When you open the door the light comes on right? This is with a spring loaded switch in the frame. When you open the door the water and ice also do not work because the door is open. Have you checked the switch?
Number 608
Your model number needs to be rechecked. I grabbed the nearest and closest model. That switch has 3 wires.
