First, turn off the water supply to the refrigerator. This will stop any water supply for cups and glasses also. Second, check the water solenoid. It is usually at the lower back where the water supply comes in. It may just need cleaning. If not replace it. Turn off the power. Unplug the wires to the solenoid. Disconnect the pipes to the solenoid and remove it from the refrigerator. Flush it out with hot water. If it has calcium buildup, soak it in vinegar for an hour, and then wash it with hot water, dry it with a cloth, and reinstall it.

Somehow you need to add heat to thaw things out.
Even if you can thaw the radiator out you may have caused damage to the cooling system/engine block.
Adding heat is easier said than done if you do not have access to a garage. If you have access to an electrical outlet you can try using a hair dryer and also place some 60-100W incandescent light bulbs in the engine compartment and put some blankets or something over the car hood to keep heat in. Or use a small electric space heater under the engine (if there is room).

Here are some general tips that should help you understand and resolve your door problem:

The freezer door popping open when you close the refrigerator door normally indicates a good condition of door seals. This can be normal if the refrigerator door is closed quickly or slams shut. Air passages between the freezer and refrigerator allow this to happen. It should not happen if the refrigerator door is closed slowly and gently.
The refrigerator should be leveled with a slight back tilt so that doors swing gently shut. This can be adjusted if necessary. A 1/2 bubble of back tilt is normal. This should cause the refrigerator door to shut without slamming. It will also allow the freezer door to swing closed if it pops open.
To help the freezer door swing shut, try the following tips:
  • Lubricate the freezer door hinges with sewing machine oil or 3-in-one oil (not WD-40).
  • Rub some petroleum jelly on the freezer door seals to help lubricate it and maintain a better seal.
  • Load the freezer door with heavier items to provide ballast and encourage it to swing shut.
  • Check your refrigerator and freezer door to make sure that they are hanging level on the hinges. Misalignment of one or both doors can cause a door to hang up and stay open.

Either the ice maker is jammed or there is an electronic failure.

Sounds like the dial is stuck to me, it depends how the room temperature is because every time door opens on the fridge, normally try half way first and adjust accordingly. Try freeing dial off so it will move.
