I have a Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator. The Fridge is up

Customer Question

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Refrigerator. The Fridge is up top and freezer on the bottom. The Ice Maker container is located up top in the fridge. The container is full and frozen shut. I can not open it to clear it and I can not dispense ice. How can I get it open to empty it of the ice blockage

The only thing you can do is unplug the refrigerator and if you can pull the bucket forward at all then use a hair dryer to speed up the process. Otherwise you'll need to leave the unit unplugged until enough ice melts out that you can pull out the ice bucket.
