Hatch won't open on my 2010 Nox. Liftgate fuse is fine. What might be the problem?
Do you mean manually or remotely?
Did you check the position of the Liftgate Switch above the rear view mirror?
If it's off, I don't think the liftgate will work with the remote, not sure about manual mode.

Funny think. This morning it was freezing cold out, hit the power hatch button and the motor was winding out but the gate wasn't lifting. Same thing second time. 3rd time had to get out and give it some help to break the icy moisture seal before it could lift.

Anybody here of someone blowing a motor or recking anything in winter situations like this. Hope I didn't do any damage or strip some gears or something...sounded under a lot of stress until I helped it break free.

I doubt you damaged anything, there should be protectors for that circuit so you'd probably blow a fuse first.
Next time, maybe just open it manually if it doesn't open the first or second time cause of ice.
Or give it some taps around the seal to try and break the ice first then try opening it.

I faced the same problem and i found that you must have all 4 doors unlocked to have it to open from the handle.

If it freezes shut you need to lube the seal so that it is easier to open. I do it to all the seals before winter so that all the doors won't freeze shut.

Speaking of lube, any ideas on what I can get for my power window runners. I guess the felt stuff that the window passes through. When my passenger window gets wet it makes a horrible buzzing sound. I think it's killing the motor. I also took it to the dealer many times then they finally lubed it and it went away for awhile. I don't roll down the windows much, but when I do I don't want to hear the noise or burn the motor. It's almost as if the runner is to tight against the window.

I've used WD40 wirh previous cars, and I've never had a problem with them sticking. Don't know if it's because of the WD40, or the car's better design. Good luck !

A mechanic friend of mine says to spray a silicone lube and wipe it down on all the door trim and moulds. Says this will repell moisture and prevent that icy build up sticking your doors closed. I imagine wiping this along the trim the window slides up and down against would work just as well. I'm going to apply some today.

Wd40 is not the thing to use. It actually will dry out the seals.

I actually use fluid film on my seals and it works like a charm.
