    absolutely., if your settings are set to a low temp and, the refrig/freezer is warm. its the compressor.

    The compressor has lost its ability to preform its task. the compression rate is very low.

Freezer works, but has some ice forming and refrigerator not cooling.


The refrigerator half of a refrigerator/freezer does not produce any cold! The refrigerator is cooled by transferring air from the freezer to the fridge. The fridge temperature setting controls a flapper between the freezer and the fridge. There should be a fan which blows air from the freezer into the fridge (through the damper).
If the ice forming in the freezer is concealing the cooling coil and air can not move through the coils, then the overall result will be a warm freezer (even though there may be ice in one location) and a warmer yet fridge. This can be tested by unplugging the fridge and allowing a complete thaw. If the ice is the cause of the problem, then it should work for a short while until it freezes up improperly again
:o).

I have a Roper RT21LMXKQ00 Freezer wont freeze


The problem is a defrost problem. The freezer coil has frost on it and thus restricts the cold air from flowing. This affects the refrigerator as it gets its cold air from the freezer. The ice will not make if the temperature is above 12*F and this also is why ice cream is like mush.

I have a roper refrigerator and the top is freezing but the bottom barely get cold


Sorry it took me so long to get back to ya!
It sounds as if the return air ducts have frozen over.  the square holes your talking about are returns. so lets follow these instructions for cleaning the drain and while your at it you can def the return air at the same time. 
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order
After doing this let me know how it turns out. Your drain may not be plugged but these instructions will get you to the returns and cleaning the drain will save you problems later on as well. Peyton

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.

You need hands on service.
