Check the wires to the heating element for the flap most likely they are broken under the hinge cover on the top of the door with the flap lift the plastic cover and you will find the worst set up for sliding wires I have ever seen if you want a long term fix cut a section of the wires out (making sure the fridge has been unplugged) and solder & heat shrink a section of flexible good quality wire in this area making sure the solder joints are far enough away so the movement is not working the joins.
