Viking fridge water and ice not working

I have a Viking 42'' built-in fridge. The ice maker isn't getting any water and the water dispenser not working either. When the button is pushed, I can hear the pump engage but nothing comes out. Could a clogged filter cause this problem?

Yes....a totaly clogged filter COULD cause the problem, but the water solenoid may be the culprit. I'd call a service company to look at it.

What is the problem that ice maker is not working. Why the ice cube cannot make? Even I changed the water filter.

There are two solenoid valves usually at the bottom of fridge in the back. These valves control the water to ice maker and water dispenser. They are replaced as a set. This is the first place to look. Generally this valve goes bad and solenoid does not open when ice maker signals it to open.

How do I remove a Viking side by side refrigerator from the wall cabinet it is in?

There are adjustable wheels on front. Jack up front enough to grab the frame and pull out slowly. Be careful if you have water line for ice maker.

No ice

put your finger into the mold of the icemaker or get a mirror and see if there is any water in it, if not, pour 5 oz. of water into the mold and wait approx. 2 hours, if ice dumps out then you have a water supply problem. the fill tube line entering the the mold could be iced up, if it is then your water valve maybe leaking and freezing up. also the water valve may not be opening up and may need to be replaced if it still doesn't dump out the water you poured in the you will have a problem with the icemaker itself
