florida....Alan

pressure and flow are 2 different things.
Pressure is static, nothing is moving.

Flow is how that pressure maintains when you open the pipe.
Look at the filter. the screens. then look for any kinked hoses.

for what it is worth, our 08 knight with dometic z door fridge will fill a water glass as fast as the kitchen sink will.

Update on this.....I called Frigidaire support and they gave me a number to call....I had to leave a message (twice)....called support back, and they said they'd find a service guy and call me back....after 3 days, they called back to say that they couldn't find anyone to come and fix it, so they will replace it with a new one.

Not sure if there doing you any favours or not, but I guess a new fridge is one way to solve the problem

I really think it's great customer service, and I for one, won't forget it.
