First make sure that the water line to unit is functional. then check out the solenoid that feeds the water to the door for operation. If it is not working there will never be any water appearing at door. And if solenoid is good the switch that sends it power may be non functional.

I've done that before and there's no hope for it. Once you laid it down the freon got a air pocket in the compressor and it will no longer work. Guy from sears told me that laying them down ruins them.

The mechanism that directs freezer air into the refrigerator portion is not working properly and needs to be addressed.

When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

The lines may be clogged before or after the filter. If the hoses can be removed and flushed do so. If not you may require a service call to remove internal gunk due to hard water, calcium deposits, algae and more.

Please check if the freezer door gasket is sealed properly.
By switch do you mean the lever on the front of the door.
Check also the small door where the ice cubes go threw. Make sure it is closed.

An ice maker has 3 basic tasks:
1. Call for water.
2. Freeze.
3. Harvest.
Then the cycle repeats. There will always be some sensors that determine timing of those tasks. Home units usually have a bin level sensor (often an arm that's lifted as the bin fills) that can be locked in the up position to disable the ice maker.

If it's calling for water but not freezing, make sure the condenser is clean. (Sometimes they look clean but are plugged in the middle.) It has to get down to nearly 0 degrees to efficiently make ice, if it's not getting cold enough you may need a tech to figure out why.

If there's ice in the tray but it's not harvesting, clean the tray, hard water deposits can make the cubes stick in the tray.

there should be a pastic cap or covering at or near the top or bottom remove it and tighten the screws , some are done from the inside of fridge door

What you have is normal - it is intended to make a tight seal - something similar to pressurizing an airplane.

You should be able to get back in with no problem after about 30 seconds - time it on your watch

And wipe the vaseline off - it is both counter productive and may cause the plastic in your door seals to degrade.

The socket that holds the bulb may have a burnt wire or the door switch that operates the light may be bad.

Sometimes the drain can clog with ice. If this is it - simple fix. Empty the freezer and find the drain. Put hot water in the drain with a turkey baster or try using a hair dryer to thaw the ice and let the water drain. A small amount of water drainage through this drain is normal. The water sits in a tray underneath and evaporates helped by heat from the compressor. If the drain plugs, the water will build up in the bottom of the freezer and become an ice block.

My refrigerator did this when the fridge temperature control door got stuck open and froze everything in the refrigerator. I tracked down the problem to a connection in my water supply filter. I just removed the filter and spliced the line. I doubt the same thing happened to you but you can probably find the leak by tracing the water supply to the ice maker/water dispenser.

Check your owners manual troubleshooting. See if you find an answer. Please be more specific. Sounds like it's "stuck" in defrost mode, since it uses electrical heating elements to make the freezer coils melt ice off, but only lasts long enough to remove the collected ice. I would guess the unit runs constantly, or cannot maintain temperature. If the defrost cycle is not working there is a timer not working, or relay, or somehow a very rare short in the defrost system.
