In response to Re: New Water Line for Refrigerator
: I would wonder how a supply line, unless it is kinked so as to not allow water through it, could cause an icemaker problem.

It could be hardwater scale which usually forms where the velocity of the water is the fastest. As it forms in the fast current it forms faster. An increase in velocity happens wherever there is a restriction of flow and the end of the 1/4" tubing usually used probably wasn't reamed and that would be an excellent place for scale to build. If a piece of something partially blocked the end of the tubing, if scale formed, it should form faster than in an open end.
