I'd have to check my service history to find out exactly what was replaced, but I believe there is a cable in the door that is pulled when the handle is pulled. Imagine a bike shifter or brake cable with a plastic housing. Water was entering the housing and freezing, causing the cable to become stuck until it thawed.

This part was replaced under warranty about 8 years ago and has been fine since.
