Whirlpool side by side ice maker not working

I have just moved into a property which has been vacant for 9 months and as a result the fridge has had no power to it..
On moving in we ran it up for 24 hours and all appeared to be ok, however the water filter light is flashing which is an obvious cure and the ice maker isn't making any ice, but the motor is turning ok
Is the filter issue affecting the ice maker?
Most of the filter indicator lights are timed to light up every six months or so to let you know to change the filter. If it has been a lot over six months since the filter has been changed the filter will clog and you will not get water through the door. Change the filter and the icemaker may go back to work.
Also a common thing that can occur when people are moving in and out of a home is the water can get cut off before the refrigerator is turned off (or vice versa). What happens in this scenario is the tube that feeds the icemaker water will clog with ice. If this is the case clean the ice out and the refrigerator will most likely be repaired and if it does it again replace the water valve because it will also cause this problem.
