Question about Refrigerators
I'm afraid to use too much force as I might damage the door doing so.
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The door is probably frozen shut with ice. You may try to melt the ice around the gasket.
If the door has guide rails the only thing you can do is shut the unit down for 24 hours and hope that is enough time to melt the ice on the rails.
The problem with doors on rails is, if you do not close them flush, warm air can get in and ice everything up. They can get out of alignment and create a open gap.

SOURCE: Door difficult to open
Simple fix! A small puddle of water near the fridge led me (indirectly) to this fix. Our model is a fridge only, no ice or water dispenser and nothing spilled inside. Upon closer inspection I found a narrow tray along the back wall above the crisper drawers with a drain hose leading under the unit. Apparently it's a condensate drain, a plugged one at that! I cleaned it out, yuk, and soon discovered it serves a dual purpose... as a vent to help relieve the pressure from the vacuum created immediately after closing the door. It has renewed our love affair with this fridge. Hoo Hoo!

Water is collecting on the bottom of the freezer and freezes then it becomes so much it starts to leak out side the freezer door. get about 1/4" thick. Is there a leak some where? Take about 2 days to form.

yes you can.remove two screws from under one side pull it away slightly and it will come away.you will then have one housing on both sides left in the fridge wall,they will have a little pressure on them from the springs. just prise them away. you will need help to replace them, as you need pressure against the spring to keep the door closed. you can buy springs and housings seperately from camec there is left and right housings.give me a call if you need to ..
