A short burst of WD-40 or Triflow into the keyway, then insert and remove your key a few time. After that, insert the key and turn back and forth, it should smooth right out.

SOURCE: Get the Lock Off the Door

With the door open you will find a shackle release lever inside of the compartment in the upper right hand corner. To release the shackle push the lever to the right then the shackle will open. Good luck.

Overhead light will not come on when door is opened

Press and hold the Lock button until the light blinks (about 10 seconds). A single blink indicates that the timer is reset to 1 1/2 minutes. Repeat the procedure and the light will blink twice, resetting the time to 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat again for a 3 1/2 minute interval, etc. up to a maximum of four blinks and 4 1/2 minutes.

Freezer door "locks" or is hard to open, if opened a few minutes prior?

This is normal. Freezers have a vent port to let high moisture out. When you open the door moisture laden air enters. When the door is closed the hot air from outside expands and leaves through the vent port. This creates a vacuum in the freezer that lasts a few minutes. No problem

VW CC 2010 fuel door will not open

If you're experiencing problem under winter cold weather condition, heat the fuel door using an hair dryer blowing air in surface and into the joint.

Once it's warm up tap the fuel door with the palm of your hand during somebody else is operating the trigger. It should work.

Once it's open, apply silicone spray or lub on mecanism and hinges to avoid reoccurence.
Hope it will help
