Question about Roper RT18DKXKQ / RT18DKXKT Top Freezer Refrigerator
18 cubic foot top mount Roper refigerator,mfg by Whirlpool, approx age 10 yrs.
Unit would not keep frozen cold, found compressor is not running, but fan in Freezer is, light is on. Occasional clicking, sounds like it was trying to pull in compressor.
Removed starter (klixon 8ea and klixon 4tm). Measured ohms on pins of compressor. Multimeter shows continuity between pins, but not to casing on compressor, correct to assume not a compressor problem??
Looking next at failure of starter (sounds like it has sand in it) or what do you think next??
Appreciate your comments.
Yes the "relay" on your unit has burnt out. if you shake it and pepper looking pieces come out of it that will verify that you need to replace the relay.
nice work finding the exact problem by yourself and now all you have to do is buy a relay and plug it in to get things back to normal.
also be sure to clean the coils under the unit as when the compressor gets too hot it will cause the relay to fail. it is very common and you can fix this yourself.
