This could be a problem with the compressor.

When a compressor won't start and “clicks,” this indicates it (the compressor) is locked up and cannot start so it clicks off on an overload thermal (temperature) protector. If the compressor only runs for a short time then clicks off it is likely drawing too much amperage, overheating and cutting off on the overload protector. Nothing other than replacement can be done with a compressor that is locked up or drawing too much amperage as it is a problem with the internal components of the compressor.

It is absolutely crucial that the condenser coils are clean and the condenser fan motor, if there is one, operates properly or the compressor will overheat and go off on the overload protector. This handy condenser brush makes cleaning your refrigerator condenser coils a snap.

The compressor can be replaced but this is very expensive ($400- $500 parts & labor) due to the fact that the refrigerant needs to be reclaimed from the system and the compressor refrigerant lines unsoldered, new lines soldered on and new refrigerant charged into the system. This is something only a trained and licensed repair person can do. Compressors are part of the "sealed refrigerant system", many manufacturers warranty the components of this system for an extended period of time, usually 5 years from the purchase date.

It was working but stopped blowing cold air.


There is a concealed fan that serves to distribute the cooled air between the two cabinets and 'stir' it to avoid cold spots and that fan isn't running currently.
Go to the link below and enter your full model number to see if Sears has an illustrated breakdown of your Roper. This will show you where the fan is located and you can then decide if you want to DIY or call a pro.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues
Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

Freezer works fine,refrierator not cold.


Check to see if the fan is running in the frezzer side. This is called the evaperator fan and it blows the cold air from your evaperator to the ref side to cool it. If this is not running then your ref will not be cooling at all.
