How do I remove the ice storage bin that is stuck in the door of my freezer?

I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 106.4442603. The ice storage bin can't be removed from the door. It is stuck and I can't release it. I have followed the directions but still cannot remove it from the door.

Thanks for the the tip. I thought mine was not releasing due to a faulty latch but turns out that wasn't the problem. Mine seemed stuck in the center. I removed all ice. Then poured a cup of boiling water into the hole with the stainless blades to melt anything else. After the second cup, the bin was loose and popped right out easy. There were large blocks of ice lodged in the center and bottom of the unit which had the center frozen in place. After an hour of trying other methods not realizing the ice was frozen throughout the center which you can't see from the top. Sears tech should have mentioned this rather than trying to sell us a part.

The design of this thing is horrible. I would prefer to make ice manually than deal with it. I got so frustrated the a while back; when I did finally get the thing off the door, I took off the cheap push button mechanism. That did the trick the last time I had to mess with it. This time, still did the same thing everyone is complaining about. In order to get it off the door I had to manually turn the metal thing that turns ice into the chopper. It was stuck. Once I loosed it, it came right out. Never a gain will I go with one that hasn't been greatly improved in the door.
