Question about Roper RT14DKX Top Freezer Refrigerator

Water in refrigerator

From what I can tell, the water in my fridge is due to a clogged drain line. How do I find where it is? I have a Roper model # RT18DKFXW01 and it leaks about a quart of water a day. HELP!!

    i've taken out the freezer bottom and found ice everywhere. i've cleaned out the ice but still can't find a drain hole to unclog.
    anyone know where the drain hole is?

    i'm dripping down into my fridge through one of the square holes on the right hand side of the fridge.

Will not self defrost drain hose seems clogged


Do you have water under the fridge? If not, then it is not the drain house, it's the switch, control board or heater element

Samsung refridgerator freezes due to clogged drain line.


I would look for bad door gaskets. Sounds crazy but if you have bad gaskets, you will let in more moist air and the freezer will freeze up faster. If the fridge is freezing up I would look at the slide from the freezer to the fridge and see if it is stuck open. During the defrost cycle the unit should drain and fill the drain pan, but the normal operation of the compresser should be able to evaporate the water with ease. Look at the door gaskets and the vent. Good luck

How do I clear a plugged defrost coil drain line?


You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of 1/4 inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

Water is getting into the refrigerator. there is


If the fridge has the freezer on top - the problem is in clogged drain under the evaporator.Whenever the defrost cycle is activated (every 6-12 hours), the water will drain not to the drain pan underneath the fridge, but into the air vents between the sections. Depending on the make/model to get to the drain line you may need either:
  • to remove the back cover in the freezer section;
  • remove the bottom of the freezer section;
  • remove the console with controls on the ceiling of the fresh food section
  • get behind the fridge, find the drain line going to the pan under the fridge remove the drain line and clean.
Good luck.

Good job! most people do not know about the evaporator drain.
I would check the tubing to the icemaker, icemaker inflow valve and, water filter.

Roper RAX 5133AWP WASHER WONT DRAIN


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Water in bottom of refrigerator coming from freezer (not really sure of the exact model as I'm not home to double check).


If water appears on the floor in front of the refrigerator once or twice a day, it could be due to a clog in the defrost drain tube. The usual evidence of a clogged drain in a side-by-side refrigerator is ice under the bottom basket in the freezer compartment, in addition to a puddle of water on the floor. Try watching the YouTube videos like this one:

Whirlpool Custom Series refrigerator leaks -Model ET18JKXSN05


It sounds like the line you found is for draining the water from the defrost cycle. It should drain the water from melting the ice into the pan at the bottom so it will evaporate. Sounds like its being clogged is the cause of the water in your fridge.
