Depends how old the Viking is?
Older Vikings with icemakers with a arm on the side, simply lift
the arm up until locks.
Newer Vikings with Electronic Controls look for a "slide switch"
mounted on the right side of front interior trim. You will see a
red led light usually blinking on and off near the slide.

One thing that can cause this s the removal of the styrofoam block that surrounds the water reservoir. A lot of people think this is just for shipping but it is necessary to prevent the water freezing.

If it is missing it ill need to be replaced.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

water in pan should evaporate of its own accord. you may have two faults. first, check door seals to see they mate with cabinet. if seals don't seal properly, excessive air will get in and hence the excess of ice. second, you should not have ice build up. remove back panel of freezer and check if evaporator has excessive ice build-up. if so, this points to a fault in the defrost system

Replacing the magnetic door seal might help, at least for awhile. Before replacing it, check for even sealing around the entire perimeter. Check the "flex" of the seal. Check for foreign matter in or on sealing surfaces. Check hinges for binding or misalignment. Apply some kind of marker (catsup comes to mind) to the entire gasket, close the door and inspect for gaps. Clean up promptly.
