You will have to open the cover on the door. W D-40 is the best lube to use. Do NOT use W D-40 where it makes contact with the ice chute!

Frost builds up in dispenser area .hard to open because of frost buildup.


The ice dispensor flap is not closing completely , causing the frost in the inside shoot and on the bottom of the dispensor . Sometimes caused by a broken ice guide ( clear piece attached to the arm that activates the dispensor on the door ) it hits against the flap , not letting it close . Model number would have helped more .

Ice maker chute icing up


The flap is probably not closing properly. Dispense some ice, then open the freezer door and look to see if the flap is still slightly open. If so, you will have to take the front cover off of the control panel and clean the muck off of the flap mechanism and also clean the solenoid. I have to do this about 2X year. Not a big job, but be careful.

Bottom of ice maker/dispenser frosting over


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced or something is wrong with the mechanism. The problem you describe is almost always air leakage around that flap.
Post back if you need more help.

Frost buildup on ice/water dispenser


Is the trap door flap closing properly where the ice comes through the door? If open, warm air would be coming in frosting and maybe iceing things up
