Question about GE Refrigerators
I've had my fridge for quite some time and have never changed a filter. Does this model have a filter and if so, where is it located?

The Roper ref is basically a Whirlpool ref. The filter on a side by side unit usually is down the botton in the grille area slightly to the left of the center post. The grille will have a round hole opening, and filter should be there. The other place is in the ref section at the top rear right hand corner. The other possibility is that the unit may NOT have a filter. Not all units had them. If the unit is older than 5 yrs or so, ir propably did not have one and thus the external filter your parents were using. Or your parents took the filter out and the opening is empty. These units have an automatic by pass in them so they can be used without a filter or that an external one could be used.

Hi, The filter is in the upper right hand corner of the fresh food section. Turn the filter cup counter clockwise to remove it. There will be a filter cartridge in the cup that you replace.
Please let me know if this has been helpfull or if I can assist you further

Most likely , the problem is a bad defrost heater , pt # WR51X10101 , but I would still suggest going thru the motions to make sure . The heater runs about $45.00 . Pull the refrig out and remove the 8 " x 10 " panel . Behind this panel , is the main control board . Unplug the refrig . Remove the BLUE plug from the board , with 3 larger wires going to it . Looking at the blue plug , the sequence will be wire1,wire2,space,wire3 . Get a short piece of insulated wire , and strip about 1/4 inch from each end . Insert 1 end into wire2 , and the other into wire3 . Plug the refrig back in . After about 3 min , look in the freezer , at the bottom , behind the crisper , look for a red glow . If no red glow , unplug the refrig , and reassemble the plug and cover . This no glow , indicates a shorted defrost heater WR51X10055 . It is also advisable to replace the defrost thermostat ( pt. number WR50X10068 ) when replacing the heater . To access these parts , you will have to remove the inside rear wall of the freezer . The heater , is at the bottom of the coils , held on with 2 screws , and the thermostat , is the 1 " cylinder , with a blue and pink wire going to it , clipped on the top left of the coils . If you do get a red glow , then the # 4 thermistor is bad . This tells the main control board , the temp of the coils , if they need defrosted , when they are thru defrosting . This thermistor is the 1 " long , torpedo looking piece , clipped on the top left of the coils , with 2 white wires going to it . Part number WR55X10025 . It would be advisable to also replace the # 5 thermistor , located at the bottom of the freezer , slightly in front of the drain , also with 2 white wires going to it , slid into a housing . This thermistor , is the freezer thermistor , which tells the control board , the freezer temp and when to cycle off due to selected temperature
