Gas cap problems on 09 Accord sedan?

When you press the fuel door release inside the cabin, the door doesn't release. The first time they replaced the cable. The second time they said the owner (us) is not "pushing it correctly" ... idk how that works. She said we were told we have to push on the little door/flap thing and HOLD it, not just push and go. However, this has not worked either.

Are we really doing something wrong, because her suggestion isn't working. I know we will have to take it in again, but I'm just wondering.

Oh, and the third time they told us it was the ice, but that's not it either. The car was clean, just washed actually.

Have you tried pushing down all the way? I know sometimes I push it down half way and it feels like it has released when in reality it hasn't. So everytime I go for a fill-up, I just remember to push all the way down until I know I can't push the lever down any further. And I also push it twice just for good measure.

We have, yes. Just a strange but seemingly random problem.
