Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator
We have a Whirlpool American style side by side fridge freezer which we bought from the previous owner of our house last year. It was working fine but found last weekend that we could not open the freezer door. It is stuck solid. At first the ice would not come out of the dispenser either so I wondered if it had made too much ice and was somehow stopping it from opening. I switched it off overnight and this morning managed to get ice from the dispenser but still can not open the door. Any ideas?

Trying to open door?? does it feel as if top wants to open ad bottom of door is being stuck shut? or mabye a package of frozen food has shifted of a shelf and is holding the door shut, if so brute force will solve that one.if it feels like held at bottom sounds as if youmight have a clogged defrost drain tube.drain water backing up onto freezer plor and holding door shut. even then forcing door open is only way then removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over.
