Maybe the outside handle was tweaked from using it too heavily while trying to open that frozen door- did you use a gentle hand when trying to open it? or did you have a 500 pound gorilla grunting while trying to rip the handle from the door? Just a guess, but a mechanic may have to go into the door to see if the handle is broken or if a connecting rod is bent

There's a rod that goes from the handle to the latch. Sounds like the "ear" that the rod goes into, on the handle, has broken off. HTH. -Jim
