It's the pump for the icemaker/water dispenser. When it goes bad, it just starts pumping water into your icemaker until it overflows into your freezer. You simply have to replace the pump. It's happened to mine twice.

You can very easily replace the pump yourself in about 3 to 5 minutes, and the pump only costs about 48 dollars.

Here's a link to the cheapest place to buy the pump: http://www.easyapplianceparts.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=RS22AQXKQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

The first time I had this repaired, the repairman charged me over 300 dollars. I did it myself the last time. All I used was a pair of pliers.

Good luck!

Water setteling on bottom of freezer side and freezing also leaking. 2 fridges both doing the same thing . leaking on the inside and freezing and underneath water is leaking.


Clean out the defrost drain. There is a drain in the freezer that lets all the defrost water run under the fridge. If that gets clogged then all the water runs into the freezer and can even leak onto the floor

Roper Refrigerator - manufactured 12/99 - RT18DKXH W00


tata75,
Happy to assist you,

you said,
For the past three days, water has been leaking/freezing at an alarming rate. The freezer had about 2 inches of ice built up and the bottom of the refrigerator is holding water, too. Both crisper s were FULL of water. I don't know if the ice maker connection is broken or what. Looks like I have to cut off the cold water completely to the sink to get it to stop.

Sounds like the ice maker or its line is leaking the water to me. And obviously it will freeze in the freezer.
