Question about Viking Refrigerators
I take a hair dryer to it every couple of weeks and have already changed water valve.
You aren't using enough ice to keep the water moving. You could also try some insulation on the pipe?
Or you could fit a heater kit?

Sounds to me that you attached a bulet piercing valve to a cold water pipe. If you did I would say the tiny hole that the valve put into the pipe has blocked up and causing your low water pressure. I have sen this problem a million times with that type of valve. You could try to close the valve and then open it back up. Sometimes this will clear the hole. If not I would replace the valve with the type of valve you have for your sink. there better in every way. You may need to have a plumber do the job for you but you will never have this problem again. Good luck

SOURCE: Ice maker is freezing up
The solenoid valve can leak slightly to make your problem. To check it, undo the tube from the solenoid to the freezer with the solenoid unplugged, and the water pressure on. Any leakage is bad, replace it.

Do you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door ? if you do then the water pipe in the door is probably frozen - read new door ! if not then check thw electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door as they have a habit of corroding.

I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.
